A Non-Latex Option We Actually Liked

My fiance and I find these to be the most comfortable non-latex and non-lambskin condoms on the market. Obviously everyone has different preferences when it comes to condoms. But we like that they are thin, flexible, non-odorous, and non-constricting. We stick with these all the time.
Fairly thin, no weird odor, well lubricated, comfortable for average male, non-latex
Nothing, from our standpoint these are our go-to condom
Rating by reviewer:
useful review
Let me start out by saying I am no fan of condoms. My fiance and I are in a committed, monogamous relationship and if it could be so, we would not be using condoms at all. That said, we are not ready for babies yet and I literally can't take oral contraceptives. The hormone fluctuations just kill my libido, my mood, and my face with acne.

So in order to prevent any non-welcome humans from appearing in my uterus we had to find a condom that would work for both of us. He is pretty flexible when it comes to brands but I have a latex sensitivity. Hence, my fiance and I have tried pretty much every non-latex condom on the (drug-store) market. While my personal favorite in terms of sensation was a lambskin condom; the gross-out squishy factor, cold slimy texture, and funky odor was a huge turn off to my fiance.

We were able to compromise on these. Lifestyles Skyn condoms are the only non-latex condoms he's found both comfortable (non-constricting band) and thin enough that he can still enjoy sensation. He claims most non-latex condoms don't allow for a lot of heat transfer, but that he can still feel changes in temperature in this condom. I personally enjoy it because the non-latex material and gentle lubricant don't cause any issues in my nether regions and it feels thin enough that I can still feel my partner as well.

The closest comparison we could find to these would be the Durex Avanti Bare which are also okay. However, I feel they're a bit thicker and less flexible than the Lifestyles Skyn and my fiance says he feels more "numbed out" in the Avantis than these. This is our always go-to, we don't bother trying anything else anymore (unless these are sold out, and that rarely happens). They are reasonably priced and readily available on this website and in most major stores. We give these an A+ as far as condoms go.
Follow-up commentary
They're still not bad, although occasionally my fiance feels they squeeze him a bit. For what it's worth and in comparison to other non-latex options, they're just fine.
