Anyone who has been backpacking and is used to having a couple of pillows at home and/or sleeps on their side will know about the pillow problem. You obviously can't take pillows from home as they will fill your rucksack and weigh you down. Ultra compressible pillows just compress when you lie on them and so are useless. Inflatable pillows have the wrong kind of spring in them, are not soft or high enough for a side-sleeper and a stack of two won't stay put.
This system pretty much solves that. It's essentially a compressible hollowfill pillow in a soft polycotten case with a pocket under the padding for stuffing things into. You could use spare clothes, jackets etc if you're going ultra-light or Decathlon's own inflatable pillow isn't exactly heavy and fits exactly. This means you can more than double the thickness of the pillow whilst always having a soft and comfy side for your face.
It weighs about 200grams and expands to about the size of a household cushion so it's not as big as a proper pillow but I guess that's not going to be possible at any kind of sensible weight or size.
Overall a great bit of kit for the less hard-core of us who want to be comfortable when backpacking.

Really love the design - allows you to dictate your own pillow thickness due to whatever you can fit into the sleeve. It would be really useful if the pillow came supplied with a waterproof bag as I used this on my ML expedition and even though it was packed into my "waterproof" rucksack, this unfortunatly let in some water (due to the torrential snowdonian downpours) meaning it got slightly wet - a waterproof bag would've been amazing!
