the listing information is wrong. Itis rated for 13A. Check the picture. I received those FAR and those are rated for 13A max.

Edit:
2 Number of Current Carrying Conductors - 13 Amps
3 Number of Current Carrying Conductors - 10 Amps

According to UL General-Use Circuit Ampacity Reference Chart .

is the wire guage a good thickness for the price?.. what about the outer casing? is it an easily cracked plastic, or a more sustainable pvc?

The 25 Ft. version of this cable 3-Outlet Power Strip was FAR. The 50 Ft. version has never been.

What is electrical rating sjtw?

This is the designation for a type of flexible cord ("junior hard service cord") for electrical uses up to 300 volts, having thermoplastic insulation of the conductors and a thermoplastic outer covering. The "W" designates compliance with requirements for outdoor use (water and weather resistant), suitable for use in wet locations. There may also be markings that indicate resistance to sunlight (UV) deterioration.

Approved cords should have durable markings every 24 inches showing the type, size of conductors and number of conductors.

The permitted amps through an SJTW depends upon whether it has 2 current-carrying conductors or three or more, and the size of the conductors. An 18AWG/2 is 10A, and 14AWG/3 is 15A, for example (at ambient T of 86F, 30C).

This wire is 16 awg, I wouldn't use it for anything serious Much better off spending the money on a 14 or 12 gauge wire that will have greater utility for tools,etc. This is mainly just for a few lights or electronics -- 900 watts or so is about as far as I'd push it.

Do not plug in anything with a compressor, a heating element, or 10 amp electric motor using this cord. Some lights, a PC, things like that would be fine.

The seemingly conservative current rating of 10A for this 16 guage cord is due to its length. The rule-of-thumb is to go down in amp capacity every 50 feet, so at this length, one should allow the capacity of an 18 guage cable: 10 amps.
