Get ready for new restrictions if you plan on going to Bears games this season.

The NFL is limiting the size and kind of bags fans can carry into Soldier Field and all stadiums.

The idea is to increase security and get people inside more quickly.

Starting with the pre-season, banned items will include purses larger than a clutch bag as well as coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, seat cushions, and computer and camera bags.

An exception will be made for necessary medical items.
