Here's what TrailblazerGirl.com has to say about Mudroom Backpacks:
Keep it clean! Our friends at Mudroom have essentially designed a portable “mud room” – that handy, catch-all spot where you keep your dirty, muddy shoes, so you don’t track muck into your clean house. How smart is that! Taking the mud room concept to their Quartable 18L, are the footwear pockets on either side of the backpack. They are large enough to hold a pair of shoes in each (a good TrailblazerGIrl can never have too many shoes!) or if you have some bulky hiking boots, place one in either side. These genius pockets keep your dirty shoes away from all your clean clothes. But Mudroom didn’t stop with just the special footwear pockets, they loaded this baby up with lots of other fantastic features like a large main area to carry all your other stuff, padded pockets for both your laptop and tablet, outside access to your laptop via a clever side pocket, 2 large outside pockets for easy access and organization of those small essentials, a hidden opening in the back to make it hydration bladder compatible, padded shoulder straps, reflective tape to help keep you visible at night, and plenty of hooks and spots to attach carabiners to hang gear. The bag stands on its own and holds it shape too, even when not completely full, and as they cutely say, there’s “no sloppy bag sag”. It’s great for travel to your next destination marathon, everyday urban adventures, trips to the gym and work, and weekend camping trips.
