looking for good shin protection

My left shin took a nice little gash over the weekend from a jacked up nose press so looking for protection.

Don't really need to hear the "knee and shin guards are for wusses" post but do post up if you have any good recommendations.

So far, I've been checking out DF's selection...

Protec IPS rail guard


or

Demon snow delux (looks too Robo Cop ish if you ask me!!!)

I just bought 686 knee and shin guards. The look similar to the Demon snows, but what I realized when putting them on is that they get in the way of my boot. I cant tuck them in and they arent wide enough to wrap around. The protecs look like they are sized right to sit right above the boot, wish I would have thought about this before buying the other ones.

The R.E.D. Rail guard is the best I have used. It uses a seperate knee and shin guard that lets your knees move freely. Also provides really good protection without being insanely bulky.

However, out of those two I would use the Protect IPS rail guard as this was my knee/shin guard before the reds.

Ahh, didn't even notice these ones! It got a minus one star b/c of the velco catching on to the inner linings of your pants if they have fleece.

I like the fact that they are separated too!

So between the Red vs Protec, which one would you recommend?

I haven't used those but I absolutely love my R.E.D s ones and also have the Protec IPS Rail guards. I like the R.E.D s ones a lot better because they have a seperate knee and shin guard. I am assuming the Protec ones would be compareable as well though I have no experience with them. I don't think I like the idea of the big ass straps wrapping around. The R.E.D. ones have velcro straps, but they are lower profile.

the thing about soccer shin guards are that they cover the entire shin since soccer shoes are low tops. they'll mos def get in the way when wearing snowboarding boots
