Is the Magma 15 sleeping bag designed asymmetrically?

Just bought the Magma 15. When laid out flat on its back, I notice the head opening is not centered on the rest of the bag; rather, it seems off by about a third. Is this by design (if so, why?) or is this a defect in production?  Thanks.

Thanks for reaching out!

We connected with the designer of this bag and they said that the sleeping bag is designed to be symmetrical, with the hood centered on the sleeping bag. They even took measurements of their personal Magma 15 to confirm that was the case. Additionally, they said that because it is so light and malleable, it requires really careful prepping when laying it down in order for it to be perfectly aligned.

Hopefully this helps, thanks!
