At next month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, Colibri will unveil a new case for those that like to take their cigars with them on the road.

The Colibri Explorer is a premium leather travel case and humidor that can carry up to a dozen Churchill-size cigars (7 x 54), holding six in each fabric mesh pocket. The two sides are joined by an innovative, protective tight-seal zipper.

The design of the pockets encourage some air flow and moisture within the Explorer, while the black Saffiano leather case is designed to provide protection from the journey, as well as from a mixture of the humidified air within the case and the ambient air, which helps keep the humidity level inside the case stable.

There is also a pocket integrated into the front exterior of the Explorer that provides space for a lighter and cigar cutter.

The Explorer will ship to stores in mid-August and comes with a suggested retail price of $250.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
