“The Orkney Baffle is designed to seal the gap between jacket and helmet (on a motor cycle). 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 a 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 tracked down a very rare 1962, Wildt Mellor Bromley RTR twelve-inch circular knitting machine. Of the three thousand produced, only a handful are still at work. It took the best part of a year and numerous prototypes to fine-tune the stitch density, retention and panel construction.”

Here are some links for the baffle

Apologies if this is not acceptable for the forum (mods please remove if you wish), but they would make good Christmas presents!

(Previous M3W owner: miss it greatly)

Visited Ashley at Dalston today and purchased shirt and baffle, first class well made individual gear, Ashley is very helpful , highly recommend.
(Never met him or Tim before)

The baffle is great. Used it Thursday for the first time when it was very cold and was driving down from Oxford to the other side of Gatwick to drop off the M3W at the shippers for its journey to NZ19 for our road trip there in March. Kept me nice and warm around the neck. Just needed something similar to keep my feet from freezing! The baffle comes in a nice box too and would make a good Christmas present.

I hope those of you that bought some of Ashley’s clothing range are finding it comfortable and effective: he’s just made a video of a recent trip to Portland that I think is pretty cool...

Seems impossible to imagine with the lovely warm weather we’re experiencing today but last weekend in Shropshire was really cold! I wore my Ashley Watson Orkney Baffle for the first time in anger over the weekend and it was great. It was amazingly effective at keeping out the cold and so thin that I forgot I was wearing it. Just need more cold weather now! hide
