Personally, I'm still trying to find my favorite brand, but I like Durex -- easy to find, pretty cheap, and had good luck with them so far.

We've had a couple of threads on this in the past; check them out to see what other people think!

Durex Ultimate Feeling: thin and ribbed. my boyfriend likes the rubber in durex condoms, he says it feels "different." and i prefer textured condoms. the ring is wider than many brands, which makes my boy happy.

Kimono Microthin: ultra thin, yet super strong. no texture, but still quite good. he loves this brand.

and always use lubricant with your condoms, even if they are already lubricated. this will minimize your chances of condom breakage. my favorite lube is Astroglide. it doesn't dry out as fast as other brands i've tried, and moreover, i'm not allergic to it.

I guess I'm just like ErinK. I haven't yet found my favorite, but I guess I'll have to say Durex too. They're easy to find, not bad and come in various styles

But I have to say that I also like LifeStyles. I guess I just like them, but I don't really know why.

Before I start, I'll clarify that I'm not using these to prevent pregnancy. That's not my concern, as I'm involved with another woman. I'm using 'em to keep the toys easy to clean.

Unflavored-Durex. They've never broken once, and for some reason, they really hang on to lube.

Flavored-Trustex. They make excellent dental dams, and my girlfriend and I had a brief spat over who got to try the grape one. We like vanilla, chocolate, grape and strawberry.

I'm gonna have to say thus far we've been thrilled with the Kimono Microthins and with the flavored Trustex. Both seem to be good quality and well made. And neither seem to have that latexy taste.
