Thanks in advance for any recommendations.
All your requirements are pretty subjective. You may have to try a few different brands/models before you find something you really like.
Right now, I'm using Shock Doctor (I've got 2 different mouth pieces) but I don't have the latest model (shown here)
I have this model
and the version before it.
Many of these types of guards are re-heatable/re-formable and easily customized (trimmed/snipped).
In case you take some good shots to the chin/jaw, I also recommend you keep chewing gum in your gear bag...
