Love my Old Town Vapor Kayak. My husband installed a hatch
cover and pole holder for me off your website. It went in perfectly
after we watched the detailed videos off your website. I used my
new Kayak for the first time
Last week and it was so much fun! We previously had Merriwether
kayaks and I was skeptical about changing. My fears were put to
rest as soon as I started paddling! Wow! It seemed almost
effortless to get across the lake. The tracking was great! The Vapor
10 is so spacious, and I love the adjustable back support! I am not
a small woman, and I got in and out easily. I love the brilliant blue
and white kayak colors, and have gotten so many compliments.
This Kayak is so great, I would recommend it to anyone who likes
to Kayak or fish. My hubby loves fishing with his. We went fishing
in a cove and a wind came up. We handled the waves easily on the
way back. Although we did get a bit wet! Lots of fun!
Nice entry level kayak. I bought this for my daughter - she loves the
easy handling and the fact there is room for her dog. Service from
ACK was great. Best price on the net and quick shipping.
Great kayak. I have had a few kayaks and this tracks well. Lots of
room for legs.
So happy with my purchase! My dog can ride along and I love that.
very pleased with Kayaks - solid construction and good value
I have been thinking of getting a kayak for a while now and finally
went ahead and bought one. First of all the price was excellent and
the shipping was very fast and free. Took the kayak out for the first
time and being a beginner I don't have anything to compare it to
but I will say it works great. I was looking for kind of a leisure
kayak for paddling on some of the smaller lakes around but also
wanted one that could go down the bigger streams in the area and
this one works really good for that. Very happy with my purchase
and look forward to using it more and more.
I have read where people say this kayak isn't fast. Nope, it's not a
touring kayak. It's a recreational yak. And it's not hard at all to
maintain speeds of 3mph. Then again, I don't compare a Jeep
Wrangler to a Dodge Viper. This kayak does what it is suppose to do-
which is not cover 30 miles in one day. It is very stable, has a huge
cockpit with skirt availability, and plenty of storage area. While it is
not going to set any speed records, it is also not a bobber in the water.
It's fast enough for what it's designed for. The seat, does leave a little
to be desired as far as comfort goes. That is easily fixed by adding
additional padding. I have a an SOT and I put my removable Seals
seat right on top of the vapor seat and it works like a charm. Overall a
great kayak that will give you years of service....
I bought this Vapor 10 for my girlfriend so we could paddle together. It
is a good beginners kayak. The Vapor 10 is easy to paddle and control
and light enough for roof topping. The large cockpit makes for easy
entrance and exit. It is very stable and handles most water and wind
conditions. I recommend this kayak for either a beginner or advanced

Austin's price, order procedure and delivery service were outstanding.
Free shipping of the 47 pound kayak was a major plus. It arrived
promptly and undamaged.
Great little kayak. In a pinch you can squeeze two lighter people and
two medium dogs in it. However you lose a lot of mobility in it. Great
little boat to fish out of it aand it is extremely easy to transport. I
really like this purchase and ACK was great to deal with.
Second vapor like mine bought
one for the wife, very stable
love the large cockpit opening
both of us a bit on the big side
very easy entry and exit plenty
of room for gear would
recommend for anyone
wanting to get out on the water
I don't know why people shoot
this boat down. I give it 5 stars
and I guess people try to get
latest and greatest but
remember "the fish don't care
what yak you got." If you like
it that's all that matters. I'd go
head to head in a fishing
tournament with a more
expensive kayak owner. Never
once has a bass swam up to
my bait and said to me "oh it's
not a Hobie" and swim
off....Great boat for beginners
