Condom Review: Durex Avanti Bare Condom

Durex has exceeded expectations by supplying quality condoms for our past condom reviews. So how does the Durex Avanti Bare condom stack up?


I had recently reviewed the Durex Extra Sensitive condoms and came away pretty happy with what they added to my personal safe sex practices. So my expectations were high when it came to reviewing the premium Durex Avanti Bare condoms.

DUREX-AVANTI-FBDurex advertises a next to nothing feel with a condom that’s 20% thinner than standard Durex condoms, and they hit the mark on both claims.  The latex material is soft and conforms well to the penis creating a comfortable yet snug fit. The 20% thinner condom virtually disappears when you put it on. If it wasn’t for the patented reservoir tip at the end of the condom, you would have to do a double take to notice I was wearing it.

One thing to note.  While the Durex Avanti Bare condom doesn’t have a “latex smell,” it does have a special scent designed to be more pleasant.  It’s a tangy odor, and one that’s hardly noticed unless you are purposefully smelling the condom for the sake of a review. That being said, the “more pleasant” scent is something I could have done without.

Final Verdict:

The Durex Avanti Bare condom is another in a strong line of Durex brand condoms. I would even recommend it over the Durex Extra Sensitive condom in my personal opinion. With thinner and softer material the Durex Avanti Bare will give you a premium safe sex experience similar to Crown Skinless Skin condoms.

Overall Rating: 4 Stars

What Condom Depot Customers Are Saying:

“These should be the new standard in condoms. They took the greatest features from every condom, and put it all into one. Everyone can use them including people with latex allergies. They definitely don’t feel like they will ever break. Hands down the best condom.” Bob – Madison, WI

“These are my new condom of choice. My boyfriend and I had been reasonably satisfied with Durex Extra Sensitive before, but we recently picked up a pack of these on a whim. I think they feel more natural and less rubbery/plasticky. He doesn’t notice a difference in sensation one way or the other, but he does like increasing my pleasure so we’ll stick with these in the future.” E.C. – A Small Town, Arkansas
