Easy to install/store

Very easy to install; no need to thread on to filter thread. Very easy to flip to protect the lens while stored. Made of tough plastic that should stand to moderate to hard use.

I would recommend this product highly

Tough to beat for the money on this hood, as well as the HB69 for my other lens...see HB69 review. For half the money of the oem, I would purchase these again. The HB-37 fits my AFS Nikkor 55-200. In the storage position (flipped around) it fits snugly and I'm comfortable that it won't fall off. When using the hood, it's seats with just a slight amount of play, but again, I don't feel like it will fall off at any point. I don't know why the petal style hood (like the HB69) wasn't available for this price point for this lens, but oh well. It does it's job and it's inexpensive and reliable. Recommended.

So far so good

This hood fits the lens well and does what it is supposed to do. What more can you ask for?

Old School dual purpose Protection

It arrived on time and performs as anticipated. Installed for use it both protects the lens from physical damage and reduces or eliminates light from unwanted sources. Installed for storage (in reverse) it continues to protect the lens from getting beat up in kit bags or storage. It is light weight, tough, and snaps into place with one twist of the wrist. Yes. I would buy it again.
