3 Reviews of the Albany 400

By: Rachebunny  Reason: Other  Made in: 2008   Rating: 

Don't you just love a tent with colour-coded poles?! Have camped for over thirty years now (Hmmm - very young when started with my parents...) Anyway, we own a trailer tent but my son wanted to branch out on his own so we bought him this. Great for him and his pals to feel kind-of independent (even if still coming round to us for meals and to dry soggy socks.!)

Not great for family camping as would be a little cramped and I think 4 adults would certainly be pushing it a little.

Great having a sewn in ground sheet and after a week in the Highlands, also proven waterproofness!

Ideal for those who don't take everything inc the kitchen sink but, as I said certainly not recommended for families.

Very good tent, spacious for two people but do not think it is big enough for 4.

Very light weight, does not take up a lot of storage space, and fits in a small boot.

Have bought a canopy to go with it, it makes the living area twice the size.

Very easy to put up, sewn in ground sheet which keeps the tent warm.

We have the carpet and footprint and also the vango windbreak

New to camping and wasn't sure if we'd like it or not, so didn't want to spend a lot as we thought 2-3 nights maximum stay would be for us.

We found the tent easy to put up-even without the DVD! Liked the colour coding with the poles. Lightweight, stylish bag, easily fits under the spare bed for storage. Not too heavy.

No problems with rain or water coming in. Nice looking tent - cosy.

Although it is a 4-berth, we couldn't fit in a double airbed and 2 single airbeds, due to the inward slant at the base where the bedroom is. Fortunately, there was only 3 of us, so not a problem,although we did need to remove the curtain separator otherwise it would have been flapping across one of our faces!

We had a larder unit, table, 3 chairs, a luggable loo and the kitchen sink in the tent, and as the bedroom area is not full height you have to get changed in the main area, so we were a bit cramped.

Tent is lovely and ideal for a smaller party and people who don't take everything with them!

We loved our first visit camping and decided we wanted to stay longer than 2-3 nights so have now upgraded to an Outwell Montana 6 and have plenty of room in this.
