    The backpack would be useful because I hope it functions like backpacks in mods which I believe would be better than a shulker box

    Something definitely must be done about early game inventory without making ender chests/shulker boxes irrelevant.. Inventory size was set in stone when there were much, much fewer items in the game.

    What I'd like to see is a bag that effectively triples stack size for one item. Craft a bag, then one item in it to target that item (exact matches only.) The capacity of the bag is its durability.

    Hold the bag in main hand or offhand to automatically pick up and store the target item until the bag is full. Use the bag (right-click) to remove 1 item. Bows/crossbows can automatically draw from a bag (quiver) of arrows.

    Because the bag has durability, there could potentially be attacks that reduce durability, causing items to be lost. For example, being on fire may drop the durability of all bags carried by 1 every time a player takes damage.

    If backpacks were to be added, I suggest a weight feature, that gradually increases the more items and the higher the stacks you put inside the bag. An empty bag only slows you down a bit, whilst a full bag would probably be like Slowness 2. I also suggest that horse leather is added to the game, and it is stronger than cow leather in terms of durability. All backpacks should only have 9 slots of space, as to not overthrow Shulker Boxes as the best inventory expander. Agreeing with Issak Plays15's idea, I think that the backpack's straps should wear sometimes, and you will need to repair it every so often.

    i like the idea of backpacks and i thought that there should be a slot just for them but that is just an idea

    It would be nice and convenient to open it at once instead of the Sherlock box

    I think that Shulker box is hard to find, so a backpack could be a great idea.

    Eu acho que um baú Shulker é muito difícil de ser encontrado, por isso a mochila poderia ser interessante.

    In my opinion, if backpacks were added to the game, they should not be craftable, such as saddles, they could be obtained as a rare loot within dungeons, from fishing, or as a leatherworker trade.
    They would add 3 extra slots to the player's inventory and could be expanded in a crafting table when surrounded with leather, for each expansion 3 slots would be added and the maximum capacity of the backpack would be 9.
    The slots are only acessable when the backpack is on the player's chest slot.
    Shulker boxes could be placed within backpacks for the item to be useful even during the lategame.
    You can fastly change backpacks from your chest by right-clicking another from your hotbar.
    Backpacks would be dyable such as leather armor.
    And lastly if filled with ammonition for ranged weapons, whenever you shoot, the items in your backpack are choosen first, bringing back a little of the quiver's functionality.

    I love the idea of backpacks, Especially while your mining and you can carry all those ores and cobblestone and what not, backpacks would be amazing to have!

    Ok. So here are my thoughts
    1)shipper boxes a super late game and they don’t really help you if you just need that last little bit of iron.
    2)I think backpacks would be great early game especially if you plan on traveling or going on large resource gathering sessions.
    3) the backpack would be great for aesthetic reasons
    4) the back pack shouldn’t be 2 over powered (maybe on add and extra row to your inventory space)
    5)maybe add shulker boxes to upgrade the backpack and have separate tabs of inv space?

    Great idea! I've always wanted something like this in Minecraft BE.

    @MacchuPicchu96 I agree, Shulker Boxes are very hard to get, though. I would like something easy to obtain/craft that you can dye (Oh I just remembered you can dye Shulker Boxes. XD).

    I guess you could use shulker boxes in a crafting recipe with leather, (and maybe a bit of iron or string) to create an inventory extension.

    Rather than how shulker boxes are a virtual portable secondary inventory where you have to place down to use, this backpack could be similar to the elytra, as the elytra takes up the chestplate slot, and the backpack can also do this, your inventory when opened with "e" will probably be the size of a large chest or just smaller. I personally don't mind sacrificing a chestplate slot for elytra, so why not add another thing that can use that slot for?

    After all the likely hood of having both armour and elytra on at the same time is A LOT LOWER now that the 10th Anniversary Teaser image has been confirmed as a mistake.

    The GUI for accessing the backpack doesn't even have to be an enlargement of the original inventory space, it could have tabs like in creative mode or pocket edition.

    I made a quick Concept Image to show what I mean:

    "B"- Represents the backpack, as I have no idea what it will eventually look like if one were to be made.

    I think after the shulker box is crafted into a backpack, it should substitute its status as a block into an item, which can no longer be placed on the ground, but, you can put it on an armour stand.

    Lol has anyone ever used images on a thread before? I'm afraid I might stand out too much (^^;

    EDIT: Reading a lot more comments, I've thought of very similar things to what other people have, I want to be clear, no I don't want all credit to go to me, after all, this is a community ;) although I don't mind allowing my image to be the base of eveyone's ideas put together.

    yes would like to see some kind of backpacks.

    i dont want to have to always go to end world to get shulker boxes.

    i like adventuring around the world.

    finding mineshafts and jungles and ect.

    going to end world isnt one of my main adjectives.

    i like playing surival and building at same time. getting to shulker boxes takes away from

    adventure time.

    Need more inventory space

    What people do not seem to understand about backpacks vs. shulker boxes is that backpacks would function more as extra inventory space rather then needing to place down an inventory to access it. Shulker boxes are useful for bulk item transfer such as through sending them into item streams, hoppers, and dispensers/droppers.

    Specifically with backpacks they might be a separate tab in your inventory like other mods do, similar to the creative mode inventory.

    Shulker boxes are late game items, we need an early game inventory expansion

    As is, there is just too many blocks and tools in the game to reasonably manage your inventory in the early game. Sure we have Shulker Boxes, but those are a pretty late game item and are more for large scale projects and journeys than simple mining expeditions. All the different wood types and stone types and new stairs/slabs, some kind of upgrade to the Inventory system is long overdue. Some ideas I have:

    Backpack, adds 18 spaces to the Inventory

    Satchel, adds 9 spaces to the Inventory

    Quiver, adds four slots that can only hold Arrows

    Potion Belt, adds five slots that can only hold Potions

    Tool belt, adds three slots to the Hotbar that can only hold Tools

    Each of those items would be a one time permanent upgrade. Adding all of them may be a bit too OP, but one or two of them would help the current Inventory system a lot.

    I think the inventory space of a player currently is far to large. Perhaps reducing the player inventory space, thereby making a backpack "more useful" but not making shulker boxes any less so.

    I suggest adding a turtle backpack. It would be made of one lime shulker box and 8 pieces of turtle shell. The backpack would be worn in the armor slot (or back slot if they ever add it). After putting it on, a tab would appear in the inventory that would change the top panel from the armor view to the contents of the backpack, equal to the player's team. The player can only wear one backpack at a time and cannot put the backpack in the backpack. Opening the backpack requires putting it on. In addition, a turtle's backpack would give total defense against back attacks (turtle's shell).

    Would be great if made with 3 leather on top, surrounding a chest, 2 string east/west of the chest, and one bucket one bucket on bottom. If the Backpack is attached to a tripwire hook players could empty the filled bucket texture carefully(integrated into the backpack) into another empty bucket, or empty bottles

    I would not mind to have the option of having an early game backpack option. I know we have the shulker boxes but you tend to get those when you visit the end. I think having a backpack would be helpful especially when you are doing a lot of branch mining during the early game for all of the rare ores ;).

    frankly, if they will add backpacks then it will be quite an ambitious feature. We do have Shulker boxes. But, the backpacks could act differently than what I’ve mentioned about shulker boxes.

    First off, backpack will use chest slot and can store a minimum amount of slots, like 5 for example. The cost. Well, worry about it later.

    anyways. If ur backpack has stuff in it and unequip it, then all stuff will basically just falls on the ground...

    and yeah, that is it...

    I think backpacks are a great idea! But it will need to be balanced. You put the backpack in the backpack slot, next to the offhand slot. The backpack should give you an extra 9 inventory slots. You can have multiple different backpacks in different colors. Once you take your backpack off you lose your slots but your stuff stays in the backpack. You can put shulker boxes in backpacks, but you can’t put backpacks in backpacks. I think that’s a balanced way to have backpacks without making it over powered.
