    It'll probably be hard to find a cover that fits those filters. Perhaps you can find a 3D printed cover on eBay.

    Most covers I see are made to fit the camera with the UV filter attached. The OP's filter is wider than the UV filter.

    I bought the Neewer set and my cover doesn't fit over them either. So I'm on the hunt as well.

    If you have access to a 3D printer, this design works fairly well. You can also take the file and have it commercially printed. As msinger suggests, you can probably find one on eBay.

    Ive contacted a guy on eBay from Colorado that 3D prints them. Sent him the dimensions for the Neewer filters as he asked and am awaiting a response on the possibility of him making one up and the cost.
