Backpacks were a mundane form of portable storage.[6]

Description[edit | edit source]

Backpacks were large sacks[8] that came in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and materials. These included canvas sacks with shoulder straps and woven baskets with a lid and shoulder straps, though the most preferred type of backpack among travelers was the leather backpack.[6]

Leather backpacks had multiple pockets,[6] on either side and a large one in the back, which could all have their contents secured by a top flap with a tie. They typically had wide,[8] padded straps[6] in the front so they could be carried on the shoulders and leave the hands free.[8] In addition, some leather backpacks were waterproof.[6]

Beyond the standard backpacks sold by most merchants, some were known to commission experienced tailors or leatherworkers to construct specially made backpacks.[6]

History[edit | edit source]

Backpacks first became available in Netheril in 1721 NY (−2138 DR).[9]
