Thinnest condoms


Common complaint about condoms is that they decrease the sensation and that the process of putting a condom on somehow kills the excitement. Well, if your willy goes down while you’re putting a condom, I’m sorry but it’s more likely that you’re too nervous or inexperienced so don’t blame it on the condom right away.
But if your problem is the lack of sensation, there is a solution -try the thinnest condoms before you give up on condoms or bash them.
Maybe you’ve even tried some ultra thin latex condoms, but new generation of condoms with new materials, pushes the boundaries of thickness and provides even better feeling. In this post I’ll introduce you with the thinnest condoms currently available on the market.

Thinnest condoms in the world

Without much delay and introduction, let me introduce you with the thinnest condoms (based on my thorough research):

pasante uniqueThe thinnest condom in the world at this moment is Pasante Unique, measuring just 0.015 mm thickness. But before you rush out to get it, just a friendly warning – this condom is actually more similar to a cling film than a standard condom. Secondly, this condom is not available in the US (update: it’s now available at Check a video review here if you want to learn more, and below are the other thinnest condom candidates.

UPDATE no. 2:
Sagami has introduced a new contender in the thinnest condoms arena – Sagami 0.01 which is just 0.018 mm thick. Here’s the complete review if you want to learn more.

1. Sagami Original 0.02

sagami original
Sagami Rubber Industries was the first manufacturer that produced a condomwith the thickness of just 0.02 mm. To give you a better impression how thin this really is, I’ll compare it to the avarage thickness of a human hair which is 0.06mm. So 0.02 mm is a third of the thickness of a human hair.
It is also more than twice as thin as the standard latex ultra-thin condom (eg. Durex Sensi-Thin, which is 0.048 mm).
As you may presume Sagami Rubber is a Japanese manufacturer with long history – the company was established in 1934.
This extremely thin condom is made of polyurethane – type of plastic, introduced in the market in the 1990s. Besides being thinner, condoms made of polyurethane have some other benefits as well:

  • polyurethane is hypoallergenic material, meaning people suffering from latex allergies can safely use these condoms
  • polyurethane condoms are both effective in preventing pregnancy and preventing many STDs
  • they transmit heat better
  • they are strong as latex, if not even stronger
  • Sagami Original is odorless
  • polyurethane is oil resistant, so you can use oil lubricants with Sagami Original and other polyurethane condoms

Note: Keep on mind that polyurethane is less stretchable than latex! If you pick the wrong size the constriction feeling might ruin the moment. Secondly, Sagami condoms imported from Japan might be a bit too small for the US market. That’s why, unless you usually use small condoms, I would recommend that you order the Sagami 0.02 larger version.

2. Sagami Original 0.02 Premium

sagami premiumFor the 10th anniversary of Sagami Original they introduced even thinner and stronger Sagami Original 0.02 Premium condom with the thickness of outstanding ~0.022mm (the regular Sagami Original condom is around 0.024mm, as we’ve been told by the distributor).

However, there are a few other Japanese manufacturers which, shortly after Sagami, produced their own 0.02 mm thick condoms. And, as it seems, it is only a matter of time when manufacturers will brake this record and produce even thinner condom.

Here are other 0.02 mm thick condoms:

3. Okamoto 0.02EX Condom

4. JEX 0.02 Condom

Another Japanese manufacturer produced a urethane condom.

You may have noticed that above mentioned condoms are produced from polyurethane.
The main disadvantage of these new materials is the price, which is still significantly higher than the price of latex condoms.
There are however just slightly thicker latex condoms, with the thickness of 0.03 mm and with the smaller price.

Few other thin condoms with the thickness of 0.03 mm

These condoms are made from latex, but with the use of the highest manufacturing technology. If you don’t mind the latex and don’t want to pay the high price for polyurethane, try these condoms:

Other thinnest latex condoms

Here are few other thin latex condoms, which have been available on the market for some time. There are thicker than all the above mentioned, but they have the most affordable prices:

The okamoto skinless 3000 is rated at .015mm. This may be the thinnest in the world. Check it out and give your opinion please!!

Pete December 26, 2012 at 5:40 pm

Hey O’Neal, thanks for the comment! I just googled it and it seems to me that you’re right! Good find! I’ll have to update this post :)
btw, have you tried it already?

Pete March 31, 2013 at 9:16 pm

Well, I’ll have to correct myself…it seems that the information about the thickness of Okamoto 3000 available on is incorrect.
Condom distributor from Hong Kong (Sampsonstore) informed me that Okamoto Skinless 3000 has been in the market for more than 20 years and its tickness is actually 0.04-0.05mm, and not 0.015 mm. The reason why this condom is a bit more expansive is the special shape, as they say.

Kiril July 4, 2013 at 5:16 am

Maybe Okamoto changed the spec’s? Also the brand “Skinless” has been around for over 20 years, but the 3000 hasn’t been here very long. But I cannot find where Okamoto officially states that it’s 0.015 mm.

Pete July 6, 2013 at 10:44 am

yeah, neither can I, so I’ll trust the distributor on this one…unless I find some other facts…

condomman August 17, 2013 at 12:04 am

I found those Okamoto Skinless 3000 on eBay and they said its 0.015 mm thickness. I brought some and tried and I do not feel its 0.04 or 0.05, more like a 0.03 to 0.02 .
like you guys said there is NO official thickness stated ANYWHERE.
But they are too small so my fav now is sagami 0.02 Large.
never tried sagami 0.02 preimum somebody please put some review

condomman August 17, 2013 at 12:06 am

I just wish there are 0.01 mm coming soon
anyone has heard anything about 0.01 coming ?

Pete August 26, 2013 at 7:22 pm

there’s not a 0.01 mm condom as far as I know, but there’s a 0.015 mm condom – it’s called Pasante Unique.
However, there’s a catch, it doesn’t really look like a regular latex condom. check out this video review below, I think your enthusiasm will fade away:

Miguel December 6, 2013 at 9:33 am

i just looked at the pasante condom, the condom is poorly designed and is just sad, i mean come on, i’m sure sagami had more cunstomers than that hoax of a condom. but in all, pasante needs to man up and NOT use the little sanwich bag as a condom

Pete December 7, 2013 at 7:42 pm

“sandwich bag” is the best comparison I’ve heard so far :)
btw, have you checked the new thin condom from Sagami – Sagami 0.01?
(I obviously have to update this post!)

Jaramide January 15, 2014 at 11:48 pm

As someone who has actually used the pasante unique I have to say that that review is complete bollox. The condom needs the body heat to function. It molds itself to you and works pretty damn well. Definitely transfers a lot of heat. My only problem with it is that the big rim or flare at the bottom is kind of offputting and could have been made a lot smaller. Still if you are interested in a thin condom you should give it a try.

Neal April 3, 2014 at 3:05 am

The 004 condom by Okamoto (makers of Crown) is the thinnest LATEX condom in the world. It has been available in Japan for some years but has been resized for the U.S market, which is now made in the U.S

.004cm (.04mm) thin!

Milo August 13, 2014 at 1:49 am

You should check this out, dunno if it is legit,

Okamoto 0.01

Pete August 18, 2014 at 11:32 am
