Having a good backpack is a very interesting idea if you play Minecraft often. Not only does this come with a huge way to improve the way you store and transport stuff, but it also makes the entire experience simpler and easier than ever before. It’s a great and high quality product that you will appreciate quite a bit to begin with. You can use these upgrades in order to improve the functionality of the product. It will not be easy to do so without a good mod and that’s where the Iron Backpacks Mod comes into play.

Iron Backpacks Mod

This mod will make it easier to handle portable storage issues. The way it does that is by allowing you to get 4 new backpack tiers which are made out of iron, diamond and gold or you can get the basic one. The tiers are upgradeable, with basic being the simpler one and diamond being the best. The upgrade slots are helpful if you want to boost the functionality of this backpack, if you want to add more features and generate a very good set of results in the longer term.
Iron Backpacks Mod 1.10.2


It’s nice to have a backpack whose size will scale based on how much space you actually need. It just brings in an entirely new layer to the entire experience and that on its own makes everything a lot more refined to begin with.

As you can imagine, the quality does differ quite a bit and that’s exactly why you need to upgrade your backpack the best way you can. It will take a little bit of time until you get the right resources, true, but the experience can be very well worth it in the end.

Keep in mind that while the backpack improves, you receive more upgrade points and a boost for the storage space. It’s the best way to reach an incredible quality and the outcome is worth it more and more each time you do so.



You can use the upgrade points to bring in more than 20 Iron Backpacks Mod backpack upgrades. These are a delight to use and the experience you receive here is nothing short of impressive. They allow you to boost the functions of your backpack and the way it works which is really exciting. Thanks to the mod you can easily carry a lot more stuff and it just cleans up the old interface without a lot of problem.

You will need backpacks in Minecraft if you play the game often, so the mod will be there for you to help whenever you need that extra storage space. It might take a while to get the very best upgrades, but with the right approach you will see that nothing is impossible. Try to keep that in mind and the experience will be worth it.

There are four types of backpacks, with their values (include the recipe to upgrade to the next tier) able to be modified in the config:

  • Basic – The default backpack. Default values: 2 rows of 9 inventory slots (18 total) and 0 upgrade slots.
  • Iron – The next tier. Default values: 4 rows of 9 inventory slots (36 total) and 1 upgrade slot.
  • Gold – The next tier. Default values: 6 rows of 9 inventory slots (54 total, equivalent to a double chest) and 2 upgrade slots.
  • Diamond – The final tier. Default values: 7 rows of 11 inventory slots (77 total) and 3 upgrade slots.

Each backpack has two GUIs (graphical user interfaces). The default GUI, the one which stores all of your items, is accessed by right clicking. The alternate GUI is accessed by shift-right clicking, and it will display the alternate GUI upgrades (if applicable).

When the backpack is upgraded to the next tier (ex: gold -> diamond) it keeps it’s inventory and any upgrades it had. The same thing happens when an upgrade is applied (shapeless crafting).

Button – Adds 4 buttons to the default GUI and a variable number of buttons to the alternate GUI which respectively perform these actions:

  • Moves everything from the backpack to your inventory
  • Moves everything from your inventory (the slots above your hot-bar) to the backpack
  • Moves everything from your hot-bar to the backpack
  • Sorts the backpack (condenses each stack of items and rearranges alphabetically according to the item’s name)
  • Adds buttons to each category in the alternate GUI which quickly clears the items in the category of the respective button.

Crafting – Adds 9 slots to the alternate GUI, each of which can have 1 item in it. Whenever you pick up an item, each item in the backpack will check if it is also in a condenser slot, and if so, will try to be crafted into a condensed version. For example, if you have redstone in the condenser slot, and 64 redstone in your backpack, when you pick up an item you will now have 1 redstone and 7 blocks of redstone in your backpack. This upgrade will sort your backpack after it condenses an item. This upgrade works fine with the filter and restocking upgrades.

Damage Bar – This upgrades adds a damage bar to the backpack which reflects how full it is (in regards to it’s total capacity), meaning that you can simply glance down at the backpack to get a quick visual representation of how much space you have left.

Filter – Adds 9 slots to the alternate GUI, each of which can have 1 item in it. Whenever you pick up an item, if that item is also present in one of the filter slots the item will go directly into your backpack instead of just into your inventory. This upgrade works with the crafting and restocking upgrades.

Filter (Mod Specific) – Can be either applied on an empty slot, or it will replace the filter upgrade if it is already installed. Upgrades the filter so that it will not check for the exact item, but rather for any item from the mod that the item in the filter slot(s) is from. Groups vanilla Minecraft items together as a “mod” for this purpose.

Resupply – Adds 9 slots to the alternate GUI, each of which can have 1 item in it. This upgrade applies whenever you pick up an item. If the backpack contains the item that is present in any hopper upgrade slot (in the alternate GUI), the backpack will attempt to refill a stack of that item if it is present in your inventory. For example, putting cobble in the hopper slot will allow you to constantly have 1 stack of cobblestone in your hot-bar.

Nesting – Allows you to put as many backpacks of any previous tier as you want inside this backpack.

Renaming – This upgrade only appears if you have the config option “renaming update required” set to “true”. If you do, then this upgrade will add a bar in the alternate GUI where you can type in a new name for the backpack and then rename it (much like in an anvil). If the config option is set to false, this upgrade will be applied by default.

Eternity – Allows you to keep the backpack and all of it’s contents when you die. However, the upgrade will disappear after this, you will have to make and apply a new one if you want the upgrade again.
