You guys are way off base. The first known use for a "Ranger Band" was when Clayton Moore used one to keep his mask on.

Quiet down separate pieces of gear that would otherwise click, chime, rattle, wear, rub, etcetera, together.

A simple and excellent idea. Now I need a source of used inner tubes.

When wrapped around a container seam: holds top on, creates a grip, more water- and dust-resistant, dull down any flash, creates a "pocket" within which to stow other small items, etc,

Fasten splints or 'sister' pieces to reinforce / temporarily repair something thin that is broken.
