I use the RainX on my cages. It works very nicely. The water just beads up and rolls off. I still run my wipers, but very seldom more than just the slowest intermittent setting.

RainX works great on glass, but don't use it on acrylic/polycarbonate/plexiglass windshields!

They make a special RainX just for plastic windshields, but I find it doesn't work anywhere near as well as this RainCoat product.

The links from the past threads to this product no longer work, is it still available? The last time the guy who said he is the maker of it was active here was 2015.

Interesting, Amazon also shows it currently unavailable:

https://www.amazon.com/MotoSolutions-Ra ... op?ie=UTF8

Their web sites list quite a few distributors:

https://motosolutions.com/distributors/

A Google search shows up a couple vendors still selling it.

I'll ask and see what might be going on.

I looked through the distributor list and 90% of them are professional site and do not deal with public and the rest mostly are sports and have the anti fog for goggles. The fact that the aircraft place no longer carries it makes me think it is gone or did not live up to expectations. I have learned that those distributor lists are pretty much useless, if you do get hold of someone they usually will tell you they never even heard of the stuff let alone don't carry it. I have seen that with many products that have "distributor lists". They probably sent a sample to the company so now they are a "distributor" whether they know it or not.
