Heat shrinkable tubing is disclosed which provides cushioning and vibration damping particularly useful for hand held power driven equipment. The tubing is extruded with internal ridges running along its entire length, which when heat shrunk on a substrate provides air pockets for cushioning and vibration damping. Embodiments disclosed include multiple layers of such material and multiple layers with smooth and texturized layers extruded concentrically on the primary vibration damping layers.
