Review: I got this condom in the orange, which is very visible. I don't really know why anyone would want a camo pattern, it's normally in your pocket, and if you drop it, it's really hard to find in camo, but orange is a different story.

The heavy black nylon at the bottom of the condom does not cover the whole bottom, if you have a normal size barrel, it has a tendency to sit in the corners, which are not protected by the heavy fabric. I worry that you could shoot through this part, which is only the light outer fabric. To correct this problem, I turned it inside out and sewed a line that channeled the barrel to the heavy fabric, then turned it back out. I don't have a flatline, but for my normal barrels, it works great.

I got a barrel condom from SO in their Xmas stocking, it was different. Shorter, had a cool splat pattern dyed into it, and had the heavy fabric all along the inside. It also came with a nice slider that could clip open, then tighten when you squeezed two tabs. This one fit over my T-8 perfectly, I liked it more than this, but it is not for sale on it's own.
Conclusion: Not the best, but if you have a flatline/apex, it's one of your only choices.
