Compact camera bag/cover for Olympus stylus 1

I am looking for a compact bag/cover for an Olympus stylus 1 (just bought). I've read a few posts about suitable bags but mostly they are oversized, padded bags with space for accessories. I am a mountaineer and space is always at a premium in the rucksack. My ideal bag would be able to be hip belt mounted, JUST big enough to fit the camera in, have minimal padding to keep the volume down (camera will secure on belt a lanyard or in my rucksack amongst soft items) and showerproof (if it tips down with rain the camera would go into a goretex jacket pocket or a ziplock plastic bag in rucksack - or both!).

Optech soft pouch (size C?) might be the best option, but just wondering if anybody has found other compact choices?

Why buy a compact camera only to put it in a huge bag which you have to lug around? My old Olympus xz-1 fitted perfectly in an Oregon slim 7, but the EVF on the Stylus makes finding a perfect fit more difficult.

Thanks for any suggestions.
