HHHHIf it weren't for the lubricant issue, I'd be giving these five stars. There have been plenty of "large" condoms I have tried that are not actually large by most means. After a less than stellar experience with the regular version, I was sort of expecting that from these, but I'm glad they did these right.
Nice shape, Actually is a large condom, Lots of head room
Lubricant stops 2" below the base of the condom
Huge Head by Hugh Hefner...
Yup, if you didn't know, Playboy now makes condoms. Their condom line launched recently and have they have one about just about every type, ribbed, thin, large, studded etc. This particular condom has one of the biggest head spaces I have ever seen. My boyfriend is super happy with the shape and size of these condoms even if the lubricant is sub-par. Their length is great too. They have a good shape for larger guys and have not broken on us like the regular ones did when we tried them.

Compared to average condoms:
The thickness for this condom is the same as the average condom, .0027". For some reason it doesn't feel as thick as a Durex condom that claims to be the same thickness. I am not sure why that is. I'm not complaining!
If you need a thinner condom, Playboy does have one of those too.
The length is about 8.125". This measurement and all but the head measurement were taken to the best of my ability and compared physically against condoms that have confirmed measurements from their manufactures (still waiting to hear back from the Playboy condom site...). The average typical length of condoms labeled as "regular" is 7.25-7.5" long. This longer length is great for my guy. Because of his large head, it makes the potential length of the condom shorter. The reservoir tip is larger than it is on the regular condom, or at least it looks that way. It should hold about 2 1/2 teaspoons of cum before it starts to creep into the rest of the condom. I wouldn't recommend these condoms for guys longer than 7.5", especially if they ejaculate a lot.
The head width on this is very large. As I kept unfolding the condom, I wondered where it would end! Laid flat it is about 2.4" across and has no problem fitting on a dildo that is over 2" across at the head. My partner's head size varies, but it is sometimes even larger than that. He had no issues. I wasn't about to stop our sex session to measure his head! Average condoms only have a head width of 2.125". This is always too small for my partner, so he was pleased that this condom is much larger. It allows for much needed friction to feed his arousal. I like it too because I can feel his natural shape. LOVE!
Average shaft width is 2". According to the package and I confirmed with my measurements, this condom has a shaft width of 2.204. My boyfriend appreciates the extra room because it doesn't feel like a plastic bag strangling him. Average base width is also 2". This one is the same. It's good because for larger guys a tighter bottom will make it safer. It is less likely to slip off.
This condom is made of latex but it has a very low latex smell. YEAY! Now here is my one con about this condom, the lubricant literally stops two inches below the base of the condom. The lubricant is water based and very thin. You will need more lubricant even if you will only be using this for a short period of time.
They come in a black foil wrapper that says Playboy condoms on it with their signature bunny logo in gold, not silver like the regular condoms. They are easy to tear open. The box I got is a three pack, and the box looks a lot like the wrappers because it has the same bunny logo and coloring. A lovely little packet is included that shows how to use the condom and compares different contraceptive techniques. Each condom has its own expiration date printed on the package which is approximately three-four years from when it is made. Mine expire in 05/2015.

Follow-up commentary 2 months after original review
We had no complaints having used the rest of the box of condoms we received for this review. However, this isn't a condom I'm running out to buy again real soon. Unless it is bought in bulk, this condom is currently pretty expensive. There are coupons that I found on Groupon for $10 off your order which does make it more affordable.
