Is there a high quality snow brush that won't scratch your car?

I feel like these cheap snow brushes witht he course bristles can scratch the paint and palstics of a car and from some articles i read online about them in general.

Is there a high qualiy one that is less course or alternative for those of us who have no garage?

saw this at canadian tire but still skeptical: http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/garan ... ml#Reviews

You still have to use the plastic part on your windows to get the ice off Disappointed But Relieved Face

Doing this on a new car and you see the scratches all over the window ..Face With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of Joy

It's the cost of living in Canada......

Get a winter beater. There is no solution to parking outside during the winter and saving your paint.

Stratmosphere Ultimate boars hair brush were selling for $49.00usd if you want to spend the cash.
For those wanting to save, then the best brush is a $17.99 Dip N' Wash car washing brush, it even has rubber side trim to protect it from marring your paint.

I bought bunch of these when they had at my local supermarket for $4.99
I am an auto detailer and any brush not matter how soft will mar and swirl the paint, best to just remove the 90% of the snow with a Wash N' Dip brush and then the last 1/2" covering with your mitt.

I have the one linked in the OP and it seems to be fine.

If you are really anal about it, I have seen a few people using their leaf blowers, but of course that is only going to help you if you are at home, unless you are going to carry a cordless one around in your car, LOL

Yes they’re both the same. Only difference is the telescoping feature in the first one. I actually own the second one.

There is nothing but foam rubber on the front and literally impossible to scratch the paint.

That's only true if there's absolutely no dirt or any other contaminant in the snow or on the car under the snow.
People will believe what they want to believe whether fact or fiction.
'tis most frustrating when they aren't open to see and/or learn which is which.

I’ve never seen snow fall contaminated with dirt. Even if it there was dirt in the clouds and it lands on your car, it will not be the brush that scratches the paint.

A good coat or 2 of wax and I’ve yet to scratch the paint on my car with those cheap wood snow brushes.

Put on some gloves and remove the snow and ice with your hands.
