    I feel like you should have a backpack by default and everything in the inventory should be in it. However, you should be able to upgrade your backpack and add enchantments that allow for items to be sorted automatically, or for you to keep some of your items after death/have the backpack be converted to a chest with all your stuff so they don't despawn.

    The backpack should have the abilities store as many items as your inventory without the hot bar and should be equipped like a chest plate and our can access it by holding it in your hand or it doubles your inventory space.

    In my opinion, this would make mining so much better because it would have more space.😊🤣

    Crafted from 8 leather and a chest, could slow you down or take up the chest armour slot. Allows you to have more inventory and can be placed in the ground as a chest

    While Shulker boxes add extra inventory, they are very late game and do not make the player look like any more of an adventurer.  Backpacks and campfires make the game feel like more of an adventure, campfires were added and look perfect, now we need backpacks.  Crafted with leather and string, the backpack is made to extend the players inventory while traveling.  Backpacks can take up a chestplate spot, or there could be a new option to have it on with chestplates.  Backpacks will make you feel like more of an adventurer while exploring the vast world of minecraft.  In my opinion, backpacks are a necessary addition to the wonderful game of minecraft.

    I get that shulker boxes can provide extra inventory space but they are difficult to obtain. You have to go to the end which takes along time. I sometimes find myself travelling across the world but I can carry everything I need. Even if the backpack had the same space a a shulker that would be fine. Thanks

    i will be wearable on the chestplate slot and maybe a 3X3 crafting table and the crafting will be a shulker box and rabbit hide so it can be used in the game more because it can be only be got from rabbits and the only use is crafting leather and really thats just a waste of time

    I think backpacks are a good addition and should have an extra slot like the elytra should. (Same slot?) They should be crafted with 1 chest, 5 leather in a minecart shape, and 2 string at the corners. It could be opened by a certain hotkey and have 9  or 18 slots. When taken off they still hold things. Shulker boxes can also be placed in them

    I like the idea, as long as they're not exactly like shulker boxes. Shulker boxes aren't availvable until you kill the Ender Dragon (the end). Backpacks should be a cheaper version of the Shulker Box.

    How Would the backpack be made?: 

    I think backpacks should be made in a crafting table with leather all around a chest (center)

    How would it work?: 

    Just so that the backpack isn't overpowered. I think for one, No backpacks in backpacks. and two, Only use one or two (one in the chestplate slot and one in your off hand) but if you change your off hand slot, the backpack falls (same with chestplate unless you switch it to offhand and vise versa) on the floor as a block, and the shape of it depends how much stuff is inside it (18 slots total/ 2 rows) and depending on how much is inside the backpack the shape of it is different from flat-very full) creators can choose how it works. and same for whenever you put it on the chestplate slot

    I believe that backpacks should take up the chest piece slot in the armor like the elytra, and would have a double chest of storage, but you can't put shulker boxes nor other backpacks into it. and you can't put backpacks into a shulker box.

    As long as they're not to broken, I think only one per player with an extra row and is equal to leather armor, but can't break

    I think this idea would be excellent! It makes extra storage was easier than finding a dungeon, going to the end and finding shulkers! It would also be cool if we could dye them certain colors, a lot of support from me.

    I recently fired up Minecraft and started playing again; my last sign in was in 2015.

    Now when you mine, your inventory fills up with cobblestone, diorite, and andesite. You create slabs, stairs, doors, fences, out of 5+ different wood types and each variation takes up a space. And so on. I spend more time having to managing inventory than I did four years ago. I get it; there should be a reasonable limit to what your starting character can carry, and Minecraft is generous in that it uses slots and not weight.

    Many commented about shulker boxes. Fine if your character is powerful enough to have slain the Enderdragon, traveled to End cities, etc. But I'm on a brand new Survival worlds, and am a lot like a new user to the game.

    There's few mid-level options for expanding your inventory, and a backpack sounds like a great solution.

    • Craft it out of leather and other mid-level items already in the game.
    • Move the recipe book over and put the backpack slot next to the shield.
    • Only give 9 more slots.
    • Maybe restrict the types of items that can be in the backpack (tools only?)
    • Only let the player equip one.
    • Unequipping the backpack drops the contents in that row(?)
    • Don't even show it on the player model as we don't need to conflict with a cape or elytra.

    Mojang can certainly come up with a balanced implementation. This seems like a good fit in Minecraft's game world, and long overdue.

    @MacchuPicchu96 yea but shulker boxes are hard to get in survival, so the backpack would be helpful for peoplr who havent been to the end yet

    Aaron Haughton has a point, and I really agree with LouDude929 about changing up our base game! I thought the player already _has_ a backpack, guys, and it's 27 slots big...

    Backpacks could have there own slot in your inventory we’re you can we’re them, they could be dyeable with tiers and the higher tiers the more storage (leather to iron to gold to diamond to emerald or something like that)(or like leather surrounding chest then to upgrade craft with the backpack surrounded by wool or an upgraded leather)

    i believe this could work out early game to add an extra 5-6 slots. any more than that would be unrealistic and we have shulker boxes which are overpowered enough.

    I think this is a great idea but the backpack could come with some disadvantages suck as a slowness effect depending on how much is in the bag

    I think it would be really cool that backpacks would give u like 2-3 columns of extra inventory space. When its removed from the player's back (make a new player slot for backpacks like with shields) it keeps all the items but other then the shulker box its accessible in the inventory and cant be placed down + I think it would be really cool if the backpack is upgradeable/costumizable like u can put attach a workbench on it, which makes it a portable workbench and storage space, and u can put a jukebox on it, which makes it like a boombox/headphones for when ur out adventuring. Then lastly make it so that u can color your backpack! The backpack should be created with leather, iron and a chest, to dye it put the backpack with ur choice of dye in the crafting bench, same goes for upgrading, u want the workbench or jukebox, put it together in a workbench with the backpack. This would be a really cool addition and a gamechanger.

    That's a great idea But they better make it a lot more easier than the nether chests and the new thing whatever it's called in the end city.

    I say ok, but only one 1x9 row of items.require a diamond for the buckle since it has to carry a lot of heavy things, and it takes up your chestplate space, so you can wear a chestplate and the backpack, similar to the elytra.

    Also Shulker boxes are late game items, it would be great to have something in early game to expamd your inventory and also not have to place it down every time you open it.

    Awesome idea!

    I think that in order to make them different from shulker blocks, you should be able to wear them on your back, and have a limited storage. You can only have one bag in your inventory at a given time, and you can’t put bags inside bags. That way you will have to go to the end and get shulkers.
