Hello. First off, if you bought the shade in the last 30 days, we have an unconditional guarantee so you could return it for a full refund.
That said we take issue with your comments about our product. We have the only shade on the market for DJI controllers that truly and actually blocks glare and reflection on the surface of the iPad. The other shade you reference does not block glare and reflection. In fact a 90 degree shade must be 16-20"high to accomplish what the PadHat does in 8".
Jim Bonnardel, Owner DIY Drones.com and President of Silent Electric Flyers of San Diego sent this to us unsolicited:
"I wanted to comment on the perfect angle of the PadHat.
There are a few guys showing up at the field with other brand shades, as well as home made ones.
Everyone complains about the glare and reflection. With the other shades, at a 90 degree angle, the screens are a perfect mirror showing the pilot their own reflection.
HoodiVision shades have that perfect angle that completely eliminates that. As soon as I show them my shades, they realize that the PadHat is the best out there."
Here is Jim using the PadHat with his Inspire 1

The "bowing" you referred to is by design so that the shade opens wider for better hand access.
The Hook velcro pieces to attach to the rear sides of the iPad or case are super thin, hold strongly and are easily removed. They were added as a request by pilots.
Our PadHat shades are used by pros all over the world ands are currently on a shoot in Chernobyl, Russia by documentary filmmaker Philip Grossman accompanied by DJI personnel.

The HoodiVision PadHat is the number 1 shade for pilots. Nothing else comes close.
