The high-end condoms "Sagami Original 0.02 Premium" is a new addition to the popular "Sagami Original 0.02" brand polyurethane condoms, which achieved toughness (three times higher bursting pressure and two times higher tensile strength than normal latex condoms) and thinness (world's thinnest 0.02mm) at the same time. "Premium" gained even more softness and flexibility than its predecessors.

Comes in gorgeous black and gold packages.

Released on Feb. 14th at the price of 2100 yen (approx. 23 USD, including tax) for a 4pcs box. Admittedly it is quite expensive, more than five dollars a shot, but it might be a good idea for lovebirds to enjoy the extravagance on special occasions like Valentine's Day, to make up for the cut in expensive gifts and dinners due to the state of economy these days.
