You can stuff them behind the rear seat. Then let the rear window lay over them so they dont catch any wind. Or if you know its not going to rain, bring them inside.

I roll mine up in beach towels.

The Mopar bag works great if you don't mind leaving it laying flat on the floor of the cargo area. I have used mine for about a year and I just throw everything on top of the bag and haven't had any issues since the bag is so thick. I tried rolling the windows up and IMO it makes the windows harder to work with after you unroll them.

If there's a chance of rain, I roll them up in the Clover Patch bag and keep them in the back of the Jeep.

If there's little or no chance of rain, they stay at home laying flat.

Talking 5 Towels, Sleeping Bag Stuff Sack and Straps

X2 I think this method actually is easier then having to deal with a bunch of sewn together pockets. Plus then you have towels handy if you need them. I did a write up on my technique here-->Soft-Top Window Storage with Towels and a Sleeping Bag Stuff Sack

I take the side windows and carefully lay them one on top of the other (inside of the windows touching) in the back of the jeep and then place them flat under the Jeep cargo mat that came with my '12 unlimited to protect them. Been doing that all summer, no issues. I made the mistake of rolling up the back window and strapping it up using the inlcuded elastic bands and while the bands themselves and rolling the window up did no harm, the window rubbed against the metail soft top support on the inside and i have two gnarly scratches up both sides of my rear window so NEVER do that. I came across that rule of thumb too late....so now, i either just unzip and fold down my rear window, or i take it completely out, roll it up carefully, and lay it against the back seat on top of the wheel wells. keeps it nice and secure back there.

Clover patch- works great. The main advanage to Clover is that it fits snugly on the back of the Jeep. Straps line up perfectly. I just leave mine there. I added a $2 pool noodle in the middle to help keep the windows from (temporarily) creasing. Not a scratch on my windows.
Towels and a tent bag or sleeping bag as mentioned above even cheaper.
