New oly converter

Hi all, please help, what are you using? having recently purchased the 40-150 pro with converter and not had to remove the converter, can any recommend a small pouch for the converter. I know that oly do a pouch at around 23 but I think that's a little steep. Bit mean of oly not to supply a pouch after spending so much on the combo?
Kind regards Mike

I bought the combo and it included a zip-up pouch for the converter (as well as a rather unconvincing draw-string bag for the lens).

Thumbs up Re: New oly converter

Well my apologies to Olympus and you all, what a doughnut. In my excitement to get it up and running I missed the packaging at the bottom of the box under the cardboard the pouch was there all the time
Thanks to you all kind regards mike

And mine, with a funky little caribiner thingey. Can't see me using it much as I would rather keep the converter to my bag on or the 40-150.
