Someone said it before on this thread, everyone has an opinion on this, and here's mine.

Something vs. nothing: Something, for peace of mind. Use a hood too.

UV vs. Protector: Get UV for 24-70 and 85. But also get a SKY 1A for the 70-200. It's a little pinker and stronger and usually the same price as UV.

Brand: Hoya HMC, one grade up from their basic filter (not the way overpriced and overhyped HD series). I wish I had kept the address but, about a year ago, one website tested maybe 20 UV filters and concluded that the HMC tied for most effective and was 1/3 the price.
