60mm lens cap and protection options

Sorry, but I am anal about protecting my lenses, and have always used UV or other clear filters, lens hoods, and caps. Just me.

The 60mm lens cap — in fact all of the x lens caps — seem hard to stick on, and easy to pop off. Forget about the rubber hood covers, you will loose them soon enough.

I am going with the B+W MRC Nano clear XS-Pro filters on all three lenses, and the EX Photo metal lens hood on the 60mm.

Since I can't fit the camera with lens and lens hood on in my bag (Billingham Hadley Small) I am going to have to slap a lens cap on the 35mm. Any better candidates than those that Fuji ships?
