There's nothing like a family trip to test your patience - and your physical endurance. Toting around a few suitcases, a stroller, diaper bag, purse and more can leave even the calmest parent feeling quite frazzled. Even if you are just taking a car trip to see the in-laws, moving your family from point A to point B is tough Luckly, there is a car seat that offers both superior safety as well as portability. Meet the Radian 80 from Sunshine Kids.
This convertible car seat is strong as can be. The Radian is the only car seat constructed from a steel alloy frame. Rear-facing, it can hold young kids weighing 5-33 pounds and forward-facing up to 80 pounds. Yet, its outer shell is surprisingly narrow. Despite the roomy seating area in the Radian 80, the small footprint allows you to fit three seats across, or install it in the center seat, leaving room for passengers on either side. This easy-to-use car seat even folds up flat, to a mere 7” depth. You can tote it through the airport in its Travel Bag (sold separately), stow it in your trunk, or even slide it under a bed. Installation is easy and the Radian 80 is aircraft approved.
With Sunshine Kids car seats, safety is the absolute priority. The 5-point harness has five slots for the shoulder straps and three slots at the crotch, securing your child completely. The Radian 80 positions your child’s center of gravity as low and as far back as possible on the vehicle’s seat, giving it extra stability. There’s also EPS foam at the head, torso, and seating area, which provides extra padding in case of impact. It’s a plus for comfort too. The seat includes a V-shaped tether for the rear-facing position (this is not the case for many other seats), a patented Lock-Tite harness clip, and it is LATCH equipped.
Now, the Radian 80 even comes with a SuperCool fabric option that we love. It’s incredibly breathable and will keep kids happy, cool, and dry on even the longest trips.
Spilling the Beans: The seat weighs in on the heavy side at 20 pounds, due to its steel frame. But since it folds flat, it’s better to think of it as just another piece of luggage. Note: Installing a car seat base is not a skill that comes naturally. Please visit a certified inspection station to learn about proper installation and to verify that your base is installed securely and correctly.
