Skyn Isn't the Best Name...

I will be looking for a thinner condom, and I feel these should have a different name since they do NOT feel like skin or feel like "nothing". You can definitely feel these and they are regular thickness.
No taste, No smell, Latex-free, Good for sensitive skin or genitals
Felt slightly uncomfortable, Too thick

useful review
I am on the prowl searching for new condoms. Hadn't used them in a while, and Trojan has just been far too thick. Surprisingly, my wife has been the one to notice it first! While browsing at the corner store, my wife came across these and said "Why not? Let's try 'em!!!"

After using these I noticed they weren't latex. Not sure why I didn't see that right away by looking at the box. Anyhow, they don't feel as stretchy to me and honestly feel a bit uncomfortable. Friends of mine don't experience this with this material, so it may just be me. Who knows. We even contemplated if our condoms were expired, but the box said otherwise. Brand new and fresh.

However, wifey and I worked past the slight discomfort and worry about they less-stretchy feeling and didn't have many problems. We don't really mind them and if we were in a hurry we might just grab these again... But that's only if there is no thinner condom available. These were just as thick as any other condom we have used and most certainly felt like I was wearing something. Like a thick Saran Wrap. Therefore, don't buy these expecting the feeling of "nothing".

One of the up-sides is that these do not have that strong latex smell. They really only smell like lubricant. So that's awesome. They also have practically no taste according to my picky wife who has to have condoms with little to no taste. If you have issues with either of these things, these condoms may just be for you.

I understand that since these are latex-free, these condoms are wonderful for folks out there who have sensitive skin or genitals. My best friend from high school uses these regularly as he is allergic to most condoms and he originally told my wife and I about them. I had a rash a few times after using condoms again for the first time in a year and a half. These condoms caused no rash, which is awesome. However, I am searching for anything thinner and I won't use these again unless I absolutely have to.
Overall, I truly enjoyed the lack of scent, taste, and allergy. But... I need something thinner and something that feels more comfortable by means of being stretchy. These condoms did not break and fit on my member quite well. No penis suffocation or anything of the sort.
Follow-up commentary
I still like these condoms, but obviously not their thickness. I enjoy the lack of taste and smell and that will always be a preference of both mine and my wife. But, three stars remains due to how thick these are. Tried them two weeks ago and again this week and preference hasn't changed.

    Thanks for the review. I like that you compare them to other condoms to give us an idea of the thickness.
