I assume you're talking primarily about front caps.  I only have a cap on my
90 'cron, because it has a collapsible shade.  My 35 and 50 live without
them, as the hoods are rigid.  I just drop those lenses front-element down
into my bag.  With the 90, I either drop the cap into a spare compartment in
my bag or stick it in my pocket.

For rear caps, I've epoxied a couple of pairs together back-to-back to make
two-sided caps.  It noticeably speeds up lens changes.

No hissing :-)
