What this is about
This Snow Peak Folding Bench is from their collection of camping furniture, and this model is with a soft seat so it should not be mixed with their other bench with a bamboo seat. This is an incredibly easy to use construction that comes ready to use. There is no assembly of any type, you open it and close in a couple of seconds.
The picture below shows how it folds, so the dimensions in this state are 43.1 x 18.5 x 2.5 inches (109 x 47 x 6.4 cm). As you see, it is incredibly thin so it will not take much space when you store it somewhere, or when you transport it in the car.
The side view shows a bit more. From this angle it looks like a stool. The cool feature is the following. When you sit on it, the more pressure the more tension in the fabric. The same principle you have in their Snow Peak High Tension Cot that is described here in the site.
The frame is an aluminum zinc die-cast, and the seat is a polyester. They make it in red and gray.
The feet visible in pictures are a synthetic rubber. Note that they are narrow so I would not use the bench in a floored family camping tent.
On their sites they write that they submit their products to the highest standards of engineering and testing. This should ensure a long-lasting durability even in the most challenging outdoor conditions.
Here is the exact statement from them: “If you ever find that one of our products doesn’t function properly, simply contact Snow Peak User Services, or take it to one of our certified dealers. If we find that the product didn’t live up to our standards, we’ll repair it or exchange it free of charge. For more details, view our Warranty.“
The bench is built in China, and all eventual repairs take place in Japan. You can rely on their warranty, this is a reliable brand with high standards and they have been around for decades already. So you know what you are buying.
Who is it for
Regarding the capacity, surprisingly, they do not give any number. I asked them and they informed me that they “have no information available in regards to a weight limit for this item.”
Regarding the dimensions, the picture below shows how it looks in the camp. You have 43.1 inches (109 cm) length and this is enough for two adults. The seat is 14.1 inches (36 cm) high so this is low enough even for kids.
Regarding the weight, this is a very light bench, it weighs only 4.4 lb (2 kg). In view of its space for two people, this is quite remarkable.
You have already seen its packed size, so if used outdoor, this is an item for places with a car access.
- Weight: 4.4 lb (2 kg).
- Dimensions (L x W x H): 43.1 x 13 x 14.1 in (109 x 33 x 36 cm).
- Folded dimensions: 43.1 x 18.5 x 2.5 in (109 x 47 x 6.4 cm).
- Seat height: 14.1 in (36 cm).
