While Brigham is better known for its pipes and pipe accessories, the company has dabbled in cigar accessories over the years, notably with cigar cases and humidors. And while not new, as they have been available in Canada for several months, the company is releasing a line of travel humidors to the U.S. market this year, as well as other markets around the globe.

The humidors are offered in both 7-count ($32.99) and 14-count options ($41.99), and offer impressive protection for your cigars. Both have an IP68 rating, which the company says means it can be fully submersed in water to a depth of 33 meters for over 30 minutes without a leak. It can also resist direct compression of 1,000 kgs (2,204 lbs) and is also shock proof.

As for Brigham’s booth, it was part of the Sutliff Tobacco booth, since the company distributes them in the U.S. Due to travel restrictions, Brigham opted not to attend and instead have Sutliff handle their representation this year.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
