    I'm curious why Pan 400 film is not available in the USA and what if anything is similar to this product. Anyone know?

    No it's a different film as is the Pan 100 (compared to FP4). While most films from a manufacturer have some resemblances these are not quite as advanced tecnologically as FP4 & HP5 so cheaper to manufacture. So the Pan 400 won't push process as well as HP5.
