Condom Review: Condom Depot Non-Latex Condom Sampler

If you think you may be allergic to latex or have a sensitivity to it, and you’re not sure what to purchase, the Condom Depot Non-Latex Condom Sampler has covered.

CondomDepot-Review-HI-condom-depot-non-latex-samplerCondom Depot Non Latex Sampler is a 10 pack assortment of five different condoms. It includes two of each of the following; Trojan NaturaLamb, Trojan Bareskin Non-Latex Supra, Lifestyles SKYN, Lifestyles SKYN Large, and the FC2 Female Condom.

All five of these condoms are outstanding non-latex condom alternatives but all of them have different features and types of materials to be aware of for your protection. Let’s take a look at them to give you the rundown on each one, so you know what to expect when you buy the Condom Depot Non Latex Sampler.

Trojan NaturaLamb

First off and most importantly, please be advised Trojan NaturaLamb only protects against unintended pregnancy, and does not protect against HIV or transmission of other STDs.   I would advise only using this condom if you are in a monogamous, committed relationship, solely looking for pregnancy protection.

Also I would suggest that both partners share their STD status, along with the STD risk factors of using lambskin (or any condom) prior to use, even if  they’ve recently tested clean and are in a committed relationship.  As you hopefully already know, if you test negative for HIV and other STDs, it does not guarantee that you are virus free, as many diseases do not show up in tests right away.

If there is absolutely no concern for both partners contracting a STD and are strictly looking for protection against pregnancy, the Trojan NaturaLamb is the non-latex condom for you.

Trojan NaturaLamb’s natural lambskin membrane material is a little thicker than latex but provides a more natural feeling (hence the name), as if you are not wearing a condom at all.

Another key design element is its KLING-TITE® drawstring at the base of the condom.  This is used to provide extra protection from unplanned pregnancy by aiding in preventing condom slippage.  Both my partner and I found this to be one of our favorite non-latex condoms and didn’t really notice the lambskin being much thicker than latex.  Its water-based lubricant seemed to last the whole time we used it, which was a perk.

Alternatively, if you are looking for non-latex condoms to protect you from everything (STDs and pregnancy), the other four options in the sampler are regarded as some of the best for your all-around protection, when used correctly.

Trojan BareSkin Non-Latex Supra

Dubbed as “America’s Thinnest Non-Latex Condom” Trojan BareSkin Non Latex Supra (formally known as Trojan Supra) condoms are made out of a non-porous soft plastic material, polyurethane, and offers the same barely-there feeling as its latex counterpart, Trojan BareSkin.

Its material conducts heat, which I found to simulate the feeling of going bareback, which was very enjoyable for both my partner and I.  It is highly effective in preventing STDs and pregnancy, but please be advised that using it for anything other than vaginal intercourse can increase the chances of possible damage to the condom.  Also in all caps on the box, the manufacturer advises against using any additional personal lubricants as they may damage the condom.

LifeStyles SKYN & SKYN Large

LifeStyles has produced two more non-latex alternatives for you to try, LifeStyles SKYN & SKYN Large.  SKYN Large is slightly wider than SKYN and almost equal in length.  Both are made from polyisoprene (a synthetic form of latex), mimic a natural feeling, and are clinically proven to enhance sensation.  Its material is thinner than latex but a little thicker than the polyurethane found in the Trojan Bareskin Non-Latex Supra.  I found that they are just as comfortable as the latter brand mentioned and both my partner and I did not notice much of a difference between the thickness of polyisoprene (LifeStyles) and polyurethane (Trojan) included in this sampler.

FC2 Female Condom

Lastly, the FC2 Female Condom made of seamless nitrate polymer, offers just as much STD and pregnancy protection as the traditional male condom when used correctly, and provides an added bonus.  Its inner and outer ring are known to provide extra stimulation for both partners, which is a major plus.  My partner and I both felt the added sensation of both rings.

Also given the slack that stays on the outside of the vagina, the female condom offers an extra layer of defense against STDs and unplanned pregnancy.   It may seem a little tricky or cumbersome to use at first, so make sure you watch Condom Depot’s Guide to Using the FC2 and read the instructions a couple of times to get familiar with this fantastic condom before using it for the first time.

Please be aware not all condoms are created equal, but they all serve to protect you in some way, shape or form against unplanned pregnancy and STDs.  As explained earlier lambskin condoms do not protect against HIV and other STDs.  Always read the packaging and instructions thoroughly before using any condom and discuss with your partner any potential risk factors.  Also, check the expiration date, know your condom size, and store them appropriately so they do not lose any of their effective properties.
