Mtn Mama Debuts First Climbing Harness for Pregnant Women

Usually you don’t want to enter a contracting market. Outdoor gear maker Mountain Mama bucks that trend by introducing the first-ever climbing harness for…pregnant women, allowing them to belay their partners through widening waistlines.

Called Mountain Mama by Mad Rock, the full-body adjustable harness was created with an eye for comfort and safety, and debuted at this year’s Outdoor Retailer tradeshow in Salt Lake City.

The innovative molded padded leg loops are combined with an “X”-Strap design at mid-back that supports and cradles the torso with wide, flexible webbing. An open design through the midsection accommodates a growing belly without bunching or squeezing, while side webbing connects low and away from the chest to allow a full-range of arm motion.

Fully adjustable shoulder straps and leg loops ensure a precise fit, and tie-in at the sternum keeps everything upright. Flexible equipment loops at the sides keep gear at easy reach.

MSRP: $120
