The Necky Vector 14 pushes the performance envelope of the sit-inside category; designed to perform similar to Necky's high-end sea kayaks. Smart outfitting combined with a performance hull is just one reason the Vector is completely different from other recreational sit-on-tops on the market. the Vector 14 is designed to push the performance envelope. the secondary stability is high, while the initial stability allows paddlers to lean turn or sit it up on edge with ease. Both the hull design and the comfortable seating system pull from Necky's high-end sea kayak lines. The new Support Track Foot Brace System is intuitive, easy to reach, and quick to adjust. The contoured rubber is comfortable and offers a great grip, even with bare feet.

Adjustable foot rests and custom foam pads, built for comfort and control
Necky touring seat with backband
Two Quick-Seal bow hatches with Cross Lock buckle system
Innovative nylon tank well cover with multiple adjustment points

Review: I wanted something that would work like a touring boat, with the comfort and openness of an SOT. Enter the Vector. I have only rented boats in the past. This is my first kayak to own. Overall, it is very stable and tracks well. The wind can push it around a bit, but then that happens to virtually every boat. Storage space is great, and the seat is very comfy. I don't bring GPS when I go out, so the extra bungy in the cockpit works for holding a second waterbottle. Excellent. So far the hatches keep everything dry...the reviews you hear about them being the best appear to be true. Now, it is true that the scupper holes under the seat do make for a wet ride. But I am paddling in Arizona, so this is very welcome in 104 degree weather. Besides, you're in a kayak! If you want to stay dry, don't go on the water. Still, all in all, the scuppers work very well and the ride isnt terribly wet. Not ony would I recommend this to someone else, I hope that I'll be able to find another one like it when the time comes to replace it.

Review: I tried out several SOT kayaks over the weekend: Tetra 12, Necky Vector 13, Necky Vector 14, and Tarpon 140. I used a GPS to determine speed using similar relative effort normal paddling and hard paddling, some turns. The Necky Vector 14 was the winner in terms of speed. It tracks straight as an arrow, and is clearly the tourer of the SOT kayaks of similar length. The seat was very comfortable, but low in the kayak to add stability, making for a comfortable but potentially wet ride. The Necky 14 was less stable than the other boats on this list, but not uncomfortably so. Still, its more of a tourer/paddler than a fishing or diving platform.
