I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the ultimate solution: leave them in a bin at home. Meanwhile, I leave my lens hoods in the ready position, which protects the front element from accidental contact. One exception: my Bower Fisheye, which needs the cap for protection in the bag.

It works for me.

I do like the look of that Hoocap.

I was about to write the same thing.

For lenses with small front elements, I almost always use no protection since they're quick and easy to clean anyway. For massive front elements (like my Sigma 50/1.4) or for the GM1 which goes in my pocket, I throw on a high quality protection filter.
