Wear them so your eyeballs don't get spliced by the sun.
The Oakley Polarized Splice Goggle takes the term 'high-end' to its absolute ends and beyond. High Definition Optics are achieved through the glare-killing Plutonite lens and the distortion-slaying XYZ technology. The Splice Polarized also relieves pressure from being plastered on your face all day thanks to a unique internal skeletal support system.
- Polarized Plutonite lenses blocks all glare and 100% of UVA, UVB and UVC radiation so your eyes are protected from the sun
- Unique frame design reduces pressure on your nose with an advanced frame design that uses your cheekbones to support the spherical lens, instead of the bridge of your nose
- Flexible O Matter urethane frame wears comfortably all day and remains flexible even in super-cold conditions
- F3 series anti-fog coating repels moisture and prevents fogging from the inside
- Triple-layer fleece foam creates a comfortable seal all day long
- Tapered XYZ lens technology gives you distortion-free vision at all angles of vision—even at the periphery of the lens
- Compatible with all helmet types

is the gray polarized lens mirrored ? or looks it mirrored when the sun shines ?
This is not mirrored, usually if an Oakley lense is mirrored it will say "irridium" in the title, thats their type of mirror coating. Linked ya to this site, so you can get an idea of what it will look like looking out of the lense. Cheers
Im looking in to buying my first...
Im looking in to buying my first pair of proper ski goggles but theres so many brand and types that i have no clue were to start and in desperate need of some help! from everything i have looked at iv got it down to oakley but not sure what type or lens to go for the a frame and splice look like the best but im not sure what what one would be best for me. so any pro skiers out there that know ur shizz about goggles please help me:D
Hey, i got a ton of different goggles and been snowboarding for a while. I would say the splice are a great pair and I am buying a pair next pay check. Dont think you need a pair of polarized ones quite yet. They would cut glare big time but you can always buy a polarized lens down the road.
I would say look at the non-polarized version. Buy a pair with a persimmon lens or Hi Yellow and then an iridium type lens for brighter days. The persimmon will work in all light conditions but it is always nice to have a lens for brighter conditions. And the splice is going for bout 100 bucks, which is pretty good. Oakleys are solid and I have had no probs with my old pair. I have a pair of Smiths too which I love as well.

what conditions is the grey useless in, and what conditions are its strengths?
This is primarily to be used on sunny days. Here is a link to a really cool feature from Oakley so you can see what it will look like:

How does the grey lens compare to the VR28 lens?
Grey is actually a fairly neutral (aka. useless in many conditions) lens, basically just to cut glare. The VR28 has a 28% light transmittance, and is for flat to medium light. YOu can go to the Oakley site, and click on the Splice, there should be a tab right below it that says lens tints, and you can select the tint you want to see how it looks looking through it.
