Recommendations for quality USB-C charging cables

I purchased the set linked below three months back or so. Already, one of the cables that was maybe used 20 times doesn't charge at all, and there is another that will only fast charge if oriented one way, so I assume it will fail completely soon. Also, I'm randomly getting the "Incomplete connection" warning, which requires re-connecting it to get it to charge properly.

I had resigned to the fact that micro USB-B cables were fragile, so I would just replace them and move on. These USB-C cables are much more fragile it seems, so I'm hoping I just chose ones of poor initial quality.

What cables have people had better luck with?

I got a set of Amazon Basics cables. Seem a bit sturdier than the really thin and cheap feeling cable that came with my S8.

"will not charge Nintendo Switch, Nexus 5X or 6P, Moto Z, Huawei Mate 9,..." So I skipped. Had trouble with some phones using Anker.
