These generic cheap metal vented hood work well

The Fuji's are too big in the bag they rattle on the lens due to the bad plastic bayonet mount and the cap fall all the time

A lot of appeal, but rather poor quality and they don't revert either on the lens aprt the huge hood for the 60mm

A kind of Leica Ersatz hoods, not the best idea..

I can't say I've experienced any of what you've described other than the plastic/rubber cap falling off. In addition to the light-blocking properties, I use hoods as lens protectors. To this end, the Fuji hoods are excellent.
