Our staff of Safer Sexologists put the Kimono Maxx Condom to the test! Here is where the Kimono Maxx Condom ranks!
Kimono MAXX Condoms are great large sized condoms, especially if you are looking for extra headroom and length, without compromising on thinness and durability.
After taking this Japanese condom for a test drive, my partner noticed they were slightly longer than their condom cousin, Kimono MicroThin and found that he had extra room for his foreskin to move freely.
If your partner finds the MicroThin to be a tad short but the width is perfect and he is uncut, I would definitely recommend trying the Kimono MAXX. Kimono MAXX measure 7.68 inches in length (roughly .2 inches longer than the MicroThin) and 2.05 inches in width (same as the MicroThin), to provide just enough extra length for ultimate comfort.
The Kimono MAXX was just lubricated enough to last the duration of our love-making session. Had we gone any longer than 20 minutes, we may have needed some more lubricant.
I highly suggest having one on hand (in close reach), as to not put a damper on your sexy time if you need a little extra lubrication in the heat of the moment. Pjur has an excellent line of lubes that come in many different formulas and sizes to fit you and your partner’s needs.
The overall feeling of Kimono MAXX was just as outstanding as the MicroThin for me. Since it's a large condom, it allowed my partner to feel less constricted especially with the extra length and added headroom. For me it felt similar to another Japanese-made condom, the Okamoto 004 that we tried recently but not nearly as thin or quite as long, noted by my boyfriend.
Kimono condoms offer a way less expensive alternative if you are on a tight budget looking for a thin and reliable condom to mimic a bareback feeling fairly well while keeping those more well endowed and uncut in mind with its design.

I thought these were a fluke the first time I used them. So I had to try them again. These are the best condom I have used thus far. I tried them all hoping to get good sensation and a great fit. Crown, Magnums, Lifestyles, Durex extra sensitive, ONE brand, and even kimono extra thin. None stack up. I am above average in length and this fits great! Girth wise I’m a little above average and again, they fit great. To top it all off, I feel everything! These are the best.

These are good, often recommended for uncircumcised men. The extra room in the head does allow for foreskin movement, and they feel ok. Uncut guys might also give the Pleasure Plus ones a try, esp if you want a slightly larger size, and/or have a long foreskin.
