Bedgear has signed professional bass angler Chad Pipkens as a brand ambassador. Growing up, Pipkens competed in every sort of athletics. His true passion was developed for the waters and outdoors at an early age while fishing every summer at his parent’s cottage on Higgins Lake, Michigan. Pipkens first competed in the 2013 Bassmaster Elite Series following his 2012 championship at the Bassmaster Northern Open Tournament. He enters his 5th Elite Series in 2017 with two consecutive Bassmaster Classic appearances.
“At our level of competition, there's not a single physical skill that makes one angler more successful than another. What separates the best from the rest is the ability to make decisions and adapt with changing conditions,” explained Pipkens. “This only happens when you are mentally tough and thinking clearly. The more well rested you are, the greater chance you have to make quick, clear and accurate choices. This is what separates a good angler from a great angler and this is why I rely on Bedgear to help me get “sleep fuel” for my days.”
