You could use black twist tie things around the sleeve in various locations in order to make it stay on better. (beginning / end)

and/or you could use super glue.. (probably not fun to heat up, or smell while smoking)

elastic string, twist ties, zip ties, shoe laces, etc... whatever works for ya lol.

I'm sure glue would work also, and i doubt that it would heat up while smoking... but i don't feel that super glue/hot glue would hold as well as some of the aforementioned idears

Use a scrunchi (sp?) the same color as your hose cover so it blends in. It might look pretty cool.

pull it off and flip it in side out. put the end on just past where you want the cover to start to cover at the mouth end. tie it off then pull the rest down and over flipping it back right side out. pull it down, and use something that wont stick out to much and tie it off. you can try to tie it off with a lot of slack in between the ends so it billows over the other end to cover it

heck even some thin ribbon or thick thread that matches the color of the cover stitched around the cover's end and then left to be able to tie off would look ok and it would be easy to take off if you needed to but stay when you want it on

Out of all the above ideas, I think the scrunchy would look the best.. Unless you have someone that is good at sewing, they could take out some of the elastic so it would grab tighter.
