    Anyone with both of these can tell me the difference between the two in terms of vision and appearance? Pics would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    OO BIP is a contrasting lens w/a rose tint, BIP is a neutral lens w/a grey tint

    OO BIP doesn't have that rainbow effect from looking through cheap car tints and lcd screens too.

    Thanks for the info guys. As far as appearance goes, is one darker than the other? I have a polished carbon XS coming and I'm wondering what would look best on them.

    From the outside, BIP is darker.

    I agree.
    Certainly for changeable conditions, the OO Black Iridium Polarised is tough to beat.
    In my view, only in super-bright sunny conditions does the BIP have the advantage.

    I've got OO BIP in my Eyepatch 2 - and I am finding more and more that I am using them as an easy 'go-to' pair if I am in a hurry and the weather looks like it will be changeable during the day. It's a no-brainer.

    Awesome. Thanks for the input guys. I'll most likely pick up a set of the OO BIP for the Polished Carbon XS then.

    I thoroughly enjoy the OO line. I was a huge fan of the OO Grey as well, but it lacks that nice iridium coating unfortunately. If you like the Vr28 lenses, these'll fit in nicely :smile:

    I just bought a set of VR28s for Juliets which I'm excited to try out tomorrow. I have a polished carbon XS coming in the mail tomorrow which I plan on putting the OO BIPs in. I had to go through O.com warranty for them. Can't wait to try those as well.
