Ultra-Thin Condoms

Last Updated:
October 18, 2023

What makes a condom an ultra thin condom? We talked a lot about width and length in our Snug-Fit and Large-Fit condom guides, so now it’s time to tackle thickness. Condom thickness is the measurement of the barrier material itself. Because most of us aren’t used to microns, we’ll use millimeters to compare which condoms are really the thinnest. We want you to know exactly how much material like latex or polyurethane is separating you and your partners. 

Ultra-Thin Condom Sizes

Condoms are typically “standard condom size” if they are about 53mm wide and 7” long. Since this guide is going to look at thickness of material, all of the condoms listed are what would be called – average size – for regular condoms. We weren’t able to include any large-fit condoms on this list because large fit sized condoms are often also thicker in material. If you’re wondering which of our Large-Fit Buying Guide condoms won for thinnest, it was the PS Extra Large Odorless Vegan Exceptionally Thin Condoms. Feel free to check those out too. 

“UltraThin” condoms vs “standard” thickness

When it comes to thickness there isn’t really a – standard condom thickness – in the same way that there is an – average condom size – and this is because each manufacturer like – Trojan, Durex, LifeStyles, SKYN, PS Condoms, or ONE Condoms, etc – all make barriers in a bunch of different materials and each material will have its own thickness. 

Many brands offer an Ultra-thin, or HyperThin option which maybe a tiny bit thinner than their primary offerings, but really thickness is just going to vary. This is why we wanted to compare “how thin are the thinnest condoms”? We hope that our list gives you a few ideas for ones that you might want to try.

Ranked in order of thinnest to thickest, these are our top picks for ultra-thin barriers.

What ultra thin condom is right for you?

Topping our list for being one of the thinnest available is the WINK Closer .04mm Thin Lubricated Latex Condoms which has a minimal thickness of only 0.04mm. A lot of people ask “Do ultra thin condoms break easier?” and fortunately the answer is NO. 

Ultra-thin condoms are no more likely to break when used correctly. Many things can cause a condom to break including material degradation, improper fit, or even improper application, but no, just being thinner does not increase the chances of breakage. 

Vegan UltraThin Condoms

Many latex condoms contain casein (a dairy by-product) that makes them not vegan. The next thinnest barrier on our list is the PS Odorless Vegan Exceptionally Thin Condoms which in addition to being exceptionally thin are also vegan and odorless. If you’re not a fan of the way condoms usually smell these would be a great option for you as being 100% vegan is what makes it so that they don’t have the typical condom smell. 

When it comes to the extra-thin condom options, there are more materials to choose from than just latex, and our next thinnest option is also coincidentally a vegan choice too. The ONE Condoms Flex Graphene & Latex Ultra-Thin Vegan Condoms offer some of the latest technology in condom materials. They also offer the wearer a little more room, measuring  at a generous 54mm wide and 7.5” long are just a little bit above average-size. 

Non-Latex Ultra-Thins

Do you need a latex-free condom, but still want an ultra-thin material? If so we have to recommend the SKYN Elite Ultra-Thin Non-Latex Lubricated Condoms. With a width of 53mm wide and length of 7” long, you can’t get more – average condom size– than that. 

As a bonus they are also available in an extra-lubricated ultra-thin option that comes in the same standard size, and same minimal thickness of only 0.045mm, but with an extra slippery 40% more silicone lubricant. If that sounds like fun you can pick up a box of the SKYN Elite Extra Lube Ultra-Thin Non-Latex Condoms today!
