Hi i use lowepro lens cases but they are not the widest .I use a tamron 17-35mm lens which has a 77mm filter size on the front and when you also add the lens hood its quite large.So i had to opt for a lens pouch rather than a case these can be obtained from crookedimaging on ebay he sells that much photography stuff you could be there all day.
About tha camera armour i dont like the look of it but thats just my opinion i suppose it will protect the k10 no end .
Pentax k10d + battery grip
sigma 10-20mm
sigma 50mm 1:1 macro with x2 teleconverter
Tamron 17-35mm
Tamron 70-300mm 1:2 macro
Tokina 28-70mm 1:3 macro

Lowepro and Tamrac are well respected. My preference is Lowepro.

Avoid leather cases as they can often harbour fungal spores.

I've no experience of camera armour products so can't help there.
