Tatooine Backpack Unit
These backpack units are worn by some of the locals walking the streets of Mos Espa. I believe they're supposed to be part of a thermal cooling unit.

These appear in the Episode I Visual Dictionary (see above).

Hasbro also made a toy for the 3 3/4 inch action figures that features the backpack unit. I recovered the prop itself on a trip to Tunisia a year after the filming of Episode I.
