We experimentally observe polarization-locked vector solitons in a passively mode-locked fiber laser. The vec-
tor soliton pulse is composed of components along both principal polarization axes of the linearly birefringent
laser cavity. For certain values of birefringence and pulse energy these components propagate with a con-
