Dagger Stratos 14’5”

The Dagger Stratos 14’5 is a stable boat for entry-level paddlers, but a fun and versatile boat for paddlers with a little more experience who like to play in the waves and tackle the open ocean.

Dagger, who is well-known for building high-quality white-water kayaks, also has a range of superior touring kayaks including the Dagger Stratos 14.5. This kayak comes in large and small versions to accommodate paddlers of all shapes and sizes.

Designed as a sporty boat for beginner to intermediate paddlers, the Stratos 14.5 can be to be used for multi-day trips involving long distances and is equipped with high-quality features to support the journey. The kayak has an ergonomic CFS seating system that has built-in leg lifters and adjustable slide lock XL footrests.

There are also two storage hatches at the bow and stern of the boat for storing plenty of food and camping gear. You won’t have any trouble navigating the kayak in rougher water either, as the TruTrak skeg technology is fully adjustable for your control and comfort.
