Windshield coating for rain/snow? Something better than Rain-x?

Hey guys,

I used to have a ton of these available from the detailing world but I don't know what's what anymore and really tired of using rain-x (I always had a bunch laying around) because it doesn't hold up in any extended rain or any snow.

Anyone have any other recommendations that are available to purchase retail, locally, or online?

Aquapel is the bomb. Lasts a good 4-6 months. I even use it on my side mirrors and they get dirty a lot less. Rain-X is not even competition for it, Aquapel is far, far superior.

Hard to find in Toronto, I know Nextmod sells it in Markham for a decent price ($8).

I'll check nextmod and maybe pick up a couple.

Forgot the name but there is Japanese car wax that is very water repellent and can be used on the wind shield. Probably more cost efficient since you can use it multiple times and wax your car too.
