Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat Review

It is about that time for me. I am going from an infant seat to an upright car seat. This is a new chapter in my book. I wanted to find something that allowed it to be rear-facing, since my little guy is only 11 months and a bit tall for his infant seat. I wanted this seat to be a convertible seat that is also small enough to fit in my small car without taking up a lot of room. I begun researching a lot of various different seats that I thought would be great. I came across the Radian RXT. I seen nothing but amazing reviews and I knew that it would cost me a bit, but when it comes to my group, it is safety first. The first thing that I loved about it is that it was slim, I was amazed, because even with my daughter’s big girl booster in the back seat, it still left plenty of room.

The other thing is that I can use it with both my daughter or son, because it will hold up to 120 lbs, comfortably. It is also jam packed with safety features like a steel frame, energy absorbing EPS foam, aluminum reinforced side walls, 5 point harness and adjustable head support. This is literally the safest car seat I have found. It is even able to be used for infants. That was a huge selling point as well. When I need to store it, it folds up pretty easily without any type of issue and since it is convertible, I can use it in 3 different ways. This is the only car seat that I will need for my little guy, and I because of all the great features, I actually recently purchased a second one for my daughter. I want them to be safe and this is a great start. This car seat actually surpassed the Federal crash standards and NCAP standards that verifies child seats in the case of severe accident conditions. Let’s talk pro’s and con’s.

Pro’s:

  • Super LATCH connectors for secure installation
  • Can be fitted with an adult belt if there isn’t a latch anchor
  • Steel frame with EPS foam
  • Multiple recline positions
  • 5 point harness
  • Washable seat cover
  • Reinforced head supportive
  • Rear facing tether straps

Con’s:

  • The price is a bit steep
  • Can be hard to install the first time

Overall, this is one of the best car seats that I have seen on the market. It is comfortable, and has plenty of impressive safety features. It is basically the only car seat that you will need for your little one.
