I'm trying to research it and half of the articles say that the skyn condom material is as stronger- some say stronger- than latex and the other half say they are actually more likely to break. I'm very allergic to latex and skyn condoms are the only ones that fit my partner without being too tight or loose since they don't seem to have as much "give" as latex. Are they as strong as latex?

The effectiveness data at this point that I stay abreast of is usually the same for latex and non-latex condoms, and the non-latex condoms made now -- which have changed a lot over the last 20 years -- are way different than non-latex of yore, which didn't used to be as well-made.
