Fortify Carry Weight increases the wearer's maximum carry weight. It is similar to the Feather effect in previous The Elder Scrolls games.


The following alchemical ingredients bear the Fortify Carry Weight effect.


The following items bear this effect. These items can be disenchanted to learn the effect:

  • Charmed Necklace
  • All varieties of Boots of Brawn
  • All varieties of Boots of Hauling
  • All varieties of Boots of Lifting
  • All varieties of Boots of the Mammoth
  • All varieties of Boots of the Ox
  • All varieties of Boots of Strength

Unique items that cannot be disenchanted:

A learned Fortify Carry Weight enchantment can be applied to any unenchanted:

A definite location to learn the Fortify Carry Weight enchantment is in Sinderion's Field Laboratory in Blackreach, which contains leather boots of hauling which can be disenchanted.


In order to increase carry weight, there are perks that provide that effect:

  • Conditioning makes your worn heavy armor weightless. (Heavy Armor skill tree)
  • Enchanter can make new carry weight enchantments on armor 20/40/60/80/100% (20% per rank). Enchanter stacks with Insightful Enchanter, making carry weight 125% stronger. These effects are cumulative with Seeker of Sorcery, giving a total of 135% stronger enchantment to increase encumbrance. The effect can be temporarily increased with a potion of fortify enchanting, specifically an enchanter's elixir which offers 25% stronger enchantments, and a 10 point boost to enchanting can be achieved by wearing four relics of Ahzidal's armor, making the enchantment even stronger.
  • Extra Pockets will increase your carry weight permanently with 100 points. (Pickpocket skill tree)
  • Unhindered makes your worn light armor weightless. (Light Armor skill tree)

The Steed StoneEdit

Alternatively, one can increase carry weight with The Steed Stone. This boosts the total carrying capacity with 100 extra points, for a maximum of 200 points when used in conjunction with the Extra Pockets perk. It does not cost any perks or gold, which makes it a good investment for increasing carry weight easily. In addition, the the Steed Stone eliminates the weight of any equipped armor or weapons, making for a useful alternative to the Unhindered and Conditioning perks.
