Take a casual paddle on a lake or explore a slow-moving river when you're in the cockpit of the Old Town Dirigo 106 Kayak. This is the shortest and most maneuverable of the Dirigo-series boats, which makes it perfect for beginners just getting started on the water, or vets looking for a boat that's forgiving and easy to paddle. With the Click Seal stern hatch, you get enough storage for a medium-sized drybag full of gear, and the OT cushioned seat and Glide Track foot brace system give you a comfortable and stable paddling platform. The Dirigo has all the comforts of a floating living room, too, like a molded cup holder, thigh pads, paddle keeper, and a waterproof glove box hatch for keys, phone, and other valuables, so you're never unprepared, even when you're on the water.
The Old Town Dirigo 106 kayak is all you need to get out on local waters and enjoy the paddle. The Old Town Dirigo 106 is perfect for casual paddlers looking to explore lakes, bays and gentle rivers, and it's a great boat to enhance and expand paddling skills. Short hull and 44 lb. weight is great for small paddlers who want a kayak that's easy to transport to the water and easy to control on the water. Crafted from super-durable, 3-layer polyethylene for affordability and a long life of easy care. Updated, high-gloss polyethylene compound maximizes distribution of plastic over the kayak mold for dependable strength and durability that stays lightweight and efficient. Stabil-form(TM) hull design delivers outstanding stability and speed with exceptional tracking for its length. Cushioned, adjustable seat offers comfort from launch to take-out, and a cup holder keeps hydration close at hand. Thigh pads and adjustable footbraces personalize the boat fit to enhance stability and control while paddling. Updated footbrace system is contoured to fit your feet, and clear position indicators let you know when the foot pegs are even. Small, "glove box" hatch stores cell phones, keys and wallet inside a sealed compartment; built-in cup holder also included. You won't have to question if your gear is protected because the stern hatch seals with an audible click, and a stern bulkhead helps keep contents dry. Bungee deck rigging at bow and stern secures extra gear on board; toggle carry handles offer convenient transport to and from the water. Safety perimeter line offers a handhold for re-entry in case of a wet exit. Paddle keeper holds paddle secure when taking pictures, birding or fishing.
