Mountain Mama Teams with Mad Rock on First Maternity Harness

Mountain Mama and Mad Rock Climbing unveiled the world’s first harness for pregnant climbers at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2012.

Ontario, California (August 8, 2012) – Mountain Mama and Mad Rock Climbing unveiled the world's first harness for pregnant climbers at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2012.

Called Mountain Mama by Mad Rock, the full-body adjustable harness was created with an eye for comfort and safety.

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
