Game Day Approved Accessories
These stadium-approved bags will have you ready for football season.
In Morgantown, back to school translates into homework and exams for students and increased traffic for the rest of us. It also means the most wonderful time of the year in Morgantown is right around the corner—football season. Game day in the University City is no joke, and most fans start thinking about their season kickoff gear before the first week of classes is even over.
When you’re shopping for this year’s hottest tailgating accessories, it’s important to also keep stadium regulations in mind. According to the Football A-to-Z Guide, any bag exceeding 12-inches wide by 12-inches tall by 12-inches deep, as well as any backpack, school bag, and gym bag, may not be brought into Milan Puskar Stadium. Permitted bags may be subject to security checks, and many other universities are implementing clear bag policies for football games and other ticketed events. So unless you want to leave your bag at the tailgate, you need an appropriate, stadium-approved bag to get to your seat before kickoff.
That’s where clear bags and purses created by Pittsburgh-based Little Earth Productions come in handy. The company has produced a line of new bags in various sizes that help fans get through security quickly and easily. Luckily, the bags aren’t just useful—they are also cool, fashionable game-day accessories.
The Clear Envelope Purse ($19.99 + 10-inches wide by 6.5-inches tall by 0.5 inches depth) is perfect for game-day essentials, yet fashionable for wearing out afterwards. It can be worn over the shoulder or as a crossbody.
The Clear Waist Pack/Crossbody ($24.99 + 8-inches wide by 5.25-inches tall by 2.5 inches depth) is easily adjustable and can convert from a waist pack to a crossbody for multiple looks. As a game-day alum, I highly recommend this option—it’s perfect to avoid throwing your bag down when it’s time for the first down cheer.
For those looking for a larger bag that’s still within stadium regulations, the Clear Crossbody Carryall ($19.99 + 11.5-inches wide by 11.5-inches tall by 5.5-inches deep) features an adjustable strap and has a detachable wristlet inside, which can be used for smaller, more personal items.
