Jim, you and I seem to use hoodies for different purposes. I use mine on lenses proper, i.e., not on the hoods, only when the lenses are in short term storage at home, in their bags.
That 'splains it!
I use the hoodies on my mounted hoods to keep carp off the unprotected front elements. I often put the biggies nose down, on attached hood, with body on top. If installed, the hard disk insert in the hoodies makes the system wobbly, because it doesn't fit entirely inside the rim of the hood. So, I take out the insert. OTOH, when the hood is reversed, I still sometimes put the biggie nose down, but the soft hoodie offers no protection for the front element. Enter Zeck! No handle, because that makes it wobbily.
'Ain't life wonderful!
P.S. I use the Zeck caps just like 'normal' lens caps. Once I start taking photos, the Zeck goes in my back pocket (I have large back pockets). When I'm finished, I lock it down with a Zeck. In between (the start and end of taking photos), I use the hoodies.
P.P.S. I don't know if you've noticed, but I'm consiously avoiding the words 'shooting' and 'shoot'. Please, let me know if I lapse back into the easy and inappropriate vernacular.
