    Carry straps for Radian

    We traveled with our Radian 80 recently and my husband sweated all the way through the airport and growled. It worked great on the plane, however! So, as we are going to Spain in a month for Christmas, I figured I'd better get some carry straps. My question, is it better to have two to use it as a backpack or just the one? Anyone BTDT?

    Re: Carry straps for Radian

    I just bought two, but I have yet to try them. I bought them on ebay

    I found them to be the cheapest $6.99 plus 2.31 for shipping.

    The 80 comes w/ one, if you buy a 2nd one you can wear it on your back.

    Oh two, definitely. It's so easy with two.

    Just don't let the seat fall over on them...it will smash the clip and it broke in two. I just got the free replacement from SK yesterday. Hopefully that was just a fluke!

    The 80 comes with a carry strap? Are you sure about that. I didn't see one and the instructions noted that you have to purchase carry straps separately.

    Yep, the 80 definitely comes with a strap. We have 4 Radian80's and they all came with one strap.

    Definitely use two instead of one. Carrying it like a backpack is sooo much easier and you can leave the straps on when installing the seat. That way you won't lose them when on vacation.
