Rear Windshield Wiper Replacement

So my rear windshield wiper on my hatch pretty much does nothing but streak up the rear window anymore and I'm pretty sure it's never been replaced. I know that it's basically just the rubber blade and the plastic piece on top of it and it sits on the housing that attaches to the wiper arm and, from what I could tell by looking at it, you just replace that rubber blade inside.

Do I absolutely have to get an OEM one or can I get a rain-x wiper and just take the blade out and put it in the arm? If I can get the rain-x and just stick it in the arm what size do I need? It looks like a 12 or 13 inch.
