It's Almost Like Nothing At All

Some condoms claim to feel like nothing at all, a lot fail. This one comes pretty darn close however. Not exactly like nothing at all, but close enough to increase sensations for both people involved.
Able to feel more of each other, No real latex smell,
Smaller size means bigger guys should avoid this one

extremely useful review
If you want to be able to feel more of your partner, but at the same time wanting to prevent pregnancy or a possible STD, or even just to keep cleanup nice and neat, checking out ultra thin condoms is the way to go. This one won't disappoint.

The average condom is 7.5" long, 2.04" wide at the base, and .002" thick. Vivid Extra Thin is shorter at 7" long and narrower at 2" wide at the base and along the shaft. The key to this condom is its thickness, coming in at .00027" thick. This lets both participants feel more of each other.

Really long or thick guys should probably look for a different condom however, but use your best judgment. If it feels tight or starts to leave a mark, take it off immediately and switch to something bigger.

If you stick your nose right to this condom, you can smell the latex; but, other than that, there's pretty much no scent whatsoever.

These condoms come lubricated with water-based lube. I found the provided lubrication to be adequate, but if you start to run low on natural lubrication, make sure to add some more. You can use your favorite body safe water based or silicone based lube. Avoid oil based lubes and stay away from body lotions, Vaseline, and the like. The oil base can degrade the latex and cause breakage, which would be bad m'kay?

These, like all other condoms, should be stored 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, brittle, or looks damaged, don't use it. You should always use a new condom each time you engage in a new sex act, never reuse. You would use these the same way you use any other condom with a reservoir tip, pinch the tip to remove all the air, and then roll down the shaft.

The inside of the box does contain instructions for use, but if you're still unsure how to put a condom on correctly, more detailed written instructions can be found here, or Planned Parenthood offers a video that you can watch.

I've never had a Vivid condom break on me, ever. So you should feel confident in these too as long as you're lubricated enough.
He says: These condoms were awesome. I could feel a lot more of my lady than with regular condoms. Yes, I could feel the latex on this condom a little bit, but not enough to be distracting at all.

She says: I love being able to feel him and not the condom. With these, I didn't feel any latex moving, couldn't hear anything, it was almost like he was wearing nothing at all. The only difference is that with the condom on he felt smoother, as his skin is more textured than the condom.

I do recommend these to anybody looking for a really thin, reliable condom.
Follow-up commentary
We don't always grab these first, but they are still a favorite. I've noticed some of them smell a bit more like latex than others, but it's never been anything that has made us decide we'd rather use another condom, as it doesn't seem to scent either of us. I still recommend these to anybody interested in trying them out.
