I had seen that. I was waiting for someone to take it underwater and test it. These true underwater housings are huge. I have had several different ones over the years. They work OK but are difficult to carry on the whitewater kayak. They won't fit in the PFD pocket and if you put them inside the boat under the skirt, it takes too long to get them out and I don't want to be pulling the skirt in the middle of a rapid.

Well, yeah.  This one says it's 150 x 110 x 98mm.  It could fit into a custom-made PFD pocket, but it'd be fiddly.  On the other hand, if you make a rigid DIY housing, it's not going to be any smaller, and will cut way down on controls.  If you want it to fit into a regular PFD pocket, it's got to be either a soft case like you've tried, or it's back to bellows with some way to equalize the pressure.
