1. Ledeak Portable Camping Table
This Ledeak table is both ultralight and ultra-affordable. So the weight is only 1.8 lb (0.85 kg). Yet its maximum load capacity is 50.7 lb (23 kg).
This is a heavy-duty aluminum alloy construction and as you realize it is among the lightest here in the list. Its packed size is equally impressive 16 x 5.5 x 2.5 inches (40 x 14 x 6 cm). So now you understand the meaning of the word ‘portable’ in its name.

The rating by Amazon customers is incredibly positive and it has scored 4.4/5 average rating as of the moment of writing this text.
2. Trekology Portable Camping Side Table
Here you have three tables with the weight range 1.8 – 3.2 lb (0.85 – 1.5 kg). Because of the lightest of them, I have added it to this position in the list.
All of them are with the same weight capacity 50 lb (23 kg), and they all have only two elements, the frame and the hardtop. Note that this is a painted aluminum hardtop, so there is no synthetic cover on it.
The packed size of the smallest of them is 16 x 5.5 x 2.5 inches
(40 x 14 x 6 cm). One more thing that makes them different from the others is that they are very affordable. Please follow the link to check for updates.

How to choose your collapsible camp table
Obviously, all the tables in the list are nicely packable and portable, but still, there are important differences. So here are a few tips that might help in choosing one.
The packed length
They all pack into an elongated bundle and this determines the way of transporting it. Some are so short when packed that they fit on a bicycle or on a motorbike, but some need a car for transportation.
When you inspect the weight (and the packed size as well), you realize that some of them are ultralight so that you can carry them on the trail attached to your backpack. So indeed, some of them are included in my list of ultralight backpacking tables.
Many of the tables in the list are with adjustable legs. In some cases you have several specific positions for the length, but some models can have any length within the given range. Such a type is perfect for camps where the ground is rarely flat. So you can make the table perfectly horizontal no matter what the type of ground you have.
You have tables here with the tabletop large enough for four people, but most of them are better suited for two.
You will notice several types of materials used for the tabletop. Some are aluminum, some are MDF, and some are bamboo. No doubt that aluminum is the best and the lightest option.
This is partly related to the legs adjustability mentioned above. This means that some of the tables are truly versatile and you can use them as side tables as well as dining tables.
There are huge differences in prices, and this is mainly in the group of the ultralight tables. Here you have some top brands in this industry, with great guarantee conditions and this adds to the price.
So this was my list with collapsible outdoor tables. It will be updated whenever I find a table that is worth adding to the list. You might want to bookmark this text and check occasionally.
