    I think backpack, if added, should:

    -only give few slots (like 9),and not 27

    -be only accesible when worn on chestplate/elytra slot

    This would make them

    -useful, because they wouldn't require the player to stop

    -early-game, because late game players with shulker boxes would choose elytra instead

    -not too overpowered, because wearing them would sacrifice some armor and they would only allow for slightly higher number of items carried

    Also pouches, sword sheaths and quivers,like to carry the sword you need a sheath, you could make the game harder this way.

    I for one wanted "Backpack" and "pockets" to be ENCHANTMENTS for Chestplate and Leggings respectively.

    • Backpack
      Possible Levels: I, II, III
      Level I: 3 extra inventory spaces in a separate grid to the right of the main inventory.
      Level II: 6 extra inventory spaces in a separate grid to the right of the main inventory.
      Level III: 9 extra inventory spaces in a separate grid to the right of the main inventory.
      The completed grid would be a 3x3 square, each level adding 1 column.
    • Pockets:
      Possible Levels: I, II
      Level I: 2 extra inventory spaces in a separate grid to the right of the hotbar
      Level II: 4 extra inventory spaces in a separate grid to the right of the hotbar
      The completed grid would be 2x2 square, each level adding 1 column

    If you had items in your backpack/pockets storage spaces and you take the armor off/the armor breaks, I would presume that the items drop.

    This addition would be great since new updates are bringing us more items and we need a new way to organize or inventory. Also a cool addition to add a purpose to all the items we carry and a new stylish look at our skins! Amazing suggestion and it's about time. :)

    Lack of more inventory slots has bugged me for years. They keep adding new items but no better way to manage them.

    Shulker boxes and ender chests are clunky alternatives that you constantly have to put in and out of your inventory to access. Donkeys and llamas are slow and bulky.

    I imagine backpacks as a quality of life improvement for advanced players so they don't have to waste time managing inventory. For me it's about having to click a few less menial buttons hundreds of time in a play session to access your items.

    Backpacks should of course be harder to get than shulker boxes since they would be an upgrade to them. Each should have at least 27 slots and there should be a limit to how many you can have at once. Perhaps a special chest enchant would allow attaching a shulker box to a chestpiece so you can access it alongside your inventory.

    Backpacks would be a great idea. It would be an ideal tool to help you when you are traveling. With a backpack, you can bring all your stuff with you.

    The backpack would either take up the torso slot for armor, or have an entirely new slot next to the torso slot for items to wear over your armor. 

    It could be crafted with 8 leather. 

    It would allow you to have an extra 9 slots of inventory space and could possibly be upgraded later on to a different tier (3 tiers in total) to add 9 more slots each time.

    -It would not defeat the purpose of a shulker, or replace a shulker by any means because this would be an early game tool. Also, shulkers are only obtainable after you defeat the ender dragon so this would be a good tool for newer players who are traveling long distances.

    My ideas on how backpacks could be implemented:

    1. Could be crafted with Ravager Hides. This would give the ravagers a desirable loot as well as making the backpack more of a rarity, due to the spawn rate of Pillager patrols and the high level of Ravager combat difficulty
    2. Would occupy the Chestplate slot. 
    3. Could have an upgrade system similar to that of maps (i.e. Level 0/4) in place of paper, you would use Ravager Hides. 
    4. Dyable
    5. Can hold shulker boxes

    Here's how I think it could be crafted: (black ink in place of Ravager Hides)

    While this recipe would allow players to craft multiple backpacks using fewer Ravager Hides than would be necessary for upgrading the backpack to higher levels, I feel this system is still balanced. If players want to wear multiple backpack inventories at one time, then they can spend the extra 3 Ravager hides to do so. Giving the player the option of multiple low-level backpacks or fewer higher level backpacks.

    I've made a mockup of what I think the gui could be below.

    Here, the backpack is depicted at Level 3/4, having 4 tabs and 84 extra slots (The maxed backpack would have 5 tabs and 105 slots)

    Players could also give each tab an item to label each section of the backpack (potentially at the bottom of the gui)

    This mockup was the first step towards making a mod, but I would rather have the MOJANG team make it. I did my best to keep the design balanced as well as keeping in mind how it would fit Minecraft's gameplay.

    Shulker boxes already serve this purpose, and are late game for a reason. Inventory management is part of the challenge of the game.

    This is a good idea and the existance of shulker boxes doesn't make up for this.they are end game items and are really hard to obtain. So for backpacks to work.
    They work as a expansion to your inventory.
    They take up an armour slot or maybe a new slot only for backpacks?
    They can't be crafted and are found in dungeon chests, so you have to explore.
    You can't put them on ground and store items.you have to have it in your inventory.
    As soon as you take them off, all items drop.
    They have a limit of 18 slots
    This would be a really great addition to the early game as we all know, picking up all your items from first days is the worst experience ever. And to most people in this thread, no they won't replace shulker boxes and won't feel like modded Minecraft, they will simply work as an expansion to your inventory that can't store item while being placed on the ground. The concept of an ore more powerful than diamond was deemed pretty modded but here we are, we have to at least give this idea a chance. How do we know it feels like modded when we know that many modded features(or modded resembling features) that made into Minecraft were a great addition.

    I keep seeing mention of shulker boxes but I am nowhere near that level for one of those.  A backpack would be so wonderful to have when adventuring - I feel like weapons, food and some basic supplies alone takes up half of your inventory and I love the donkeys with a chest on their back but sometimes in caves it is just not practical!

    Shulker Chests already have a functionality similar to a backpack, except you have to place it to access its inventory.

    If Minecraft were to add backpacks, they could be accessed by right clicking while holding it, but only limited at nine slots of storage. It would be a good early game solution for expanding inventory but shulker chests may still be a better investment in the endgame.

    I think backpacks should be easy crafting of some amount of leather and maybe string and adds 3 to 6 spaces of inventory right next to the regular inventory on the right, though it’s a trade off because it takes up the chest slot so you can’t use elytra or chest plate, and if you remove it from the chest slot, all the items drop so you can’t just keep it in the inventory. Also you could craft with extra leather up to two pockets for 2 extra slots, or you could make it just the without pockets. Picture added, sry for sloppyness

    In addition to backpacks, a type of cargo cart to carry chests would be VERY useful !!

    We have shulker boxes. An easier way to implement it would be letting you put it in your chestplate slot.

    I don't know... Why? But I think it would be pretty cool if your inventory is full and you can take a backpack. Idk but I think it would be ok

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

    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.

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

    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.

    I think it should be like the elytra where you have to sacrifice your chest plate for more inventory

    Backpacks is something a lot of people want in the game, especially with a cave update. However, they should not be over powered and come at a small cost.

     

    1. Backpacks cannot be craftable - They should be treated similarly to saddles; either found in loot chests, fished up, or traded with villagers (leather workers specifically).

     

    2. They would only have 9 slots of inventory - This makes it nice for just that bit of extra storage in the early game for say mining, but not be enough to replace everyone's desire of shulker boxes making shulker boxes still an end game reward.

     

    3. Chest plates would not be wearable while wearing a backpack -  Having a backpack should have a cost if a player wants one. That cost being, you cannot wear a chest plate if you have a backpack on. This gives the player a choice, extra armor for protection? Or extra storage to hold more stuff?

     

    4. Can they be placed in your inventory if they have items in them? - No, because this would make them essentially tiny shulker boxes and would technically replace the purpose of shulker boxes as moveable storage. If you want to take the items out of the backpack, you have to remove them yourself. This also means you can only have one backpack on you at a time.

    I really like the idea of a backpack being placed in the chest-plate slot. They definitely shouldn't be able to transport as much stuff as a shulker box. Maybe it would add an extra nine slots to the player inventory. This is would be great for builders because there are so many blocks, stairs, slabs, etc., in the game to detail builds with and the player inventory can't hold all of them.

    I think that is a great idea! People are saying Shulker boxes are basically backpacks, but that's not until super late in the game. With that in mind, a backpack could be created early game. Maybe crafted with leather and a chest?

    like in the adventurer back pack mod you could store liquids and have a sleeping bag and crafting table

    I don't know if I've said this before or if anyone else has mentioned this but I think the backpack should only have 9 slots of inventory space. It would be balanced and wouldn't be as overpowered as shulker boxes.
