I think it's a stretch to say Kentmere 400 is similar to HP5. GLWS
Leica M2, Olympus 35RC, Olympus 35EC, Olympus Trip 35
Think it has a similar soft toe to HP5+ so rating it at 400 ISO is not outlandish, YMMV.

I bought some film from Karl, hassle free transaction & fast shipping. Recommended seller.
Sponsored Ad. (Subscribers to APUG have the option to remove this ad.)
At school, the students are processing Kentmere using D-76 in the same drums as HP-5+ and the results are almost indistinguishable. The Kentmere has a bit more grain. So it is similar to HP-5+.
There are differences, I'm sure, but to my eyes the negatives from Kentmere are excellent and the price is right compared to HP-5+
Question to danfogel: Have you ever shot and developed Kentmere and compared the results to HP-5+?
Or, are you making your statement based on comments made by others?
I say this not to start a flame or to promote the sale of Kentmere (I have only a few rolls left to sell).

You could (should?) also try Ilford Pan 400, very cheap and very similar to HP5!
Ilford Pan 400
I have not seen this film available in the USA.

No, Karl, Ilford Pan 400 is not a product available in the U.S. The nearest thing would probably be Kentmere 400; or Ultrafine Xtreme 400 is rumored to be Ilford Pan 400.
I fairly frequently use pan400 for night shots, usually pushing to 1600+ , processing an hour in r09, I am quite happy with it.
Some sample I have:
I would not say very cheap, it is moderately priced. Costs about 3.5 gbp per a 35mm roll.
