Default Best way to carry filters

I'm in the middle of a vacation and I carry a UV filter, circular polarizer, a star filter and a soft focus filter. What's the most efficient way to pack filters? Right now, I have the individual plastic boxes my B&W filters came in.

I use a LowePro S&F Filter Pouch 100 to haul my filters around

For now it is stuffed with 4 x 4*6 Lee filters, 1 x 4*4 Lee filter, 1 Cokin Z-pro holder with 67mm and 77mm rings and 2 polarizers.

It will hang on a belt or bag strap, and fits onto other Lowepro S&F bags that have the S&F attachment points sown on them.

I found the filter case shortly after getting a LowePro S&F Lens Exchange case 200 given to me.
Quite useful for swapping between two lenses on the go.

Imaging is all about light and your ability to sculpt it.
Equipment is just a secondary nuisance.

When I used to carry around a bunch of filters, I would just stack them onto one another, put a cheap lens cap over one end of the stack, and put a cheap fliter on the other end.

I have a filter "wallet" that I got a few years back from Adorama. But I no longer carry a lot of filters -- I carry one CPL that fits my standard and tele zooms and one ND8 that does the same. So I now carry them in the plastic boxes they shipped in, and have a bunch of filters that I never use in the wallet, which I leave at home.
