Who is Drift Dog?
Drift Dog is an outdoor apparel company for men and women who love the word "outside". We specialize in creating apparel that is durable, comfortable, and affordable to meet everyone's wants and needs.
The story goes like this...
Let's just say it was meant to be. Growing up with a passion for graphic design and the outdoors it was hard for Meg & Ben Shuptrine to resist. On July 20th, 2020 the recently married couple decide to take a leap of faith, and follow a past dream. The dream of starting an outdoor apparel company came alive. Drift Dog was created. A drift boat which traveled the United States and finally landed in the hands of the right person might have started the catchy two syllable name, but the Drift Dog became something bigger...

"Being a lover of the outdoors I feel as if we are always chasing something. It could be a view on top of a mountain, or it could be that one big fish that changes your life...We might think we know what's ahead of us, but we don't...thats the beauty of it all. That is the meaning of finding your drift...my chase is Drift Dog"
