I have empty 1lb. pipe tobacco bags, would those work better than freezer bags? Would a small silica gel packet in the bag help with the moisture?I use a lot of Zip Lock bags, but for long-term storage, I have to keep them within my humidor, to prevent gradual drying. Freezer bags are a more effective vapor barrier than standard storage bags, but both still allow the loss of moisture. (I sometimes use a large Zip Lock to allow tobacco that is a bit too moist to slowly dry out.)
Any kind of jar with a snug lid will maintain tobacco at the original level of moisture--both a feature and a risk.
The 1 lb pipe tobacco bags work best in my experience. They are made out of a harder plastic, and they are printed over most of the surface with ink to seal the pores in the plastic, this retards moisture migration. Double Ziplock bags next best imo. Single freezer bag next. Single Ziplock least.I have empty 1lb. pipe tobacco bags, would those work better than freezer bags? Would a small silica gel packet in the bag help with the moisture?
Thanks Bob, I was looking for that link, remembering you've shared it before. Those would work well, but some want the fiberboard type bottom, it could be a fiber cardboard compressed of some kind.When it's made of plastic, it is called a low profile jar.

Yeah, but that won't stop us from looking until we find it! It could be a special order type of thing.Checked out those links - no beans. Can't find these anywhere
