Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Skip It's Ok
I've had problems with it. It's ok for standard operation but I usually tie it into a power tool so the cord doesn't keep disconnecting. After a few times of doing this the plug separated from the cord leaving the wires exposed. I've never had that problem with other brands. I would not recommend this product.

Love the flexibility. Unwinds flat. Love the way it lights up at the end so I know I have it plugged in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sourdough Not suitable for Arctic environs
The package claims this cord is flexible to -58 F. I bought one to plug in my vehicle headbolt heater. At -2 F it was as stiff as most other cords that local vendors offer as 'good for this application.'
I did a little homework and the results are mixed: The packaging (and embossed in the cord itself) indicates that the material is SJEOW rated. My research indicates that this 300V cord should be good to -58 F, though lack of "-A" at the end of that string leaves this in question.
I bought this to replace a 25 year old cord with molded plug ends from which the grounding lug broke away. That cord has served me well to temps well down to the minus 40s F (Fairbanks, AK). After I cleaned that cord off, I noted that it was SJEW-A (not oil resistant), so I bought a new plug end and fixed it. I'm heading north for the holidays. If I can find one there, I'll buy it, otherwise, I'll have to resort to buying plain cord/cord caps and building my own.
It is possible that my old cord uses finer stranding in the conductors, which would allow greater flexibility at any temperature. I did not cut the Rigid cable apart to find out: I returned it.
This Rigid cord is a fine product, but it fails to meet the claim on the packaging. It's definitely suitable for construction work, but in relatively warm environs. It will not meet the -58 F claim.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dittohead Really Nice Cords
These Ridgid cords are very flexible even in cold weather. The power indicators on the ends are bright and easily seen. I am a contractor and own about a dozen. First class product.

I am using this extension cord with a treadmill in my basement. It works well and seems extremely well made.

Nice cord...but should have bought a longer one. I think I will get a 50 also. Good value.
