Best single lens bag... for 28mm and 85mm F1.8G lenses

So if you're looking for the "best" single lens belt bag for either the 28mm F1.8G or 85mm F1.8G here's what I found.

I wanted one bag that would fit either the 28mm F1.8G or the 85mm F1.8G while the other sits mounted on the camera. In both cases I've got the front and rear lens caps, a filter, and the lens hood reverse mounted.

First I started with the Pearlstone Onyx 50, but it's a bit bigger than I would have liked. Next up, the LowePro 13cm*9cm lens bag, this is nearly perfect.

The 9cm inside diameter of the LowePro is just right, if anything just a tiny bit tight, but it works fine for both lenses. The length of the bag is longer than necessary, 13cm internal dimension, 10cm or 11cm would have been ideal, but I think this is as close as it gets.
