2 Reviews of the Baltimore 400

By: Fernman  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2011   Rating: 

After buying a Baltimore 300 and finding it a little bit cramped for our liking (see my review of it on this site) what did we do but buy the next size up, the Baltimore 400! The 300 is now going to be used for my solo camping only.

The 400 is just as easy to pitch as the 300, though it did not look as neat and shipshape as the 300, it had slack bits similar to those shown in a previous reviewer's photos.

What a difference it made to have an extra foot length in the sleeping compartment and an extra three feet in the living area!

We can now put our air mattresses front-to-back instead of only across, and this leaves room enough for bags etc at the sides, a gap to tread down the centre and a little bit by the bedroom doors. There is no more gingerly stepping over your partner to get in and out. On our model the divider is not completely removable but rolls up out of the way to the ceiling.

The living area of the 400 has bags of room compared to the 300, we had two folding chairs, a table, a shelf unit with a stove (which we carried outside to use), a couple of boxes of provisions, shoes, etc, and it still felt spacious. We adopted a policy of 'shoes off inside the tent' to keep the groundsheet clean, and what bits of grass etc found their way inside were easily swept up using a 87p dustpan and brush from Wilkinsons!

Because of our position on the camp site and the prevailing wind, we used the side door 98% of the time for going in and out. The low area under the sloping front entrance was ideal for storage. The side door too can be raised on poles if you want it as a canopy.

The rounded tent side means that rainwater will roll down over the top of the side door when you open it, but it's no real problem. A bigger annoyance is that there are no pegging points either side of the door, so that where you unzip it is slack and you need to use both hands, which is bothersome if you are carrying something.

I wasn't so keen on the curtains rolling downwards, I would prefer them to roll to the top. It made them a little bit more fiddly to 'close' as they don't hang down when unclipped (they fasten with velcro by the way) and when rolled down they tended to get damp from condensation that dripped down the plastic windows. Condensation was minimal, however, presumably helped by the from and rear vents. The rear one can be zipped closed on the outside if desired, as shown in the Easy Camp video on You Tube. Whereas the 300 sleeping compartment has insect netting the same size as the vent, the 400 has a panel the full width of the compartment.

Although the weather was quite cool where we were, with daytime maximums of about 16C, the built in groundsheet that clips up at the door bases kept the tent draught free as well as minimising entry by insects. There were a couple of wet spots on the floor after heavy rain, I suspect these were from the seam above the side windows, to which I shall be applying some sealant.

At the same time as the tent we bought the manufacturer's purpose-made footprint. This kept the underside of the tent spotless - far easier to clean the footprint than the groundsheet - but while its length was ok it was a few inches wider than the tent, so we had to fold its edges under to prevent rainwater running onto the footprint and collecting between that and the groundsheet.

Absolutely fantastic, lightweight and easy to pitch tent. We are a family of 4. We bought the carpet which makes it warm underfoot and footprint too which made wet packing away less messy. Lots of room for tables and chairs etc inside and bedrooms arent too small and are comfortably both doubles with the option to completely remove partition to make 1 HUGE bedroom. Lots of windows provide an airy feel and the front door opens up into a canopy with the 2 poles provided. The perfect first tent for us. Only downside is that due to having older children who no longer want to share, wish this tent came in a 6 berth option.
