What is in the name
The letter GCI in the name of the brand mean ‘great chair innovations’, so they are best known for their outdoor chairs, and there are several of them presented here in the site.
But here you have their camping/picnic table. So the number 25 in its name is the dimension of its tabletop in inches. The table has been on the market for many years already, and they have yet another smaller table 24 which they sell at the same place on Amazon. The word Large in the title/name is to avoid confusion.
From the picture below you get some idea about the size and height of the table:
The table is a folding type and this implies that there is no assembly and it is very easy to use. This is one of those that remain large in two dimensions as you realize from the picture below, but it folds very thin, only 2 inches (5 cm). So you can store it anywhere and it will fit in very narrow spaces.
All that you see is aluminum, so this is a great stuff for a camping table, you can put your pots with warm meals on it without concern.
The folding design is very unique, the tabletop splits into two parts, and the legs are telescoping. You will see how this works in the video:
Who is it for
Regarding the dimensions, you have a tabletop that measures 25 x 25 inches (64 x 64 cm), and it is 28.2 inches (72 cm) above ground. This is exactly the height of the table which I am using now when writing this text, so the table is quite high. It can be used as a standard dining table and also as a side table.
They write it is large enough for 4 people, but this is far from realistic. This is a great dining table for two users.
Regarding the weight and packed size, you have 6.2 lb (2.8 kg) and 24.8 x 24.3 x 2 inches (63 x 61.7 x 5 cm), respectively. So the table is indeed very light for its overall size, but its packed size is a bit less impressive.
It is portable to short distances of course, but for transportation, in general, you will need a car.
Regarding the price, in my view, it is more than fair for such a nicely built and unique table.
- Weight: 6.2 lb (2.8 kg).
- Weight capacity: 60 lb (27 kg).
- Dimensions (W x L x H): 25 x 25 x 28.2 in (64 x 64 x 72 cm).
- Packed size: 24.8 x 24.3 x 2 in (63 x 61.7 x 5 cm).
- Frame & tabletop material: aluminum.
