Leather Specialties makes a vinyl guard. It won't absorb sweat
As Bob suggests -give it a try. I have 5. Work great.
While I appreciate the concern some have posted about the dangers of valve guards and how wiping down the horn can be far better -there are some of us that can touch a horn and the lacquer vanishes in front of our eyes (well, almost ). I have one horn in brass and it will be green after 20 minutes of playing.
If you get a valve guard, pull it off every month and give the horn a wipe in that area too -wiping the rest whenever you finish playing. You can't put a guard on, leave it for 30 years, and expect it to look new when finally pulled off.
On the Strad I have played for 35 years -I always had a valve guard on it. Valves look new -the other "touch" places where the guard didn't reach are completely missing sliver.
