roll-up rear windows solution

I know options abound for carrying around your side windows and rear window for the soft top when the top is down, but I thought I'd offer up one that works very well.

Start with this bag from Academy (you might have a local Academy store, if not, you can mail order):
Magellan Outdoors™ Large Stuff Bag | Academy

Then add 2 yards of felt from a fabric store, you cut it into three pieces, one large enough to be 3" or so bigger around the edges than each of your windows.

Stack the windows like: rear window, felt, side window, felt, side window, felt

Line up the side windows rigid edge along one side, that's where you'll start to roll it.

Roll it all up and the windows and felt sandwich fits in the stuff bag.

You're on your own what to do about the tailgate bar.

This is pretty much what I do, with the following exceptions:

- Rather than 3 pieces of felt, I use a felt blanket and 2 large microfiber towels.

- I don't have a bag, since the felt blanket is on the outside of the whole thing when rolled up.

- I unsnapped the elastic pieces from the top of the soft top over the back window (the ones that are supposed to be used to roll up the back window in place) and I slip those over the end of my roll, one on each side, to keep it rolled up. I just leave the whole thing in the back behind my back seat.

- I leave the back window bar against the back of the back seat.

- When the windows are in the soft top, I have the blanket and towels wrapped up the same way and stored in the same location.

Yeah the kicker for me was finding the bag. I read many other people using blankets, towels, a sleeping bag bag, etc. I thought the gear bag for $5 and two yards of felt for under $5 was by far the cheapest effective way to do it. Generally I just leave my windows on a shelf I made for them in the garage but days like today that threaten rain make me bring them along.
