RX100 M6 Lensmate vs Magfilter?

Hello, newbie to the forums here.

About 2 months ago my six year old Olympus OM-D EM-5 died. After much research I purchased the Sony RX100 M6 as a replacement because I wanted something smaller and lighter.

I just returned from an 8-day hiking trip in the Wind River Range. So far I love the camera, but as expected I was sorely missing a polarizing filter. I knew there were third party add-ons but didn't have time to purchase one before the trip.

It seems the choices are Lensmate or Magfilter. I have read that Magfilters can fall off if bumped, or that that these cameras are not designed for repeated torque applied by screwing filters on and off with Lensmate.

Any thoughts on these two options or any others that I am unaware of?

(BTW, Lensmate told me they are coming out with an M6 specific model next month).
