The opti-coat is definitely good protection for the car but for areas with high probability of rock chips like the front bumper it's not going to do much against them. Your paint is roughly 100-200microns thick, opticoat adds 2 microns or 1% roughly, an xpel bra is 200 microns thick, so 100x thicker than opticoat and is extremely difficult to puncture.
