A nice recreational kayak w/ some good features. Appears more robust than most of the more basic 10-footers; but that likely adds a few pounds. Tracks very well, likely due to the stern end having a well-defined and pronounced fin-like "tail" which extends even past the rest of the kayak. While this helps with tracking, it does make it not as easy to "turn on a dime".

Very stable, yet good speed for its length - one of the minority of kayaks that can be paddled all the way up to its "theoretical maximum hull speed". (Must be an efficient hull design.) Pretty roomy cockpit even for my 6'3" 200-pound frame. No sealed storage, but you can add a cover to go onto the back storage tray for about $50 (it likely costs less to buy it and add it yourself than to by the 10XT which already has the tray cover installed, since the XT version may cost $100 more that the standard version of Vapor 10).

You should be able to get the Vapor 10 for around $300 on sale, although it is usually sold for closer to $400. Seat and foot pegs adjust easily. A couple nice extras are the sporty-looking design and the snazzy color patterns available. It does lack deck bungie cords, and the drain plug is located in a rather odd, impractical location.
