    I am one of the pipe smokers who also enjoys Cigars. However, I went to a private out of state Undergraduate school, worked as a substitute music teacher for 18 months, and am now getting a Graduate degree at a private school in Chicago, with only maybe 4-6 gigs a months....SO - cigars don't happen often. I instead smoke these:

    Here's an idea of how big they are. They are good BTW. Not as creamy and oily as a big maduro wrapped full sized, but still enough of that spicy cigar flavor to hold me over from time to time.

    Anyway, I've been looking for a tobacco pouch that I like, and that's easy to toss in a jacket pocket for sometime. Finally I realized I had tons of these empty tins lying around, and Voila!

    That's Key Largo BTW, the tins been open for awhile so there aren't any full flakes left, but it's still super delicious.

    Could also use an empty tin of MacBaren's Vanilla Cream Flake as a tobacco pouch. Nice and pocket size and able to hold up to 50 grams.

    Cool. I've reused pipe tobacco tins in the same way; it works as long as you only have a day's supply in there...

    I carry a Penzance tin with my me when I leave the house. Holds 4-5 bowls easily and fits in your pocket.

    If at first you don't succeed, have another bowl.

    You need a poncho and a Colt SAA to go with those cheroots.

    i do the same thing, i put pipe tobac in some old tin. usually a small tin that fits into a pocket. lately i have been wanting a good zip pouch, with some sort of old time logo on the outside of the pouch, like swr ch h+h. i have been in contact with a forum member hobojoe, and he is considering making a pouch of the same. tins come in handy as tobac pouches.

    take care.

    I love how Clint would have the same one in his mouth all day and would never get smaller or go out... hell he could probably swim through a river and come out on the other end with it still lit.

    I carry a gun... because a cop is too heavy!

    If your baccy is a bit wet, or if you're planning on leaving it in there more than a day, I think I would line it with a coffee filter. Should eliminate any chance of sticking or rusting.

    This is how I carry mine:

    Baccy is dried some on the coffee filter, wrapped like a burrito, put back into a pouch and then into a glasses case I got at Wal Mart or the Dollar Store (don't recall). The spring closure holds it all well and there's room for a tamper, lighter, and maybe even a beater/cob if I so desire.

    I used to use an Altoids tin when I first got in this game. It worked fairly well until I forgot it in my car (filled with Walgreens Cough Syrup tobacco) for a few days. It grossed me out so much I vowed never to let tobacco touch bare metal again.

    Be the leaf.
