Naresh    I use a dry case with silica gel. That's a sufficient enough protection from moisture.

Silica gel absorbs moisture... it comes in a plastic jar and looks like blue colored tiny balls.

You use them according to the amount of equipment and the size of your dry case (an air tight container). When the silica gel turns pink or white is time to change the gel. You need not buy new gel just take the pink ones and reheat them in the sun or if you are short of time over a heated pan or microwave.
