Hello, friends! Welcome to Big Driftless. We design, develop, and create (with our very own hands) quality goods that promote adventure, appreciation for wild natural places, and a life well lived, right here in the Driftless Area. It’s a lifestyle brand for those who love our little spot on the planet, from our shires in the coulees, to the bigger river cities and beyond. It’s a way for us to make things we love, to help you enjoy doing the things you love. It’s for people doing big things in the Driftless Area. This is Big Driftless.

Big Driftless is going through some changes
and will be on a temporary production hiatus
until further notice.
All available products are listed on the website
and will be shipped out in a timely manner.

The brick and mortar version of the Big Driftless
Store in Decorah, IA is closed for now.

Time is needed for reflection and recalibration on
how to best move forward into a more positive and progressive future as a business owner, a human being, and a person of gratitude on this planet.

Stay tuned for more updates.

- Thank You


     Big Driftless is not just about making and selling products, it’s about promoting a lifestyle that is healthy to its customers and the land they love. Big Driftless embraces the grassroots and bootstraps ideals of doing the most you can, with what you have, wherever you are, and will allow these principles to shape our company organically. . . like water through the Driftless.

     Big Driftless is about seeing more people ride bikes to the farmers market to support sustainable agriculture. Anglers who know that in order to catch the strongest fish they need the healthiest streams. Folks who appreciate that sometimes the most important accomplishment of the week is a float down the river. It’s people who understand that happiness isn’t about how much stuff you have, but how much you love what you’ve got.

A Brand for spreading good vibes in The Driftless Area and beyond.
