Soft top windows storage

Ok so it's October so it's getting close to time to pull the soft top off and put on the hard top for the winter. I have the mopar boot which comes with the window roll pouches and I was wondering if it is a good idea to roll the windows and keep them rolled all winter? Will this hurt the Windows?

I am not sure if it will harm them to store rolled up or not. I've always stored them flat, sandwiched in terrycloth towels. On a shelf in the garage, on the camper bed in the winter.
I've even tossed them under the bed at home till the wife busted me!

I roll mine up all summer n put em under the top when it's down(it's been7yrs). Which is all summer. I don't think it'd be a problem. All u need is a little heat in the fall to flatten em out.

For the most part, as long as they aren't rolled or unrolled when they are cold, there should be no problem.

I roll mine up in the storage bag when putting away the soft top for a while. No issues.

Mine are under the bed... when GF asked... I said you don't sleep UNDER the bed so don't worry about it.

Another great storage method is to hang them with clip on pants hangers.

I use the cloverpatch bag/kit with a pool noodle rolled up with the felt kit.

I'll have my windows out for the entire winter but theyre always rolled up and bag is stored on top of my top folded down in the rear.
