What this is about
This Table is one out of several items from Coleman’s Mantis series which includes also a Mantis camping cot and a Mantis chair presented here in the site.
The table is fully collapsible, with a shock-corded frame which they describe as SpyderHub technology. This includes spring-loaded hubs that rotate to attach frame. See some details in the picture:
All the elements in the package are shown below. They include the carry bag on the left, two side poles, the accordion-type tabletop, and the frame.
When all the poles of the frame are in place as shown below, you add the two side poles and then the tabletop. There are clips that keep them all in place.
Below you can see how the tabletop looks, so this is a fabric with some slates/stays inside, not for warm items to be placed on it. This all reminds me a bit of the ALPS Mountaineering Dash Table.
Materials & other details
The frame tubes are steel, they did no provide more information about it. The tabletop is semi-rigid. There are plastic caps on the feet for stability on different types of terrain.
The hubs convert into cup holders by unfolding the top ring and bottom discs. So this is something totally unique, see how it looks:
The mentioned carry bag is a double-zip type with a hook-and-loop closure, with a wide opening for easy packing.

Who is it for
Regarding the weight, the table is on the heavy side, it weighs 10.12 lb (4.6 kg). But this is not a big deal, it is built as a camping table so you are not supposed to carry it anywhere.
Regarding the dimensions, they are good, you will see the numbers below. Note that it is quite tall, the tabletop is 70 cm above the ground.
The picture below shows how it looks in the camp. I see it best suited for a couple. It is good enough for dining, for playing cards, etc.
Regarding the packed size, the words Space Saving in the official name describe the fact that table is quite compact when in its carry bag. The dimensions are 26.5 x 7 x 5 inches (67 x 18 x 13 cm).
Regarding the price, there seem to be considerable differences when you compare some online sellers, you will see the links below so check from your side.
- Weight: 10.12 lb (4.6 kg).
- Dimensions (L x W x H): 31 x 26.5 x 27.5 in (79 x 67 x 70 cm).
