I'll throw another material into the fray, vinyl tubing, as I don't like the taste of rubber/latex, potential reactions for some folks, and durability. But it is fun to slide into place.

Re: Non-Allergic Tubing for Airstream Mouthpiece

Vinyl water tubing for potable water, aka drinkable" from Home Depot, Lowes, etc. works great. Pretty much the same ID measurements as listed above. Some will sell by the foot, or less.
