Sun River Decker Pack Saddles

~Quality is in the Details~

Beginning with top grade 10/12oz harness leather, all straps and components that will construct our saddles are drawn out by hand. Each strap is then individually edged to ensure smooth, round edges. All major components, the britchen, shaped breast collar and hip pad, are edged, hand burnished and turned rough out to ensure the smoothest fit and comfort for your stock. Solid brass or Stainless Steel hardware and hand­set copper rivets are used throughout every saddle we build as well­ we never use plated hardware.

For increased strength, two rivets are used for attaching each strap on our saddles and our quarter straps are double­folded over the britchen dee ring adding twice the life to one of the most commonly worn out portions of the decker. Additionally, our breast collars are wedged at the snap to prevent twisting and the ever present problem of rubbing hair off your pack stock’s shoulders.

We use only the best 100% mohair cinches, hand­braided onto stainless steel rings. We offer two different styles of half breeds as well­: Leather bound #4 duck canvas or a breathable Scrim model that helps save on weight and is very durable. Each halfbreed comes stuffed with a two inch thick sheet of rubberized filter material that provides great cushioning from loads and will never mold, mildew or rot. Finally, every one of our decker saddles is built upon one of our hand­made cottonwood trees built right here in our shop. Now the finishing touches are up to you.

The following models are a few of our most popular packages, although, as always, you’re not limited to what you see, each saddle can be customized to fit your individual needs.
