Clear Bags Clarified: Clear Bag Policy for NFL Stadiums and CMA Festival

We sometimes get questions from football fans asking exactly what are the rules to get into an NFL stadium for a football game or other event like a concert.  For example country music fans have been wondering what are the rules to get into LP Field for the upcoming CMA Festival (Fan Fair) in Nashville, which is held at LP Field.

The details of the NFL clear bag policy are as follows:

First, if you do want to bring a bag, you have two options -- a clear tote bag, or a small not-clear (opaque) clutch-sized bag.

  • If you opt for a clear tote bag, it cannot measure more than 12 x 12 x 6 inches and needs to be clear on all sides.  We have many compliant bags on our web site here.

Some examples of allowed bags are below.  They can all be found here.

  • If you opt for a non-clear bag, make sure it doesn't measure more than 4.5 inches x 6 inches.

Finally, they would prefer you don't bring a bag at all.  There are no rules about how big the pockets can be on your coat, cargo pants, etc. so you can stuff all you want into your clothing.

If you have any questions, please let us know and we're happy to help!  We can be reached at 1-800-881-4880 or at

New NFL Clear Bag Policy - Only Clear Handbags and Clear Purses at Games

 On Thursday the NFL announced that it will be requiring all fans wishing to bring a bag into the stadium to use a clear handbag or clear purse.  Clear tote bags will also be allowed, as long as they measure no more than 12" x 12" x 6".

The good news is that Clear Handbags & More already offers several bags which fit this size requirement, and you don't have to skimp on style to do it!  Please click the link below to see our list of NFL-ready clear purses, clear handbags, and other clear bags.

Something to consider regarding privacy: just because you have to carry a clear bag doesn't mean everything inside it has to be visible. For your "unmentionables", put them inside a small, opaque cosmetic bag or zipper wallet and in this way you can carry them privately inside your clear purse.

What do you think of the NFL's new bag policy?  Let us know!

American Jail Association Expo

American Jail Association

Clear Handbags & More will be traveling in a little under a month to Grand Rapids, Michigan to exhibit at the American Jail Association Training Conference and Expo.  The AJA Expo is "the largest conference created for jail professionals" and we look forward to being a part of it.

While at the conference, we hope to meet with jail administrators, sheriffs,  correctional officers, and others involved with corrections from across the country to discuss their needs for clear bags and the strategies they have used to implement and maintain a clear bag policy.  We look forward to hearing about current clear bag policies which are in place for jail employees as well as inmates and visitors, as well as learning about how Clear Handbags & More can better serve this industry!
