Old Town Vapor 10 is a pretty short and wide kayak. With a sharp keel that goes the entire length of the boat and bulky soft chines, this boat is stable and tracks pretty well for a 10-footer. Overall, this is a great option if you plan to go on slow, relaxed recreational trips.
Old Town Vapor 10 is rotomolded from High-Density Polyethylene( HDPE). The concept of rotational molding is simple. Beads of polyethylene are poured into a mold. The mold is then rotated inside an oven until the inside of the mold is coated with a layer of plastic. After the mold cools down, you get a hollow one-piece construction which is very rugged and durable.
Old Town kayaks are covered by a lifetime warranty for the hull and deck (for blemished boats marked as BLEMs, the warranty is 5 years). The PDL drive comes with a 5-year limited warranty, which covers defects in workmanship and materials. The accessories, including paddles and life jackets, are covered with a 1-year warranty from the original purchase date.
The warranty applies to the original retail consumer only.
