Reasonably well made item but only got small to medium sized cigars. Nice accessories for humidification but size is a limiting factor with this one. anything more than a ring gauge of about 50-52 causes the lid to stay open.
I bought a gray one and liked the feel. For a longer trip. But within a couple of days the gray color started flaking off. So I complained to Famous. They said they will exchange it AND TEST the new one before they send it out. Well the new one flaked just as much looking like tattered dishcloth. The humidifier also start to fall apart. So I just gave up after loosing $85
I got this a while back and am very happy with it. I have one of each:1 Csonka 4 count1 Xikar 5 count1 Easy Dor1 Leather Travel 10 countAll of these are here on famous. This one is tied for 1st place with my Xikar. The Xikar is very sturdy and has an amazing seal so it cant be ignored.The Csonka allows you to carry 4 cigars plus extra water or PG solution (I carry one of each) and a cutter. My cutter is wedged in the recessed area of the lid. It is also cedar lined. I keep a small boveda pack in with the cigars. I put a hygro in with 4 cigars for a test (without boveda) and it stayed between 65 and 75 percent humidity. I still use the built in humidifier but keep a small boveda just to keep the humidity perfect. (I also keep a small boveda in the xikar as well) I have read some bad reviews on the other size csonkas. I may have just gotten a good one but mine is great.
This was a wedding gift I purchased for my husband. He was thrilled when he received, but after only one month, the "soft Napa exterior" surrounding the case began falling off. The case looks pathetic now - full of patches of grey pewter that fall all over the place each time he uses it. Very sad I purchased as I had hoped this would be a fabulous travel gift set for him.
I bought this unit a few days ago and I must say I feel cheated. The case is not as sturdy as advertised. There is no way it can hold a constant humidity level as it does not shut tightly. There is no seal on the edges. The interior cedar sheets are extremely thin. Very disappointed.
I purchased the Csonka Valet Humidor in tan but when it arrived it was supposed to be covered in leather but mine was vinyl material. For the high price of this item it should be covered in leather. I feel it isn't made well enough and is not worth the asking price.
Smoked a cigar in my Jeep with this air purifier plugged in. Left it plugged in for the over 24 hours and the car smelled exactly like it normally did 24 hours after smoking in it. Don't waste your money like I did. Overall tried using it in different combinations/time periods for a few months, never noticed a difference.
THIS CLOAKER DOESN'T WORK. Don't waste your money.
Have had this travel humidor for a little more than a year... The case is POORLY made with apparently bendable sheet metal hinges. The top and bottom have never matched correctly, compromising any kind of seal that may have been intended. For the price I thought I was getting something well-made and with some level of quality. What a HUGE disappointment...
An Excellent product, have had one for four years now and it has stood up to all the abuse of daily use and still looks brand new. Much more luxurious than a plastic herfador. I fold a boveda pack up and put it in the square recess, works great, lasts for months.
