Detailed Description

Over the years we have been asked to make a double rigged Decker pack saddle. We feel that the single rigging on our Standard Decker Pack Saddle has a lot of advantages, not the least of which is the ability to move the rigging ring, thereby moving the cinch back away from the animal's elbow. This is not an option on a double rigged pack saddle. However, if you are convinced that double rigging will provide advantages for you and your pack animal, we provide this double rigged pack saddle as an option.


We developed the TrailMax™ Decker Pack Saddle Trees after years of design and testing, and we feel that they are, without question, the best trees available. The bars are molded from virtually indestructible high-strength polymer and shaped in the traditional O.P. Robinette style to fit most horses and mules extremely well. The ¾" stainless steel arches are attached to the bars using threaded inserts that are permanently molded into the bars. There are six bolts per iron, rather than four, for optimal stability and strength. We use only high quality stainless steel for our arches, for strength and resistance to rust and pitting. The arches are tall enough on either style to easily allow ropes to pass through and make storage a breeze.We offer these trees with two arch styles to match your personal preferences.

The Traditional Decker Pack Saddle Tree is ideal for mantied loads and using panniers with Decker hooks.

The Modified Decker Pack Saddle Tree has shaped arches that can be used for hanging panniers as you would do on crossbucks on a sawbuck pack saddle.

We also offer our Decker pack saddles for sale with a cottonwood tree that is manufactured in Montana. The cottonwood trees also feature OPR style bars, which make the pack saddle more versatile by allowing it to fit a wider variety of animals. The cotton wood trees are available with either old style or Modified Decker hoops made from " cold rolled steel are constructed to stand just a bit taller than standard saddles so even when your ropes are stowed, you still have plenty of room to fit your hands in while saddling, hanging panniers, etc. The hoops are attached with flathead stainless steel screws that are countersunk and fastened to the bars with a recessed 'T' nut. The countersunk holes in the underside of the bar are then filled with all-weather wood filler, sanded and finished with linseed oil.


The Outfitters Supply Canvas & Leather Half-Breed is the best available. We build these pack saddle covers out of 24-oz canvas, which is then bound and reinforced with leather. This half-breed is built to last a lifetime! We stuff both sides with a full inch of Duratex breathable synthetic padding to help absorb the pressure of the load. A 1" x 4" pine bar on each side is included to spread the weight of the load across the animal's ribs.

Our TrailMax Mesh Half-Breed pack saddle cover is extremely lightweight and breathable without giving up durability. This half-breed is made using a double layer of tough vinyl-coated Textilene mesh with Duratex breathable synthetic padding behind the boards; both materials dry quickly and allow air flow to the animal. All seams are bound and reinforced with 4-way nylon webbing. Pine boards help distribute the weight of the pack load. Weighs 5.5 lbs.


We handpick and cut the leather for our straps from Hermann Oak Old World Harness leather, the very best available. The saddle has adjustable single rigging; buckles on the tree allow you to place the rigging in the best spot for your animal. Rigging straps are 1-1/4", all other straps are a full 1" wide. We provide roller buckles for easy adjustment on the on-side quarter straps and Conway buckles on all other straps for plenty of adjustment. The leather breeching and breastcollar are doubled and stitched with rolled edges to help eliminate chafing. Our breeching, breastcollar and all straps are well stitched and riveted with heavy copper rivets for extra durability. The hardware is stainless steel for ultimate strength and durability.


Our pack saddles are sold ready to pack with two latigos and a Mohair/wool pack cinch. Specify a cinch length, even sizes 22" - 36" (average pack mules and horses generally take a 28" cinch). All of our pack saddles are in stock and ready to ship!
