Great description. I got it in the bag first try. Now, we'll see how simple the operation is after a generous serving of beer.

I bought this and actually don't use it much. I'm in Ontario and have the doors and hardtop off from May thru September. I also leave my soft top windows at home. I guess if the reports called for the mother of all storms I would use it but generally I just put the soft top up (15 seconds) not clipped in either at the front or the sails and if I get some rain in the door openings then I sit on a garbage bag.

To store it I bought a plastic tote that I anchored into the back and it lives in there which also gives me some secure storage fir other stuff as it has a padlock.

You're going to take it out of the bag to see if you can get it into the bag?

Yes, and I'm proud to report that it worked as well as advertised. Now if it were not for having to spread it all out in the parking lot at work while 250 other people are trying to leave I'd use it more often. At least I know I can easily get it back into the bag now.

^^ Yeah that would be a reason not to use it. I usually spread it on my livingroom floor, but when I leave work I just stuff it in the back until I get home.

I am now feeling a bit sad for not being able to get my cover back in its bag. Turns out it's not you, bag, it's me.

Awesome job. Thanks for the photos.

I put mine on for the first time last night and wondered if I did something wrong - its extremely tight (ripped one of the strap seams first time out trying to pull it down to clip on the frame, and had the strap fully extended), and doesnt go to the bottom of the doors like in the video. Also, my back straps are not adjustable, theres no clips on em, theyre just straps. Emailed Bestop last night, still no answer.

The JK version doesn't have elastic.

Can we get a video of Britta rolling one of those up?
