The best rain guards/window visors

I've seen a few things but most threads died out. I want some rain guards but I want to know which are the best. AVS and Weathertech pop up plenty, the in channel ones. Any good? I just need something that will hold and that will allow me to crack my window when it rains/snows.

Not sure, we ain't got nothing like that here. FYI the local autozone doesn't sell the same stuff that the US store

@cunFFS13 Yeah, I want something custom fit, I don't want it falling off in a year.

Just picked these up. I like the style better, heard too many issues with fitment on the in-channel ones. I should have them early this week and i'll let you knowhow they fit.http://www.ebay.com/itm/271315514296...84.m1497.l2649

Not a fan of how they look, I never liked the style on the Civic, but I am curious how a (exterior mounted?) visor would function.

What I like about them is they are close together where the doors meet in the middle. Others had huge gaps and looked silly. I think the shape helps with road noise but I guess I'll find out do soon enough.

I just got the Ford ones. They are not bad, could be better. But they have been on for about a year in the weather and haven't been a problem. I don't notice much wind noise from them but do like the ability to leave the window cracked open especially during the summer. It is nice when it is raining too...

I had the Ford ones but they cracked where they slip in behind the mirror and then started peeling off. I ripped them the rest of the way off and replaced them with EGR in-channel-


I love them.
