Not Very Intense...

This condom gets 3 stars from me because it functions fantastically as a condom. You've got to have a pretty sensitive vaginal canal to be able to get anything out of these. On the plus side they are durable and won't break easily.
Published:
Pros:
No latex smell, comes lubricated, durable, reservoir tip.
Cons:
Bumps aren't easily felt, not for overly girthy guys.

extremely useful review
I love trying new things, and I was hoping these condoms would work their way onto my list of favorites, but alas, nothing about them really stood out to me.

The average condom comes in at 7.5" long, 2.04" wide at the base, and .002" thick. These condoms come in at 7.87" long, 2.04" wide at the base and along the shaft and head, and .002" thick. So longer guys rejoice, you win this round.

Girthy guys are still going to have a problem, and so will really long guys, but most guys will be just fine.

The design of this condom is a really great idea, for the ladies at least. The surface is covered in hundreds of little bumps. This is supposed to increase the pleasure on the female's end, but unless you're pretty sensitive to textured condoms these bumps probably won't do anything for you.

This condom does come lubricated, but if it isn't enough for you or you feel you need to add more during use, you can use your favorite water based or silicone based lube. Never ever use anything oil based, such as body lotion, petroleum jelly, mineral oil, or an oil based lube, with latex condoms as the oil can degrade the latex material and increase the risk of breaking.

There was no discernible latex smell that I could detect. I didn't personally taste them, but my fiance was holding one in his mouth before use and he says that while it didn't taste great the taste didn't bother him and didn't seem to linger. I couldn't taste it on him when we kissed.

You should store these condoms at room temperature. Protect them from prolonged periods of exposure to extreme high or low temperatures, moisture, direct sunlight and fluorescent light. If the condom is sticky or brittle or looks damaged, don't use it.

You use these the same way you use any other condom with a reservoir tip, pinch the tip to remove all the air, then roll down the shaft.

I've never had a Durex condom break. Ever. As long as you pay attention and make sure that you're not running on too little lubrication (the extra friction could cause tearing) you should be just fine.
Experience
So I know that I can feel some textured condoms. There have been a few that I absolutely loved. This one unfortunately doesn't fall into that category. Don't get me wrong, I will still use these, but only because they're still capable of catching semen.

To me they felt thicker than they should, I could really feel the latex (unfortunately not the bumps) but I think this might be due to the fact that lately we'd been using a lot of thinner "nothing there" condoms.

As a condom, it's great. Doesn't break easily, has a reservoir tip, relatively inexpensive. You know, pretty much everything I looked for in a condom. But for adding any "intense sensation" they were a big old failboat. I actually had to look them up before I figured out that they were supposed to be intense for me and not him.
Follow-up commentary
I've used these a few more times with my fiance, still nothing. I even tried it out on a toy larger than my fiance, thinking maybe if it was stretched more I could feel it better. Still no.

If you have a really sensitive vagina, you might like these. But otherwise, they're still only good for catching semen.

    Jul!a Nice review! I have these also and yeah, they really aren't that "intense", but they get the job done for covering my toys.

    They work just fine, there's nothing wrong with them as condoms, but ya, not all that stimulating, lol. Thanks Gardenvy

    condoms are a funny thing... personally i think that whole "ribbed for her pleasure" thing is a load of bollocks

    The weird thing is that I have used a condom on which I could actually feel the bumps and stuff. I just can't for the life of me remember which one it was, lol

    From a guys stand point what the heck did it feel like for him? Not all of us are girls here, so try to include more about that.

    It felt like a regular condom for him, if there was supposed to be something extra that he was supposed to feel, I would have covered that.
