It's a very nice, stable, and light table. But it is hard to fold the accordion top and wrestle everything back into the storage bag. It is much larger than I thought it would be, I wished I would have checked the measurements better before I ordered. However, it might be nice to have the extra sp...

Hold on. Before you go back to your browsing and assume this is just another guy who thinks he has all the power in the world in his hands just because he's reviewing a product take a minute to think about this table and the awesomeness it should be known by. It may not have sexy, rounded edges. It may not cook your food for you. It may not set itself up. That's fine.
It will change your life. That should be enough.
So far the only real drawback is that it cannot hold two 350lb women and a propane tank without caving in. Lets be realistic though, the only thing you'll have at your camp site is the propane tank. All this surface area is enough to set your baller camp stove and all your delicious prepared food on. After cooking it can be used to set your empty cans/bottles on for the rest of the night. This table doesn't care about sleeping out in the cold. It has a heart of aluminum and a nurturing soul. When you wake up in the morning you'll caress it's cold, baffled table top and remind it that your life was nothing before you met.

Took this camping just once so far and it seems great, very sturdy. Easy set up and take down. I also like having the bag to store the table. We set our cookstove on one end of the table and while the salmon filets grilled we had plenty of room for snacks and wine using the rest of the table. Great deal -- great table.

They certainly got the XL part correct! This table is big and very stable for a camp table. It's a bit tricky to get back in the bag after use. Not the best quality one might expect from ALPS, but so far so good.

I bought this table to serve as the foundation for an enclosure around my cats' litter boxes. I put a tablecloth over it and voila! It works like a charm! The table is lightweight, easy to assemble, and even attractive. It would make a great patio table, too.

It is a reasonably sturdy table, especially if you make sure it's set up on a good ground spot. Several people have been very pleased with this table and it will be able to hold a dutch oven.

Cast iron is only for car or horse camping, very heavy. Almost impossible to break, does rust, generally larger means wider and thus more stable, but except for dealing with the lid I've never had one tip or turn over if it has a flat bottom. Which is the kind to have, so you can use it anywhere. They cook great.

This entire table is aluminum, though it does not specifically state if the hinges are aluminum or steel. The bolts and attachments look as though they are normal steel bolts. The rest of the table is aluminum though.
