When your camera is in a padded bag, what do you expect to protect it against by keeping the lens hood on? It only slows you down if you have to grab your camera and use it. Besides, you already have a filter over the lens, so all you are doing by capping it is protecting the filter anyway, not the lens. If a wee bit of dust gets on the filter, wipe it off with a clean cloth.
