The Orkney Baffle is designed to seal the gap between jacket and helmet. It took six months and ten prototypes to fine-tune the stitch density, retention and panel construction. Made in England, the baffle features split panels at the front and back to ensure no draft cuts through and the lower section stays tucked in when riding.
For the best thermal properties, we choose an Italian Merino Wool - the hollow fibre allowing the yarn to trap and regulate heat. To achieve a seamless construction for maximum comfort when worn under a helmet, we worked with a 1962, Wildt Mellor Bromley RTR twelve-inch circular knitting machine. Of the three thousand produced, only thirty are still at work in the UK.
