Jump off a small ledge and paraglide
Enter menu and hold an item that has a quantity of 1 followed by the item that you want to dupe in the last slot of your inventory.
Exit menu and reenter menu. The quantity 1 item will be dropped but the duped item will stay in your inventory. So hold another quantity 1 item followed by desired duped item again.
