Cheap lens hood for 28-135mm?

Anyone know where I can get a cheap lens hood for my 28-135 lens? I was looking around ebay but didn't really know the quality of hoods on there. I just don't want to spend $25 for Canon's hood.

Thanks,

Peter

So buy a third-party one from Amazon. If it doesn't meet your "quality" criteria, you have 30 days to send it back for a full refund and can try another.

I got one from eBay ($6-8) and it's just fine.

I bought an ebay one when I had that lens. The only real difference is that the ebay one does not have the Matte flocking applied to the inside to absorb reflection. Other than that it is fine
