Store all of lenses with the hoods reversed in my bag, only my 10-22 doesn't cause it won't fit due to the hood being so wide.

I don't use my hood on my Sigma at all. Don't have a hood for the 18 - 55. So overall I don't use lens hoods.

I think you need to account for the size of the hood in any bag sizing that you do. Otherwise you will be disappointed when you can't fit what you thought you could when you bought a bag. The hood can add up to 1 inch to a hoodless lens, and in some cases like the 10-22, it could be as much as 1.5 to 1.75 inches. So, if you want to carry lenses 3 wide in a bag, you may need to add anywhere from 2.5 to 3 inches all the way to perhaps something like 4 inches to the width of the bag to ensure that you can slide your lenses in and out of the bag rapidly without it snagging on anything.

I hate how most bag manufacturers show their product being used with hoodless lenses. Its like "Bag holds a DSLR & 5-6 lenses". Sure, if you shoot small primes, don't use hoods, and stuff the bag to the point of not being able to work out of it.

Exactly. And the cutaway views showing 3 columns of lenses.. no way to do that if you have your hoods on unless you upsize your bags appropriately, make some careful measurements of the diameter of the hood at the widest spot when put on backwards on the lens, and add it all up with a bit of clearance. After all, nobody wants to be wrestling the lenses in and out of the bag.

Other than my 70-200 f/4 which would be too long for my bag all my lenses have hoods on and mostly caps off when out and about. I like quick easy access so use a top loader bag as well.
At home I tend to store them with hoods reversed.

Hoods are in the ready position on all my lenses except for the 17-40.

Hoods improve image quality! for me that's the most important factor, protection is a bonus.

I like to buy a bag where i can physically test-fit my stuff.. be that a local camera store, or a used one from a nearby seller. The measurements the mfgr's give don't really tell the whole story.

My hoods are revered in the bag, and unreversed when taken out :)

I always have my hoods on, but I keep them reversed when in my bag or in storage at home. The only lens that I did not keep a reversed hood on when on my bag was the Tokina 11-16, because it just would not physically fit in the bag.

Who would ever argue with flare resistance and element protection when mounted, and barrel (reversed) or element protection (not reversed) when in the bag?

If I am not using my camera, all of my hoods are reversed on the lenses while carried in the camera pack (and while stored on the shelf) EXCEPT my 10-22--that hood just doesn't fit any place so it gets shoved wherever I can find room for it sideways. But I do use it properly when I am using that lens.

Same.
