(There's only standard backpack on 1.14.4, 1.15.2, 1.16.1, 1.16.2, also potions can't be put to tank)

Traveler's Backpack Integrations released! Check it out!

Why should you choose Traveler's Backpack?


  • Full inventory? No more!

At a time where there's a lot of mods and even more items, you'll need functional and capable backpack. Since the traveler's backpack can provide about 45 inventory slots and 2 fluid tanks, which each can store up to 4 buckets of fluid or even 16 bottles of potion (Now even more, since it's configurable!), this backpack becomes a really good option to consider.

  • Chestplate or backpack? Why not both?

Traveler's backpack doesn't need any empty armor slot (or other slot) to be worn. But It doesn't mean you can wear infinite number of backpacks at the same time.

  • The best gear for adventures!

What are the most important things you take with you, when you're going on an adventure? I guess it's a crafting table, bed and furnace. Now you have to take only furnace, because traveler's backpack can

provide rest of the things! You are able to use crafting inside of backpack's inventory or pull out the sleeping bag in any time you want!

  • Customization that you have never seen!

Choose your style from 75 custom backpacks and if that weren't enough, some of them can provide special abilities!

Inventory guide

Traveler's backpack inventory can be split into segments, which have other functions. I'll try to explain you what each element of inventory does.

Here you can see the inventory:

  • Blue slots stand for base backpack inventory, where you can store your items.
  • Green slots accept only tools and provide special inventory action - Tool cycle (See below) (Accepts: wrench, hammer, grafter, axe, shovel, scoop, crowbar, mattock, drill, chisel, cutter, disassembler, TiC tools)
  • Brown slots are mostly crafting grid and one of them is crafting result slot. These slots save items.
  • Bucket slots accept all the fluid containers and potions. If a tank is suitable for fluid, container will move into the slot under and tank will get filled.
  • Slots under bucket slots are just outputs of bucket slots. You can't put there any items.


You've probably noticed, that in gui is one more element, which I didn't explained before. There are 3 types of buttons. Each of them appears in proper conditions.

  • Equip button is visible, when player holds backpack in a hand and doesn't wear any. If button is clicked, the backpack will be worn on the player.

  • Unequip button appears, when player wear a backpack. To access this button you have to open inventory [default B]. If button is clicked, the backpack will be added to the player's inventory.

  • Sleeping bag button is visible, when backpack is placed on the ground. If button is clicked and there's enough space, the sleeping bag eventually will be deployed. If sleeping bag is already deployed and player clicks the button, sleeping bag will be folded back to the backpack.


  • Cycle tool

You can perform this action if you're holding a tool, wearing a backpack and tool slots aren't empty in backpack's inventory. At first click Z (Configurable), then scroll up or down. It will replace your current tool with one from tool slot. Such a useful trick!

  • Open inventory

If you wear a backpack, click B to open inventory. (Configurable in controls)

  • Swap tank attached to hose

If you wear a backpack and hold hose, click N to swap tank which hose is attached to. (Configurable in controls)

  • Change hose mode

If you hold hose, hold shift and scroll up or down to change active hose mode.


As you may know (or not know) some backpacks can provide special, mostly (not?) useful abilities. They appear while player's wearing backpack. (If you have cool ideas for abilities, feel free to report on GitHub.

Bat Backpack - Provides seeing in the dark! Batman Batman Batman

Bookshelf Backpack - Holds mighty knowledge, place around enchanting table just like the bookshelf to get higher-level enchantments!
Cactus Backpack - Acts like real-life cacti, If it's raining and above backpack is clear sky, the backpack will fill empty tanks with water over time. If you want some more water, dip yourself! The backpack can fill with water while being a block too.
Chicken Backpack - Have you ever wanted to be a chicken? No? Well, now you are! You'll lay eggs! 
Creeper Backpack - Sneak on another player to make them jump in confusion as they think one of those green monsters is behind him/her. You can do it every few minutes.

Emerald Backpack - Gives some cool particles, nothing special.

Squid Backpack - Grants water breathing effect while being in water.
Sunflower Backpack - Will feed you while you stay in the sun, slowly. At the very least you shouldn't starve.
