I just got the Movo WST180s...they fit well and seemed to do the trick for me all weekend at Levitate.  Not sure how they perform yet in strong wind but they handled regular breeze really well.

I use Windtech SG-1 for indoor or breezy conditions.  I use the Windtech BG-1 for windy conditions.  They are Made In USA, and work!

I can vouch for the Movos on 568's. I live in a very windy part of the US but I think my mic stand would blow over before the wind penetrates the Movos. Well worth the cost.


ETA: Since the 568 doesn't fit in any cigar case the Movos also provide physical protection during transit/storage.

I used the McMaster Carr tubes for storage of my 568s. Worked very well.

Do you have a catalog number for the McMaster Carr tubes? It sounds like something I can use.
