Default Waterproof/underwater camera bags

Has anyone tried or heard anything good or bad about the soft case waterproof camera bags? Apparently they protect your camera from sand, water etc. You can even take under water pics. Has anyone tried these??
Here's the site i was looking at http://www.thewaterproofstore.com/obcameracase.html

We have a lot of water related shore excursions and i was just wondering if this was a good buy

Default Re: Waterproof/underwater camera bags

Canoeing, rafting, boating, wading, light snorkeling (no freediving), light scuba (to 10 feet), waterfall climbing, in pool, on the beach = ok. Regular scuba/ intro to scuba = no. Get extra dessicant. Test before you go. Always be prepared for flooding - using disposable U/W cameras mitigate that risk.

Remember the only sure way to prevent a camera from ever getting flooded is to take it in a submarine. Enjoy your time in the water - fish need entertainment, too.
