Flimsy or soft items are all items made of liquid, wax, veggy, flesh, paper, cloth or leather in addition to rubber hoses.[1]

A flimsy helm can be worn by a monster with horns, as long as the monster is not tiny and has hands;[2] the horns will pierce through the helm, which does not currently affect its function.[3] A non-flimsy helm will be pushed off your head if you polymorph into a form with horns, even if it is cursed, as will any helm that you have not yet finished putting on.

Flimsy objects will not scratch a stone; rubbing them together will create streaks on the stone instead of scratches.[4]

A flimsy weapon cannot be shattered by an attack with a two-handed weapon.[5]
