Well Karlomagno is the material it is made out of that keep it from getting stiff in cold weather, sure is will get stiffer than when it is 90 deg than it is at 50 below but I don't really want to test that out, but you are welcome to do the testing at that temp and let of know

Answer: 
I believe it is the ability of this cord to remain flexible at frigid temperatures. The cord also seems more rugged and has thicker insulation than other cords that I own.

Answer: 
Its rated to stay flexible in lower temps. Some non-cold weather cords will stiffen up in the cold weather and be unable to bend, etc.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting Cerro with your product inquiry. This 12/3 cold weather cord will stay ‘more flexible’ in extreme condidtions (-58 F) than the typical extension cord. The typical extension cord will become stiff at the lower temperatures. The difference is in the jacket material covering the cords. I hope this helps answer your question.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice Well am lucky have not tested in fifty below weather and don't think I will need to. But was in the middle 30 couple days ago and I did check it out and found that it was the same flexible cord as it was when it way 82 yesterday, have had a few other cold weather cords in the last 40 years of working construction and this cord preforms right up there at the top of them all. For a cord with #12 wire is more flexible than the #14 cords that I have and better than the other #12 cords. Seem pretty tough also so looking forward for it to stand up to bumps and bangs it will see. Great job Husky for a great cord set October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice quiality cold weather extension cord This is a really good quality extension cord. I was looking for something heavy duty to use for hooking up to an outlet generator. Its a nice heavy guage and will work for long runs where you don't want any power lose or need to have a large amount of power. The plus and the outlet end are covered in a thick rubber coatings and has some cord reliefs on them. The cord itself has a good abrasion coating around the thick wires. Should work well in all types of weather and some moderate abuse. October 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Medium duty cord to save a few bucks off heavy duty A good quality extension cord is not cheap. You get your money’s worth, though, when you pay for a good one. I have some heavy duty outdoor cords that will never need to be replaced. I would rate this cord as a 7 or 8 on a scale to 10. It’s not quite as well built as my heavy duty Rigid cord, but it’s still a good cord. Cords like this are not meant to be used as permanent power sources, meaning they will break down with the elements – especially UV from the Sun. 12 gauge makes for a good cord. At 100 feet in length, you lose about 5% of the current carrying capability, meaning you get about 14.25 actual amps, which is more than enough for most project work. This cord’s claim to fame seems to be its flexibility in cold temperatures, but in comparing it to my other cord, I see that it is also rated for the same temperature range, so this seems to be more of a marketing approach to me. If I were standing in the isle, looking to choose a cord, I’d pay a little more and buy something rated as heavy duty over this cord. If you want to save a few bucks and are confident that your occasional use will be well served by something not over-engineered then this is a fine choice. October 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A well made Never Freeze Extension Cord As soon as I received this cable, I wrapped it in a plastic bag and then in a paper bag and put it in my freezer which was set for -10 degree Fahrenheit to test it to see how flexible it would be. After 24 hours, I took it out from the freezer, unwrapped it and checked the flexibility. It was not frigid or rigid at all. I tested the cable for its wiring with a cable tester, and it was good. Next test was for 120 volt 15 amp. The closet thing I had was a hair dryer which was rated as 1875 watts.at 125 volts I directly plugged into the wall outlet with a watt meter in between and saw that the hair dryer was using 1515 watts . Now I hooked it up to the Husky cable and saw the reading as 1410 watts. So I lost about 105 watts in the 100 feet length of cable. A lesson to people who do not know much about electricity: use cables/extension cords as short as possible for better efficiency and avoid power loss. The Blue Husky indoor and outdoor, cold weather extension cord can be used in medium use applications upto 15 amps or 1800 watts from a 120 volt outlet in your house or from a generator. This extension cord offers flexibility in all weathers, especially cold weather. It will not freeze and break, and that is what this cable was made for. It is well worth the price for this 100 feet 12 gauge extension cord. October 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Quality Extension Cord This is a very good quality extension cord. You can feel and see it the minute you touch it. The 100 foot length makes it a great choice for projects such as trimming bushes around the yard, setting up a work station a distance from the power source, etc. I like the bright blue color, as people are less likely to trip over it on a job site, and I'm less likely to accidentally cut it when I'm trimming the bushes with the hedge trimmer. I haven't yet used it in extreme cold weather, but with its heavy duty design, I feel confident that it would hold up well. October 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Extension Cord! Extremely good extension cord. I use a lot of tools and if you want to keep the tools working right you need the proper size extension cord. This cord is flexible, excellent gauge for medium to heavy duty work with 12 gauge size. Does not tangle like cheaper cords. Works in both cold and hot temperatures. Extremely well made. Before using any extension cord be sure to read the manual for the tool you are using. Remember you can always use a thicker gauge extension cord but never use a thinner gauge cord! Buy a heavy duty extension cord reel which will help keep the extension cord new and tangle free. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Medium Duty Electric Cord Looks Heavy Duty! I got the 100 ft. 12/3 (-50 Degree) Cold Weather Extension Cord to use around the farm and for power emergencies. This is one nice extension cord. The 15 amp 12-gauge cord is well designed and is rated at medium duty. It will suit my needs just fine. The cord is a cobalt blue and I don’t think it will be misplaced easily. The label says that the cord will remain flexible to a negative 58 degrees F. The best I could do was zero degrees with the help of the freezer, and yes, it was just as flexible after being frozen for a couple of hours as it was when I put it in. The power tools that I plugged into the cord worked just as expected. I am very happy with this 100 ft. 12/3 (-50 Degree) Cold Weather Blue Extension Cord and I would definitely recommend one to a friend. October 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality cord Short cords are a dime a dozen, but when a cord gets up to the 50+ foot range you have to start to shop around for high quality cords - and this is definitely one to consider. Being 12g it's rated for 15 amps @ 125 volts, really nice for a hundred foot cable! I tested it with a multimeter and it shows no voltage drop across the cable (124.4v) - that's a great sign. It's an extreme weather cord rated for -58 Fahrenheit to 167 Fahrenheit, so it would be perfect for electric snow blowers or winter construction work. It' 12 gauge wire, and has a nice thick shielding... but remains pretty flexible and workable at room temperature. We haven't had any weather dip below 36 yet, so I haven't been able to see how it flexes in freezing weather. All around, this is a great cable that should perform excellent in a cold winter snow storm or a hot summer day. October 27, 2016
