I'm sorry to not offer an answer to your question. I'd like to speak, though, to my observations regarding these:
The tannic acid in the leather, combined with soaked-through perspiration - etc., seems to do much more harm than good to brass instruments.
If a hand guard is desired, I would recommend a nice fake leather one with gauze backing. Uhh, not pre-made, I'd guess.
