I use a pouch for my Hal O The Wynd it is my daily smoke and it is easier to load my pipe from a pouch than the 100g tin but I will also carry a tin of some type of C&D burley and I have no problem loading out of their 2 oz tins
Barkar, I use a pouch for my. mid-day smoke cause my morning smoke is always different. I have 25+ open tins (all stored in Ball Jars) so what I put in my pouch lasts for 5 to 7 days, like I said my starting smoke varies. I have several pouches, zipper, folding and a removable one in my pipe bag. Seems to be just as many pouches to choose from as there are pipes!
I use small ball/mason jars (squat jelly type) that fit perfect in cup holder of the truck. I also use an old leather billfold that I use small ziplocks in. It has 3 areas, 2 for baccy and one for pipe cleaners/matches etc. Sometimes I just fill a ziplock and go!
I don't normally smoke out, here in Oklahoma that is almost impossible! But when I do go camping and I need a ouch I have a dedicated tin I use, it's a tin that used to hold mints, I chose it because the seal is air tight, it's small enough to fit in my pocket, holds about 8-10 bowls, and I really like the look! When I'm home I store my baccy in zip lock bags, or jars. Depending on how quickly I'll go through the baccy
If I'm out and about for a day, I grab a couple of metal cigar tubes to fill with the days smokes. I find that I can fit around two good bowls per, and it allows me to carry a few different blends around for variety. As I am never without my briefcase, I've modified the pen-holders to fit a half-dozen pipes; while the tubes fit nicely in the file pocket.
When I first started smoking I used my store-bought vinyl pouch a lot more often. But then I was smoking a lot more bulk aromatics than I do now. Lately I've saved an empty 50g tin of Erinmore Flake that fits perfectly in my pocket, like a little sardine can.
I carry a round tin only if I'm close to the end of it otherwise in the climate here they tend to dry out quickly if kept outdoors too long. I'm not even bringing up 100g tins a la Mc Baren, those are too unwieldy to carry around unless one needed to use it as a weapon .....
I have two, the first one I picked up in all places WalMart, for $10, that was years ago, made of leather and has a place to store one pipe, its used daily and still looks great and works great, its enough for the daily girnd, then at the Richmond Pipe show I picked up a two pipe pouch with bacy storage, tool space, cleaners, and extras, not too big or intrusive, and if you want to you can carry it by the little wrist cord, I do not, but you can. works great for travel and such because between the two of them I always have 3 pipes to rotate from and enough supplies to last.
