    Just based on some of the feedback i'm seeing. It seems that the solution to the Backpack would be to have it block the placement of Shulker boxes within it.

    Now for the backpack itself. I'd be inclined to suggest the potential for attachments to it. So let's say, as an aesthetic attachment, allow the attachment of a Flag to it. So that a player could Tromp around with their custom flag displayed.

    The other would be a Bedroll attachment for the backpack. An add-on similar to the Bed recipe, but a bit cheaper resource wise. That would allow a player to sleep at any location as needed without terraforming to safely place a bed. A key limitation would be that the spawn point given from a sleeping session would be limited in nature. I've had a number of times, i'm sure others have as well, where something like this would be great for an initial cross region hike to locate a suitable build site on a Single Player or a Multiplayer Server

    I think back-packs should be similar to shulker boxes but not entirely. Back-packs should be crafted with leather and another material and should also only have the ability to carry six items. One of the main downsides should be that it takes up the chest plate slot.

    Backpacks would be great. They should have around five to ten slots that you can fill with items

    How about this

     

    How the Item works:

    Backpacks take up the chestpiece slot in your inventory, and you can only hold one at a time. It also can hold other backpacks, similar to the shulker box. The backpack adds one new row, same size as the other rows, to the inventory, signified by the new row being a different color. It would have the same durability as leather, being made of it. Backpacks can be dyed and renamed, the dye changing the color of the new rows. Backpacks cannot be stacked, at all. Backpacks can be stored in chests, and there can be multiple in one chest. The backpack would keep all stored items inside it if unequipped.

    Crafting & Finding:

    The crafting recipe would require 1 iron, 6 leather, and 2 string. It can also rarely be found on zombies with armor and/or weapons, at low durability. Backpacks found on zombies have a low chance of having Expanding, an enchantment covered below.

    Enchantments:

    The backpack wouldn't be able to be enchanted, save for unbreaking, and one new enchantment, Expanding. Expanding would have 2 levels, and can only be applied to the backpack. Each level would add a new row, I adding one, II adding two. A backpack with Expanding II would double a players inventory.

    Finding the new enchantment:

    Expanding would only be found as level one, level two needing to be crafted at an anvil. The book itself could be found in Dungeons, Strongholds, and as a extremely rare librarian trade, costing 20 emeralds at a normal librarian, and 10 at a cured one.

    Breaking:

    The backpack breaking would be similar to the elytra, as the texture would change to being tattered. All empty slots would become unable to be filled until it is repaired, and the player would occasionally "leak" items, as every 5-7 minutes, the player would drop a random item, or 2-5% of a stack of items,  from the backpack, signaled by a ripping sound.

    Instead of a backpack, perhaps a satchel. You would keep it in your offhand, and it would store 9 or so items. It would make less people always have a shield on hand, and a nice way to balance the EARLY GAME "i need more space" problem without making a house. It would promote a nomadic play style, and encourage early game hunting for wool or leather to craft it. Perhaps they could spawn in dungeon chests with a bit of extra rare loot in them, giving more reason to plunder through mineshafts, pillager outposts, and the such.

    Ich wären begeistert, wenn der Rucksack ein wenig größer wäre.

    Whenever I play survival, It’s all good until I’ve ran out of inventory space. It’s really annoying. Shulker boxes are a thing yes, but the only way to get them is the end, if I’m just starting out a Minecraft world, there’s no way I can obtain that item so quickly. I suggest added a backpack that is functional, you’ll be able to place it down or put it on your character. It’s what I’ve needed for a while now.

    I could see how this could be useful, but I don't support it. You see, the main arguement is that Early Game peeps need portable storage. My arguement is exactly that reason, Early-Game people wont be carrying stacks of supplies for building. By the time they do make mass farms or make multiple stacks of wood that are too much to carry, they probably have gotten diamonds by then. I feel this would be not exactly that useful in the long run.

    We need backpacks for more storage on hand in stead of using shulker box’s that fill up our inventory backpacks won’t just be for storage they can also be cool collectable items with amazing prints and designs!!

    I think backpacks should work like shulkers, and be simple to make (leather + whatever) . But they should have less storage space than shulkers and should not be able to put a backpack inside a backpack like you can with shulkers. That way theres a difference between the two and shulkers are still the better option for storage late game. But a backpack would aid the player early-mid game

    I like the idea of a backpack in early game but with a smaller inventory space. Maybe 10 extra spaces. And it would be accessible from your normal inventory menu rather than separate like a chest.

    Basically expand your regular inventory by a small amount. Perhaps different size backpacks depending on material. Maybe end game backpacks that require items from the end to double your regular inventory space. Leather backpacks could be 5 extra spaces.

    Please mojang introduce backpacks and other things from the others (arrow quiver, portable beacon, portable crafting tables, ...)

    Do it so that it has more armor slots in the inventory and so you can carry a backpack or an Elytra maybe also an arrow quiver (Giving infinit arrows) over armor and the backpack doubles the inventory

    MacchuPicchu96 You have to go to the end for a shulker box. Backpacks should be something you could simply make with leather or something. And maybe you'd put it in a special slot and it would expand your inventory instead of having you place it down. Or maybe both?
