I have a char with this setup who has ‘exuberant’ trait giving +50 stamina and -30 fatigue rate. She’s like a Para, she can carry 24 pipe bombs in her pants alone.

So, it is possible (but extremely unlikely) to have 12 slots, where consumables can stack to 9.

There are some other traits that can increase carrying weight. "Broad Shouldered" add 15 Max Capacity, "Smuggler" adds 10 Light Carry Capacity and 10 Max Carry Capacity, "Does Tons of Squats" adds 10 Max Carry Capacity, "Expert Traveller" adds 10 Light Carry Capacity, "Good Posture" adds 5 Max Carry Capacity, "Organised" adds 5 Light Carry Capacity.

Having other characters with specific hero traits can also help. "Backrubs" gives +5 Max Carrying Capacity, "Pack Maintenance" gives +10 Max Carrying Capacity, and "Pre-Packed Gear" gives +5 Light Carrying Capacity.

Hmm, than perhaps I've simply not found one. It took me four communities before I ran into a Norma after all.

Also 8 stack backpacks that aren't hiking packs weigh 12 pounds.

Backpacks:

Large 12 pounds, 8 slots; Hiking 8 pounds, 8 slots.

Skills:

Resourcefulness (from Wits), gives you an immediate extra slot in your pants (tm), also allows you to carry more use-ables in each slot (+2 i believe initially, and +3 at max)

Backpacking (from Strength), initially only gives you extra stamina and weight allowance, but once you get full stars you get an extra carry slot.

Perks, Traits:

Sewing, allows for more use-ables in each slot (never had one myself, or rather kept one in my community, so i am going by what QMJS above said)

Keeps Hidden Pouches, allows +1 on use-ables stack among the other benefits QMJS mentions.

I actually never pay attention to weight limits, as i feel they are completely meaningless (unless you run into a horde of Plagues with some Ferals in tow, and no Stamina or Health consumables). I mean i ran around with people carrying 8 25 pounds+ mods and a resource backpack and all it did was slow me down a little and use up stamina a LITTLE faster.

I tend to level Backpacking and Resourcefulness for my scavengers, and stealth and maybe acrobatics for my close in fighters. But tend to lean to the former for all...

EDIT:

Forgot the cars:

(any) Van/Ambulance (but better yet convert them into the Vandito) 8 Slots

Brogan Trekker 8 slots (don't convert that one as you will lose two slots in the "upgrade") other Brogans are safe to convert though

If they have the Sewing skill, that adds an extra +2 Max Consumable Stack, and the "Keeps Hidden Pouches" trait adds 10 Light Carry Capacity, 10 Max Carry Capacity, and 1 Max Consumable Stack.
