Hey now, haven't seen this mentioned yet.
(Mostly my caps live in the Schoeps vials inside a padded pelican.)
But when I have caps on the kc5 cables in the bag for rapid deployment, I cover them with a foam windscreen and stuff that combo into a film cannister.
That's what I use for rapid end-of-night tear-down also.

One time at a big show with many CO tapers everyone left but me in the OTS and I look down and there are a pair of mics on the floor. I pick them up and if I remember correctly it was Todd R mics and I returned them to him. HE WAS VERY THANK FUL!!!
Everyday is a gift. Enjoy each one!

Someone (voltronic, I think) posted that some similar tubes are available from McMaster-Carr (https://www.mcmaster.com/ under shipping tubes). They wouldn't ship to Europe, so I haven't tried them myself, but I think a bunch of people here have bought them.

I use them for my 480s and 568s with a dessicant pack in the bottom. They've been great so far - highly recommended.

The 0.79" diameter tubes are the ones you want for Schoeps or any other 20 mm caps or bodies.  Get the shortest length for caps, but the longer models for caps + bodies, or really long ones would fit a shotgun.  The plastic on these twist tubes are a bit thicker and stiffer than the branded Schoeps ones, but they otherwise work the same.  I also put dessicant in mine, in the form of little cylinders I got somewhere.

The next diameter up, 0.87" is what you want for Neumann or other 22 mm mics.
