The Dagger Stratos 14. 5 Kayak isn't your usual big and cumbersome touring kayak. The Stratos is designed to punch through surf, play in estuaries and rock gardens, and track well on flat, open waters. Dagger employed its whitewater expertise when designing this boat to give it a highly maneuverable feel with exceptional primary and secondary stability. The actual shape of the hull is rockered in the bow, giving the boat the ability to aggressively punch through waves and remain playful in areas of rough water, while edges along the length of the hull and an adjustable drop skeg allow the boat to carve and track well on flat water.Dagger is calling the Stratos a high performance touring kayak, meaning it is not just stable and capable of carrying loads to support multi-day expeditions, but it is also a fun and playful boat that advanced paddlers with a whitewater background will enjoy, and intermediate paddlers will be able to quickly progress on. The Stratos is outfitted with Dagger's ConTour CFS seating system, which combines the capabilities of a whitewater seat with a comfortable, soft foam construction of a touring seat. The seating system also comes with adjustable hip pads, SlideLock foot braces, and leg lifters to ensure a comfortable, yet responsive fit. Additionally, the Stratos has the most storage space of any other boat in the Dagger lineup with hatches in the bow and stern of the boat, and bungee deck rigging fore and aft of the cockpit.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
