I've never had a hardtop but the soft top comes off and on in a couple minutes or less.

hard top comes of easy also , but if your a woods rider suggest you keep the hard top ... downed tree limbs and young growth will give it a work out that might [in my case would] rip the soft top

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Now if you're the type of person who likes to run around topless in the spur of the moment (which I do on occasion) a soft top can be taken off quickly and put under the hood or in the bed until you decide it's too sunny or starts to rain. Unless it's like the soft top I have which was included with the full soft cab, it has a tube frame and can't be folded up, but I do carry straps to tie it down on the bed. A hard top would take trail beatings better but mine has held up well, I have had to patch it in a few places due to wear and abuse.

That would be easier to store than my soft top with the tube frame.
