Has anyone seen these polos? Half gel?

So I was at my local tack shop a few months ago and saw these really cool polo wraps. They started off as what appeared to be honeycomb gel, just like this pad

and then maybe 1/3 or 1/2 way thru the wrap they changed into a regular white polo wrap. At the time I wasn't smart enough to take note of the brand. Ive tried googleing almost anything I can think of and I tried to find grand prix brand polos or ovation because both have that honeycomb gel type half pad. If anyone has seen these or knows about them, let me know? I was trying to look them up online because I do all my hore shopping thru ebay/paypal so I buy things online and cant find them online anywhere! any help is greatly appreciatedthanks

Call the tack shop :) See who their polo suppliers are.

I tried googling, but didn't get anything.. haven't seen or heard of them before.

We had some for one of our race horses Sly Flying which were cooled then he was wrapped after racing... i dont think they used them for very long though? Atleast they dont use them now.

I've also seen them, also can't remember the brand. A lot of people these days are wrapping with Gel-eze under their bandages. I'm assuming this is an off-shoot of that.
Perhaps they are Eskadron?
