How do I know if I have the right size bag for my pipes?

I have a set of Mccallum pipes on a small bag. It feels like I am using more air than the bag has to play with with. Do I need to move up to an extended small bag or a medium to solve this problem? I play with another piper who has the same pipes with a medium bag, he doesn't seem to be working nearley as hard as me to play. I change many colors of red an purple and he doesnt change at all. We have both been playing for about 2 years now. I have checked the bag and pipes for leaks and have found none.
I would appreciate any advice you have to offer.
