Lens case recommendation for Pentax 50-135mm

Well I just purchased the above lens used and extremely pleased with it. But it didn't come with a lens case, any recommendations for one? There are lots to choose from. I would like one that would could be attached to a belt and or be carried with a shoulder strap.

LowePro S&F pouches are excellent. I have the 200AW Lens Exchange Case as well as their Technical Belt, but there are several others in their range which might suit a smaller zoom like the DA*50-135.

I'm sure Think Tank and several other brands have similar offerings.

I use neopreme fleece lined padded draw string lens cases as I find them protective as well as soft enough to slide into a bag or, with the better quality ones, having a strong belt/bag clip to attach it to your case or person.
It's worth the extra few dollars to buy name brand ones as the less expensive ones tend to split at the seams by the drawstring. Lowe/Domke/Tiffen are some better quality producers.

I bought this for my DA* 50-135 and it fits well with hood reversed on the lens.

Thank you all for the info. I do have an expandable type holster that works when attached to the camera, but then I am limited to one lens. I like to carry several lens & extra cards, lens cleaner, and batteries with me.
I will take a look at the the suggestions.
