D. Marshall for Dunhill
This box is expertly made, and its slim design is particularly attractive since it can still accommodate seven cigars. But perhaps because it is so thin (with less air flow and room for condensation than its cousin--see below), or maybe because there is only one water-bottle-as-regulator, the cigars kept here were dry at the end of the test.

This box is an updated model of the one above, with two bottles and a partition between cigars and regulators. The two bottles worked far better than one, and cigars kept here were silky and ready to be smoked. The capacity of the D. Marshall is 16 cigars (though larger models are available). The finish, like all D. Marshall items, is artfully done, with a perfect fit between lid and box.

Ducas for Nat Sherman
The Ducas humidors, especially in the Crocodile finish, are fine products. Slimly designed, the Croc will still hold 15 cigars. If you tend to be tough on your "toys," a leather travel humidor might be your best bet, as it shows less wear and tear than wood. The drawback with this box is that its regulator failed to keep cigars fresh over an eight-day period. This humidor was hinged improperly, closing on us when we tried to load or remove cigars.
