Lost hood for 35mm f/1.8 AF-S--should I replace it?

I lost my hood for my 35mm AF-S lens. Is it worth $25 to replace it? The lens is small and short, and the HB-46 hood isn't very deep. Maybe the damage protection is preferable to another $200 for the lens? I'm less sure of the light protection, though.
