Default Water resistant casing for RPL/Prometheus

Hello,

I have a Prometheus 465mW, and I'm planning to make a water resistant case for it.
Do you think the Prometheus/RPL will fit in the D cell flashlights?
Anyone know any other flashlights that can fit the RPL inside?
I'm looking for one with hard plastic, so it won't scratch the paint on the RPL.

Thanks!
Victor

It'd probably fit into a 2x D cell Maglite.

I don't think thats water proof.

If I was going to take ANY of my lasers underwater (which I have) 8-) I would not want to take any risk. So when I needed something that would protect the laser I made this --&gt; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_c3SHj0qbc
Now I know what most forum members are going to say &quot;but hydro15 kipkay also made that stupid
minimag hack&quot;. Well, not all his hacks are bad. I was very surprised to find that it didn't leak even when I left it under water for 12 hours.

Did I say I needed something water proof? *;D
The Maglite is water proof by the way.
I just need it water resistant(water proof from rain, splashes, etc..
So you made that?
Do you have any pictures?

EDIT: *I watched the video, and that was just useless. *Anyone with common sense can do that, lol.
I want a case for my RPL that can also be used(can be able to be turned on/off) while it is in the case.

I haven't made one myself, but from the measurements it looks like it'd fit once you've removed all the junk in the head. Make sure you don't scratch your laser up though.
