The Orkney Baffle is designed to seal the gap between jacket and helmet.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. 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 that tuck-in to secure the lower section - ensuring there are no exposed areas and that the baffle doesn’t lift when riding. For the best thermal properties, we choose an Italian Merino - the hollow fibre allowing the yarn to trap and regulate heat in hot and cold conditions alike.
