ST window storage solutions for the trail

Does anyone have or know of any good ST window storage solutions that work well on the trail? The use case I'm thinking about is driving to the trail with the windows in and then removing and storing (as desired). I'd typically not have quick/easy access to the floor of the tub, and likely wouldn't want to pack them under a few hundred pounds of other gear -- or lying unsecured on top of that gear.

Something like the Clover Patch Window Roll seems like a cool idea. (I'll have to see if the Bestop windows will fit.)

Other thoughts or solutions (other than just buying a Badger II )?

Besttop made a bag to hold all 3 rear windows. There's at least 1 actively for sale right now.

They work just fine for your needs.

I'd asked Rob about this and he thought that bag had to lay flat. That initially seems a little problematic to me, but maybe I'm over-thinking things.

Thanks!

The bag is not the issue, it's the windows themselves that limit your abilities to roll them up.

They're certainly pretty flexible at (ahem) higher temperatures. Forgive the stupid question, but is it a bad idea to roll them?

Rolling doesn't hurt them. Just roll them when it's warm and you'll be fine. I have a Badger top with blanked sides that roll up and lash in place. The rear window, I just roll it in a warm garage and leave it up all summer.

Rolling the top is a fall/spring ritual for me.

Thanks Chris and Joshua!

The only issue I see with rolling the side or rear windows is in cold weather (when cracking might occur).

The other issue with rolling the windows is that it can cause scratches when the plastic rubs together.

Put some cloth between each window as you stack them
