I dislike those squeezy things - they are cheap, gather huge volumes of dust/crud in nooks and crannies and necessitate rocket blowing more often as a result. Never drop one in the dirt. I stick with the thin and light, dare I say minimalist CZ caps that force me to do what I should - be careful. Not perfect, almost an admission of imperfection by CZ - the bloody lens cap.
I use high quality thinsulate motorcycle gloves, tactile sensing is much too important for mittens and all I require is enough insulation to stop numbness setting in. I do think you get used to the cold, however, I rode motorcycles 365 days a year for 25 years in all conditions. If you wear mitts, where do you put the mitt when you take it off to work?
Filters work like disposable diamond hard material, good ones anyway. Zeiss love giving us filter rings unlike some other makers, ahem. Hoods don't work with ultra wides where I work, and take up too much change time and space in the bag. So there is the friendly contrarian, dare I say 'Alt' view!
What kind of road kill are you wearing on your melon, Bifurcator? Synthetic is for beta boys, you know, so the French ladies tell me. lol. Kind of offset by the tough guy green jacket, though, regaining you some brownie points. hah.
