Canon HV20 Waterproof options

When using the HV20 at the beach, in the rain, or on a boat, what are the options to keep it dry, but maintain the clarity of the lens? I would like to hear all of the options to keep the HV20 dry.

One option I saw is something called Aquapac which is a plastic bag type protection.

Manufacturer's site with movie samples:

BH photo has it. Anyone have any comments on this?

Hi Alan -
The Sony HCB and HCC sports packs also can hold this camera - I had a couple gutted shells laying about... since the HV20 doesn't have LANC, all it needs is to be housed, so proved to be a good "recycle" for a electronically dead HCB.
