Default Is this a good waterproof bag for an UZI?

I found this listing on ebay, and the bag dimensions seem like they would more than accomodate the C-2100. I went to the Aquapac site, and the Uzi was listed among the cameras that none of their bags would fit. I asked the seller, and he said this was a discontinued item, so it would not have been considered in the list. I guess it's possible that it's actually too big. Does anybody have any thoughts on this? It seems like a good price and they have plenty of them. I'd love to have a decent waterproof bag to take on a canoe trip.

Thank you for the great tip! The width seems a bit tight for the C-2100. Are you sure it will fit? I didn't see that model listed among your amazing camera collection at the bottom of your post. If you think it will work, I'll go for it immediately

well then for $13US you can get the large and pad your camera with a pile sweater inside

Small size-i just tried it with my D7Hi width is 5 inches. length with lens shade on and lens retracted approx 5.875 inches. it goes in snug but no problem when its floating on the water. with lens shade off it drops in like it was made for it.

the large will allow the camera and a pile sweater no problem.

Wow, that one is almost thirty inches long, waaay too big, I think. I like the little one, but it might be a struggle to get the long nosed uzi in and out of the bag. I thought that the one on ebay looked interesting because of the fast access front panel... unless that would make it somehow less waterproof.
