The camera bag or lens pouch may appear too small for the lens with hood in shooting position. I normally store the hoods on my lenses, so when I take the camera or lens from the closet, the hood is always there, attached in reverse position.

For me too. But I always shoot with the hood facing forward.

I never leave the lens hood at home since my '2011 Iceland trip, when I had lots of images ruined with water drops on filter. For that trip, I left the hood at home, because on old EF 24-70/2.8L it was really enormous in size.

Thanks for explaining. I was wondering if there was benefit to shooting with it reversed that I had missed. It makes sense that you want to use it only in some situations. I guess your only option for doing that would be to us EF lenses with the control ring adapter.
