Packers, you will never want to go back to a rope cinch after you have used this super cinch, Arizona Cinch.
Arizona Cinch is only used for pack saddles and is the best to keep it balanced. When it comes to riding with a sawbuck saddle (not a Decker) each one of the D-Rings usually has a cinch come down.
The Arizona Cinch features a pad that is 12″ wide by 36″ long, the straps come up with snaps that snap into the d-ring and has buckles at the bottom. When the cinch comes lose it is then very easy to use the buckles (see in the pictures) to tighten up the cinch and balance out the saddle.
The Arizona Cinch will help you balance your saddle and pack equipment. This cinch was designed for fast cinching and when your cinches get loose you will not have to pull your pack. You never have to take your pack boxes off again to readjust your cinches or loosen your load because now you can loosen your cinches from the bottom of the boxes. Notice the buckles, simply pull up on the buckles, readjust your pack outfit. Snap in to the offside of your pack saddle and then attach it by snaps into the near side of your pack saddle and then adjust each side to make sure that your cinch is centered.
What is it made of?
Beta straps, 850 PSI per inch, cordura exterior. The wool felt goes against the animal for comfort.
The cinch is 12″ wide, blue felt with mill felt cinch; double rigged. It can be easily adjusted by 4 roller buckles with a pack load in place.

This is an easy-to-adjust cinch for packing. The thick wool lining seems comfortable for the mule. Great customer service, to make sure everything fits properly.

We have purchased 4 Arizona Cinches over the past 3-4 years and average about 6-7 pack trips a summer With 2-4 mules. All of our sawbucks now have Arizona Cinches. We love that we can adjust the cinch without having to unpack the load. It also has a lot of adjustment for different sized mules.

The Cinch has been working good. I’m just using it on a young mule that’s carrying a light load. The cinch stays back away from the armpit. I’ve just been letting the straps hang down but they don’t seem to hit the animal. I do have to unbuckle the strap to unhook hooks on the saddle to take off and put on, but I think that’s the way it should be. It’s great not to have a big latigo knot under the pack. It’s tempting to get one for the Horse;) $$
