Sunhine Kids states on pages 33 and 34 of the manual ( http://www.skjp.com/Media/Radian80-manual.pdf ) that the straps can be BELOW the shoulders in the topmost position as long as the child's ears are not over the top of the shell and the child is less than 51" tall.

Good to know. Probably same thing applies to the 65.

Yes, it does, so unless your child is heavy, there's no real need for the 80 IMO since they have the same slots.

Or a very small child -- the Radian80 has an infant insert.

Well, the biggest problem with very small babies is strap height. Not sure the lowest height on the radian, but I bet someone here knows!

I could go out and measure, but I am a lazy butt

However, a few different someones showed me pictures of their fairly tiny newborns in a Radian65 and it fit beautifully

It's actually a great seat for infants. Ilana's shoulders were even w/ the bottom slots at about 7.5# and 20.5".

The Sunshine Kids website shows the lowest strap slots are 9". The Marathon/cousins and the Roundabout are 10".
