    Who is using these and how useful are they? Honestly, I thought they were for ashing cigarettes out of the window when it was raining so water doesn't get inside but apparently there's more too them than just that. :)

    I never could bring myself to buy em for years....always found something else to spend on. Got a set kicked down to me....great! Probably would buy a set if I needed to now.

    AVS in channel for me. Love theses things because you can leave your windows cracked in summertime and it wont be so hot inside. Another benefit is have windows cracked in rain while driving. Its up to you but I will get another set when these wear out.

    I have a set of in-channels and like them. They're nice to be able to keep your windows cracked in the rain or leave the windows down an inch or so on a hot day without anyone noticing.

    I had some on my truck when I first got it, but they didn't seem to do anything, took them off and found out I was right. I guess they make sense in rain but I like it without them. Makes the truck look a little cleaner too

    People in California will not find it too useful - weather is too nice.
    For the folks in the South, where summers are hot and wet, they are quite useful.

    Living in the south with Hot humid summers and random pop-up afternoon thunderstorms they are very useful.

    I use mine to keep my windows cracked while i'm parked outside at work, I don't have to worry about the rain getting in. Between cracking the windows and having dark window tint, my truck isn't a sauna when I get in it at the end of the workday.

    I have the regular AVS stick on kind. The previous owner installed them.

    +1 for the Weathertech in-channels

    Living in the Pacific Northwest and they are well worth it.
