Good for smaller people -

The table and chairs are a delight to fit in the back of our LR Discovery. You will need a flat surface like a parking lot as the folding seats require a firm base. Agree with other reviews this is not for large people. Fold out is easy and set up takes under 2 minutes. A bit flimsy but works fine. Easy to carry.
Works as intened -
By: Kerdog from Melbourn, FL
The table is easy to use and very attractive. It is lightweight, but it appears to be less sturdy than desired because of it. A necessary tale gait companion.

This is a great table for any outdoor activities. We had a plastic one and used it for tailgating, camping and just as extra seating for a picnic or fishing. This is a 100% better! It is the same functional quality, but it is so much nicer. The teak wood is beautiful! Now we can be in style...even when we aren't at home!
Great for road trips -
This table is very sturdy and perfect to carry on short road trips for a picnic at any location, Packs up nicely for travel.
Does not meet Orvis quality expectation -
By: FrankiesGirl from South Shore , MA
The Portable Wooden Picnic table was purchased as a gift. We were embarrased when the gift was opened and revealed the broken handle and nicked wood. The photo shows a nice finish and rich color which was not the case with our gift purchase. Our suggestion to Orvis would be to remove this inferior product from your catalog.
Not sturdy and too small -
By: River219 from Chattanooga, TN
I received this as a gift and found the picnic table way too smalll and uncortable for an average size adult (6 feet, 160 pounds) to sit. It also seems a little unsteady when finally put together. Clever idea but poor construction!
terrific design -
By: lusso from Potlatch, Idaho
This is a wonderful product with a truly ingenious, compact design. It is easy to use and fits beautifully in the trunk of our sports car. It remains to be seen how well it stands up to use, but we are eagerly anticipating many lovely outings without the need to find an already existing picnic area.
Too small -
The overall quality is fine however, for average adults, the size is too small to sit comfortably. It's a good size for kids. Also, it's a little too light-weight for adults.

A very civilized picnic! -
I ordered these tables for our grown children because we used one like it while visiting friends in Canada. Their product came from a Swedish company. My only concern is the life of the plastic devices that are supposed to secure the legs. If one gets broken over time, what will they do? I hope our family will have many years of fun with this product and that the quality will equal my long time connection with Orvis, since we lived in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Good but too small for adults. -
I love the table for kids but it's not good for an adult to sit. This table is too short.
