Just when you think all the new outdoor-gear ideas have been taken, along comes another one. The latest? Eco-conscious outdoor maternity clothing with style and functionality in the top echelon. California’s Mountain Mama delivers the goods.
Founder Teresa Delfín is a skier, climbing instructor, surfer and more who was disappointed in the lame maternity clothes that left her poorly apparelled even for her daily bike-commute to campus where she was teaching. Tired of borrowing her guy’s fleeces, she decided to launch a technical maternity line.
MM’s sponsored athletes include Canadian Olympic road cyclist Erinne Willock, sitting out this year’s Games to be a mama.
As MM’s literature points out, the first trimester is as physically demanding as mountaineering.
