Clear Bags for Concerts, Events, and Getting Through Security Quickly

If you are an NFL fan, or even if you are a professional sports fan in general, you may be aware of a new and extremely limiting bag policy. Basically, unless your belongings are held in a clear bag, you cannot bring them in to a professional game. The same holds true at larger concert venues.

At first glance that may seem crazy. After all, who has a clear bag? But once you give it some thought and realize it means increased safety and quicker entry lines, the reasoning behind the mandate starts to make sense. Sure, clear bags may mean that everyone is going to know what type of gum you like and which brand of chapstick you prefer, but that beats being an unsafe environment by a longshot.

So the next time you decide to spend an afternoon cheering on your favorite team, make sure you are hauling your stuff in one of these clear bag options.

This backpack is a great way to bring along anything you may need during a game. From a seat cushion to a water bottle, to an extra sweater, this see-through backpack can hold it all. It measures 12” x 15” x 4” which makes it roomy without being overly bulky.

The phthalate-free PVC plastic is both sturdy and completely see-through, so all you will have to do at the security checkpoint is flash the bag in order for the security officers to take a scan of its contents. It is comfortable, easy to carry, and keeps you comfortably within regulations. It is one of our favorite clear bags to use.

The colored fabric bottom and matching handles offer an element of style. You really can’t go wrong with this safety-conscious take on a classic tote bag.


If you want to go totally hands-free, but don’t have enough gear to fill up a backpack, then invest in this clear bags alternative — the see-through fanny pack. You can easily fit your phone, maybe an external battery, and some creature comforts like gum, a protein bar, and some lip balm.
