Where should I put my windows?

I am at a crossroads.

I need to get something to store my windows in when I have the top down.

Either the storage bag or the roll up bag.

I want to get the roll up bag because of its space saving application.

I'm a little perplexed that the windows can roll up like that with the plastic edges on them for hooking into the Jeep.

Does anyone have the roll up window storage bag? How do you like it? How does the window get rolled up? Does anybody recommend against it?

Thanks for your comments!

We have the roll-up bag and it works great. Have had no issues with the windows, and it is really handy to have them available when on the road.

We have had our for about 6 years, the felt wrap is solid, but the nylon sleeve is sun bleached, a couple of broken buckles etc.... We are planning to get another.

As far as rolling the windows, the windows are stacked in the felt cover, with a layer of felt between each window. We roll from the rear window bottom bar and end up with a 6 or 7 inch roll. Slip the nylon sleeve on, clip it to the sport bars and no worries.

I throw mine on top of the wife's BMW....(its a soft top)...I should think of a better solution, but that's what I do.

If I were to spend money on a storage solution I like the window rolls.

I zip mine together and lay it over the seat on the motorcycle. I can't ride it when I'm in my Jeep

I use the cloverpatch roll for mine if I am taking the windows with me and if I am leaving them at home, I do the same as mrcarcrazy and throw them on top of my BMW. I still use the felt to layer them in even when I am storing them flat.

I bought 3 yards of soft fleece from the fabric shop for around $10 to store my windows. I lay out the fabric over the top of the Jeep and roll the rear window in it then each of the side windows keeping fabric in between every window. I lay the roll on the wheel wells behind the rear seat. When I put the top down it doesn't set down as far as it should but stays low enough. When not in use the fleece gets folded up and stored under the rear seat.

When I'm out and remove them I just fold up the rear seat and put them unfolded between the front and rear seats.
At home I bought a soft window storage unit that works great.....it's also known as an AB Lounger.
