You'll want the stress reliever to be durable since you'll be squeezing it throughout the day. The outer layer is what keeps the material safely inside. The most durable materials include rubber, Lycra, cotton, and thick plastic.
You'll also want to consider the internal material as some materials will seep through even the smallest holes. Gel-based materials and plastics tend to maintain their shape even if the cover has worn down.
