An 8 slots container that halves the speed of food spoiling inside.

-Scrapbook Description

The Insulated Pack is a backpack, used to expand the character's inventory. Having 8 inventory slots, perishable items contained within will spoil at half the speed, same as an Ice Box. It requires 1 Thick Fur, 1 Gears, and 1 Electrical Doodad to craft and an Alchemy Engine to prototype.

The Pack itself cannot be placed in one's inventory or a Chest, and only one may be equipped at a time. When an Insulated Pack is created, it automatically equips itself in the Chest Slot, if it is available. This item uses the same equipment slot as Armor and Vests, which means wearing one requires sacrificing the benefits of the other. The Insulated Pack cannot be burned.

Although Insulated Packs cannot be placed in the inventory or in Chests, they can be placed on the ground and used for storage. Any item clicked on an Insulated Pack which is on the ground will give the 'Store' option, allowing the pack to be filled without equipping it. 

Despite slowing the spoilage of food items, the Insulated Pack does not completely work the same way as an Ice Box. Unlike the Box, the Pack will not stop the spoilage of Ice and Ice Cubes and will not be able to freeze a Thermal Stone. Additionally, it will completely prevent hot food from cooling off over time.

  • Despite not being food, any animals stored inside will starve 0.5x as fast.
  • By the second Autumn and after killing Bearger, an Insulated Pack can completely substitute a Backpack, since they both have the same amount of slots and it can additionally slow down food spoilage.

  • In the July 25, 2019 patch, the amount of inventory slots was increased from 6 to 8, to compete with Warly's Chef Pouch. In the May 28, 2020 patch, the Gears and Electrical Doodad cost was reduced to 1.
