Just when we thought Britax was our only choice for a quality grow-with me car seat we were introduced to Sunshine Kids from a friend. We LOVE this car seat! (Especially after starting out with an inexpensive baby trend seat.)

Reasons to love:
*SOLID construction. Steel, I believe. This car seat is going nowhere!
*Cotton Cover (the Ventura pattern). Our first car seat had a polyester cover and baby broke out everywhere. Very few (quality) seats have cotton covers.
*Easy to install. My husband had no problems whatsoever with the installation. (He is pretty handy, so someone less inclined may have trouble, I don't know?) The latch system is amazing.
*The straps are easily adjustable when forward facing. It can be a little more tricky if you're in a smaller vehicle and the base is pressed against the seat, but it can still be done.
*Lots of room to grow. Our little one out-grew her first seat in a matter of a few months. The seat comes with removable support cushions and lots of extra strap. This seat will most likely last until she moves into a booster/another baby needs it.
*'Better' for long babies. If you have a long baby, you understand when I say rear-facing is a pain! Yes, it is the safest position for your baby, and yes, you should keep them that was for as long as possible, but this is an absolute pain if your baby is long! This seat was significantly better for her long legs, but it still wasn't perfect. I doubt any rear-facing seat is though.
*The seat is narrower than most car seats. We have a jetta wagon, which is quite small, and I could still sit in the back with the car seat in the middle. You could also fit two right next to each other if need be (twins anyone?).

Drawbacks/Concerns:
*While the seat is narrow and great for small cars, it is also tall. As is my husband (6'5"), so when the seat is rear-facing he wasn't able to recline/push back his seat as far as he'd like. As we have a small car I wouldn't say this is a total drawback, but many people with smaller cars choose this seat because it's narrower than most, so I think this concern is worth mentioning. I will also add this is no longer a problem now that baby is forward facing.
*It is heavy. There's no way to make something this solid and have it be super-light. It's not so much a problem for us as we have one car. We have yet to use the carry-strap, but I doubt it'll be much use. Overall, worth the weight.
*Though the cover is cotton, we had a little trouble removing it from the seat base. Whereas there are clips to remove it from the upper seat and those come off with ease, there's some sort of button/button-hole removal trick to the base. It seemed there was no way the fabric would go over the button, but in the end it did (not before significant tugging and finagling of fabric).
*Though I believe a newborn would fit comfortably, I would prefer something a little more snug/cocoon-like for one so little. Not really a drawback, just a preference. Despite my earlier complaint about babytrend, having a portable bucket seat was quite nice with a newborn infant. I can't imagine having to wake baby to get in and out of seat every time we went somewhere... But on the other hand it might have helped teach baby to sleep through anything, which would really be nice right about now. I'm going to mark this as another preference rather than con.
*We were unable to find an actual store that carried this! Granted, online is most often cheaper, but we do like to support our local businesses.

Overall, the pros far outweigh the cons for us. We plan to stick with Sunshine Kids, and highly recommend them to others!

Our first bad mojo with this seat was that three months the plastic on the chest buckle broke. I wrote the company and got a response that the chest buckle is just for positioning and the seat was still useable. We did keep using it (it was so darned expensive!), but I was still nervous every time so it got demoted to the go-to-work car that our son only occasionally rides in. Then, when our son was 2 1/2 and 38 pounds, the shoulder straps got too tight, but we couldn't let them out and couldn't figure out why-- there was extra room on the strap, but something was catching in there. So even though it should have been good for another 40 pounds we had to replace it.Also, the seat is very, very heavy, so moving it from one car to another or taking the cover off to wash it was a huge pain that always left me with a bruise of some kind, usually on the shin. I can't imagine anyone trying to travel with it. I loved the Britax we used with our first child and should have bought that again (but my mom told me this one was "the safest." Why did I listen?!) Anyway, if you're going to shell out, get a Britax. Or just get whatever's on sale, all the seats have to conform to the same safety standards anyway. Since the boy is almost booster-sized we replaced this seat with the cheapest Graco at [...], and not only was that seat it 1/3 of the price, it is also plushier, much more manageable and has cup holders, which my son is strangely extremely excited about ("my new seat! It has holes for toys!"). Anyway I would not recommend the Radian or buy from this company again.

Comments about Sunshine Kids Radian XTSL Convertible Car Seat (Nitro):

I purchased this car seat for my 9 month old baby girl. She appears very comfortable in it. The car seat is very heavy. It was a breeze to install. I love how this car seat is not bulky as some of the others on the market.

Comments about Sunshine Kids RadianXTSL Convertible Car Seat (Flora):

This car seat is a nice size (narrow in width) to accommodate more than 2 car seats in a bench seat in my vehicle. It has been easy to clean after spills of ice cream and drinks and easy for my 3 year old to get in and out of by herself. The only difficult component I have found is adjusting the head height when a smaller or taller child sits in it, but this is not something I have to do often. I would buy this car seat again.

    Comments about Sunshine Kids Radian XTSL Convertible Car Seat (Shadow):

    Everyone else in my family purchased a Britax, I purchased SK. Everyone is jealous because this car seat provides my toddler with much more freedom to move, and she seems to be a lot happier as a result. It's still a pretty solid product, but just doesn't cover the child as much. The only con is the strap for rear portion of the seat cannot be used in my car.

      Comments about Sunshine Kids Radian XTSL Convertible Car Seat (Shadow):

      I'm very happy with this car seat. It fits between my two Britax seats because of its narrow profile. I didn't think I would be able to fit three seats across in my midsize SUV so I was thrilled to find this seat. In addition, the fabric is an exact match to my Britax Boulevard car seats.
