soft top storage ideas?

I just purchased a storage bag for my Windows to my surprise my rear window does not fit in the bag and I don't want to fold it. I thought about a pvc pipe where I can roll it around it with a towel and then put this in the bag. Any ideas or how do you guys store the windows once they are off?

I made a storage bag out of a small tarp and some felt. It can hang on the wall. Just install some hooks on the wall for the corners of the tarp, set your windows inside layered with the felt, and hang the other corners on the hooks... Like a pouch

Very similar here. First off, making sure windows are clean inside and out. I sandwich my windows between large towels, towel, window, towel, window, etc.

Then using the tailgate bar (still attached to rear window) as a "rolling pin", I roll the sandwich up into a tight roll, then cinch with straps/bungees.

Then I hang it from the ceiling joists in my garage/shop. It stays there for march-november.

I have a similar process for the rest of the top and frame.

i hang mine rear window with 2 small vise grips over hooks on pegboard. just put a washcloth under the visegrip jaws as to not clamp to hard or dent the retaining points on the tub.

Thanks for all your comments some great ideas. Also how do you store them in the jeep I was hoping I could take this storage bag with me all the time in case of rain. Specially the rear window

Plan on anything not bolted down will get stolen. You could try under the rear seat, or rolled up. Either way it takes a decent amount of space.
