As far as serving it's purpose of blocking extra light and protecting your lens, it comes close. The downside is that you can't put your lens cap back on unless you take off the hood. This is quite annoying, and makes it so you can't just leave the hood on. Also the hood starts to vignette around 25mm on the 18-55 kit lens. As for the cleaning kit, the solution works great but the rag is absolute rubbish. It leaves little fibers all over the glass. If I bought this again, I would throw the rag away before ever using it. The cap keeper is awesome definitely the best part of this buy.
Overall, this kit gets the job done, pretty much. For the price, it is definitely worth it, just make sure you have a good cloth to use and don't count on the one included. Right now, I am using the little black one that comes with Apple laptops.
