Ontario, California (August 27, 2012) – Another Outdoor Retailer Summer Market is wrapped up and Mountain Mama is proud to announce best in gear for outdoor families. Mountain Mama invited a panel of outdoor family bloggers to serve as scouts and judges for the Outdoor Family Award™. To keep the process transparent, they tagged nominees on twitter with #outdoorfamilyaward and ranked the winners in five categories. Mountain Mama is proud to present the following companies with the Summer 2012 Outdoor Family Award™:

OUTDOOR PARENT:Osprey Poco Premium Pack

This kid-carrier taps into Osprey’s niche of making comfortable, supportive, light, well ventilated and easy to adjust packs; and provides a safe way to carry our most precious cargo. The Poco kid-carrier includes a hydration reservoir sleeve and a removable/washable drool pad. Plus, it folds easily for storage and travel.


New parents are always looking for convenience and this ergonomic baby carrier gives just that. It’s ultra-light, packs small and carries baby with ease. Ideal for traveling light…which is seemingly impossible with baby in tow.

OUTDOOR FAMILY:Burley Kazoo Trailercycle

Start training your kiddo on two wheels with this single-speed attachment that secures safely behind mom or dad’s bike. Burley’s patented ball-bearing guided hitch offers superior handling, tracking and stability. The trailercycle is easily adjustable for growing children and can also be transformed into a full bicycle with Burley’s Plus TM.

OUTDOOR BABY & KID:LuckyBums Stand Up Paddle Kit

Available in 5, 8 and 11-foot lengths, this wide, stable and light board is a great way to get started. The length makes for responsive turning and easy wave cruising. A slight rocker allows for easy gliding on flat water. The soft traction pad creates grip when wet. The SUP comes with a kid-sized, adjustable paddle.

OUTDOOR PET:Alite Boa Lite Leash

This dog leash has a poo bag dispenser, stash pockets, a nightlight loop and a quick-release handle. It’s also easy to clean and fast-drying…what’s not to love?

Awards are determined based on needs and preference of Mountain Mama’s employees, product testers, brand ambassadors and judges. This year’s judges include Melissa from Adventure Tykes; Seth, designer of My Outdoor Alphabet; Corey and Jentri from Backcountry Parenting; Randi from UpaDowna; Haley from Climb Run Lift Mom; and Teresa from Mountain Mama. None of the products chosen above were given to Mountain Mama as a promotional effort.
