I think that the 'proper' ones are supposed to be like the pic below. But many, if not most, people will just use the standard jubilee ones. Some will scaremonger about those but people have been using them for decades.

If you use jubilees, as most do, try to find some in which the strip is perforated, or the `thread` is cut into it rather than pressed if you know what I mean (it looks like a ladder?) as they are just as strong but less rigid and will conform better to a smaller tube than a solid one. Narrower the better too.
