    Backpacks should be a wearable early game variant of the shulker boxes. It should have less slots so it won't outshine the shulker boxes.

    Make the backpack limited like the saddle bags on a donkey, only having maybe half an inventory worth of space. Also make it an equipable item like the offhand for the shield or torches, except it would have its own slot of course. This way a player can only use one backpack.

    what if there was a backpack slot above the shield slot...where you could place things like a quiver to store your arrows, or elytra wings, freeing up your chestplate slot for your diamond armor

    or a backpack that gives you some extra inventory space

    I think this is a great idea, especially when youre first starting out you cant have a shulker box

    i think this would be a great idea! i think you should have a slot next to wear you would put the shield, and then you can wear you backpack !!! i also think this should consist of: string, leather, and ONE gold because gold is kinda useless and a backpack would be something VERY helpful !!!!

    I'm only imagining the safest way of introducing this into the game would be to mix leather with the shulker box to create the backpack which must be worn instead of a chest plate but can either increase the slots in the inventory directly or add a new button in the inventory next to the recipe button that shows you your backpack storage slots. 

    This way there is a trade-off for having more inventory space, removing your chest plate and still having to have a shulkerbox for the item.

    the way it could work is making the craft recipe 8 lether and a chest in the middle, it would give between 10 and 20 slots, would be nice since the sulker boxs are an end game thing

    Yea i understand about shulker boxes but u have to go and kill ender but wouldn't it make more sence to like make the leather worker make it and you can buy it from him so that would make it not so simple to make andit would be a beginner item not a i finally killed ender now i get a shulker box, also it shouldn't have too many open slot so that it would not make it overpowered as described earlier.

    It could be worn on the chestplate slot to differentiate it from the skillet box. And depending on what is in it it could give you different levels of slowness.

    It's a good idea in my opinion. Shulkerboxes are only to get in the end game though and you have to travel the end. As in early game, it is currently not possible to archive more inventory space. Bagpacks would solve the problem! I would think of Wool, Leither and Wood for a crafting recipe, or something like that.

    Shulker boxes are a great way to store items and act like a backpack, but it a late game item because you need to kill the endear dragon to access it but the backpack could be a early game. The storage would have to be smaller than a shulker box because it would be OP as a early game item you would get by storage means I was thinking the space of a donkey with a chest attached to it would be a perfect size.

    It should be made of leather and chest or shulker box.

    I think we should make backpacks that you can wear behind your back, and you can even put stuff in there to carry around.

    A backpack should only have 6 slots max, only be usable in the chest plate slot

    I think if backpacks were to be incorporated into the game it would take the chestplate slot up in the armor that you wear and it would directly expand the player's inventory, but the first one you craft would be 8 leather around a tripwire and will only add per say 5 slots and then you craft it with 8 more leather and you get 9 extra slots added to the inventory instead of 5, and the final form of it would be crafted together with a shulker box and it would add 36 extra slots to the inventory and you can only ever hold one backpack at a time

    Commenting on MaccuPiccu96, the backpack most likely wouldn't add too much more inventory space, maybe 12 at most.

    For the people that talk about shulker boxes taking this spot it would be more efficent being able to have backpacks as a chest item as you dont have to beat the game to do this it will be easier to craft early on if you ever need to carry things

    There should be an extra slot for the backpack like shield slot. And there should be bags that you can carry stuff in and attach to the backpack but has half the storage of a small chest.

    Backpacks should go in the chest plate slot and have 9 extra slots. Backpacks should be crafted with 8 leather. To open the backpack you have to go into your inventory and click it.

    I'd support a backpack that, when equipped, would increase a player's maximum (inventory) capacity by a reasonable amount. A backpack should have less capacity than a small chest, since it is meant to be portable. A backpack should not "spill out" its contents when unequipped/taken-off. This item, like many other items could be enchanted with appropriate/applicable enchantments, but otherwise would function as just another mundane item/tool. Its construction recipe might be: 1x small chest (representing its carrying capacity, albeit reduced due to portability), 1x leather (the backpack's body), and 2x strings (the backpack's straps). Just my 2 cents. Good gaming!

    Shulker boxes already serve as a “backpack,” but the problem is you can’t get them till you go to the end, or unless you cheat for them. Back packs are an amazing idea.

    shulker boxes : exist .. but they'r an endgame item .. u need to get a nether portal , kill bunch of blazes , kill bunch of endermen then locate a stronghold 
    then u  need to kill the ender dragon then locate an end city .. how about having a small back pack crafted using leather thats just as small as a normal chest !? can be equiped like armor ( extra bacpack slot like the off hand ) .. and no it dosent take the functionality away from the shulker box .. because u can carry multiple shulkers in you inventory .. meaning :
    backpack is a simple starter item .. and if u need more space u will need to get the shulker boxes ..

    shulker boxes are harder to find so having a backpack would be cooler.

    shucker boxes are only late game backpacks could be made with leather and a chest and could have their own armor slot witch elytra could also fit into

    I think it would be a good pre Shulker box item, possibly made with leather and string. It could hold less and take the space of a Chest Plate in order for it not to become an OP item.

    How about a 4 leather recipe and 2 string, then then you have it on your chest slot you get 6 extra slots, but as soon as it comes off you lose those spots
