Posted by Account Manager on

When it comes to outdoor gear, there’s been innovation in every item in our closets – except our belts. That’s why the team at Arcade has spent the past 13 years transforming how belts can function better in every aspect of life, serving as a piece of gear that’s both functional and comfortable. 

While metal belt buckles have been a staple in fashion and function for centuries, innovation in belts has caused us to ask: are traditional metal belt buckles dead? Read on for our answer. 

About Our Non Metal Belts 

When we first started re-imagining the traditional belt, we wanted to create a lighter, lower-profile buckle that allows for a custom fit. After years of research, we opted to construct our buckles from high density plastic that’s incredibly durable, yet lightweight. When paired with performance stretch webbing, these plastic buckle belts are made to move as you do, the perfect addition to any adventure.
