Any of the cables without plastic should be fine.

Steve: Avoid plasticized plastics, vinyl is one of the worst offenders. It not only becomes rigid at low temperatures but as it loses the plasticizer it becomes rigid also. Silicone and some urethanes are the only common materials that maintain cold temperature flexibility, unfortunately no one makes silicone or urethane covered cable releases that I am aware. There really is not much else. Cloth as others suggested is definitely better but of course one never knows what lurks under the cloth.
