Storing Soft top windows

Need some input on how to store my soft top windows. I would like to take them with me when I am on the go like at the beach. Any suggestions?

bestop and cloverpatch both make window storage bags. I have the cloverpatch bag which comes with a 4 layer felt pad and a storage duffle. You just remove your windows and sandwich them between the sheets of felt, roll them up and slide them into the bag. The bag has straps for attaching it to the roll bars or you can just lay it in the back seat. They work great and no surprises when you get caught in the rain or decide that it is too hot and want to close things up and run the a/c. My only suggestion is that if you intend to leave them in the bag for extended periods of time, go to Wally-world and purchase one of those swim noodles. Roll your windows around it before putting them in the bag and they won't crease.

When I bought my jeep it came with felt lined pleather bags for the windows. The big key if you're going to roll them up is to be sure that they are clean and dry first. Otherwise, they get all scratched up anyway. For the first few years I actually cared. After a while, I stopped caring and have enjoyed the top a lot more since. I think the bags are still around somewhere. Usually, if I am taking the windows, I have the upper doors stuffed in the back too, and I'll just put all the windows in between them. More often, they all just stay at home.

If you're cheap, just go to the fabric store & buy some polar fleece type material & cut that into sheets to go between the windows as you roll them up. Then put them into any kind of duffle bag that's the right size. My wife made a custom bag for our top, but REI has some that would probably work. The fleece sheets keep the windows from scratching themselves or each other - 1 sheet on the bottom of the stack and one between each window.

Great idea... I am going to look into this (big fabric store right down the street)
And...I was thinking those nylon bags for the folding chairs you see everywhere might just work as well...gonna research this!

I have a brand new set of windows ready for summer just begging for a storage solution...
