This protoshield for Arduino by Freetronics is the best available. It comes with all supporting components already fitted as surface mount parts and both stackable and low profile headers. It even has a gold plated surface for super easy soldering!

Freetronics version v3.0 ProtoShields are the best Arduino prototyping shields ever designed. Not making any bold claims or anything, but they are totally awesome.
They come with all the supporting components already fitted as surface-mount parts so you can start using them right away, and we even ship them with two sets of headers: regular male break-away headers, and also stackable male/female headers! That way you can decide whether to use it as a super low-profile board using the regular headers or have the flexibility of stacking multiple shields on top of each other using the stackable headers.
A major design criteria was to provide maximum prototyping area rather than waste space with parts that you might only use on some projects, so the proto area extends all the way to the ends of the PCB.
What’s not to like? We think they’re a work of art!
