Softop panel storage

I have an 07' Wrangler X and wanting to invest in a storage system of some kind for the side panels and back panel when I unzip them. Anyone got any ideas? I'm getting kind of tired of seeing them setting out in the garage.

^^^What kjeeper said. The HOSS system rocks.

Also, a handy tip from WF member JD's Dream:

Buy a swimming pool noodle and wrap the roll around that when you're rolling the windows up...it'll keep the plastic windows from warping or sagging in the bag (by filling it up) on really hot days, and from creasing or cracking on cold days.

Only when it's too cold for a skirt.
