Arcade x Jimmy Chin: Action Against Climate Change

September 5, 2023

A Product Collaboration Aimed to Protect the Places Where We Find Adventure

OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. – September 5, 2023 /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Arcade (https://arcadebelts.com), a brand on a mission to revolutionize the way a belt functions and allows you to move freely, today announces new belt designs for the Arcade x Jimmy Chin Collection, a collaboration that supports the efforts of partner Protect Our Winters (POW) to help the people and places most impacted by climate change.

Jimmy Chin, world-renowned mountain athlete, filmmaker, photographer, and advocate for the environment, chooses Arcade belts as one of his essential pieces of gear in his kit. Based on the shared passions and goals to protect the environment and help address climate change issues, the Arcade x Jimmy Chin collaboration was born.

The new collection consists of two belt styles that offer unique designs: Ridge and Topo, two tonal black performance stretch belts with detailed hits of a rich red colorway. The Ridge belt is minimal yet modern, with a small black-on-red Jimmy Chin name seal tab, thin interior red stripe, and a black mountaineering patch design positioned next to the buckle. Ridge also features Arcade’s new A2 buckle design, providing a more streamlined fit and ease of use. The Topo features a tonal topographic design on the buckle, with elements of red trim stitching on the belt loop keeper, and a debossed name seal tab for a detailed and dialed in look.

With each Arcade x Jimmy Chin belt sold, 10% of sales will be donated to support Protect Our Winters, a non-profit organization that mobilizes and advocates policy change for everything from clean energy to protecting public lands from fossil fuel extraction.

The new Arcade x Jimmy Chin collection is available today at https://arcadebelts.com/pages/jimmy-chin-collab and in specialty retailers. MSRP: $37.95 Ridge | $42.95 Topo

The Arcade x Jimmy Chin collection is part of Arcade’s Give a Damn initiative https://arcadebelts.com/pages/give-a-damn, a program that gives back to causes and organizations focused on making the world a better place, including Protect Our WInters, Save the Waves, Big City Mountaineers, and the High Fives Foundation.
