What lens filter for Helios 44-2 ?

What size lens filter should I buy for the Helios 44-2? The main purpose for me is simply to protect the glass, any recommendations?

The 44-2 should have a filter diameter of 49mm.

I use B&W MRC filters on my more expensive lenses because I live in the very windy Southern California Desert. But for my Helios 44-2 I just use a metal tele hood with a 58mm lens cap. Protects your lens, reduces flare and the hoods look cool on old all metal lenses. Heres one off Ebay complete with lens cap. 49mm 49 mm Tele Metal Lens Hood For Canon Nikon Sony Olympus Pentax + Lens cap | eBay
