XF 55-200 lens hood replacement recommendations.

A few days ago I received the refurbished XF 55-200 lens I ordered. The product listing said it would include all accessories, but the box did not contain the lens hood or cloth lens pouch.

The seller is saying it could be a lengthy time to get the parts from Fuji and offered to refund $30 so I could buy a third party hood.

Since I've seen frequent complaints here about the hood for that lens it seems like it might be a good idea. But I don't know which third party hood is a good fit. (Amazon reviews are non-existent or unhelpful one-liners.)

For those who have replaced the lens hood, what brand did you buy and is it a good fit? Does it reverse over the lens like the Fuji hood?

As a bonus, does anyone know where I could buy a cloth pouch like the one that's supposed to come with the lens? I couldn't find anything with preliminary searching.
