Ziploc Weathertight. These are really good IMO. They seal beautifully. You can see the blue padding in the lid where it wraps around the lip of the container. The large one on the bottom has 6 clasps and the med & small (inside the med) have 4. I think I paid about $16 for the large. Short of a cooler with a good seal and a positive clamp closure I don't know if I've seen better candidates.

For reference I think the bottom one is currently holding 175 -200 cigars.

I got two of those for storing whole leaf. I did a test and there is still some leakage. I got some 3/8 foam seal, frost King I believe and added it to the top rim of the bin. They now seal air aight. I suggest you do the same or you may lose humidity.

Thanks for the heads up. After they've been in use for a couple weeks I'll have to start keeping an eye on fluctuations. Luckily the material is clear enough in some spots to read a hygrometer through.

I checked these out at Walmart last night but passed on them beacuse of a very, very strong plastic smell.
