Default Filter advice

I'm looking for a UV filter to help with outdoor shots on overcast days.

I don't know much about filters. So any advice is apprecaited.

Here are the two I'm considering.

http://www.amazon.com/Hoya-Hardened-8-layer-Multi-Coated-Digital/dp/B001G7PMNQ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1354563791&sr=8-3&keywords=hoya+HD+Filter+UV

http://www.amazon.com/Tiffen-77HZE2A-77mm-Haze-2A-Filter/dp/B00004ZCI7/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1354563845&sr =1-2&keywords=77mm+haze+2a

My apologies to the moderators if posting these two links is not permitted.
I don't work for either of these two filter companies, nor do I work for the seller's website.

The Hoya. Always pick a filter that, somewhere in the description, it says "multi-coated", or something like that. Tiffen has multicoated filters, but that isn't one of them.
