What this Coleman Living Collection Bench is about
This is a very easy to use folding construction, so there is no assembly. You open or close this bench in seconds. The picture below shows how it looks when folded. As you realize, it is very thin. Observe the carry straps on the top.
But there are frames around its seat and its backrest, and those determine its folded size in the other two dimensions. The folded dimensions are 42.25 x 24 x 5 inches (107 x 61 x 13 cm).
Note that the word Bench in the title is a part of its official name. One could also describe it as a double-wide chair because of its backrest and armrests. There are several benches here in the site, and they are typically without a backrest.
The frame includes several U-shaped aluminum tubes, so you have two long bars on the ground. This is very good because weight is distributed and the bench is unlikely to sink if you use it on a soft ground. The design is also floor-friendly.
There are locking mechanisms on the two side, one is shown below, they stabilize the backrest.
Yet another great feature here is its wood armrests. They have the same material used in the mentioned chairs from this Living Collection. The fabric is a polyester.
Who is it for
Regarding the dimensions, you have space for two adults, the bench measures (L x W x H) 42.5 x 22.8 x 26.4 inches (108 x 58 x 67 cm).
Regarding the capacity, the bench is officially for up to 450 lb (204 kg). Being sized for two users, this should be enough unless they are both very heavy.
Regarding the weight, this bench is surprisingly light, it weighs only 8.4 lb (3.8 kg).
As for the packed size, you have already seen it, so it is quite bulky but thin. But this is a double-wide item so this is expected.
Regarding the price, it can be described as reasonable for a chair/bench for two people. The other products from this Collection are relatively more expensive.
