- Flexible all-weather USB3 cable?

Yup, I found the same specs myself. Interesting that the shielding is aluminum braid. That alone might make these cables more flexible. And also interesting is that the cable jacket is PVC – which usually stiffens up a lot when it gets cold.
At least for me, I NEVER intend to use the cables at -20° C. My fingers don’t move at those low temperatures any more.
Thanks for your help,

You made me dig but I found it on their international website, oddly:
Lindy 36663 USB 3.2 Gen 1 A-B 5m: 24 AWG power and 28 AWG signal, 85% braid, 5Gbps bandwidth, 2.2" minimum bend. Under Technical Details:
Yes, it was shipped from the UK and took a couple of weeks to my memory. The cable isn't small/tiny. The connectors seem pretty good and not cheap. I'm happy with mine so far, but again I haven't pushed it lower than -12C so far. I use it for my QHY5III290C video/guider camera. No drop outs or issues noticed at high video speeds when I tried planetary work.
Yeah, not a $10 cable, but it feels better than any of the regular/basic USB 3 A-B's that I had lying around, and the final price was cheaper delivered to me in Canada than the L-Com cables were after UPS surcharges (bleh). I think you should be happy unless you push colder than its -20C rating.
