Radian 65 Question

Does anyone know of any real stores that carry the Radian 65 carseat? I'm pretty sure it's what we'll have to get in a few months for number 6 when number 7 needs her carseat. I'd just love to have a chance to see it and try it in the van before I buy it. Thanks.

Sometimes the online stores will list weight. I *thought* I saw somewhere that it weighed 20ish lbs.

I like the Radian we have in my parents car as a spare seat. It is excellent for airplane travel because it's so narrow. The only problem is, it is really heavy. The seat folds up into the back though, which means that you can easily pack it in a bag for carrying through the airport. I haven't done this yet, but I spoke to someone who did, and she said it was easier to travel with than the Marathon.

I don't know for sure, but I believe that it was a carseat carry bag that made it into a backpack. We have one that we've used for our Scenara before. The bag also has wheels so you can drag it along behind you in the airport. I'm pretty sure the Radian would fit in a medium to large size duffle bag.

The Radian 80 is basically the same seat, but tested to 80 lbs instead of 65. The problem is that the straps are still the same height, so unless you have a really short heavy kid, they outgrow the seat by height before weight, and your're not really getting any more use out of the 80 than the 65. Make sense?

Re: Radian 65 Question

I have a Radian 65 and that sucker is HEAVY!! It's a great seat and travels well because it becomes so compact. They sell a bag on the website to use when you travel to making carrying easier. I have read on many carseat boards that although the straps are the same height as a Marathon, kids tend to stay in the Radian longer because of how the seat is built. My DS was on the highest straps on his Roundabout and NEEDED to be moved out because he was too big. He is still below the slots at the same level on the Radian.
