Costco has some nice goodyear ones for around $7. I've been happy with them so far in the recent rain.

I have the rainX ones and my driver side blade will leave all kinds of water unless its pooring....for some reason it will work really well if its pooring. no idea what they'll be like with snow though, just bought them this year. but im not that happy with them. could just be a defective blade and I'm just too cheap to replace it till it really doesn't work.

I think I had some rainx ones and didn't like them. Mine are all busted looking and don't work for **** anymore. I need some heavy duty ones for all my snow seeking adventures.

yeah I am really disappointed with my rainX ones. I would definately say Bosch or even OEM Subaru wipers would be much better than what I have! haha

Look for anything that encloses the blade mechanism. It makes all the difference when your blade is frozen and you have the equivalent of a 1" arc across your windshield to see through.
