    As someone who always feels like time is a premium (yah, I'm one of those weirdos who can't stand the fact that I have to sleep, and would rather just make it on 3-4hrs so I can do other stuff I consider more worthwhile) I have a hard time sitting down for a smoke, and doing absolutely nothing. I'll usually bring a book or the newspaper, I'll light a cigar, then fart around on my phone for the hour+ it takes to smoke. Reading about that particular cigar, reviews, new cigars to try. That's great for the first 1-2 times trying a new one. After that, it devolves into a silly waste of time on the Internet/social media. It takes away the relaxation if I feel like I'm useless while I do it. 

    So to you seasoned veterans, do you have any go-to activities while you smoke, beyond just sitting back and staring at the sky? That has a time and place for me as well, but if I'm smoking 2-3 times a week I have a hard time fully enjoying it if I'm mentally and physically idle!

    I understand complete. I used to do that but now I build custom fly rods, tie flies, work on something other than my phone and take a lot of breaks to enjoy the stick

    Could you let us know more why you got rid of the PC?  I couldn't find many reviews of the PC honestly.  I like the look of the PC more (and it's considerably cheaper), it feels a bit cleaner but I'm curious why you didn't like it at all.

    Sure. But get what you want and you prefer...its your money.

    1. i was always having to stuff tissues near the foot so the sticks would slide up and down and get damaged since I travel with various sizes. The leather in the pj case keeps my sticks snug. 

    2. The compartment on the pc was not a tight seal and gave the cigars back and forth movement increasing the chances of damage. This doesn’t happen with my pc. 

    3. The stitching in the pc is subpar compared to the pj. Plus the leather on the pj is gorgeous.

    4. The cigar stand elastic band didn’t really keep the stand in place so it would fall out and roll around. Plus I rarely use a cigar stand

    5. My v cut didn’t fit well in any pockets 

    6. The pj has a handle which I thought I would never use but find myself using more and more. I also like the way the pj case looks when closed.

     

    i feel that the pc case for a good “for now” case but I feel like the pj is my forever case.

    Again this is just my opinion but you get what you pay for. I spent the extra cash and am very very happy with my pj case. I wouldn’t trade my pj for any other case and I have had a lot of others. 

    Why not just buy them both and return the one you don’t like?  I’m not sure they are returnable but it’s worth’s try....

    Interesting, that's helpful to know, thanks!  Does your friend have any issues with crushed cigars?  Is the PC overall size bigger (thicker) than the PJ or are they pretty close to one another?

    If you could rebuy, would you get the PC instead?

    Google the reviews for the pc and the pj case..there even some on YouTube by dutchcigars.

     

    i had a pc and got rid of it after a week....the pj blows it out of the water in terms of quality

    The Peter James case?

    How do you find the cigar pouch at protecting the sticks? Any issues with crushing or humidity problems?

    Its great. I use it for travel and everyday smoking. I throw even throw it in my boat bag for a day of fishing. The back and sides of the pouch are hard so only the front is soft but I’ve never had any issues with my sticks. I’ve even dropped it a few times. 

     

    yes peter James case.
