Who makes shinguards??

I was wonderin if you guys could help a guy out. I'm looking to get shinguards because I ride platforms AKA- shin slicers.I was trying to find out who makes some but all I can find is knee/shin guards. I know 661 and lizard skins used to make a neoprene one, but the don't anymore. I don't want one with a hard plastic outer shell either. So I'm looking for either neoprene, neoprene covered plastic or fabric covered. Are there maybe any BMX companies that make any of these??Who makes just shinguards. So if anbody knows, it would be very helpful to me. Thanks in advance,Nik.

The Fox Launch Pads have won some awards. I also wear them, they are very comfy.

Are these the 661 shin guards you referred to?

Check out the 661 4x4.
I use to own a pair but they where very hot so a changed to Roach Rally FR, much more protection and much cooler.
