Hey, guys. So today I'm here with the Smittybilt Soft Top Storage Bag, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. So everybody loves putting their soft top back in the summer months to enjoy that open air driving experience with that nice weather. However, if you fully take your soft top off of your Wrangler, you run into that predicament where you wanna store it away but you don't wanna damage your soft top. Now, if you're a hard top owner and you're looking to put your hard top back on in the winter months, you also run into that same predicament. Now this soft top storage bag is gonna be a perfect solution for just that. It's going to fit your whole soft top with layered fabric in between to protect your windows so they're not getting damaged or scratched while they're inside the bag.This is also gonna have a nice handle on the top here and be very durable, making it very easily portable so you can take it wherever you like. So this is gonna be roughly $80 and there's really nothing else like it on the site right now and I do really like this soft top bag because it is made of quality materials. So with that being said, there are other bags like this for just your rear windows but that doesn't solve the issue for your complete soft top. Now, this is gonna be an all-in-one bag. This is gonna store everything that you need, be very durable, and keep it very safe and I definitely think it's worth that $80.Now install's gonna be a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You're gonna need two tools in order to get your soft top off of your Wrangler. However, with this, you need no tools at all, it takes no time at all. So speaking of the install, let's jump into that now.So to kick this off, we're gonna remove all of our windows and then remove our soft top so we can put them all in our storage bag so I'm gonna start with the side windows here. So we're gonna go ahead and take off our rear window. So go ahead and open up your tailgate. You can unlatch your plastic tabs underneath your belt rail retainer, underneath your tailgate retainer. Pop off your tailgate bar and unzip your top. And we can fully remove the rear window. So now we're gonna go ahead and hop in our Jeep, unlatch our header, and fold the soft top back as per Jeep's instructions. So once our soft top is half folded all the way down, we can take a T30 Torx bit and remove the two Torx bolts that are holding in our arms.So after we do that, we'll be able to fold the soft top back over the back of our Wrangler. So after the soft top's folded all the way back, we can lift it off of our Wrangler. So now that our soft top is completely off, we can go ahead and move to our soft top bag. Now, this is gonna have zippers on either side as well as zippers on the top here. So we're just gonna go ahead and unzipper them all. Then we'll be able to fold the front of the bag over and expose all of the inside of the bag. Now, you're gonna have multiple felt layers. These are gonna be for your windows to make sure that they don't get scratched, they don't get damaged while they're inside the bag, which I do really like about this. Let's go ahead and just start putting our windows in. Gonna start with our rear window. Gonna fold a felt layer over, protect that vinyl window. Take our next side windows, lay that in, fold over our next layer. Do the same thing with the other side window.So after that, we can install our top or get our top in the soft top bag. Now, you wanna make sure that your top is as flat as possible. So now with the soft top as flat as possible, you're gonna move it onto our soft top bag and it's easiest to do this on the floor. Now the whole soft top will fit inside except for our bows here. So after we have it completely flat, we're just gonna fold it one more time to make sure that it fits inside of our bag. Fold it back, kind of shimmy it down and flatten it out so it'll be able to reach up here for this top zipper. Now we can fold this part over and start to zipper the sides. And then we can zipper up the top here. So I'm just gonna take our covers and put them over. So this is for our arms. Make sure that they don't get damaged. You're gonna have a little strap here that you can tighten that down onto.So now we can attach our longer covers for our outside arms. And with a four-door, it may fit a little bit differently. Now, we have a two-door so it's a little bit more compact and that's why our zipper is hanging out down a little bit farther. That's okay. Everything's still gonna be covered. Everything's still gonna be in one spot and protected. We're gonna do the other side. So this is even gonna have a handle on the top to make it very easily portable. So after everything is all together and all zippered up and strapped down, then you're all set to go. So that's gonna wrap it up for my short review and install.

Soft top storage bag
The construction of the bag is very high-end and the quality of the zippers are great. I did have some difficulty getting it in the bag and being able to zip it successfully. I imagine I will get better at it. However, storing it once a year I may not develop that skill level! It’s a nice bag and it’s great to have everything in one place and protected for the winter

Soft Top storage bag
Great protection for the windows on my soft top.
Great way to store both the top and windows store in sleeves of bag also protects them from getting scratched.
I also use it to store the Soft Top in the winter months. Could use "stiffened" inserts to hold shape when hanging up. Smittybilt brand, great value.

I was trying to figure out a way to store my soft top out of the way during the winter months. Thought about building a shelf or hanger of some sort until I found this. Simple to use, heavy duty and the top is easy to move around when in the bag. Two hooks in the wall and the top is up and out of the way. Smitty's got this one "in the bag"!

This storage bag is well built and does a great job of holding the rear and side windows when removed for summer driving.It would be nice if it had stiffeners to hold its shape when hung up for storage.
Do you have to remove the canvas completely from any hardware or will it fit in the bag without doing that? Or can you just fold it back remove it from the Jeep and put it in the bag? Watching the video it shows the canvas still attached to its hardware and placed in the bag. I have a TrekTop NX Glide and I wanted to make sure it fits too.
The soft top does not need to be removed from the bow assembly to be stored in the Smittybilt Storage Bag. The Smittybilt Storage Bag will only work with the factory soft tops, and will not work with the TrekTop NX Glide soft top.
Love the fitment note that directs you to whether the part fits, and this is the best confirmation screen with pics of what you ordered, confirmation that its in stock, shipping address, etc. Super easy to use.
Jay M's, 2010 Wrangler JK Sahara UnlimitedCustomer Service Specialist I’ve always been into cars of all kinds but I really fell in love with my dad’s Jeep. That Jeep was the first vehicle that I felt free in. There is absolutely nothing on the road that is like it except for another Jeep. I love the family associated with the jeep community and the aftermarket options...
