The condom. It hasn't changed much in 150+ years... Until now! Introducing Lelo HEX: The world's first reinforced condom. Boasting a honeycomb structure, these condoms are super-strong and super-thin for top-notch protection which feels amazingly natural.
Nicknamed the "re-engineered condom", Lelo has taken inspiration from strong-yet-light structures found in nature and graphene* to create its innovative new prophylactic. With 350 interconnected hexagons which strengthen each condom, Lelo has been able to create an ultra-thin latex for greater connectivity and pleasure, which never compromises on protection.
*Graphene is the thinnest, strongest structure known to science. (We didn't know that either!)
- Regular fit condoms re-engineered for better wear, better sensations and better protection
- Unique 'HEX' honeycomb design strengthens latex and prevents major splits
- Length 190mm. Nominal width 54mm. Average thickness 45 microns

A Fantastic Condom With a Few Flaws
Reviewed: 4 October 2016 by EmmelinePeaches, a Bisexual Engaged Female
I’ve tried a few thinner, ‘invisible’ feel condoms now. Enough at least to consider myself well-versed with what’s on offer at the moment, and the Lelo Hex is, hands down, the best one I’ve experienced.
This actually kind of baffled me a bit, as I was expecting these condoms to feel nice but didn’t expect them to feel quite so game-changing. The Lelo Hex isn’t just changing society’s attitudes towards the condom, it reinvented my perspective on what condoms could provide for me.
During use, the Lelo Hex feels almost non-existent; as light as a feather and almost completely undetectable. In fact, the only reason that I knew Mr. Peaches had a condom on was because of the subtle texture that the honeycomb design provides. It’s the most delicate of textures in so many ways and yet it provides that extra bit of oomph to enhance every thrust during use. Warmth effortlessly transferred during use and there was no sense of a rubbery sliding motion (which some condoms can provide). It all felt so intimate and raw, and yet because Mr. Peaches was wearing the Hex I knew that we were secure and protected.
Mr. Peaches found the experience better. For him, the near-invisible qualities of the Lelo Hex were there but he could also detect the honeycomb texture much more too as it wrapped around his shaft and pushed into place with every motion. Far from break immersion for him, this texture was an extra element that he definitely recommended.
I can also safely say that the Lelo Hex Condoms didn’t budge during use until we wanted to remove them. What more could an overly-cautious adult product reviewer want?
Well, amazingly, there is actually more.
While Mr. Peaches and I like using thin condoms one of his biggest complaints (and a mild annoyance for me) is just how awkward and finicky some of them can be to roll down. But to both of our surprise, the Lelo Hex is as easy to apply as any thicker condom. It rolls down in a fluid motion without a single interruption before proceeding to stay firmly in place and providing that not-there-but-still-rocking-your-cock-with-texture feeling. I honestly couldn’t be happier.
Needless to say, every time we used the Lelo Hex condoms we had an incredibly satisfying experience. But despite singing the Hex’s praises I do have a few niggles and gripes that I must mention. The biggest of which has to be the iconic anti-breaking feature of the Hex.
Yes, on the one hand, it is fantastic that the Lelo Hex contains any damage with its honeycomb design but this means that users won’t be able to clearly tell when they’re condom is broken. This means your condom could break during sex and you could be at risk without even knowing. I think given this I would prefer the full break of a conventional condom over the pin prick precision of the Hex’s contained tears. Criticisms aside, there is no doubt in my mind that the Lelo Hex Condoms are the best latex condoms that I have used.
The Lelo Hex condoms are also rather expensive for what you get. If price were no issue I would make these condoms my go-to in a heartbeat and revel in the closeness, the warmth, and the pleasure-enhancing qualities that they illicit from every use. These condoms undeniably provided me with the closest to ‘naked-feel’ that I’ve ever experienced while never once making me feel apprehensive about their strength or durability.
That being said, the price is a bit of a stickler for me and I do feel like the Hex condoms could do with being a little more accessible because, honestly, I love these condoms and I want everyone to get a chance to try them if their personal preference/ethics allows.
People looking for ‘natural/invisible’ feeling condoms.
People who like very subtle texture.
People who want a thin condom that won’t easily slip off/feels secure .
Do Not Recommend to:
People who prefer to really feel their condoms during use.
People who have a latex allergy.
People who disagree with the rhetoric behind the Hex (do a Google search, you’ll see what I mean).
- Amazing sensation, feels truly invisible, great texture.
- Pricey for what it is, still latex, can put users at risk.
- Bottom line
- These condoms deliver amazing experiences, I just wish their value for money was as good.

Are they worth it?

Having tried pretty much every other 'luxury' condom available on Lovehoney, we decided to give these a try. There's always the possibility to be blown away and to see why the higher price is worth it.
These condoms were decent but not the best for us (this doesn't mean that others will feel the same way). The overall packaging of the box and the individual wrappers is nice and they definitely look good.
The condom itself, what can you say? It's a condom like all of the rest at the end of the day. I felt that these were a bit tighter than other thin type condoms so a bit on the smaller side compared to others but no problem.
Feel wise it didn't make any difference to us so probably not worth it when compared to slightly cheaper alternatives. However, the packaging is nice and it doesn't hurt to give them a try.
- Packaging and feel.
- A little bit tight and too expensive for what you get.
- Bottom line
- Good but not value for money.
