Great Run of the Mill Condom

If you're a few dollars short of free shipping or need some standard condoms for your nightstand, these are a decent buy. If you're like me and throw condoms in your purse for a week or two, these might make you uneasy. Overall, a decent product for a decent price.
Cheap price, quality brand, get what you're expecting

There is nothing wrong with these condoms, but there isn't anything special about them either.

I bought a 3 pack and they came in a standard cardboard box. When I opened the box, I was really disapointed to find the condoms were wrapped in plastic instead of foil. Now, I'm not a condom expert. I don't know what the advantages of plastic vs. foil is when it comes to condoms. Personally, I prefer foil. I know that condoms can get worn down and become ineffective, and I know it's bad to store them improperly. So I'm a bit paranoid about the fact that I have a condom thrown into my purse. For whatever reason, foil seems more durable and able to take a punching in my purse more than plastic. And this isn't even the thick, hard plastic type that your standard Trojans come in (think the blue and white), this is a really thin plastic. You could see not only the outline of the condom but also the yellow color and even some of the lube that had stuck to the wrapper through the package.

Because of my paranoia about condoms breaking, I didn't trust these in my purse and ended up buying a condom carrying case for them.

These aren't a special shape. They don't have any more or less of a taste than any other condom. They smell kind of bad and taste awful just like most lubricated condoms. I found that the lubrication was pretty standard. Honestly, there's not a whole lot to say about these. Think of a normal condom. That is what these are.

The only distinct thing I found about the condoms were the plastic packaging.

These are your run of the mill condoms. The only notable thing about them is that they aren't wrapped in foil or hard plastic but a very thin and somewhat transparent plastic (this made me paranoid about them being more vulnerable to wearing down in pockets/wallets/purses).
Follow-up commentary
These are still just your standard, run-of-the-mill condoms. However, I have noticed that in "larger" males, unrolling the condom can be a bit more difficult. It took quite a bit longer and more force to get these unrolled than another brand I use. Of course, once on, it's perfectly fine. However, it was annoying to have to spend 3 minutes forcing it down.

    Thanks for sharing. I wouldn't get too hung up on the plastic vs. foil thing. Plastic snaps back to its shape, where as foil can change shape.
