Rear Fender Question

For those with the Diablo short rear fender or the Dios Design fender, can you tell me if these are functional as far as preventing water getting on your back?

I will confirm that neither will be effective in the rain or even just from a slightly wet road
I have the H2C fender which maybe slightly longer than the other two but I still get the muddy stipe all the way up to the back of my helmet.

Dry weather only or a dry climate is thier only use.
The built in LED strip light is not the best illumination in daylight, so itís best to install an additional stop light.

Thank you so much for the response. The H2C fender was actually my alternative if these two weren't able to stop the rain/mud on my back but never mind, I guess I'll have to make a custom one. The fact that you were able to get your hands on a H2C rear fender is beyond me lol.

My Rebel is one year old this month & I bought the H2C fender soon after purchasing the bike so they were widely available at Honda Bigwing main dealer Thailand.
A few months ago they ceased production of the fender, most have been sold by now & hard to find, there may be a few remaining on eBay though.
