    I think the market is rich tourists in Bali.

    I wonder how much of that money goes to the guys in the vid who are doing all the actual work...

    They are also selling a belt for $2,120.00. A belt, you know to hold your pants up with. That tells you what their target audience is.
    Oh, and check out their FAQ's page, wow.

    Very Germanic (no punt intended) way of doing business. When I lived in Germany in the early 90s, there was not such a thing as store returns or satisfaction guarantee. I wonder if anything changed since.

    Perhaps you can trust their products and no policy is needed?

    Things that have proven track record (tools, machinery, cars, optics) you can. Everything else, is like saying "trust me". Sometimes is better to have a happy customer than a bitter one and that seems to be the North American model (within reason). My jaw dropped when I learned that EMS would accept returns from customers (who clearly abused the policy) years after product was purchased and worn. But it also earned them many loyal customers (yours truly included) who count that the company will right the wrong if need be. Then you have brands like OR, Patagonia and others who offer lifetime warranty on their products.
