Ideal for lakes, estuaries and protected waters, The Vapor 12s goes way beyond the basics with features. With the adjustable Comfort Flex seat with a padded seat, adjustable foot braces, and thigh pads, you get a secure and comfortable paddling position.

A great kayak. Very stable in rougher water, adjustable foot pedals and seat are very nice. I have tried smaller, cheaper kayaks that really plow through the water, with the bow tracking back and forth. This old town cuts straight through the water. Its best suited for calm waters but I have had it out in a big lake with lots of waves. It wasn't exactly easy paddling but I never felt like I was going to flip. A great choice for someone who wants a more serious kayak without shelling out lots of money.

Took it down a local river for a camping trip, this kayak is really stable and very easy to maneuver the only time it even felt like tipping was when I did a 180 without slowing down and even then it wasn't so bad. It also took a heavy beating and still kept going, the river had many fallen trees since there was a thunderstorm the previous night and was still raining during the trip. at least 4 times in the trip the kayak collided with sunken debris at least twice beached on tree trunks and came out unscathed. I love this kayak and plan to buy a bunch of silly accessories for it just because it is so great!

UPDATE: Kayak fell off my dads truck at 50 mph rolled for a bit just missing a caddy by a few feet. the only damages are a few scratches along the sides. I took out for a lake run the next week and had no problems.

I'm loving this kayak! Bought it as a gift for myself for my 52 birthday. It paddles nicely and makes a straight shot in the water. It feels sturdy on calm waters. I don't expect to white-water in it, so I can't say how it would work for that. It's perfect for lake and easy river kayaking. I love the open cockpit. It's not a sit-on-top but I still get sun on my legs. My little dog would fit in it nicely....just have to find her a life jacket....

This is our 5th kayak and 2nd Old Town Vapor. I love the low sides and high front and especially like the extended opening as I am clausterphobic in small boats with tight cockpits. The kids can paddle this easily, though it is 50# empty.

it's a very stable kayak, easy to maneuver and get in and out of the water. Only issue that was kind of a bummer is that they didn't use an air hose to blow out all of the small pieces of plastic inside the kayak. If you do get one of these, be sure to get all the plastic scraps out before you put it in the water the first time.
