I keep my Dell Axim + headphones stored in a small organizer pouch. I (stupidly) put a bottle of water in my purse the other day that wasn't completely closed. Everything got fairly well soaked - the textbook I had in there, my wallet, etc. But my Axim was perfectly fine, because the pouch pretty much kept the water out - it was maybe slightly damp inside, but that's it. These basic pouches are really a million times more useful than I initially thought!
