Clone troopers and some Jedi carried backpacks during battles in the Clone Wars. Republic commandos carried grenades and other items in backpacks. Clone trooper medics carried backpacks of medical equipment.
Later, Imperial stormtroopers carried backpacks during certain operations that required them to be independent and self-sufficient for long periods of time. The standard private stormtrooper backpack was equipped with an orange pauldron and contained E-11 energy cells among many other items.
