I've been rapidly fixing my Jetta's problems, so now I have started to think about things to "upgrade".
I live in Oregon and it rains constantly. The wipers I have suck. Anyone have any recommenations? I have seen some double-bladed wipers that look good, are they better?

Just wanted to give a shout out to the ORegonians on the site....I run Bosch wiper and they work good just don't last well for me...the rubber splits pretty quickly

Look into Silicon wipers.
Silblade, Piaa or do an Ebay search.
Sliblade can be had for $40 a pair, Piaa about $52 a pair, but they also sell inserts for about $15 ea.
Silicon wipers last upto 5 years compared to rubber which will last 6 months to 1 year.

but the rubber ones leave my trace on the windshield, like how you can wash a windshield and still see where the wipers go, you won't get that with rubber ones.
