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.
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.
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.
It does it's job and is dirt cheap. Get it as a spare and you will definitely need it sometimes.
