New Sagami Original 0.01 Thinner Than Ever Before

Sagami Original 0.01

President of Sagami Rubber Industries Ltd, world known Japanese condom manufacturer, recently announced that they’ve developed and put in manufacturing “Sagami Original 0.01”!

Sagami Original rose to fame for its high levels of success and decreasing thickness. The range has been constantly updated to meet the new benchmarks set by the industry, and to also beat the same. As a celebration of its 10th anniversary, Sagami Original 0.01 is launched with a decreased thickness of 18 microns, ensuring maximal eroticism and related sensation with minimal discomfort. The model boasts of being up to 25% thinner than the previous model and is being marketed as the thinnest in the past of Sagami Original!

The product immediately grabbed our attention for its specifications. It is certainly a must try for all those who are on the hunt for some of the thinnest condoms in the world.

Sales are starting on 18th of November 2013, but only in Tokyo, while the rest of the world will have to wait till they expand their production capacity.

UPDATE – Sagami 0.01 is now available on team was lucky enough to receive a few exclusive samples of these new unbelievably thin condoms. We took some photos and one of our readers/supporters got two testing samples. Below we’ll write a bit more about our impressions of Sagami Original 0.01.
First, lets take a look at the specifications.

Length: 170±10mm

sagami original dimensions

As you can judge by its dimensions this condom would best suit those who usually use a regular or a smaller sized condom. The nominal width is actually a bit wider than a regular latex condom width, but keep in mind that polyurethane (which this condom is made of) is less strechable than latex. So the tightness and constricting feeling might be even more evident in the case of a misfit size.
Although its less strechable that doesn’t mean it’s less reliable. The Sagami safety standards are ensuring the reliability and security of each polyurethane condom they produce. Intrigued by its thickness I used some force to strech it as far as it goes but it stayed in one piece.

Each sample condom came in a neat little paper box, and you can see below how it looks after opening it:

Here’s how it looks upclose after unwraping the foil on the top (right side, of course). I placed the Okamoto Skinless Skin condom on the left, which has a thickness of 0.047mm, for comparisson. You obviously don’t need a microscope to see the difference – Sagami is so much thinner!

Sagami Original001 unwrapped

On the first look this condom is so thin and fragile that some might be a bit sceptical in its durability. It proved it self in practical use however, as our reader confirmed.

You know that usual smell of a latex condom? Well this condom has no smell at all and I think you’ll agree that’s a neat feature of a polyurethane condom. On the other hand the extreme thinness and the fact it’s less strechable makes it a bit harder to unroll.

What you’re probably want to find out is ‘can you really feel the difference?’. Well, two samples by one guy is far from a study enviroment. But yes, our reader who tried it likes it and says he can really feel a difference. He asked us for more of these. Well, sorry buddy, you’ll have to head out all the way to Tokyo Amazon for more.
Or be patient until they release the sales worldwide. Suggested retail price for 5-pieces pack is 1,200 Japanese yen, which is around 12 bucks.

UPDATE – Sagami Original 0.01 is now available on

Scooter December 8, 2014 at 11:32 am

I’m confused by the dimensions. It says the diameter (D) is 55mm+/-2mm and the circumference is 110mm. From geometry (and my favorite, calculus if we take the derivative of the area with respect to radius) we know that the circumference = 2πR = πD = 3.14 * 55mm +/-2mm = 166.5mm – 179.1mm. The difference of 166.5-110 = 56.5mm! One of these numbers is wrong. If you say it’s the stretched diameter then I say technical specifications must be consistent. I’m sure it’s tough to recruit the top-rated engineers into cutting edge (so tempted to change those t’s to ;-)) condom design. I hope they are better at thickness! (just had a flashback of at 0:25s “Condamns”)


Pete December 8, 2014 at 11:57 am

hey Scooter. no, it’s not diameter that’s 55mm but flat width. that’s how they measure condoms. I wrote about that in few other posts and comments (eg. here).
ps. LOL for that LKM sketch, now I can’t stop watching his other videos :)


Hans December 19, 2014 at 9:05 am

At Amazon, the nominal width is noted as ’36±2mm (110mm circumference)’. what measurement are they using :-)
