Here's their link:

Since I do canoeing, etc around salt water, when I needed a second body for
my Leica M system I chose a Hexar RF. The reasoning being that the
autoexposure and built-in winder would make it a lot easier to use in such a
housing. I have yet to get the housing though so I can't say how well it
works. One thing's for sure, salt water is very corosive and you do need
some kind of protection for any 'normal' camera.
