Pros:
Five different sizes, three-meters each. Very cheap, it will cost several times more locally. Thin and flexible, 125 C shrink temperature. Wall thickness is 0.08 mm for 0.8 size and 0.27 for 4.5 mm size unshrinked.
Cons:
Very gentle and susceptible to high temperatures - it melts if heated too fast with butane torch or if you touch it with soldering iron. Be careful with it.
Other:
It is thin and flexible even in shrinked state, so if you need more rigid cable - apply two or more layers, you can afford it.
Bottomline:
It does it's job and is dirt cheap. Get it as a spare and you will definitely need it sometimes.
