    Anybody familiar with deep or shallow blue angling lenses? Do they have any benefits over a regular BIP lens?

    Bought my dad the Deep Blue Bottle Rockets. Great on the water. Colors are more vibrant than BIP. I like them a lot.

    Used to have the shallow blue for flak jackets. The yellowish base tint and the polarized blue iridium coating is a really nice matchupand they really helped with water less than 6ft deep

    Thanks for the info. I was hoping to just buy some angling lenses for my hijinx but it looks like they don't sell just the lenses...

    I've had both Deep and Shallow Blue in my Flaks. Deep is darker, but I prefer Shallow...it's good for everything except for really bright sun. Both are great, though. Don't let the "Angling specific" label fool you. They're great for everyday wear, too.
