Vanilla Backpacks Addon (1.9+ Only)

This is the first add-on for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition to implement fully working backpacks to the game. They are essentially a mobile chest which you can wear on your back while traveling around in your world. It’s great if you are out on an adventure and need somewhere to offload your blocks and items. It’s easy to wear and also easy to take off in case you need to access the storage space easily. It’s definitely a must have for all the survivors out there!

How does it work?

The backpack has a very low spawn rate. If you find one then you can make it your own by using an Emerald on the backpack.

  • Android / iOS: Hold an Emerald in your hand and click the Claim Backpack button.
  • Windows 10: Hold an Emerald in your hand and right-click the backpack to claim it.

Before you can use it you will need to use a dye to dye the backpack. Once dyed, you will then be able to open the backpack and store things in it.

Walk and stand near the backpack and it will automatically jump on your back.

You can only open your bag by placing it down on the ground and opening it like the inventory of a llama. To get it off your back, sneak!

It’s also possible to open other players bags while they are wearing them, but it will only work if the backpack is unlocked.

If you hold a tripwire hook in your hand and click tame then the backpack will lock and other players will no longer be able to open your backpack.

You can also lock/unlock it while it is on the ground.

You can use any of the dyes to dye your backpack in your favorite color.


  • Wearable
  • Dyeable
  • Functional
  • Lockable
  • If a “tamed” backpack falls of your back onto the ground then it will automatically follow you

Video Showcase

  4. Ignacio says:

    Where’s the backpack inventory? It does not appear

  5. Beverly Trimmell says:

    Sometimes the backpack shows up as a moveable entity, and moves to a different place than where I place it.

  6. SomeoneYoullNeverKnow says:

    Does this work on mcpe?

  7. JT2003Gamer says:

    It’s cool but why does times drop off your back everytime you jump?

    • Person says:

      Its because the backpacks are a replacement of a Parrot. Normally when you jump, the Parrots fall off your back and they follow you, so this is why the backpacks fall off and follow you. The Parrots were the most reasonable to implement into backpacks.

  8. Glazed says:

    Finally someone made a LEGIT backpack addon! You made my dream come true now im looking forward for someone making a drone addon and keep aup the Good work!!!

  9. Lloyd says:

    If the way to get it off is to jump, that kinda ruins its purpose, since you’d use it on an adventure or a mining spree. Why not sneak to take it off?

  11. Ronaldo says:

    would be perfect if there was another way to unbalance, because you can not play minecraft without jumping!

  12. Awesome gamer aviation says:

    Parrot: What a beatif- *TRANSFORM INTO BACKPACK*
    Parrot: NOOOOOO! I became a backpack!

  14. KupaKar says:

    Does the backpack replace an animal, or is it it’s own individual entity? Please Reply!

  15. Dragon flight 208 says:

    What does it replace !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Asher Rucker says:

    If you update this add on you should add backpacks with special designs. Like a skull one or a creeper one would be cool. I don’t think they should do anything though

    Every time I click the link to the download it keeps taking me to different random websites that have nothing to do with this.

  18. Jackson says:

  22. Vault20boy says:

    Can you please change it where you can’t jump to take it off and change it to sneak cause mostly when I adventure I sometimes jump and it drop so I have to make slabs to go up.

  23. Plyer 101 says:

    Nothing is an add-on a.p.i

  24. Sayori says:

    When i shot my arrow the arrow was stuck on my back when i stand still when i took the backpack off it hit the ground and sometime it would kill the backpack too

  25. Man says:

    Cool, but you should make another way to unequip the backpack because its impossible to play without jumping

  26. ItzLandoPlayz says:

    I mean its good and all, but you cant really go places, sense it replaces a parrot its gotta be jump to get it off, and im sure theres no way to stop that but it would have been cool if the jump thing didn’t mess it up.

  27. None says:

    Wait its not vanilla minecraft if it needs a addon. Things like this can only be called vanilla minecraft if they us command blocks not addons. Know your lingo

  28. Harrison says:

    Can you please update Minecraft PE so the people that play it can get the orange box with inventory? We don’t want to look for the orange box to use it.

    Ps your game is the best game ever and I play it a lot

  29. ThePaster says:

    Looks Cool! Nick work!

  30. Anonymous says:

    Please change the way to take it off, maybe change it to sneak instead of jump

  31. Baconoverlycooked says:

    How would you get the backpack in creative mode??

  32. GrimCreeper says:

    Can you make it so the bag can’t die

    • Zarkmend_ZAN says:

      Not a nice option for some reason. Backpacks still can be break, destroyed. But i will make it so it will be immune to potion damages.

  33. Anonymous says:

    Kinda cool init

  34. Anónimo says:

    The backpack is not going to my back. Helpp

  35. HanprogYT says:

  37. why tho says:

    This is so scummy, you separated the resource and behaviour packs just so you could get double the adfly bonus.

    • Zarkmend_ZAN says:

      Umm, actually @Prof_Magnumz linked the adfly website. Now i (@ArkreZamy, @Zarkmend_ZAN) have fixed it. Sorry for wasting your time.

  38. Somebody says:

    I got v1. 9 and now I installed this addon and furnicraft but they work good but when u spawn them they don’t show plsss help me!

  39. Nazif/AwayGamer666 says:

    I think u should have given the ride/jockey backpack option so it doesnt fall off. We could simply unride it to manage it

  40. Choosyhealer16 says:

    Ummm I think I’m on the wrong version even though I do experimental gameplay I can’t find it anywhere in creative mode

  41. ChannelBiyu says:

    Cool Addon 👍

  42. DiegoPlayer42 says:

    Where is backpack inventory???? 3 stars – _-

  43. Glazed says:

    Hey creator so at this new update you can’t put items to it anymore it won’t work even the inventory bar for the backpack is not there its just filled with gray emptyness

  44. ItsSkitPlays says:

    The spawn eggs are black and when i spawn it its invisible lol, i can open it but i cant restore anything…

  45. ItsSkitPlays says:

    Oh lol nvm i didnt turn on experimental mode on xD

  46. Ronaldo says:

    After the update I can no longer open the inventory of the backpack after locking it

  47. LucasLT says:


  48. AzozGamer936 says:


  49. Stormcrafter says:

    The backpack doesnt properly follow you when you swim it just floats

    • Zarkmend_ZAN says:

      You can’t make the backpack rotate the same rotation as the player does, so you can’t expect that would be possible.

  50. zelkat13 says:

    You could give the backpacks infinite resistance so they could be harder to… be killed lol, and maybe a way to “heal it” (or repair it) by feeding with ghost membrane since right now only repairs Elytras

  51. Lexi'Sundae says:

    Why the inventory doesn’t work?Form the fist version it’s work but now it’s doesn’t 🙁

  52. TheLogicalTester says:

    It works perfectly fine to me, though. You need to tame it with emerald, even though the inventory has no inventory size. And dye it, so uou can open the inventory.

  53. Anonymous says:

    wheres the inventory

  54. Damarrakha25 says:

  57. HirwrC says:

  58. Sillyashton769 says:

  59. Ahmedwolfy says:

    If It Invisible You Must Enable [EX] For The World soo To Make It Non-Invisible

  60. A Minecraft Player says:
