Best brand for grappling shin pads and muay thai pads

Hi just as the title says I am really looking into some affordable very well made grappling shin pads and muay thai pads that people have used. I am not looking for dirt cheap I know you get what you pay for but sometimes those expensive ones are costly just for their name. Please help looking to purchase this week. thanks.

These are the ones that I have (Top Contender Grappling Shin Pads). They are very well made, and are the tightest and most secure shin pads I have ever used.

If you use them, I suggest using them on a regular enough basis to break them in, as the neoprene sock/boot is extremely tight. It takes anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes for me to put the pair on. After sweating in them and having a suction seal form between the boot and my calves, it easily takes twice as much time to take them off.

As an alternative, you can also try these: Combat Sports MMA Training Shin Guards. The striking surface is leather (in comparison to the synthetic leather of the Top Contenders above), but aside from that, the colors and logo, they are constructed exactly the same. I find that standard cloth shin/instep pads work well too, and I have a pair that I always keep on hand to use when I don't want to wrestle with the Top Contenders. If you are new to the equipment, the Top Contenders can't be beat for the price.
