soft top window storage

Has anybody used those roll-up storage bags for the side and back windows?
Just wondering if they would scratch them up too bad

I was hoping somebody used these. Looks like they'd make life much easier.
I'm a jeep rookie and thought I'd ask first before I made a huge mistake.

I have the clover patch one. It's a nice little setup and does what is says which is nice. But every time I take my windows out they are badly wrinkled and had a few creases that worried me for several days. They have all managed to smooth out once temps reached 85+ but had me worried until then. But I do like it.

04 Sahara, with a lift, some stuff, and a few things, on some 33's, blah, blah, blah.
A perpetual work in progress. Too much to list, not nearly enough to matter.
My RigRater Score: 387RRv1.0 with a BOA of 18.92 (and just how exactly is this going to help me over that big arse rock?)

I've been using the Cloverpatch one for years. Love it and the windows are still scratch free.

This Cloverpatch roll looks pretty great!

When I bought my 2-door Sahara 7 or 8 months ago, I bought the big Mopar bag that fits the three windows in between sheets of felt, but it keeps them flat. It works great, but is pretty big and I try not to carry it with me. My dealer said that I should never roll up the windows (like how you can roll the back window up to the roof and tie it there) because even if nothing touches it or scrapes it, the act of rolling it up puts tons of tiny scratches/cracks into the window.

Is this true, or does this Cloverpatch roll really work without scratches or cracks? Any other testimonials of you guys who have used this thing? Also, would you keep it tied to the rear of the Jeep as shown, or would you take it with you to avoid theft, etc.?

Thanks for any help!

I either toss it in back or strap it to the roll bar.

I have the mopar storage bag and I am not a big fan of it. I like to keep the bar on the back window and it does not seem to fit in the bag (with the bar). So, I use the bag for the two side windows and they do not fit as well as I like.

I have been running the Cloverpatch one for almost three years scratch-free. The felt panels fully cover the windows and I like the fact that I can easily take the top with me all the time. Yeah I'm short the half doors but if the weather turns at least I have everything else in one easy storage package. I keep it clipped to the roll bar all summer long.

I went to home depot, bought a 4inch diameter 10' length of pvc pipe. Cut it to length spray painted it black and got 2 pvc caps for the ends...painted them bed sheet between the windows roll em up, and leave it in the trunk area. Also have 2 short bungees to clip it onto the hooks at the back of the backseat ...looks mint..nice and clean, safe and out of the way..Also...only cost me $15 and took about 10 minutes to make.

Clover Patch Convert-A-Top enables you to travel in open air comfort. With the top up, and windows out, it stops the annoying flapping noise coming from your sail panels. The Convert-A-Top folds up your sail panels and safely stores them. Two straps put tension on the rear bow so your top is tight and flap free.

I would have bought that convert-a top when I had my TJ in Arizona, I was always running it with the windows out but the top on because of the intense sun we had. It was such a pain storing the windows that I swore off ever gettng another soft top. Now with the JK in Colorado I am very happy with the hardtop and the new model doesn't seem to have any leaking problems.

I use KangoPod - Soft Top Window Guard for my windows. Keeps them safe all year round.
I know this is an old thread but for those looking in the future like I was last summer.
