Let me start out by saying up front I don't know anything about packing because I have never done it, here it comes "BUT" I have been doing some reading and watching videos and the most dangerous of all thinking. All I can seem to come up with is the crossbuck has been around sends Mosses was a baby,and it still works just like it always has right. I look at all these others and what I see is the same thing only different. It seems to me like all these other guys are reinventing the wheel.But what do I know?

These are what everyone used where I grew up so I never knew any better or anything else. I couldn't even begin to tell you why, just that what was used.
I am not claiming to be packer or to know a whole lot about it. I just worked for a guy starting colts and packing C-crews in the summer, hunters in the fall as a teenager.(20+ years ago) So I was just curious if anyone else has used them and what their opinions might be.

Here is a link to a few pics/slideshow of this type of pack saddle being used.

Sure liked that paint mare he was riding at the head of that string. He's got a nice setup there.
