Nearly crushproof and watertight up to 100 feet, the Caddy is built to withstand a fall from a high ledge, a close encounter with a golf cart wheel or a swim in a raging river. A silicone gasket around the rim of the lid will lock in your cargo airtight and lock out almost anything else. The rigid, plastic exterior has hard lines and a burly construction analogous to an ammo box. Push open the clasps -- give it a little elbow grease because they don't come apart easily -- and pop the lid, which releases a suction pucker of reassurance. The interior is lined with foam padding, undulated to cradle your smokes. If you're really paranoid, there is also a lanyard on the side of the box to wrap around your wrist.
Of course, with protection being its main goal, the case is not style-conscious, so it might look a bit out of place at a fine restaurant or an upscale cigar lounge. You can have the Cigar Caddy in any color as long as it's black. The case comes in four sizes: two-stick capacity, five, 10 and 15. Except for the two-stick model, each is equipped with a humidification device placed in the lid. The cases have suggested retail prices between $20 and $30.
