Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blades Review

The Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blade is blade which seems to focus primarily on consistency; both in its level of quality over time and in what it can offer to customers, no matter any given customer’s preference or driving habits. This is achieved through several features which we’ll touch base on in just a moment. You might particularly like this blade after reading its features solely due to the fact that they’ll all come in handy.

Unlike many premium blades which might be more suited toward those in certain climates, the Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blade simply has you covered, no matter who or where you may be. For this reason alone, you can think of the blade as being one of the safer purchases you can make, being that you don’t have to worry about getting the wrong blade for your specific needs. As such, you’ll find you always get your money’s with this particular product, being that you’ll end up using all of its features at some point or another. This is in contrast to some blades which often have you paying for features or benefits which may not even apply to you in the first place.

Effectiveness

At face value, nobody could argue that the Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blade isn’t an effective blade for all situations. As such, I gave it a high rating in this regard. The fun doesn’t stop here; however, as this blade’s ability to retain said effectiveness and offer you a consistently efficient blade is amazing. Through eliminating many of the structural issues inherent in lots of blades (such as exposed metal pieces on which snow and ice may stick), you’ll find it to be extremely effective in the long term. The consistency here is just outstanding.

Quietness

If you’ve ever spent an hour or two straight driving through heavy snowfall, you may have noticed what happens to your windshield wiper blades after a while; they get noisier and noisier as time goes by. This is due to snow and ice sticking to the blades. If you’re in a particularly hot area, you may notice the same effect from mud as it dries, though perhaps to a lesser degree. The Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blade is built in a way that prevents particle build up, which goes on to reduce the noise it makes over time. While it may be rather average when stacked up to a clean, fresh blade, its level of noise stays consistent where the aforementioned clean and fresh blade will eventually get louder and louder.

Performance Lifespan

When speaking of the blade’s consistency in its effectiveness over time, I mentioned that it tends to repel materials which may normally stick to other blades, causing a buildup over time. As it turns out, this doesn’t only prevent the blades from getting noisy. It also prevents rust which would normally occur on a blade’s protruding metal pieces, increasing the blade’s overall level of durability through preventing one of the more likely issues to cause you to throw out your blade in the first place.

Easy Installation

If there’s one thing that stays consistent across all Rain-X windshield wipers, it’s that they’re incredibly easy to install. While such a feature perhaps shouldn’t have too much emphasis placed upon it, it’s certainly nice to not have to mess around a great deal after first acquiring your new blades. If you’ve ever used other Rain-X blades in the past, you can bet this particular unit will be consistent with your previous experience(s) in this regard.

Warranty

I’ll say from the start that the Rain-X’s trend of consistency doesn’t apply to its warranty; your experience, my experience and everyone else’s experience with the Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blade’s warranty may be completely different. This is because the warranty may vary depending on the reseller you happen to buy the blade from. Someone buying the product on Amazon might get a lifetime warranty, though someone buying it from Walmart might get something completely different. While Amazon has offered lifetime warranties on the blades thus far, it is imperative you check with them before finalizing your purchase. The warranty is liable to change at any time, so take may rating with a grain of salt.

Overall Summary

Outside of its warranty, you’ll likely be happy with the Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blade’s large degree of consistency. Because every last one of its features will be practical for all drivers, no matter their location, you can be sure you’re getting your money’s worth with every dollar you spend going into a feature that will benefit you in some way or another. As such, this is the blade for you if you appreciate a high degree of value.

You may also prefer the Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blade if you want to keep things simple. While many blades specialize in certain aspects (efficiently dealing with snow, etc.), the Rain-X handles everything to some degree or another, ensuring you won’t walk away disappointed with your purchase.
