Montanans are used to brushing snow off their cars, since Winter is such a massive deal in our state. That doesn't really mean that anyone really wants to spend a few minutes every morning in the cold to clean their car off. It can be such a pain sometimes to scrape the frost off your windshield as well, especially if it's thick. But there's a solution, and I think Montanans need it.

This is my FrostGuard windshield cover. It seems kind of unnecessary to some because it requires me to put it on every night during the winter. I'd like to counter that argument with the fact that about half the time I spend outside trying to scrape off my car is completely erased. But that's not the only thing I like about it.

I spent a ton of money on windshield wipers after harsh Winters in Montana because the ice would completely inhibit the ability of the wipers to do what they were designed to do, and they wouldn't be fixed by the time Spring hit. This FrostGuard covers up the windshield wipers as well, so they don't get any ice or snow accumulating on them. It's literally saving them from harm.

That Sounds Great, but It Sounds Expensive

Honestly, the price isn't bad at all. Mine was a gift, but it didn't come with a lot of the other amenities that the newer versions of the FrostGuard have, such as the rear-view mirror covers. Despite that, the price of these is quite reasonable, and you can get them online for somewhere around $30 to $40. Not too bad, if you ask me.
