Creases in brand new Xcel suit?

Postby lodger » Wed Nov 25, 2015 10:48 am

Just bought my first winter suit. It has some nasty creases and compression marks from the zipper and neck toggle. Image below.

Retailer insists these will come out with use and are normal. Anyone confirm if this is ok? Seems a bit rum on an fairly expensive suit!

(Aware the retailer is probably on the board!)

it'll be fine, get it wet a few times, wash it out and hang it up, the crease will drop out no worries. Once you have put it on and taken it off a few times it'll have had a good stretch and that'll help too.

creases are normal - however only for a decent suit will they come out - cheap or faulty neoprene can crease permanently

sure it will not be a problem with xcel
