    Read the articles and saw a few you tubes on Cooladoors.
    Why I didn't figure this one out is beyond me but this is a superb application.
    I ordered a 120 qt Igloo cooler, clear un-sented water beads and a few find mesh food straining bags.
    All for 90 bucks and shipped via Amazon Prime to my house today; (2 day)
    There will be 20 or so boxes going into this baby tonight.
    I'm pumped.

    Very nice! Just curious....did you do the bleach treatment and multiple rinse to purge the plastic smell out before loadin' her up?

    Wiped down with a damp cloth then dried.
    There was no determinable smell / odor when it arrived.
    I must say it is working like a champ holding at a perfect (for me) 68 percent humidity and temping out at 70 degrees.
    I check it daily BTW.
    I've even thrown in my Cortico tins to help them along.

    I used several coolidors for years, and I can say they by far the best humidor you can "buy". :) They hold humidity extremely well, block out all of the light, and simply gets the job done.

    They also require much less maintenance then a large cabinet style humidor. Good luck with your new humis!

    The only addition to your coolidor is one or two “Oust Fans” (without the scent) they move the air occasionally to help distribute temp and humidity.

    Enjoy!
