Portable Folding Picnic Table Stretches To Hold More People

You're shopping for a cool little portable table that you can bring to picnics, campings and afternoons at the beach.  And you can't decide whether to get the big one or the small one. With the Expandable Portable Table, you don't need to make the choice.

Able to go from small to big in a jiffy, the table features an expandable frame that lets you slip in a second tabletop.  That way, you can bring both a four-seat and a six-seat table to your next outdoor jaunt, allowing you to be ready whether you're going solo or with a group.

The Expandable Portable Table consists of three pieces: a single-piece expanding slide-out frame and two separate tabletops (28 inches and 20 inches). Made from aluminum, it's both lightweight and sturdy, all while standing up to harsh outdoor elements.  The legs feature locking steel corner braces, allowing it to stay firm and stable even when weighed down by heft up to 60 pounds.

Everything sets up without tools or complicated assembly, so you can get the table ready for a meal quickly.  And when you're done, just take apart the different pieces, fold each individually and slip them into the included bag.  Oh yeah, make sure to hose it down first -- lest you like walking around with a table full of dried up ketchup and gravy splotches.  When closed, the whole thing measures a compact 30 x 11.5 x 4 inches and weighs a light 12 pounds.

Hammacher Schlemmer has the Expandable Portable Table available.  Price is $79.95.
