Mountain Sprouts, a children's adventure outfitter based in Grand Junction, Colorado, is honored to have won two APEX Awards for 2008. This year's winning products for Mountain Sprouts include the “Signature Mitt & Booties Gift Set” and the “Rogue Softshell Jacket”.

The Polartec® APEX Awards are presented to the designers and companies that make the most outstanding Polartec® based products. Products are measured against their intended end-use and judged on innovation, style, design, performance, fit and functionality.

“I'm thrilled and humbled to receive two awards - it's a prestigious group of designers and brands that I share the honors with,” says Founder and Global Brand Manager Jen Taylor. "I'm proud of my design team and appreciative of the industry's recognition of the youth sector.”

Mountain Sprouts has now won 4 APEX Awards, including one in 2005 and one in 2007. Past award-winning styles from Mountain Sprouts include the “Moxie Maternity Top” and the “Shag, Baby! Gift Set”.

“Our designs begin with kids, not down-sized versions of adult styles,” adds Taylor. “Our focus dictates function, style and performance for active youth, and our Multi-Generation Guarantee backs our product quality 100%. Kids are tough on clothes – we overbuild to account for rough and tumble, but use feel-good fabrics so kids are comfortable, protected and happy outside. Our commitment helps to create miles of memories and adventure for families in the outdoors.”

Mountain Sprouts was founded seven years ago by Jen Rieke Taylor, a former mountain bike racer turned mom, and her sisters. They knew that more options were needed in the outdoor children's apparel category. Mountain Sprouts is committed to connecting kids and families to the outdoors by encouraging them to ‘Plug Into Nature' in their Mountain Sprouts adventure apparel.
