Many of the cigar humidors that you will see reviewed are all finished with wood. Now there is nothing wrong with that, and they look stunning, but for those that want something a bit different, why not consider this leather cigar humidor from Megacra.
Megacra Cedar and Leather Desktop Cigar Humidor
While there are some makers of cigar humidors who focus on that sort of product, Megacra does not, and their range of products include many a million miles away from cigars.
However, that does not diminish the appeal of this cigar humidor, especially when you see how many positive reviews it has received since it was first released in 2018.
It is also one of the few cigar humidors which have a leather exterior, and that is why, unlike many humidors, anyone buying this one, has a color choice of either brown or black.
Who is This Product For?
Undoubtedly there will be many traditionalists who will only consider those cigar humidors with a wood finish and there is nothing wrong with that. However, for those who do not like following the crowd, or may even prefer leather finishes to wood, this cigar humidor is a great choice.
It will also appeal to those who do not like items which are too decorative, given its simplistic appearance, and when it is sitting on desk, it is relatively unassuming.
Beyond those who buy it for their own reasons and use, this cigar humidor will make an ideal gift so any family or friend of a cigar smoker, should consider this as a birthday, Thanksgiving or Christmas gift.
A cigar humidor is not a product that requires a great deal of assembly, which is why you will be pleased to know there aren’t dozens of parts to sort out.
With this one, you will receive the main humidor along with a cedar wood tray, a cedar wood divider, a hygrometer, a humidifier, and a care manual, which should help you use your humidor in the correct way.
Overview of Features
With the leather exterior being the most obvious difference between his cigar humidor and others we will mention that first. It gives the box a finish that looks superb, and there is even the option to have it either brown or black leather.
The interior is real Spanish cedar, and that is also the case with the divider and the tray. The divider is especially useful if you have two different brands or sizes of cigars and want to keep them apart, and it is also adjustable so you can create different-sized sections.
In terms of the functioning of the humidor, you have the humidifier which is easy to set up as well as a hygrometer to monitor the humidity levels.
How to Use It
Putting the small number of accessories that come with this humidor, such as the tray and the divider into their appropriate positions should be self-evident.
Additionally, it is obvious where both the humidifier and hygrometer, should be placed.
Beyond this, the only other aspect of using the humidor that you should know about is how to use the humidifier. First, only use distilled water.
Tap water must not be used under any circumstances as it contains elements that will cause issues with the humidity levels.
Fill a bowl with the distilled water and then place the humidifier upside down in the water so it sits about halfway. Leave it there for around 3 minutes and then dry off any excess water, before placing it in the humidor.

You may be a lover of cigars who likes this Megacra cigar humidor but may not necessarily need or want one which is as big as this one.
If so, and you only require a humidor with a capacity for up to 20 cigars, then the perfect alternative is the Megacra Leather Cigar Humidor.
It has all the same great features of the larger one we are reviewing, apart from a choice of colors … it only comes in black. However, its smaller size makes it perfect for sitting unobtrusively on a desk or lounge table, while it keeps your cigars in perfect condition.
Leather exteriors may not be the norm for cigar humidors, but that doesn’t stop this one from Megacra being highly desirable for both its appearance and its ability to keep cigars at the optimal humidity.
It also has a simplicity which we know many cigar lovers will also prefer, and you can even take your pick from either brown or black leather.
