Re: So I contacted Peak Design and PolarPro about the same problem...

This is something fairly important to me; I constantly see people talk about how you can get the same for half the price on Amazon or whatever, but nobody considers anything beyond that.
Peak Design is a great example here; they make lots of well-made stuff with plenty of copycats.

Obviously they can do it cheaper; PD already did the R&D and initial marketing of the concept for them, cheaper options just piggyback off that.
PD also seems to put a lot of effort into support; from informational videos showing the features of their gear, to direct customer support.

I wish more people at least considered this when making their choice. Not saying that you should never get the cheaper option; as long as you make that choice conscious of what it entails, I have no issues with it.
