The Boveda Humi packs work great and may suit your needs. They can get a bit pricey, which is why I switched back to distilled water.

I bet they would do the trick but from what I've seen you have two options. 1) they are expensive because you have to replace them or 2) they are s PITA because you have to take a long time to " refill" them.

I would be more likely to go the heartfelt bead rout since they have 60, 65, and 70% RH tubes. The price I reasonable as well.

I just converted to kitty litter and I'm loving it. The 65rh heartfelt beads alone weren't doing it for me down here. I added some KL(held in an aquarium mesh bag) and it got things from 70 down to 65 over night. When they start getting too moist all you gotta do is put the sack on a paper towel in the microwave for 5 minutes and they're back to dry again. Did it last night as matter of fact. While they take up more space than hf beads I got a huge bag for half the price I paid for a large tube.

Is that more for humid climates? I am in a pretty dry climate (really fvckin dry lately) here and need to provide moisture to my humidors.

From what Ive read I think it goes either way you just have to spray a little DW on it until you get it locked in on the RH you want. In your case though the beads may be better, I don't really know I can only speak from what I've read since my experience is with a crazy humid environment.

I forgot my smokes tonight, so I'm hoping my boss offers me one. I've been trying for every other day lately, and today is the day.

Smoking a LP 9 while listening to some Buddy Guy.... They suit each other well.
