    You could make it with a shulker box and maybe some string and leather

    Shulker boxes and ender chests are expensive less experienced player but for me they work.

    I love this idea. Having a backack makes it more better for traveling. When using a backpack it could be used for extra storage. For example lets say a player was to use a backpack for mining it wouldve given the player more storage to keep on mining. This would give the player more space but more capacity to hold items

    I love the idea of having a portable expandable inventory you can carry with you without having to place it down before getting the stuff you need out.

    Quedaría bien como si tuvieras una coraza donde pudieras equipar tu mochila y la pudieras abrir con una tecla, así solo sería 1 y no estaría tan op,además casi nadie juega después de matar al dragón, así que los shulkers son solo usado para los jugadores más competitivos y no por los más novatos o casuales

    i think back packs should be added, But i think it should only give you 1 hotbar worth of extra space. otherwise it would be really overpowered and shulker boxes would be forgotten

    I'd like backpacks, made of shulkers boxes and other things, the difference is that u could use them in your inventory, without placing them in the floor, but u couldn't placing them on the floor and dispensers can't place them.

    If you break a shulker box, everything stays inside

    Backpacks would be very useful, since Ender Chest and Shulker Boxes is impossible to craft until later in the game.

    Adding a backpack would remove the amazing feeling when you "unlock" the ender chest and then the shulker box. These are at certain stages of the game and it should stay that way.

    Possibly with a shulker box in the recipe- that way it is more convenient then a shulker box but is still challenging to get

    I think that backpacks should be limited to specific items like weapons,tools,torches,food and arrows if ever implemented in the game just to keep it balanced but that's just my grain of salt 🐸👌🏻

    Ok, everybody who is saying that shulker boxes are already backpacks, that obviously would not be true. We are not simply looking for more inventory space, we are looking for more quick access inventory. Shulker boxes are only found in the end and you have to place them in order to get the stuff out of them, this is not quick access inventory. Also for all of those who think that shulker boxes are backpacks, therefore we dont need backpacks, do you also think that we dont need trapped chests, ender chest, and shulker boxes? Because, they are only variants of the original chest. You may say that those are all different with different purposes, as would the backpack have a different purpose than a shulker box. The backpacks could also have a liquid storage spot where you can dump up to, maybe, three buckets of liquid like waterl or lava so that you need only to carry one bucket. They could either be craftable or maybe only available through fishing leathersmith chest/trading or other loot chest like a saddle. All of those people who want only their precious shulker boxes, please dont ruin it for the rest of us who want to better the game. When backpacks are added you don't have to use them, but we would like the ability to have a larger inventory, and more possibilities to create.

    I read some of the comments and I saw good ideas, but I want to add some tweaks on the backpack being an expansion to be used when placed in chest plate slot.

    1- For backpacks to expand your inventory they must be in chest plate slot. (as suggested before)
    2- backpacks can only be in off hand slot if they are not in chest plate slot. So you can only hold it with your hand or wear it on your back to expand your inventory. And it keeps the items inside even if it is in the off hand. But the items are only accessible when the backpack is in the chest plate slot.
    3- items with inventory like chests and shulkers can not be placed inside the backpack. And backpacks can not be stored in other chests, shulkers, etc...
    4- backpacks can be displayed on armor stands and they keep their items inside.

    How much will a backpack expand an inventory?
    I think 9 or 18 slots is nice. What is better though is having both options somehow. Like when you put a chest on Llamas, each Llama will have different number of slots. Maybe you can enchant it to give more slots.

    Crafting recipe?
    I don’t mind if it is not craftable and can only be found displayed on an armor stand somewhere in a structure in the overworld.

    In summary I think backpacks shouldn’t be like shulkers in which you can store a lot of shulkers in your inventory or enderchest, but they should keep their items in all the time. Also players shouldn’t be able to access multiple backpacks inventory at the same time.

    Backpacks would help with resources gathering and they would have there own slot and u have to place it to access it's inventory

    Back packs would be a amazing add on I think they should have 100 new spaces and one you take them off every thing stays in them and you can open they back up and find all your stuff there so whenever you leave you have extra space and can adventure with out woreing about space and can bring back a lot of stuff you need!!!,

    "Backpacks" should just upgrade inventory space. Inventory space is way too small now with sooo many new blocks being implemented with every new update.

    You could maybe have a special offhand for equipping the backpack. For balance it would be reasonably difficult to craft, with iron, leather and string. It would directly add new slots into the inventory (6?) and when unequipped drops all items onto the ground. Could not be used like a shulker box, as in you could store it in an Ender chest and keep all the items inside it.

    I think that backpacks should expand the inventory by 1-3 rows, so that we can fit in more items. There could be different tiers, just like armor, that expand your inventory by different amounts. and to keep it balanced, you can only have one backpack in your inventory at once, and it can only go in a new slot, above the offhand, so you can't fit multiple in your inventory, as it could be very overpowered.

    I like the idea however it would take away the purpose of shulker boxes so maybe make it to where you can upgrade the shulker box to have more storage

    Nowadays you would have much more different types of item added, even in early games. It will become more difficult to arrange your inventory. (Especially in the future where "cave update" comes along with other overworld aspects.)

    *So backpacks are starting to become more & more necessary. This idea isn't overpowered but an early game essential (Gotta love the convenience as well). Just 3x3 item slots is perfect enough.

    -This will NOT make shulker boxes useless as in the late game but rather coexists more with backpacks. The backpacks should be the one inside a shulker boxes.

     

    Ender chest inside > shulker boxes inside > backpacks. (Personally I don't build a base in my world, I just like to just adventure and loot around the world. :)

    I think backpacks should make your inventory bigger and there could be different types of backpacks that make your inventory different sizes

    I like the idea, but if your going to do this you got to have a side effect for it like the more you put in n it you walk a bit lower

    Backpacks should take up the chest plate spot, as to provide a downside compared to shulker boxes

    The argument that backpacks would make shulker boxes obsolete is flawed for one reason: use them both.

    If the backpack has 9 or so slots, that's 9 more shulker boxes, and 243 more slots! That's 15,552 more items capable of being carried!

    Adding an entirely new backpack item sounds unnecessary when shulker boxes already exist. Instead, I think that shulker shells should occasionally appear in naturally generated chests. This would make it possible to craft shulker boxes earlier in the game and it would give the chests in structures more exciting loot.

    I agree cause even though we have shulker boxes those are hard to get. So like we can make backpacks out of leather

    This is better than shulker boxes because you don’t have to place them and it saves space for other stuff because you wear them

    I think having backpacks would be a great thing to be implemented,because in the early stages of your minecraft gameplay,while mining,exploring,your inventory gets filled up really quick and we need a way to be able to store more items with us,thus not having to wait to get to the End and make shulcker boxes.Also I think that backpack should be easily craftable just a few piece of items dropped by mobs and entitys,such as string and leather to make a leather backpack.Also being able to make even bigger backpacks by combining two leather backpacks(or any kind of backpack),and get a bigger one with more slots to store your items in.
