Wet-suite question - Salvimare Wet Drop Cell

Hi there!

I have bought on-line a wet-suite, it is Salvimar Wet Drop Cell 5.5 mm. It is really nice and fits perfectly but has one drawback.
It seems that the pants were storage in the wrong way and the material was squeezed/compressed in several places. Please check attached photos.
It looks like the neoprene foam is crushed in these points/lines (so it is not 5mm but something like 0.5mm).

Should I worry about this? Can it tear apart during use? Should I ask the seller to replace these pants?

Have a nice day!

Perhaps the creases will bounce back, they always do for my MD-heiwa suit. But then again, you paid a lot of money for that, so you expect it to arrive in perfect condition. Anything less than perfect can be labeled 'faulty product' imho. I'd take it back to the shop, even if just to remind them to take better care.

Really, some dive shops... I sometimes see the suits folded and stacked on top of each other in their overhead storage shelves. Makes me wonder if they even dive.
