I recently upgraded from a 10-year-old regular to this large. TOTALLY worth it. The print is fun!!
One note. I was crazy disappointed with the pillow when it arrived. It looked so limp! So non-fluffed! I left it out of its package, uncompressed, to "loft," for DAYS. It did nothing. I shook it. I punched it. I tenderly asked it to perk up a bit. Still nothing. I placed it next my hubby's same size (large) pillow purchased 3 years ago. DEFINITELY the new one was wimpy. I threatened to return it. Then I actually read the tag and washed it, running it through the dryer with a tennis ball like I do my down things. BINGO, fluffy pillow. Make sure you wash it, people. :)

The pillow proved to be very comfortable during my 8-day international trip. I had no problems rolling and un-rolling it when necessary, but if you have long nails/acrylics I suggest getting someone else to roll it for you. My only issue was that the stuffing in the pillow generated a lot of heat while I was using it. The planes and airports I was in were stuffy and hot already, so it's not 100% the pillow's fault, but a cooling gel or a better ventilated foam would have greatly improved my comfort level. I had to use the cheap thin airplane pillow on top of this one just to keep my cheek from getting sweaty.
I ordered the Medium size pillow for some upcoming international flights and hotel stays, and I'm very happy with the size. It's small enough to use comfortably on a plane and large enough to use in hotels and for airport naps. I'm checking a bag so my carry-on will have plenty of room for the pillow to fit inside, but it is also the perfect size to rest/secure on top of my carry-on if necessary.
The weight difference is only 2oz, but the real difference in size is about 1.5 inches wider and longer. The thickness is just about the same, but like others have mentioned, the small denim color is denser, giving it a slightly firmer feel. I'm not sure if the other colors in small are firmer, or just the denim. I really like both, but will probably use the small more often. I'll keep both, since they're cheap enough to have a backup or loaner.
Note, I did not wash these, as others have said! I just fluffed them for about 30 seconds.
As a couple of other reviewers have mentioned, the stitching in a couple places looks a bit sketchy (last picture), so I'll probably refrain from machine washing them unless it's a last ditch type of situation. Still, I believe they'll hold up if you're gentle with them. Also, I had to untie and re-tie the compression cord, because it was too tight to allow for easy rolling, and was leading to some fabric stretching and stress on the stitching. It seems much easier to roll and compress now.
