In the anime, Hachikuji always carries a large backpack everywhere. What's in the bag? And why she always carrying it? Did she also carry it in the LN?

(I only watched until episode 5 in Monogatari Series: Second Season, so I don't know if there will be any explanation about this.)

    In addition to looper's answer, it's probably somewhat representing a snails shell in physical appearance - and guess what animal she's associated with~ Commented Aug 20, 2015 at 20:02

Yes, she also has the backpack in the Light Novel. When she decided to visit her mom after a long time, she put memories in there to make her mother happy.

Here's a quote from the Mayoi Snail Arc in the LN (BakaTsuki translation):

She neatly bound her own hair and filled her favorite backpack full of old memories hoping to delight her mother with them.

.

In the end she died with her backpack on, so she still carries it after her death.

    Specifically these old memories were of her dad.
