Arcade X Wild Rye Athletic Belt: Wild Poppy
Our Freel and Kaweah shorts are designed specifically with belt loops instead of built-in waist adjustments. Why? Because, for those that don't need an adjustment in the waist, the extra bulk is cumbersome. And for those that do, the adjustment is uneven. We've found that the use of an athletic belt creates a more even tightening. As such, we're thrilled to be able to offer you our favorite athletic belt - the Arcade Ranger Belt - directly on our site.
The Arcade Ranger is lightweight, low-profile and stretch make the Ranger the perfect belt for all your adventures. A superior fit and ultimate comfort come from an elastic stretch webbing that is durable and strong. This adventure belt has one size fits all sizing thanks to a micro-adjust belt buckle. No metal, no worries, this belt makes airport security a breeze. Built from machine-washable materials means you can leave the belt in your shorts on laundry day.
Due to the nature of this item, all belts are FINAL SALE.

This belt is so comfortable to wear while biking! It is sleek and not bulky so I can even wear it with my hip pack if I want to. The belt does not create hot spots on my hips like built in waist adjustments. Highly recommend this belt!
The arcade x wild rye belt is exactly what I needed to comfortably keep my sorts secure and eliminate the gap in the back of my waistband. Soft, stretchy, low profile belt is my go to even when I don’t need a belt.
I resisted a belt for my mountain biking shorts until seeing this option at Wild Rye. I couldn't stand the idea of one more layer coming together at my waist with potential for chafing or adding lumpiness to my look. However, during longer rides, even my best fitting shorts (Freels and Kaweahs), would sometimes slip off my hips enough for material in the crotch to catch my seat when standing, sitting, standing and sitting on my bike seat. This belt is perfect! It's flat (including the buckle), stretchy, wide enough that it doesn't make the shorts bunch up, and keeps everything in place without rubbing uncomfortably against my lumbar pack or any other pack on my back. Perfect solution for my needs!
