Gear manufacturer Zippo Outdoor has signed Bassmaster Elite Series pro Brent Chapman to a sponsorship deal for the 2014 campaign. The company indicated that Chapman was selected because of the lifestyle he and his family live, which includes many nights spent in campgrounds at tournament venues.
"Brent, (wife) Bobbi, and the kids reflect a lifestyle congruent with the Zippo brand; a recognized and trusted brand known for integrity, longevity, reliability and genuine experiences," said Zippo Outdoor marketing manager Chris Funk.
Added Chapman: "Bobbi and I are equal partners in this business. I couldn't possibly do this without her running the business side of things, and my kids being my greatest fans. We are very happy that Zippo chose us over everyone else out there. They have great gear."
