The encumbrance system in Skyrim was improved with this creation, which was first released in 2018. They not only boost carry weight, but some also offer additional effects that are useful for most playstyles.

All existing creations in the Skyrim Creation Club are available to gamers that upgrade to the Anniversary Edition of Skyrim. This is on top of the 26 additional creations already available. Over 40 expansions are offered, including the Adventurer’s Backpack creation.

Adventurer’s Backpacks can be obtained from two sources in Skyrim: vendors and craftsmanship. They aren’t expensive to buy and don’t require any complicated crafting resources to make, so almost every player will be able to get one sooner rather than later.

Each backpack also comes with a Bedroll, though this appears to be just decorative as it has no bearing on where players receive the Well-Rested perk.

Crafting

  • It’s virtually as easy to create a backpack as it is to buy one, and their low resource prices make it a nice thing to make early on for some extra cash.
  • Normal Backpacks cost 1 Corundum and 3 Leathers, whereas exceptional Backpacks cost 1 Corundum and 4 Leathers.

Where to Buy And Find Backpacks

  • Backpacks can be purchased from any general merchant, such as Belethor in Whiterun or Lucan Valerius in Riverwood.
  • The special backpacks with additional effects cost 80 Gold each (with or without the Bedroll), while the regular backpacks cost between 40 and 50 Gold – a Backpack won’t break the bank. They can also be found as treasure on the ground.

This design comes with 16 different sorts of Adventurer’s Backpacks, evenly divided between ordinary backpacks and backpacks with specific bonuses and abilities. The Mage, Hunter, Thief, and eponymous Adventurer backpacks all increase a player’s carrying capacity by 75 points (about a 25% increase above base stats).

Leather Backpack: Adds 75 points to Carrying Capacity
Fine Leather Backpack: Adds 75 points to Carrying Capacity
