The folding/travel feature is theoretically nice, but the seat is SO STINKING HEAVY that it's really no easier to carry than our (lighter) Britax we have in the other car. Chest clip and straps are exceptionally easy to use and not at all prone to tangling. Quite easy to install. And we didn't have the problem the PP mentioned, never had to call customer service fortunately. So it seems like a perfectly OK car seat, but the main reason we bought it was travel and it really doesn't have a particular advantage in that regard. We'll probably buy a "CARES" system and check our other carseat in the belly of the plane!
We bought this seat when we were expecting our third little one. It has allowed us to fit 3 carseats across the back seat of our Honda Acord with no problem (one Britax Roundabout, one Graco snugride for the new little one, and this Radian.) We love the seat. Our son is very comfortable in it and can do the buckles himself. We will probably be getting another when the baby outgrows her baby seat.
Seat cover keeps falling off to the left. This caused the styrofoam to chip off. The company (Sunshine Kids) refuses to send another one even though it's only been 3 months since purchase and I have a receipt. They keep saying it's amazon's responsibility. Amazon is only responsible for 30 days.
