It's a "must have" for soft tops. I have the Bestop version. Bestop 42810-09 - Bestop HOSS™ Window Storage Duffle in Charcoal For Bestop and Factory Zip Out Vinyl Windows - Quadratec I prefer the Bestop because it can fit inside your tail gate or attache to the roll bar like the Cloverpatch.

You need this as well. Smittybilt 600135 - Smittybilt Soft Top Storage Boot for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler JK 2 Door - Quadratec It looks good and your soft top is completely contained in there, giving you back almost all your storage space.

I have one of those but have not taken it out of the box yet. So it gathers up the underneath portions? Very cool.

I had to put my hard top back on. it was leaking like crazy. Plus I have been travelling a bunch this summer and felt better with the hard top on it while it sits at the airport.

Yes. I bought it for the clean look on top, but the real benefit is the reclaimed space.

I have the Clover Patch and overall I'm pretty pleased with it.

The only minor issue I have is that the straps that attach it to the roll bar don't stay tight, and when they loosen up, the bag flops down into the tub on one side. I could see potentially losing the whole bag if both straps loosened up enough on rough terrain or long road trips. So for now, I tie up the loose ends of the straps, but eventually I'll add some snaps to them.

I also didn't like that the rear window bar can damage the windows if you put it in the bag. Without the window bar in the bag, the windows fold under their own weight, creasing the plastic. I now lay the window bar behind my seats and I use a 2" diameter piece of PVC pipe, capped on the ends, inside the length of the bag. I wrap the windows around the PVC before putting them in the bag, and this prevents the windows from buckling without the window bar inside.

I pop the tailgate bar back in the retainer clips when I take my top down.

I just ordered this duffle and have a question. Do you leave your back window attached to the bar with this duffle, or do you have to remove the bar to store the windows? I would prefer not having to take the bar off, but if it is goi g to mess up the windows then I will.

Take the bar off the window and replace it on the Jeep. Your swing gate will hold it in place. The Bestop rolls the windows side to side while the cloverleaf rolls them top to bottom.

these seem like such a good idea, but every time I've tried to roll the side windows up I feel like I'm breaking the plastic retaining edge along the bottom. is it fine to roll them up?

You shouldn't be rolling them tight or colder than 60F. When I roll them in the Bestop it's never tighter than where the velcro matchs up and usually looser. The straps hold it together.

Tom: Thanks for the clarification. I was under the impression that it wasn't good practice to roll the windows up at all. It makes sense not to when they are excessively cold. I need to look into this once my supertop nx arrives.

There is also a felt piece that goes between each window.
