Absolutely always...

One of my (bought used) camera came with a lens hood. Some reading suggests it can prevent glare/flare. I am curious to know how (much) people use these... If you have one, is it just collecting dust in the drawer or is it a 'must have' for you on outdoor photo trips...?

I never leave home w/o them   I don't use the fill flash as a main source of light, so blocking the flash with the hood is not a concern for me.  It's always on - indoors or out.
