Hike packsaddle

The packsaddles were formerly used for transporting milk from the farms but are now a part of the folklore. They were created another packsaddle at the end of the 20th century: The excursion packsaddle.

Notice the packsaddle is not directly on the animal, there is always a thick saddle blanket between the packsaddle and the donkey's back for its comfort and to avoid wounding it.

If you make many excursions, it would be better to provide a strong saddlebag which will adapt well on the packsaddle. Then, you will have more storage and the loads will be easier to balance.
