Definitive proof that size really matters!

The Size Does Matter is an ideal product for people on the go and couples who want discreet and convenient access to up to twelve condoms in a nondescript storage case. While the lock is questionable at best, the case itself is solidly made, easy to clean, and worth the affordable price.

The Size Does Matter is intended to discreetly hold and lock condoms inside while looking like a run-of-the-mill case. It could also be used to store other items as well. It is small enough to be easily portable and thrown into a purse or other bag so that you’ll have protection whenever and wherever you need it. This case comes in three colors: red, leopard print, and black, obviously depending upon your personal preference. I ordered this in the leopard print, thinking that it would be something different and that the pattern would be cute, but note that the black one would probably be more discreet since it is plainer-looking and more unisex as well. Even so, this case could easily pass as a coin purse or small cosmetics case.

Eden lists this case as having a "faux leather material." I found that the exterior of mine is a textured, ribbed plastic that feels like thick vinyl. This isn’t really the first thing that comes to mind when I hear the words “faux leather,” and judging from the picture, the red one appears to have the smooth, leathery texture that I would associate with this name. The inside is made of a shiny, black vinyl that should wipe down easily if you should find that any of your condom wrappers open and spill onto the material. It is very easy to wipe the exterior and interior clean with a damp cloth. The case has a slight plastic-y smell that I detected only when I held the case right up to my nose and sniffed it.

I measured the Size Does Matter as 3.25” long by 3.25” wide by 1.5” deep. According to the FYN website, the Size Does Matter can store up to twelve condoms; while it may be small, it holds a lot. Mine currently contains two Durex Extra Sensitive Ribbed condoms (about 2.25” squares, typical sizes for condom wrappers), plus ten sample-sized packets of Durex Play lube. The lube packets are roughly the same thickness as a condom packet, but longer and narrower (about 3” long by 2” wide). The case closes easily, but I did have to tuck in the ends of the lube packets so they wouldn’t get caught when I zipped the case. Depending on the dimensions of the condoms that you use, you could probably fit Magnums or other XL condoms in here. The case seems sturdy and flexible, but it does not have much “stretch”, so you can’t really force it to accommodate an object longer or wider than it is.

Overall, this case is very discreet. Even if you buy it in a color that is liable to stand out, nothing about its appearance hints at its true purpose. The only insignia are two purple FYN logos on the zipper pulls, which include a set of two keys and a small luggage-style lock. The brand name does not appear anywhere aside from on the hang tag (that you’re supposed to remove anyway) and on a white, sewn-in tag that is on the inside of the case. Based on this, a would-be snoop would not know what is inside the case unless he/she was familiar with the FYN logo, but in that case you might not have to hide the case from that person – and who knows, it might even be fun to share in your experiences!
Experience
I currently do not have a partner, so I can't speak for how easy this case is to open in the event that you do need to quickly grab a condom for easy access in the heat of the moment. However, this could easily be left out on your nightstand or a dresser without looking suspicious. At the same time, a bold print such as the leopard print is likely to stand out in your purse or bag enough to make it easy to find (mine definitely would). The zipper pulls are large and easy to grab, and I don’t really find the zipper getting stuck or becoming annoying.

My only problem is with FYN's locks: I have both this and the Adult Toybox, and the standard FYN locks are small and the mechanisms do not look particularly secure. I’ve never been in a position where I’ve really had to worry about how secure my locks are, but my guess is that they’d be good for keeping out an average houseguest or a young child who might give this case a quick look, or play with it, and toss it aside. However, it probably wouldn’t take much more than a bobby pin for someone to pick this lock and access the contents. For the hell of it, I poked at the lock with a bobby pin for a second or two, but did not manage to do much more than bend the bobby pin. However, I’m no expert at lock picking and someone who is moderately experienced at doing so would likely be more successful than I was at my half-hearted attempt.

Since I was fairly impressed by how many condoms (and lube packets) this case held, I decided to go through my apartment and medicine cabinet and see what other kinds of non sex-related things this case was able to accommodate. Each bullet below designates a combination of one, two, or three objects that I put inside of the Size Does Matter at once that filled the case to its relative maximum capacity:

* A 24-count bottle of generic naproxen sodium, 38.3 yd floss, nail clippers
* An unseparated blister pack containing twelve capsules of cold medicine, nail clippers
* About four “fun sized” chocolate candy bars
* A small stack of ticket stubs and old receipts
* A travel-sized antiperspirant (kind of a short, stubby one; I tried taller ones and they wouldn’t fit).
* Two tubes of lipstick, two 3” by 0.5” tubes of liquid eye shadow, three lubes of Chapstick
* Three pairs of contact lenses (in their original blister packaging)

I’m probably stating the obvious, but if an object is smaller than the dimensions of this case, it should fit in here. If you plan on using this for anything other than storing condoms, there are countless other things I didn’t try that could fit into the Size Does Matter as well. The only real limits are how creative you can get and how much you have lying around in your living space!
Follow-up commentary
I still use this to store my condoms, to the extent that I don't plan on using the condoms inside of it for fear that they're no longer good due to heat and humidity in my apartment. Nevertheless, this is due to no fault of the case, and it's a great little accessory.

    After seeing all the things you managed to fit in here that weren't condom related, I might just have to get myself one too!

    Thanks for the feedback, all!

    Now, if only ALL of the things that I had listed above could fit into this case instead of just a couple of them at a time...eh, FYN makes bigger cases for that.
