Cate at Crux Crush offers tips for the pregnant climber and reviews the Mountain Mama by Mad Rock climbing harness and a bunch of our clothes, saying:

"In addition to Mountain Mama’s harness, I’m stoked on their outdoor maternity clothes. They get that girls like us are going to keep getting down and dirty, hiking and climbing even when we’re growing a baby. Somehow they managed to design gear that’s cute like the criss-crossed back Marni Movement Maternity Tank, won’t flash your belly or butt, stretches enough but not too much, wicks sweat, is super soft, and also works to keep you warm when layered."

Check out this fantastic full-page feature with Mountain Mama's founder and find out how the company started, why she wants a harness for pregnant climbers, and much more. But that wasn't the only press we got at Outdoor Retailer, the big semi-annual Outdoor Industry tradeshow in Salt Lake City. 

This summer Mountain Mama was mentioned five (yes, five!) times in four days of OR Daily show coverage. In addition to this interview (PDF link) and new product mentions for our adorable Outdoor Alphabet gear for kids and climbing harness prototype, we got a great half-page write-up on the harness and its evolution.

Our Mountain Mama by Mad Rock Climbing Harness made Outside Magazine's "Best New Gear for Active Families" list! Here's what they had to say:

I’m all for active pregnancies, but I have to admit that the world’s first maternity climbing harness for expecting mamas stopped me in my tracks: good idea or bad? Mountain Mama founder Teresa Delfin, who climbed through her first pregnancy, assuaged my skepticism by telling me it’s strictly for top roping, where risk and consequence of falling is much lower than when you’re lead climbing. Co-designed by the gear gurus at Mad Rock, with a full-body harness that won’t dig into the belly and padded leg loops, this is the one—and, not surprisingly, only—harness made specifically for your baby bump. Like all Mountain Mama products, it’s made in the U.S.; still in prototype mode, but should be available in spring 2013. Start 'em young!

Suite101 picks our San Juan Eco Hoodie as an Ultimate Baby Shower gift because it's comfy, stylish, and affordable. Here's why they love it:

Mountain Mama creates high-quality, durable, practical and comfortable clothing that allows women to stay active during pregnancy in style. These clothes are specifically designed for those women who "play outdoors". As founder and CEO of Mountain Mama, adventurer - Teresa Delfin, points out, staying active is good for mom and for baby when expecting.

I am not quite sure what it is about hoodies, but when I put one on ... it signals my brain for relaxation and focus. It is as though I feel safe to "just be". The San Juan Eco Hoodie is a Mountain Mama customer favorite. It is easy to see why once you wear one. This hoodie has a cross-front design, an oversized hood and thumb hole cuffs. It comfortable and easy to nurse in and fits perfectly during pregnancy. It is flattering to my figure and I feel good about the way I look when I wear it. It is super soft and gives me great support.

All Mountain Mama tops feature Bellyglove fit - advanced fabrics create unique, one-of-a-kind maternity and nursing clothing. Bellyglove technology will give you the perfect fit because as the name suggests it always fits like a glove.
