Very reliable metal hood, doesn't like other Japan lens hood in plastic of piece of cake. But no substitution only Leica.
I was supirised when I purchased my Leica 90mm f/2.5 Summarit-M Lens that Lens Hood is not included. I couldn't effectively shoot in the Florida sun without protection from the sun. The Lens hood & caps are solidly constructed and screw securely onto the lens. I did have a little bit of difficulty removing the outer ring on the lens that protects the threads that the hood screws onto. The outer ring was successfully removed with the aid of a set of filter wrenches that I ordered at the same time as the Lens Hood.
