The Op/Tech Fast Cap doesn't work with the lens hoods that I have. The diameter of the cap is a little larger than the diameter of the lens barrel but too large to fit inside a lens hood. I typically don't use lens hoods as the lenses I use are flare resistant. Since the flap is adjustable, it is possible to use it to block the sun from your glass. I find that I can draw the camera, flip open the Fast Cap and take the photograph so I have many less missed opportunities. I try not to use the quick draw approach to photograph that I learned in my PJ days in the 60s. I usually take the time to compose before shooting but some times, you just have to react.

I use lens hoods for protection. That way if I bang it against something it just hits the hood. I'm normally not concerned too much with flare but that's an added bonus.
