BackpackOnChest is a mod, which adds the functionality of carrying an extra backpack on your chest.

- Adds the ability to put his backpack on the Chest. (This gives a huge advantage especially when parachuting)
- Adds a backpack on Chest-Action to the ACE3 SelfInteraction-Menu
- Forces the player to walk while having a backpack on the chest

To install BackpackOnChest you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

For usage instructions and information of how to use the BackpackOnChest please refer to the wiki:
