It will be interesting to hear their answer. Personally, I wouldn't, but that's not because of the soft top windows. It's more because of how (in my personal experience) Rain-X doesn't perform well on vertical surfaces. Even on the windshield. Now on cars with normal windshields, the stuff is awesome - I don't even need to use the wipers.

I don't have any experience of vinyl windows but can definitely tell you it work great on plexiglass windows for FWITW.

I would be very concerned with the application process, which requires you to buff it off to get the hazy film off. I'm not about to buff or rub anything that hard on a soft-top window.
