Shade for kiddos in back seat

Finally picked up a soft top (Mopar premium), and would like to make the topless thing as kid-friendly as possible. Kids are not riding with me often (typically on the weekends if anything), but I'd like to block the sun from my 1yr old especially. I was looking for a shade for her car seat but my search brought up the sun shades, which seem pretty popular. I'm in Michigan so I think I'm too excited for the short amount of topless time I will get, so I don't think I need/want the shade for the front, but I think the rear would be good. Based on other posts, it seems that spiderwebshade is highly recommended, but I don't see anything just for the rear. Any other suggestions? I did find this:

I got a Dirty Dog rear shade for my JK to provide some sun protection for the kids.

I think you'd be able to fold a spiderweb shade back, then have the option for back only, or both covered. I have one, and although I think I would enjoy the sun on me, in reality it gets hot and I love having the shade full time. And my wife would be mad if she had to sit in the sun while driving.

I've got a full length Spiderweb shade and very frequently switch back and forth between full and rear only coverage, depending on conditions. Here are a couple of pics of how I pull back the front section. It's super quick to do this, and nice to always have the kids covered while having the option for nekkidness up front.

Well there you have it, perfect solution!

This does look nice. Seems like the 2 door version is a little cleaner than the 4 door, but it seems that the Dirty Dog is the only one with just rear shade.

This is a good idea too. Not sure I want coverage in front, but this would give the option. Spiderwebshades said they had customers that take the JKini and use it on the rear too as an option. Not sure if how having 2 JKini would compare to just folding full one back...
