Make a space that's large enough for your largest hood, then nest the other hoods inside that one.

Nah, when I grab a lens I want to be ready to go. Don't want to dig for the proper lens Hood.

I think it depends on the bags your looking at. Once you get to a certain level they really are designed by people interested in photography.

Here's a bad photo of my Gura Gear Bataflae 32L (taken from my old iphone)

Easily fits the 600 F4 IS on the left and the 200-400 with a 1D4 attached on the right. Both with hoods reversed. Still room to include a 1.4x TC, spare batts etc in the side or front pockets.

There are bags of all shapes and sizes. The problem is we must compromise between size and weight when carrying gear. Yeah, I'd love to pull out my equipment and be ready but not be compromised by bulk. Now, if I can't squeeze lenses + hoods in my bag(s) I thread them all through a heavy velcro strap and they carry attached to the outside of my pack.

Wow, you guys are so organized, with such prestigious camera bags and everything fitting precisely.

I don't think I have as much gear as you guys do, but I still have too much to fit into a single bag. So at home my stuff is stored here and there in different places, distributed over shelves and a couple of bags.

Storage in bags becomes an issue for me when travelling with gear, or going on a shoot. Those two purposes are so different, they call for different solutions. Compactness and efficiency is important for the former, usability for the latter. The latter situation, going on a shoot, varies a lot for me. Of course I never take everything. Generally I just hang a body and lens around my neck (sits on a car seat when driving). Additional stuff might go into a canvas bag, or maybe a hard case, and sometimes even in a pocket, all depending on what I need and what it is. A different solution for different shoots.

I'm admiring the bags you guys have, but so far can't see their utility for how I use my gear.

As you say different bags for different purposes.

I have my Gura gear bags for carrying big telephotos, or one telephoto and other gear when traveling with Canon gear.

A small Domke shoulder bag for carrying an Xpro2 and a spare lens for general photo walk abouts or traveling.

A think tank airport series for carrying the Fuji kit when traveling as it also takes an ipad and laptop.

An ONA bag for the Fuji to carry two bodies and an Ipad for street.

Pelican cases for location shoots or traveling in country as these just go in the back of the car and are filled with gear. They're not taken out as they are too heavy and bulky to really carry far.
I've done the camera sitting on the front seat in the past, only takes that one time when you have to hit the brakes hard to send that $$$ kit to the floor, which is where the Pelican cases come in handy.

I like storing them on the lens too because it's enough time and effort just swapping lenses that I don't want to also have to dig around for the hood in a different place and sift through them to find the right one.

Bingo! Been doin it this way forever ..

This is where rubber lens hoods come in handy.

Yes, it is a calculated risk. I want to be ready for critters that I might find along the way. Many won't wait for me to get the camera out of a case.

I think that ones bags are an expression of your personality, I always shoot with a lens hood and store my lenses with the hood reversed for maximum protection. I used shoulder bags, mainly Domke when I started but then gravitated to packs. Back in my Mamiya RZ days, it was Lightware Multi cases but those are utilized for lighting kits now. This is my latest, a Tenba Shootout large which I'm pay with.

I never shoot without a lens hood. With my old Hasselblad gear I had a bellows pro shade as they called it with front masks that was amazing. Although it might seem big by itself, it took up less space in the bag than separate hoods for each lens and was far more effective. Unfortunately I cannot seem to find anything similar for 35mm cameras.

There used to be a couple that I used in the manual-focus days when lenses were slimmer.
