The Rain-X Latitude series of windshield wiper blades offers ultimate visibility in rain, sleet, and snow. The Latitude's synthetic rubber squeegee resists cracking in extreme temperatures, and prevents ice and snow build-up through the elimination of exposed metal components. Rain-X Latitude wiper blades fit over 98% of vehicles, thanks to the pre-installed small j-hook adapter and included multi-adapter for side pin, large j-hook, and bayonet wiper blade arms.

Fits 98% of vehicles' wiper blade arms thanks to included multi-adapter
Easy to Install

Latitude wiper blades are for use on either originally installed standard or curved-style wiper blades. They come pre-installed with small j-hook adapter, and the package contains a multi-adapter for side pin, large j-hook, and bayonet wiper blade arms. The Rain-X Latitude Version 2 wiper blades fit I&L (Insert & Lock) and PTB (Pinch Tab Button) wiper blade arms.

High Performance Wipe

The contoured design of the Latitude wiper applies even pressure along the entire blade length for a smooth, clean wipe every time. A specially blended graphite-coated rubber blade delivers the ultimate smooth, clean, chatter-free wipe. The blade's built-in aerodynamic spoiler significantly reduces drag, noise and wind lift for a smoother driving experience even in less-than-ideal conditions.

Ice-Resistant Frame

The Latitude's ice-resistant frame prevents ice and snow build-up through the elimination of exposed metal components. The durable, rubber-encased substructure increases wiper flexibility and adherence to the windshield in harsh conditions. This means more visibility in severe driving conditions and a longer windshield wiper life.

So, this was my first attempt at the "contemporary" wiper blade design and I have to say I was extremely disappointed with the Latitudes. Right out of the box they were streaking on me. The driver side wiper was leaving a huge smear patch in the middle of my line of sight. They were very quiet, but just didn't seem to hug the windshield at all. I have since moved to the Bosch Icon's and they are a far superior product in my opinion.

I had Bosch wipers on my VW Passat and they never really cleaned off the windshield well. I've had the 20" Latitudes on for two month in a typical New England winter (rain, snow, sleet, more snow) and they've worked like a charm. I would recommend them over Bosch, they are more substantial and look cool too.

When I bought these blades for my Honda Civic, I also bought a set of Bosch Icon blades for my wifes mini van (which takes a 28" blade). The Bosch blades where much more expensive than the Rain-X, so I thought this would be a good way to find out if the extra cost was worth it. Within a few weeks of installing the Rain-X blades, they were already not wiping very well. It was like there were areas of the blade that weren't contacting the windshield very well. They also started falling apart. I lost the end pieces after about 2 months on one blade. From that point on, the blade itself would start sliding up the arm. I would then have to re-position it back.

The other major issue with these blades was how ineffective they were at freeway speeds (50 mph+). They would lift as the blade was on the down stroke. Which shows you how bad aerodynamically they are. As a comparison, the 28" Bosch blades on my wifes van never had this problem.

Yet another major problem was winter performance. I live in Minnesota, so we see lots of freezing weather. The Rain-X blade would get real stiff and would wipe maybe 40-50% of it's length, and not do that very well. I can't tell you how many times I wanted to rip those dam blades off my car.

I ended up using these blades for about a year, only because I couldn't afford to buy new ones (was unemployed for a little bit). In reality, I should have replaced them after about 4 months. On the other hand, the Bosch Icon wipers on the van are now 2 years old and still do a good job. I did replace my Rain-X wipers with Bosch Icon's and what a difference. I am having none of the problems I had with the Rain-X wipers.

In conclusion, spend the extra money for the Bosch Icon's. They are worth every penny.

I bought these for an Odyssey minivan in Jan of 2012. They worked great at first. The perfomance started going downhill about 6 months after installing them. They are now useless 11 months later. It was misting on the way to work and I could hardly see anything. I added a customer picture showing my view right after the wipers "wiped". I will be trying a different brand next time.

These were super easy to install right out of the box onto my 2001 PT Cruiser. I didn't need to use any of the included adapters. There's enough adapters included that it looks like they would fit on quite a wide range of vehicles. Installation took less than 5 minutes.

Great in the rain! I drive 60+ miles per day to and from work and mostly busy highway driving, so when it's wet out I need to keep the windshield clear, and these do the trick!

Being that I just installed them, I don't know how well they work in the snow. If they last long enough for next winter I will update my review.

Edit: 2-17-2012 Reduced to 1-Star rating: It's been less than a year and I need to replace these already. During the summer months I use RainX on my glass so I used the wipers only in heavy traffic conditions. With a very mild winter they have not been used much for this snowy season. They're simply not worth the money even with the rebate they offered. See my photo in the customer images section. I can barely see out of the windshield and have to constantly clean the windshield off manually. It's past time that I got rid of these and got some decent blades.

I have used these for 2 months now and I am very disappointed. They work great in rain but work very poorly in snow. They are so bad in snow I consider them a real safety hazard. I have now replaced them with the Ace brand that I have always used in the past for the winter months and will probably just use the Rainx wipers in the summer. Also end caps fall off.

The Rain-X Latitude wiper blade promises advanced visibility through simplified design. Gone are the springs and hinges that conventional wipers use to try to keep the blade on your windshield. The Latitude is basically a floppy graphite-coated blade that molds itself to the shape of your windshield, promoting more uniform contact, pressure, and as a result, visibility.

I've been using mine for several months now and have always been pleased with their performance. They're definitely quieter than any other wipers I've ever used and they do eliminate those annoying streaks of rain/ice/salt that can form when conventional wipers start to break down.

Installation was supposedly simple, but the mounting clips that were provided were ill-fitting. Plus, they're made out of lightweight plastic that felt very cheap - I was afraid that I'd break them while trying to fit them to my car's wiper arms. I finally gave up and had my mechanic put them on since I had a routine appointment coming up anyway.

My only ongoing concern is how long they'll last given the plastic mounting clips and the soft, delicate feel of the blades themselves. I'll update this review if I run into any trouble, but so far so good.
