Backpacks Mod for Minecraft 1.17.1/1.16.5/1.15.2/1.14.4

Have you ever been out mining, cutting wood or killing monsters in Minecraft and run out of inventory space? It happens to everyone who plays the game, sooner or later, and it’s one of the most frustrating experiences Minecraft has to offer. The Backpacks mod does away with this problem by allowing players to craft and carry backpacks, each of which has as much room as the player’s inventory, or even more! This significantly increases the player’s carrying capacity, from 27 items or stacks of items to a whopping 27×27, seeing as every inventory slot could theoretically contain a backpack. That’s 729 slots!


There are specialty backpacks as well. Some use an alternate form of leather to make backpacks with up to 54 slots. You can even craft an Ender backpack, using an enderchest, to have a link back to your enderchest at home which is much easier to carry around and use than the chest would be. The Backpacks mod is about more than just saving space – it allows players to do more with the space they have. By making Minecraft more efficient in general, this mod helps the game to run more smoothly and forces the player to go home after a good haul far less often.

How to install Backpacks Mod?

  1. Install Forge if you haven’t done it yet!
  2. Download backpacks from the download section.
  3. Put the zip in your mods folder, but don’t extract it! Leave the zip as it!

  1. Found a bug with the 1.8 version. If you change the colour of a bag while it has items inside the game crashes.

  2. 1.8 crashes when I try to use the “Big Backpack”. Small backpack works fine, with the exception of the “B” key not actually opening the pack. I have to equip it to a quick slot and use it, which limits me to only that many bags.

    Could be a really useful mod, if all the bugs are fixed.

  3. I haven’t had a single issue with this mod so far. You can wear the backpack by holding Shift+B to open interface. Place your bag in the slot at the top to wear it. Plus you can add items to it that you want the bag to auto store, for example: diamonds, ore, etc. You can also name your bags, similar to using a nametag item, by holding Shift and Right Clicking.

  4. Actually if ur using different mods you need to make sure that the controls are not being used. eg the shift b will not work if ur using mods with waypoints as b is the default setting for this. So far the bug that i see is the middle bags where it doesnt really show the actual look lol and cannot really see the bag in my back but those are minor. love this mod

  5. i just made a server ( invites only ) and i wanted to make a backpack but when i am in the crafting table and put the cow hides on the right places i see backpacks but when i try to pick it up out of the crafting table he put it back in O.o ??? someone help

  6. I ve got a problem.I made a crafting bagpack and i cant put my items which i craft in there in my inventory and also not in my crafting bagpack! How can i do it? pls help me

  7. wont stop crashing with the shift-b and wont work cratable yes but anything else and the game crashes i love this mod but please FIX IT!

  8. I installed the mod in 1.8.8 and every time I tried to open a backpack and my game crashed 🙁 I think this is a bug

  9. My game also crashes when I try to open the bag. If anyone has a fix, that’d be gr9! this seems like a really cool mod

  10. Mine worked for a while then ,for apparently for no reason, every time I tried to open the backpack my game would crash. This is a really cool mod, please fix?

  11. This is a great mod, and it is working perfectly for me. I really love it. I no longer use the crafting backpack, though. The built-in crafting table replaces much of the storage capacity, whereas I would have preferred it to be *added* in stead. So I simply use FZ’s pocket crafting table or Botania’s Assembly Halo in stead 🙂 Still means juggling stuff around: one can’t have the pack open while crafting… :'(

    To those that claim it isn’t working – that they cannot put the backpack on – in the “Controls” config screen, find the key associated with “Open Backpack”. I’ve configured that to be ‘I’ on my system. If you hold shift, and press that key, the interface to put the backpack on will open. It’s really not that hard.

  12. Works great! BUT… HOW can I wear it on the back? the 3D model isnt working 🙁 it would look great :/
    Is it a bug or do I use it wrong?

  13. This is my favorite mod of all time TBH.
    Yeah sure TNT mods are pretty cool and all, but this backpack mod is just WAY more useful! I love it. You can always use a couple backpacks no matter what other mods you have installed.

    Btw, does it work in 1.8.9 as well?

  14. I tried this in 1.12.2 and you can hold the backpack in your shield hand. You can’t wear it on your back and you can’t craft it.

  15. Noticed a glitch where inventory replaces item slot with previously used and places or activates when you move the backpack. i.e. if backpack is in slot 2 on HUD, and then you move it and put something else there, game reverts to the item that was put there immediately after the backpack was swapped out. e.g. I move bp and place glass block. then I swap glass block for backhoe. when I use the backhoe it ends up placing a glass block…

  16. People don’t download mods from this website. The mod version on this website is an old one and contains a bug which don’t let you open the backpack and when placed on the ground it says you don’t have permission and mess it up for you. Go to curse forge website instead, they have the latest version and it’s working.

  17. Im using 1.7.10 and the mod is really cool. My ONLY issue is that when the backpack is on my back, it’s sideways and not the regular way a bag should be. I can’t find any way to fix this.
