    I think this is a great idea but the backpack could come with some disadvantages suck as a slowness effect depending on how much is in the bag

    I think it would be really cool that backpacks would give u like 2-3 columns of extra inventory space. When its removed from the player's back (make a new player slot for backpacks like with shields) it keeps all the items but other then the shulker box its accessible in the inventory and cant be placed down + I think it would be really cool if the backpack is upgradeable/costumizable like u can put attach a workbench on it, which makes it a portable workbench and storage space, and u can put a jukebox on it, which makes it like a boombox/headphones for when ur out adventuring. Then lastly make it so that u can color your backpack! The backpack should be created with leather, iron and a chest, to dye it put the backpack with ur choice of dye in the crafting bench, same goes for upgrading, u want the workbench or jukebox, put it together in a workbench with the backpack. This would be a really cool addition and a gamechanger.

    Would make shulker boxes completely pointless. Being able to manage an inventory with limited space is one of the challenges of the game.

    That's a great idea But they better make it a lot more easier than the nether chests and the new thing whatever it's called in the end city.

    I say ok, but only one 1x9 row of items.require a diamond for the buckle since it has to carry a lot of heavy things, and it takes up your chestplate space, so you can wear a chestplate and the backpack, similar to the elytra.

    Also Shulker boxes are late game items, it would be great to have something in early game to expamd your inventory and also not have to place it down every time you open it.

    Awesome idea!

    I think that in order to make them different from shulker blocks, you should be able to wear them on your back, and have a limited storage. You can only have one bag in your inventory at a given time, and you can’t put bags inside bags. That way you will have to go to the end and get shulkers.

    Backpacks should be a wearable early game variant of the shulker boxes. It should have less slots so it won't outshine the shulker boxes.

    But what if you put backpacks in shulker boxes then shulker boxes in ender chest? That would be unbalanced and it would be infinite storage

    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.

    Make the backpack limited like the saddle bags on a donkey, only having maybe half an inventory worth of space. Also make it an equipable item like the offhand for the shield or torches, except it would have its own slot of course. This way a player can only use one backpack.

    what if there was a backpack slot above the shield slot...where you could place things like a quiver to store your arrows, or elytra wings, freeing up your chestplate slot for your diamond armor

    or a backpack that gives you some extra inventory space

    I don't like this idea.
    We already have shulker boxes that have that purpose.
    Making backpacks as an "early game item" would defeat the purpose of exploring the end cities to find shulkers and get their shells. Shulker boxes are MEANT to be a late game item, and are meant to be that valuable.
    As stated, adding backpacks would make The End only usefull for mining obsidian and getting an elytra.

    well we need a backpack as an expansion to normal inventory like double size or less

    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).

    i think this would be a great idea! i think you should have a slot next to wear you would put the shield, and then you can wear you backpack !!! i also think this should consist of: string, leather, and ONE gold because gold is kinda useless and a backpack would be something VERY helpful !!!!

    I'm only imagining the safest way of introducing this into the game would be to mix leather with the shulker box to create the backpack which must be worn instead of a chest plate but can either increase the slots in the inventory directly or add a new button in the inventory next to the recipe button that shows you your backpack storage slots. 

    This way there is a trade-off for having more inventory space, removing your chest plate and still having to have a shulkerbox for the item.

    the way it could work is making the craft recipe 8 lether and a chest in the middle, it would give between 10 and 20 slots, would be nice since the sulker boxs are an end game thing

    Yea i understand about shulker boxes but u have to go and kill ender but wouldn't it make more sence to like make the leather worker make it and you can buy it from him so that would make it not so simple to make andit would be a beginner item not a i finally killed ender now i get a shulker box, also it shouldn't have too many open slot so that it would not make it overpowered as described earlier.

    It could be worn on the chestplate slot to differentiate it from the skillet box. And depending on what is in it it could give you different levels of slowness.

    No, Mojang already implemented Shulker Boxes as a response to players who wanted backpacks. Backpacks would break the Minecraft feel, anyways.

    It's a good idea in my opinion. Shulkerboxes are only to get in the end game though and you have to travel the end. As in early game, it is currently not possible to archive more inventory space. Bagpacks would solve the problem! I would think of Wool, Leither and Wood for a crafting recipe, or something like that.

    Shulker boxes are a great way to store items and act like a backpack, but it a late game item because you need to kill the endear dragon to access it but the backpack could be a early game. The storage would have to be smaller than a shulker box because it would be OP as a early game item you would get by storage means I was thinking the space of a donkey with a chest attached to it would be a perfect size.

    To ensure that they are not the same as shulkerboxes, the heavier the backpack, the slower you walk

    It should be made of leather and chest or shulker box.
