Default Water Pillows

I went to Vegas a few months back and brought some cigars home with me. I bought a few pillows for the trip home and was just curious as to how long they last. My brother says as long as they're filled they're good, is that true?

I saw one guy at my B&M who had one it wasn't in the pouch, and it looked brownish, he claimed it was because he took his cigars out of the cello. I usually use the boveda pouches but they didn't have any at the time. I know they were only a buck but I dont want to throw them out if they are still good.

I have been using a few for over a year...just keep 'em filled with distilled water every three weeks or so and they are good to go.

I think the book on these is that they can be used from 3 to 5 times with good results. AFter that there is some diminished results but as long as you use DW they should give you positive results. I've had some that I used at least 5-7 times and after that they were pretty much useless.

my local shop sells them for somewhere around $1 ea. so if I get several months use out of one, I consider it a good bargain. never seen any discoloration though, but I can see how that could happen after long term use.

I've used some for months for my pipe tobacco, re-wetting them when they dry a bit. They haven't discolored, and keep my tabac very well. I've even had a few that dried out and after soaking them for a bit, they worked again.

Famous Cigars has them for $6 a dozen. I usually buy a dozen when I order something from them. I like to stick them in packages that go out.

Could be mold! These will get moldy if you're not careful. I prefer Bovedas, frankly.

That's been my experience. I have used a number of them for several years with no problems and great results.

Had some from the devil that lasted until I no longer used them (atleast 6 months), with no ill effects, re-filled them many times. They go on sale at the devil for less than 50 cents each if you are studious with bidding.

You can never have too many cigars, they are like an investment in good times.

I was using them in my ammocanidor for a couple of months until I bought beads. I passed them on to the guy I gave the can to cuz I had upgrade to a cooler. They were good to use in a pinch.
