Astral Abba Lemon??

I recently purchased an Astral Abba and am not sure if I like it, and don't know if I received a lemon or not. It's extremely poofy on the front where the kapok bladders are and basically just feels like a couple of air bags. A friend ordered Astral's Norge at the same time and his does not have NEARLY as much air in it as the Abba does. I was wondering if it was maybe because I'm at 8000ft in altitude but again the Norge seems fine.

I basically want to know if this is 'normal' or not and worth trying to exchange for a different Abba PFD or if I should just consider a different one all together.

I bought my wife a Abba last year, same thing very puffy up front to start but beginning to break in a little after a few trips.
