Rubber Lens Hood for 50-200mm Zuiko

I'm going to take my 50-200mm Zuiko (Mk2) trekking this year and wanted to buy a rubber lens hood for it. I feel the standard hood is too bulky and easily damaged.

I've bought this one, which was the cheapest of the generic type:

At 2.46 including postage, it was ridiculously cheap and arrived in just 5 days!

The hood is fine and is more compact than the original one - though probably not so effective.

Re: Rubber Lens Hood for 50-200mm Zuiko

Looks like a good idea, I wonder if one like that would fit the 70-300mm?
