What To Think About When Considering a Lifestyle Belt

Posted by Account Manager on

When it comes to choosing the right lifestyle belt, there's more to consider than meets the eye. Whether you're an athlete, a weekend warrior, or someone who values practicality on the day-to-day, choosing the right belt for you is an important component of your comfort and style. 

From the experts at Arcade, we'll dive into a few factors to keep in mind when choosing a belt that complements your wardrobe– and your activities. 


You’re likely to encounter a wide range of materials when shopping for the right belt, and believe it or not, a belt’s material affects not just how well it matches your outfit, but factors such as comfort, performance, and durability. 

A classic leather belt, for instance, offers a timeless look and is known for its longevity– but it's not necessarily easy to maintain over time, nor does it hold up to outdoor activities. 

That’s why we chose to construct our outdoor belts from post-consumer recycled REPREVE ® polyester, which provides flexibility and resistance to elements like water and dirt while being able to move with your body. 


Functionality is key in all of your gear– including your belt. When shopping for an adjustable belt that will likely end up transitioning from trail to town, look for one that prioritizes functionality in addition to style, including features such as adjustable lengths, sturdy buckle mechanisms, or stretchy materials that provide comfort and ease of movement. 

For those leading an active lifestyle, a flexible belt with a quick-release buckle, such as our three piece plastic buckle, is a game-changer.


For many of us, versatility is just as important to our wardrobes as style. After all, how many of us have items in our closet that can be dressed up for a conference call or down for a hike, depending on what the day brings? 

To the team at Arcade, a versatile belt is one that transitions seamlessly from one part of your life to another– and the ideal belt should be your go-to accessory, suitable for a wide range of occasions, whether it's hiking your local trails or running errands.

That’s why our athletic belts ensure all-day comfort from our signature stretch and are designed with multifunctionality in mind. 


Style is a reflection of your personality, and all of the items in your closet should complement that– including your belt. At Arcade, our belts are crafted with both performance and style in mind. Designed using colors and patterns that serve as a powerful addition to your outfit, we pride ourselves on creating belts that feature bold design and versatile function. 

Care & Maintenance 

At the end of the day, your belt’s care and maintenance shouldn’t be another item on your to-do list. That’s why all of our belts are machine washable, ensuring that your belt requires no more care than the rest of our outfit. Simply toss your belt in the wash with the rest of your laundry– you can even keep your belt in your belt loops for easy care that matches every busy schedule.  

At Arcade, we design comfortable belts that are simply better, no matter your lifestyle. Our belts set a new standard for what’s possible when it comes to freedom of motion– while always allowing for that perfect fit. Shop Arcade Belts
