For me, there are times when I would rather not risk losing the metal cap. Sometimes, I go out with just the camera+lens and no bag, so the cap would have to go in my pocket. If I lose a lens cap, I don't want it to be a metal one with nice felty insides.

To make it easier to grasp the hood, I attach two small strips of self-adhesive sand paper to the center pinch of the cap.
I like this idea very much and I'm going to steal it. Mwahahaha!
