Good soft top window storage bag?

I am looking for a good storage bag to roll up my side and rear windows when out driving. Something that I can store in the jeep while out just in case it rains. Mopar has a bag but 120 bucks isn't worth it. Any suggestions?

There is a bag called the "clover patch",but i went with the MOPAR bag.

Check out some of our vendors like Prozack for example and they might be able to get it cheaper for you.

I just use a small blanket that I keep folded in the back of the Jeep. When I take a soft-top part off I roll it up in the blanket and stow it in the back. Works great - no cost.

The Clover Patch and the Bestop ones are both under $80.

Looks like Clover Patch for me. Just need something durable to keep the plastic windows away from rubbing and scratching. Having a 98 with half doors I know that scratches are going to happen but trying to keep that at a minimum. Thanks for the advice guys.

x2 for each window. Looking for a large enough tent bag and some type of strapping to keep it more compact. As of now, it sits on the floor in my rear seating, or I could put them in the trunk..

Take a blanket or some large pieces of felt/fabric from wally world cut just bigger than the side windows. Layer fabric-window-fabric-window-fabric-window-fabric. Roll it up and put it in one of the storage bags for a camping chair. I had the stuff laying around so it was free, but even if you but everything, it shouldn't be more than $30 bucks.

I guess you could call me cheap or frugal. I took and old king size bed sheet and folded it in half. Then you can lay a window on it, overlap the sheet and put another window on it, and overlap the sheet again and then roll them up and drop them in a pillow case. Done. Easy and small enough to keep in the jeep.

Thanks Raven. They (side windows) seem to be equally difficult to roll either way!!

I took some old beach towels and used my wife's sewing machine to stitch three sides together - then turn it inside out (like a pillow without stuffing). I used 6 old towels to make 3 pouches. Slide in the windows, roll them up and use a set of bungee balls to hold them together.

Pretty much free - unless you count the $2 for 6 bungee balls

Homemade Storage Bag for Trektop Pro

Need some ideas for a bag to hold Trektop Pro glass windows. Want to be able to carry and thought of possibly hanging it from headrests so nothing might shift on top of it or they slide around. I know that Bestop sells something like this but the top cost enough - trying to save some money!

Thanks
