I use old tire tubes and zip ties.

It's a good way to re-use something that can then be recycled and it's pretty much free.

I like free.

If you do need to buy onen be careful of the neoprene chainstay protectors. They don't seem to do that good a job. I had one for a couple of years on an old Cannondale and when I took it off, saw that the chain had still chewed through all the paintwork underneath.

A much better design involves coiled plastic that wraps around the chainstay.

I've found handlebar tape works well.

As other OPs have already suggested, nothing works as well and looks as good with tightly wrapped inner tube on the chainstay. I don't use zip ties, however. I had too many incidents where zip tie broke off from flying rock or chain slap. I use black duck tape or electrical tape.
