Need a good jump rope mat.

I've had re-occurring shin splints over the past couple of years, originating from me jumping rope on the concrete floor in my garage. For a while now I've just used a couple of layers of cardboard to jump on to soften the blow but now I want to purchase an actual jump rope mat to help reduce any worsening of my shin splints. Does anyone know a good mat to buy, or a place to order one?
I've looked at this, Everlast Roll up Exercise Mat | Fitness Buyers Guide, but I don't know if it's really meant for jumping rope. I;m also not sure of this ringside one is overpriced: Jump Rope Mat at Ringside.com

Anyone have any good recommendations?
Thanks.

Can you elaborate a bit on them, since Title doesn't give much detail on the site there.

Thanks

I use them to cover the floor of my gym. I box on them, lift on them, jump rope on them, and etc. Each one is fairly big, but to have adequate jump roping space I suggest you get about four, yeah their expensive, but worth it. Their about an inch thick, not to soft and not to hard, made of a hard rubbery foam. There really isn't much else I can elaborate on, these are simply the best mats your gonna be able to find.
