Good evening, I was thinking about the difference between my lens cap on my Nikon lenses and the total cover that goes on my ultra-wide Tamron.

The reason some ultra-wide lenses come with that type of "cap" is that they have a built-in hood and/or they lack filter threads which means that a traditional lens cap can't be attached.

Kind of hard to describe, but I really like the caps that go over the entire forward element of the lens and down the tube. I am not sure what third party producer makes these.

I looked at Kurvd and Polarpro on Amazon but am looking and wanting to review more options. Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations?

Another option might be the range of neoprene "Hood Hats" made by OP/TECH. They come in a range of sizes:
