Condom Review: Kimono MicroThin Large

The Kimono MicroThin Large pushes the envelope of thinness and sensitivity, ensuring that Japanese companies like Kimono rarely disappoint.


Kimono has done it again, except this time, they’re keeping the dudes who are a little bigger downstairs in mind.

The Kimono Microthin Large Condoms are made from natural rubber latex, and combine sheer thinness with reliable durability. Like I’ve mentioned many times before, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice safety for added pleasure, and Kimono definitely doesn’t force you to make that sacrifice. The state of the art technology held strong during a very prolonged sex session of over an hour, so, durability is definitely the Kimono MicroThin Large Condom’s strong point. Not to mention, the thinness of the condom made it feel like he wasn’t even wearing one.

Though, I will suggest that you may want to add a few drops of a water or silicone-based lubricant to the inside of the condom, because my partner did complain of some dryness and friction about halfway through. In our case, we learned the hard way and had to put on a new condom, but to avoid this, a few drops of lube should do the trick. On my end, surprisingly, I didn’t experience any dryness, although adding lubrication to the outside of the condom can’t hurt either.

Now on to size…The Kimono MicroThin Large Condoms are 7.5” long and a little over 1.87” wide, which is actually way smaller than than your standard condom. It’s the same exact size as the Kimono MicroThin UltraLube condoms, and shorter and the same width as regular Kimono MicroThins. Nice logic, Kimono!

Final Verdict:

Kimono MicroThin Large condoms were comfortable and didn’t dry out for me, felt barely-there and also didn’t leave that strange latex odor on me or my partner.

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

What Condom Depot Customers Are Saying:

“As a woman I have to say these are my favorite condoms but I equally like the Bravo wicked thins. I have tried them all I now buy Kimono in regular and large and the Bravos in both sizes! I hate the lubes that trojan uses these don’t bother me at all and I will ummm go down after one comes off I won’t with other brands. No funky smell or taste left behind!! Also every guy I have ever used one with asks me about them and then starts buying these! BY far the closest feeling to bareback and I have NEVER had one break. I would recommend these to everyone I know and I do!!! Try them you will love them!” Jeni – California

“This is an excellent product. After using such brands as Twisted Pleasure, Trojan Ecstasy, and Lifestyles. We can both attest to the superiority and comfort of this condom.” John & Sallie – Dallas, TX
