Wearable Backpacks

.. is a Minecraft mod which adds backpacks. But wait! It's not like anything you've seen before. Wearable Backpacks continues the legacy of BetterStorage's backpacks, and brings with it a beautifully designed and balanced alternative backpack option unlike any other!

What's so great?


Think of Wearable Backpacks backpacks as portable, wearable chests. After you've crafted one, simply place it on the ground and fill it with whatever you'd like to take with you. Next, sneak and break the backpack to equip it. You'll notice that equipping is faster than breaking.

Now that the backpack is where it belongs (your back), you can unequip it again by sneaking and right-clicking the ground with an empty hand (specifically, the top of a solid block).

By turning on a config option, it's also possible to open the backpack using a keybind, which you can find in the controls menu (default: B).
