"The dog ate it" is hardly an acceptable excuse for homework absenteeism in college, and honestly, "it rained in my stupid cotton tote bag" is more plausible, but really, not much better. Yes, it's a situation a busy college student is all too likely to land in as snow, rain, sleet and spilled coffee attack from all angles. You know there's no getting around the often torturous stretch between classes, whether you're living through monsoon season down south or hoofing it through an old-fashioned east coast blizzard... so why not come prepared? That's easy to do with nylon, faux-leather and wax-coated bags that meet the toughest standards for style and durability (top-closures included!).
