Old Town Vapor 10 Reviews
Most people have bought the Old Town Vapor 10 since it is so easy to bring in and out of the water. It may be a solid kayak, but is proven to be better compared to an inflatable kayak such as the Trak Kayak. The Old Town Vapor 10 is durable and light, features similar to an inflatable kayak so it’s easy to bring along. The price is also quite competitive, so you will definitely get the most out of your buck. This kayak is best used in calm waters; it’s not so hardcore to be used in wild rapids.
Many have bought the Old Town Vapor 10 for simple relaxing paddles out in the water. They could also go out and fish in this kayak. Not really built for the rough rides in the rapids, but this kayak will definitely give you the best experience in terms of comfort.
Generally there were many good reviews regarding the Old Town Vapor 10, but as always there were some customers who felt like this kayak was not the kayak for them. Some say that sometimes the kayak tends to sway from side to side while paddling, some even say that they were not that comfortable when they paddled in the water. But, like all products in the market, nothing is perfect and generally, the Old Town vapor 10 is a good product priced at a good rate.
