Miscellaneous clothing is clothing that is neither a helmet, chapka, hood, diving gear, tunic, nor crown. There are currently two miscellaneous clothing items in game: the explorer's hat and the bag. In the Halloween Update, there existed a third Miscellaneous Clothing item, the Witch Hat.
The Explorer's Hat is a hat that allows players to pass by hostile mobs without detection, but only if the player has not mined, attacked, or punched anything in the last 10 seconds. This is useful in situations where players cannot afford or do not have time to fight the mob. The Explorer's Hat can be crafted with 3 rabbit fur, 3 paper and 3 thread near a workbench.
The Bag, also known as the backpack, is an item used to give 6 more slots of inventory space for players. It is one of the most common clothing items obtained by players, as it does not take up any inventory space, and is wearable with other types of clothing. The Bag is crafted with 5 wolf fur and 6 thread near a workbench. It is automatically used when crafted. You cannot craft another bag if you already have one.
The Witch Hat is an item that only existed in the Halloween update, which allowed you to fly with the Nimbus 2000 and cast spells with the Wand of Life and Death Wand. The witch hat had the same warm-up effect as Earmuffs.
