    Shulker boxes fulfill the need for bakcbacks but they take a very long time into the game to get. I think backpacks should be added and crafted just out of leather and maybe an iron ingot. They should have no more than an extra hotbar worth of space otherwise theyd be too op.

    Backpacks should be like an early-game pseudo-shulker box. Only 6 rows of storage, and must replace the chest plate to be opened.

    I honestly feel backpacks are just replicating an ender chest.

    The backpack is a neat idea because we can have more space for our inventory.

    Good idea, but definitely needs to be improved.

    1: Backpacks have to be worn on your chest slot so that you have to give up some armor or your elytra.

    2: Backpacks can only hold up to maybe 6 items and these slots should appear on the side of your inventory as for easy access and to not replace shulker boxes.

    3: Backpacks can hold anything to heavy, they are just leather sacks designed for carrying small items ya know! “Heavy” items may include gold, iron, or netherite.

    If the backpack was added, these things should be added along with it to help keep them from replacing shulker boxes since they would likely be a very early game item. I hope this helps!

    I think the idea of backpacks is very bad. If it is obtained quickly, the idea gets even worse, as it would unbalance the game's ecosystem (which is good, but fragile). But there is a way to resolve this.

    The player, in the game, always starts with 36 empty slots in the inventory, which can be occupied with blocks, weapons and many other things. But what if he started with just nine slots?

    thus, he would need to build something (backpack) to have the 36 slots in the inventory!

    9ne benefit of this is for it to enable infinite items or blocks in your inventory to be stacked.

    Nice idea, but don't you think the addition of Shulker Boxes already took that spot?

    Having a backpack could be a very good idea.

    The crafting recipe could be a chest in four leather, or completely surrounded.

    It can only hold 8 items as a backpack can’t realistically carry a massive amount of stuff without ripping. You can dye the bag so it has a special color. You could also maybe put a pattern on it. The item can be loaded from the inventory but you can also set it down. It could look a bit like a trunk suitcase while on the ground or something.

    Also what if the backpack can only hold certain kinds of items, like you would need to add ice to it to hold food, a bit like a cooler. Just a random idea that could help make it less op.

    This backpack would be made of leather and mud and would have a shape similar to a flat chest.

    Benefits:

    > The player would have 20 more empty spaces to fill.
    > The transfer between houses will be faster.

    Disadvantages:

    > The player loses points from the food bar 5 times faster, as he will have more weight on his back.
    > If the food bar has only 7 "shank" (or 14 points) of food bar, he will no longer be able to run.
    > In place of the armor plate or elytra, we would have the backpack.

    This would be amazing to have for an early game, or just to use so I don’t have to fix my shulker box storage in my worlds, I could be able to just craft some of these and take them on the go. These would be such great items to use, early and late game. I really don’t think they defeat the purpose of the shulker box, but more so add a rival, or counterpart.

    It would just be a shulker box upgrade, but I think it's a great idea if it is possible to directly open it in the inventory.

    I think this should be added but have less inventory storage than a chest, and buff the shulker box storage massively

    Se adicionarem o item, acho que será meio que um "inventário a mais" para o seu jogo pois há muitas coisas no meio da aventura que você não consegue pegar por falta de espaço. +1 voto

    In my opinion, shulker boxes are more than enough to any minecraft player, though as other people said, it's for late game (after you beat the ender dragon), but if you were to make a backback with the same size as a shulker box, that would pretty much render the shulker box useless, And as a way to balance that, you could make the size of the backback smaller than a shulker box (maybe about one additional row to your inventory is enough). I also think upgrading your backpack would still render the shulker boxes useless so that's why I don't agree with that (maybe at least having one upgrade that adds one more row).

    Shulker boxers are basically a backpack but end game/late game.
    I think some kind of cheaper (smaller sized inventory storage) for early game backpack made from leather or something?

    Backpack would be good for early game.
    I suggest that backpack only have 12 extra space to make shulker box a needed thing late game.

    I love this idea, as its an extension of shulker boxes with added functionality. A few implementations ideas to add:
    Crafted with leather and a chest, and takes up your chest slot.

    1) This implements the trade-off that was agreed upon by devs for the elytra implementation, so we know that its a fair trade to add a feature if you remove your chestplate.

    2) It's an early game trade-off to the chestplate, but you get this way earlier in the game, which I don't think makes it OP, and here's why: 

    • You don't have access to ender chests or shulker boxes yet, so this gives us more space without lugging a llama or mule around with you.
    • I feel that giving you access to this in early game is a fair trade-off in your chest slot, as EACH individual armor slot is MUCH more important when you have leather/iron armor. By the time you get the elytra, you've been able to defeat the dragon (in most cases) so the late game loss of a single piece of armor isn't NEARLY as big of a loss of a chestplate in the early game, as you're likely to have diamond armor/tools, enchantments and potions by now.

    Edit: My thoughts on crafting are to follow the trend of the shulker, by fashioning leather around a chest (1 chest, 8 leather), in the same way that we crack a shulker in half, and shove a chest inside it.

    It should hold like 20 items but every item makes you slower.

    I know that there are shulker boxes but those are hard to get and inventories are small. Backpacks could be a second inventory that you can wear in the chestplate area.

    What if the Backpack literally added more inventory space instead of having it's own separate UI. That way it wouldn't defeat the purpose of a Shulker Box. The backpack would a one or two bars of storage to your inventory, but at the cost of taking up your off hand slot (Where your shield would go)

    A backpack is a good idea. We already have a shulker box but if you start a survival you just don’t have the items to make one so if it is a basic recipe it’s a good idea 😁👍

    I think a backpack should be an early game form of a shulker box adding an additional 12 or so slots and it takes up the chest plate slot, if they are removed from the armor slot all items in the backpack fall on the ground. These should be upgradable up to a netherite variant that doubles your inventory like a diamond variant but also provides the Defence of an iron chestplate still carrying a trade off of more storage, more protection or flight. Backpacks should be enchantable with the same enchantments as a chestplate.

    Stop comparing backpacks and shulker boxes first of all. Second, like EVERYONE else is saying this should be an early accessible item with nine slots for inventory space. Its worth putting it in the game plus it will increase exploring at an early stage. I rest my case.

    I feel that there should be backpacks and you could basically combine them on an anvil to upgrade them.Even though if Shulker boxes are a late game item; there should still be back packs
