    this would be a great idea......

    You could use your backpack as extra storage and have an unique animation for it, also it would be cool to have a sleeping bag in the backpack for long travel and your backpack should be able to act as a mini furnace that you can use on mining expeditions and the backpack would 

    provide light due to this. ALL THIS IDEAS COME FROM THE CRAZY CRAFT MOD.

    most devices cant run this mod, but everyone loves this part of the mod.

     Nevertheless even if my ideas are not used still add backpacks to minecraft and make sure to add it in bedrock edition

    Need to carry more storage without making a chest? The backpack will help carry more storage

    GUYS! just stop fighting whether or not backpacks and shulker are the same because it is stupid!!!! Also I always run out of room in early game because I like to explore so it would be a good addition for people who are like me.

    Ok, there is one backpack idea that I would approve of: In case that we make eating different kinds of foods valuable for the player instead of just having him chunk tons of steaks, he somehow would have to be able to carry those different types of food with him. In that case, a "lunchbox" would be something where he could stock different food types instead of blocking ~12 slots in his inventory.

    Let us assume, food rots ...

    https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360017259811-make-food-able-to-rot

    ... whenever a new season starts (maybe 3 moon cycles) ...

    https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360009353652-Seasons-for-most-biomes

    ... and instead of healing us for a small portion, having eaten different kinds of food during a day increases our health recovery speed for that day - we would have to directly heal us with consuming healing herbs and healing potions for recovering health directly ...

    https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360043067271-Hunger-Goes-Down-Slower-PLEASE-

    ... (this would also need sand to recover, for we would need to make more health - throwing (for faster usage) - potions) ...

    https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360043492492-Regenerating-and-changing-terrain-dirt-

    ... this would leave is with 2 backpacks:

    - a "lunchbox" to contain different kinds of food during a season, to improve our basic health regeneration rate

    - a "potion box" (maybe a belt like in Diablo 2?) to bring along larger amounts of healing potions

    I dont think Backpacks are too needed in minecraft
    I know its hard to carry tons of items specially when looting in an adventure or mining in a cave but it breaks the game.
    If its going to add, it must : 
    Be hard to craft like 2 irons 6 leathers and a chest in middle.
    Give 5-15 containers
    Can carry one

    how about backpack holds 9 items loses durabilaty when used. to access storage you  crouch with an empty hand and hit the use key or trigger to access the storage and would fit in the shield slot

    to stop people from having a thousand backpacks at once you cant have backpacks in backpacks, and just wouldn't be able to pick up two at all

    Shulker boxes may work like place-able backpacks, but they are only available in late game after defeating the enderdragon. So i feel backpacks would work great for early game, but, to even it out, backpacks would have to have less slots than a shulker box.

    See the Quark mod for an alternative backpack implementation, which remains balanced and less powerful than Shulker boxes. I think this is a good solution

    Separate space for backpack slot and for elytra slot

    Wow, if this become true in minecraft, the game will be copying minecraft copies. Now really, backpack will be in the chest armor space and will twice your inventory

    maybe backpacks like wearable backapcks? you can put them on by shifting and breaking the backpack and they take up a armor slot (you can turn it off in config to were you can have a chestplate and a backpack but the packpack wouldent give any armor) you would also be able to place it down pick it up with all the items still in it or have it like a grave stone for wen you die all your items go in it unless its full then it just scatters everywear how much the backpack takes up could be be 18 slots smaller then the inventory but still have quite a bit of space and would be cool if you can place it down for camping since there is the campfire

    How about wearing Shulker Boxes on your back, and a button above the crafting book or something to access it?

    Maybe the backpack could only be held in the inventory In the offhand making the offhand the trade off for the backpack?

    @MindBlown101, if Mojang added backpacks they would have 5-9 spaces and go in the chest plate/offhand slot and NOT be upgradable. Many mods have a storage solution for how much they have. Minecraft needs an early-game storage solution, because we have added lots of early-game things.

    I love the idea, limit the amount of storage, like has been suggested it adds 9 slots to your inventory, you wear them in your chest slot. so you can only wear one. they would be useless end game because you would trade up to shulker boxes and elytra on the chest slot. but for someone who is still collecting raw resources in the over world a few extra storage slots for cobble, coal, an extra pickaxe, the look out of the mineshaft they just cleared, or iron would be amazing!

    2 things

    1. I think a specific slot should be added to the inventory for a backpack, or you could equip it in place of a chestplate

    2. If you combined a shulker box and a backpack, it could increase the size of the backpack.

    Maybe it adds a bit of inventory space

    maybe like crazy craft where it just has like 6 -9 more hotbar slots except it's implemented with backpacks

    (I'd like the first one better)

     

    There should definitely be more than one tiers. 5 should be a safe number.

    You should have a special spot in your inventory for backpacks so that they can go over top of armour. It would let you carry more without taking up inventory space

    Backpacks would be extremely helpful to literaly everything, mining trips especially

    Shulker boxes are like backpacks but way harder to get so a backpack you can upgrade and get it bigger would be amazing

    I think if we do end up getting backpacks we should be able to put them on our backs

    I really like the idea of being able to have more inventory space

    Perhaps as a balance, Backpacks could have less inventory space than Shulker boxes, making Shulker Boxes more of an 'Upgrade' that you can only get after defeating the final boss. So maybe Backpacks could have similar space that llama chests have, and it also enables you to wear it.
