Some folding picnic tables are made to be easily carried anywhere, while other fold up to become benches. The type you get depends on your needs. If the idea is to go to the park, beach, or camp site, then the type that folds up into a carrying case is the way to go. If however, the table is destined for the backyard for only occasional use, the type that becomes a bench is a good option.

One possible issue with either type of these tables, is that they may be less comfortable to sit on then their non-collapsible counterparts. In other words, making the table more practical may mean making some compromises.
