soft top noise when down and folded

I love riding around with my soft top down. Only thing in hate it's all the noise it makes when folded down. It flaps and it makes alot of noise highway speeds. Just wondering if there's a way to fold it or if there's anything on the market to stop it from flapping. Thanks

They make covers for them when folded up.

PS this was just as an example, there are lots out there but not 100% sure if it would cut down on noise. :/ Anyone else care to chime in?

I have the Mopar soft top boot and love it! Exactly the same material and quality as the soft top itself. It was a VERY tight fit at first but a good hot sun and some stretching was all it needed.

I got it on Amazon for $170 I think. At first glance it still seems a lot more expensive than the other options but when you consider this one comes with nice storage bags for your soft windows I thought it was a good value. And I had read both good and bad reviews about the figment of all the other options so I didn't really want to take a chance.

Edit: And yes, it does completely eliminate any fluttering.

Tuck the sail panels into the folds.Then strap the bows where they come together below the knuckle. I have done it this way for years. Holds the top tight and no flapping.

also secure your seat belts. They like to flap and make a heck of a lot of racket. fold top as nwbronco instructs and I have not had a problem with noise
