I purchased two of these from Amazon 4 months ago to "tame" the shore power cords on my sailboat. The fit was very good (snug), and the sleeve made it easier to handle the two 30-amp cords, since it held them together snugly. With the sleeve, the two cords handled like one soft-sided cord, rather than two floppy cables that didn't always want to stay together, or that would sometimes get a twist or loop in just one of the cords. The sleeve was also plain black, so didn't call too much attention to itself running down the length of the boat.

Unfortunately, I sold that boat, and the shore power cords and zip sleeves went with it. Bought a new boat, also with two 30-amp shore power inlets, so thought I'd get a couple more of these sleeves to tame the cords again. BIG MISTAKE.. the design has changed for the worse. First the sleeves are MUCH too big. On the package it says the sleeve will fit 2 30-amp cords (what I have) *or* one 50-amp cord. That was true with the old design. The new one would easily fit 4 or 5 30amp cords, it's almost as big around as my forearm. So instead of being easy to handle, it's like I've got a big black firehose with two little wires running through it. It doesn't handle like a single, easy-to-grip cord, there's way too much fabric to get your hands around a "coil" of power cord.

It also looks moronic. Not just because it's a huge baggy black firehose, but because some idiot at Marinco thought it would be cool to change to a (big 3/4" wide) yellow zipper. Because everybody wants a snazzy, blingy power cord to pimp-up the appearance of their boat at the doc, right? This think looks like a Fisher Price "my first power cord" that's oversized and baggy to boot.

Was a decent product, now it's garbage.

===========
Update - so I decided to take these stupid sleeves off and toss 'em (I unfortunately waited too long to return them), and surprise.. one of the zippers broke. So I reiterate: they're garbage, literally.

I ordered the Zip sleeve, listed as only one color (black). I have used the Zip sleeve before, great for combining power cord / tv cable, although the only drawback is that they consistantly fade and deteriorate in just 2 boating seasons. Much to my surprise when the new zip sleeve arrived it was BLUE (#Zip-02), now actually I think the blue might have a better chance of making it beyond 2 boating seasons, so since I use 2 zip sleeves on my power cord I went back not to return the blue one but to order another. Surprise again, only black is listed. I have contacted Amazon and they are working on what happened and how I can get another blue one because it is STILL listed in only one color - BLACK.

I fit 2 cords and a hose into mine. Lots of space. Keeps cords organised and increased safety on dock.

Great looking cord set cover. Held 2 30-amp cords with ease. Convenient Velcro hangers support the cover and there are ample so it’s held securely to my lifelines without sagging.

These keep your cord looking neat, but only last two seasons in the sun before disintegrating into dust. I’m probably on my 4th set in 8 or 9 years. Wish they could make them more UV resistant.

Disappointed on how quickly this material fades. Plus it only lasted 2 years in WI weather on Lake Michigan

As everyone else says about this item, it looks great for about a year then falls apart. No other product on market so I buy one about every year.
