I don't think there's any one brand of condom which would universally be rated as "the best" - different people have different preferences. But the Safer Sex & Birth Control FAQ has links to lots of threads on recommendations, safety ratings and opinions on different brands and types of condoms.

Just to let you know, from experience, trojans break very easily.

I think the "best" condom is the one that you and your partner(s) agree fits them well, feels comfortable during sexual activity, doesn't break easily, goes well with a nice water or silicon based lube, and is easy to get and put on.

And that might be different from person to person -- one of my partners really loves Kimono Microthins, while another one likes Durex ones, and still another one likes Inspirals because they have a slightly bigger ring size that he finds more comfortable.

So some experimentation may be in order.
