GL2 waterproof housing?

I have a Canon GL2 and I'd like to get some kind of housing/enclosure for it so I can use it in the rain, snow, etc. without worrying about it getting damaged. I'd also like not to spend too much. What would you recommend?

Thanks

I came across that one... I'd really feel more comfortable with a plastic box than a $400 bag. :P

Thanks though. :)

The only problem that with a housing for that camera it is not cheap. Sure you can get a cheap one, but it will not have all the controls. I am getting an Equinox housing, with the controls I want it is some $1500 USD. But I do want it for diving. Good hunting and let us know what you find.

if you look a little further down, I actually started a similar thread asking about GL2 housings - I think it's entitled GL2 underwater and it goes through many of the options I've found.
