Have you experienced inconsistencies from warrant inspectors?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Have you or someone you know experienced inconsistent WOF fails? Did the 'petrol leak' turn out to be non-existent or the lower front ball joint just need a clean to pass the inspection? We're working on a story as we know there's plenty of you out there who have failed a WOF … View moreHave you or someone you know experienced inconsistent WOF fails?

We asked, listened, and collaborated directly with farmers in the making of this gear. We tested and re-tested in on-farm environments. We re-engineered what farming workwear can be with your needs front of mind.

We brought our decades of experience creating world-class performance gear. Add to that a legacy of Kiwi innovation, a challenger spirit and a practical attitude that’s been part of Line 7 since we started back in 1963.

Every detail has been reviewed and refined – without overlooking the obvious. Breathable, flexible, functional and comfortable, while still being supremely durable and waterproof. Made to fit farmers of all shapes and sizes, with a dedicated range for women. Built to last, and last a bit longer still, with an included repair kit that means you can fix it up quickly yourself.

Now take it out there, try it on and put it to the test. Wear it out and wear it again. We’re pretty damn confident you won’t be disappointed
