Good Protective Filter for Tamron 10-24

I want to get a filter (77mm) for the Tamron 10-24 lens I just ordered. I intend to use the lens outdoors and want the peace of mind knowing that the lens is protected by the filter (I'm stating this because I realize many people prefer to shoot without protective filters to obtain the best IQ but I'm not one of them-just my personal preference).
The question I have is which protective filter should I consider? I read that the slimmer types might be better with wide angles. I'd also like to get a polarizing filter.
I'm not a pro so I don't need to have the absolute best - just filters that will do the job at a mid level price.

This is a no-brainer--a polarizer, which drastically IMPROVES your photos.

But at 77mm, it's going to cost a fortune.

Well worth every penny, but still a fortune.

This is why I use the Cokin system. Their P series holder and filters handle 77 no problem...I can use the same filters for all my lenses...but for ultra wide angle, you'll need their larger Z series.
