Comparison of Plush and Hard Sleeving/ Cable braiding

Our hard sleeving is high density techflex-like braiding.  This is shown below (the blue/black braid).

Our plush sleeving is soft cloth-like nylon, much like a fabric weave (the black braid).

The picture below shows the plush sleeving on top, hard sleeving below.

The plush is so soft it cannot support itself alone.  Note that the 20 AWG wires within the sleeving are stiff enough so that in combination the shape can be kept, though the wire is easily bent.  The hard sleeving is more difficult to bend.
