The deflectors are good if you notice that you're getting allot of chip damage. And they can also deflect strikes to your windshield.
They don't hold moisture against the paint like a bra type protector.

This will just protect against chip damage in the area that it covers. Nothing else IMO.

Well then good. It will protect the area it covers from chip damage. That's about it.
