Pros Strong steel design, good height, lots of space, folds up nicely, valueLightweight for its size, portable, lots of surface space, easy to setupInexpensive, lightweight for sizeEasy to set up, sturdy, metal top isn't susceptible to sparks or flames, cool colorsLightweight, aluminum, corrosion-resistant, lots of shelves
Cons Narrow, needs flat ground, unstable if weighted unevenlyShort for cooking, non-adjustable legs, durability concernsA little wobbly, extra steps to set up, can't place knees underneathSmall, heavy for backpacking, colored table top shows scratchesWobbly, durability issues, weak
Bottom Line Counter space galore was our first impression right out of the boxNot a heavyweight regarding durability, but this table is spacious and perfect for dining and card playingIf basic function is all that is necessary, this table fulfills that need at an affordable priceOne of the very few pack tables with a metal top, this mini table is more affordable than some of its competitionWe were intrigued with its look and design, but underwhelmed with its performance
