Old Town is a brand that has a very long tradition of innovative technology and dates back all the way to 1898 when they started making their first canoes. Even today this brand continues manufacturing lighter and durable kayaks, which are usually made of polyethylene and Sperlinear technologies.
The Old Town Vapor 10 Angler kayak made for recreational fishing is a kayak that is sporty and at the same time very efficient and stable kayak, and even though it features a very streamlined design, the cockpit is very spacious with adjustable seat and thigh pads.
This is actually an entry level mode kayak that offers some useful features such has a molded-in cockpit tray together with a cup holder, adjustable foot braces and molded-in paddle rest as well as built in carry handles and a drain plug.
This model is 10 foot long and 28 inches wide and it will allow you to reach hard accessible places and to navigate through the water quietly so that you can easily sneak up on your catch.
