Easy Camp Palmdale 400 (2022)
The Easy Camp Palmdale is a cracking bit of kit; compact but spacious and very well priced. It is the perfect tent for a first-time camper, whether it be for a family holiday or a festival the Palmdale is a great choice. The three zoned tunnel tent really helps to create the set up you desire: an open canopy section gives you enough room to cook under cover, the living area is big enough for a table and chairs and the sleeping compartment is flexible to your requirements. The tent is available in four different sizes (300, 400, 500 & 600) so you can pick and choose what is the right model for you. The 300, 400 & 500 sizes are designed to be for couples or small families who want something compact and perfect for short weekends. Whereas the 600 model has a larger living space for when it rains which tends to be better for family camping.
A solid 3,000mm HH waterproof rating is a great spec for the price point and as it has a sewn-in groundsheet the tent inside is sealed away from the wind and rain. The bedroom compartment is made from Easy camp’s sleep tight material to reduce early morning light and hopefully you don’t wake you when the sun rises. The inner also has storage pockets built into the tent to allow you to locate torches and phones in the middle of the night. Windows are located on either side of the tent to give a view outside and curtains can toggle up into place to provide privacy when needed. Covered ventilation panels are located behind the bedroom section at each end of the tent to increase airflow and help reduce condensation. A toggled inner divider splits up the bedroom section and can be easily removed to make one big sleeping space.
A drop-down front door into the living area gives trip free access into the tent and makes it easier for pushchairs to enter. This same entrance has a mesh door built into it so you can increase the airflow inside the tent without having any insects join the party. The pre-angled poles help to increase the internal headroom and make the awning feel more spacious in relation to the floorplan.
The Easy Camp Palmdale has to be the best valued tent in its range and when you compare it to other similar brands it still comes out on top for features as well as the price.
