Rated 4 out of 5 by MGGumby Needs a shoulder strap.
I would have given it 5 stars except for the fact that it doesn't have a shoulder strap. I bought it to go to music festivals and you usually have to walk pretty far from your parking space and have food and chairs to carry too. It's a bit clumsy to carry when you have your hands full and would benefit from the addition of a detachable shoulder strap or a clip at each end to attach to the strap on your camp chair. Overall, it was a good purchase and I'll work out the details on how to carry it easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewtonSue Great table - just what I had hoped for
This table is easy to set up and dismantle, yet is sturdy and substantial. I was looking for something to take to the beach and to Tanglewood and this completely fits the bill. My only complaint is that I wish the carry bag had a shoulder strap. The handles do fit over my shoulder but are shorter than I'd like. But, otherwise, this is a great product for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoCACutie VERY nice quality
It comes with a tote-type carry bag that reads LL Bean on the outside. The bag is a bit flimsy, but its really for storage so its not that critical.
The table itself unfolds very easily, is made of aluminum and the LL Bean on the table I have is not as pronounced as its shown in the photo. Its the perfect height for a camp chair and seems very sturdy. Very happy with my table!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanFanInOhio Nice, packable table
I recently bought two of these and used them once already. They are very easy to set up and are very stable/sturdy. I've not had much weight on them but expect they can certainly hold the amount they're rated at. I am pleased with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnotherManatee Easy to set up, small package, nice size
I will probably buy a second one of these.
This table comes in a pretty small zippered bag with handles ... very nice for car camping, though more heavy than you'd want for backpacking, even if you thought you'd like to strap it to your pack.
I set it up in about 2 minutes. It's very easy and intuitive. If you lose the handy directions (included), you'd figure out how to put it together in a nanosecond.
The table is a perfect size for use as a side table. Plenty of space for a plate, a drink, a cellphone, with space to spare.
It is definitely more stable along one axis. By this I mean that if you grab the table by the top and try to lift it with your hands on the sides that have all the slats' ends, it will be squidgy because the tabletop ? which unrolls and snaps in place ? isn't structurally stiffened underneath those edges. If you grab the other two sides (I.e., grab along the length of the slats, not the edges), it's solid. This is only an issue when lifting or re-positioning the table. Just sitting there, it's rock-solid and will support all your stuff, no question.
I'm very happy with this item and would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nereid So Good, We've Already Ordered a Second One!
We took this little table on our first motorcycle-hammock-camping tour this March. We used it as a nice, flat stable base to operate our Biolite stove on. It was great. It weighs exactly 5 pounds, fits its carry bag easily, can be stowed in a motorcycle pannier, and is at least fire-resistant enough to be used for a stove (don't put it in fire!)... We like it so much for motorcycle touring, we've already ordered a second one, which we intend to use as an actual side table (between our little camp chairs, to put our food and drinks on). If you like small size, portability, and the convenience of easy-clean metal, this table is for you!

by CaryPilot Nice little table
Since it's still winter, I haven't used this table while camping yet, but it shows great promise. It is very similar to a larger table that I've had for years, which has given me great service. After setting this smaller one up and examining it closely, I have no reason to believe that this smaller version will be any different. It is easy to set up, very sturdy, and easy to take down to store in its bag (which incidentally is also pretty sturdy and should last).
It's the ideal size and height for a side table beside a camping chair. When packed in its bag, it is small, light, and easily packed with other camping gear. I primarily camp with my airplane, where both size and weight are critical items, even for those of us who are "glampers". So although I like the luxury and comfort of having everything including the kitchen sink when camping, I have to be picky about what I include. This little table will be very handy while fitting within my criteria concerning size and weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steamguy Excellent Value & Sturdy
Purchased one table and found it to be exactly as promised. I used it at a tailgate and everyone was asking about it. I plan to purchase a few more very soon. It folds up nicely and has a handy carrying case. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LivingTheLoafLife Sturdy
We got this table to use in the vestibule of our LL Bean King Dome tent. Very pleased with its compact size when stored in the accompanying bag. Happy to say that after we assembled it (which is remarkably easy), it fit back into the bag without any struggles. Once assembled it is very sturdy and stable. Perfect for evening tea.
