I got the Radian RXT. Have had it since August 2014. Though heavy and bulky in rear facing position, I would have no other seat. Our lil guy has been in it since he was 2 months old. It's nice being able to wash the cover, knowing it is one of the top safe car seats, and comfy for our lil guy. It is built to last as well. For me, it is well worth the extra money. I have had the cheaper car seat, and comfort for the child disappeared within a couple years. I had to add padding to them so child was more comfy. The molded plastic didn't feel pleasant to me. Diano uses better quality materials that almost 2 yrs and an above average height and weight child, still goin strong and comfy for him

I bought this seat thinking it would be able to take my child from her last 5 pt car seat all the way to 57" tall and ready to move to a seatbelt. As a 5 pt car seat for younger children it is definitely a 5 star seat. However, Diono needs to be a bit more realistic when advertising it as a seat for children up to 57" and up to 120 lbs. Unless your child is built like an Oompha Loompha (in which case he wouldn't fit in the narrow frame) he has no hopes of using this seat until he nears the height or weight maximum. I had my older child, and several of her friends, all between 52" and 56" try to sit in the seat and there was no way they could get their shoulders underneath the headrest to lean back. Unless you were very thin, had an extremely short torso, and VERY long legs, you could not sit in this seat once you were over 51" tall (6 inches short of the recommended height for seatbelt only... And 6" short of what Diono advertises this seat can be used for). My older daughter has a BMI that places her in the 15th percentile (shaped like a model, tall and thin, has long legs, and is just shy of 54") she cannot lean back because, even when the headrest is raised to the highest point, the shoulders of the headrest are too low. I am really regretting this purchase for my Kindergartner. She is already over 48" and only has a few inches more to grow before she can no longer use as a 5 pt and wouldn't fit under the shoulders of the head rest to use as a booster. Give us a break, Diono... Advertise it as it should be used... A 5 pt and a booster mode realistically up to maybe 52" tall.

Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Black Mist):

I have 5 Diono Radians (about to buy a 6th) for my own 3 children and my home day care kids and I love the versatility! I bought them because they fit 3 across (still the best feature) but they do so much more! I carry multiple ages, from 2 months up to 8 yr olds in my Diono's in a combination of front and rear facing and I can switch them between age ranges fairly easily. I love that I can extend rear face (at least up to 2 yrs ) and even have my 3 yr olds still rear facing. I love that my kindergartener is still in 5 point and my 8 yr old only just moved from his Diono, in 5 point, to a booster. Now to get the high back, Diono booster!
True it's heavy but I really value the steel frame and extended life of the seat so that doesn't bother me. The only real con I have is the difficulty of instalation. I am extremely picky about my car seat instalation and have become very skilled over the years at installing a variety of seats but the Diono is one of the hardest seats to get a tight fit when the seat is forward facing if you don't have latch in every seat. I dont trust anyone else to install them correctly and don't take them out very often.
Over all, though I have tried many car seats over the years, this one is the most durable and versatile! I highly recommend it!

Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Black Mist):

I am a nanny and have been a nanny for 16 years and I also have a 4 1/2 year old girl. I install and remove car seats from my car very often and have been doing it for a longer than most. This car seat might be heavy, but it is incredibly easy to install and comes with all the things to make sure you are installing it as safe as you can! Have been seen the bones of this thing! Wow! Removal is a bit more tricky due to fitting 3 of these across in my smallish wagon. Note: these are the only car seats that fit 3 across in my car! So with the limited space it is a bit tough to take out a specific car seats. Since I have a range of ages in the car. I have to unbuckle two car seats due to buckles being towards the center of the car. To get to specific seats. When you have three car seats together it is difficult to stick your hand behind and in between seats due to the design of the sides... there isn't much room for my small hands to fit between car seats to get to the seat belt buckles to unhook. I cut my knuckles every time! With that being said! I still think these are the best car seats! If I didn't need to have 3 car seats in my car (all next to each other) installation and removal would be a breeze! I can't forget about Talking about washing. Washing is also super easy... Ever have a kid throw up in your car? Have an accident? A diaper explosion? After a couple, I finally bought Diono's seat protector. That thing has saved me from pulling the whole car seat apart and out so many times! Through potty training, illnesses and baby butts I love the seat protector! If you don 't have a protector right away, taking the cover off and pulling the straps out is pretty self explanatory and easy as well as putting itback together. One last thing, traveling with this car seat on a plane! OMG! It fits in the seat like a glove and doesn't crowed anyone else! My kid also as a bonus stays seated perfectly because she knows while being in the seat that's what she is suppose to do!

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Black Mist):

    The car seat seems like it's cut from a solid block of iron. Laughably heavy for a car seat. Awkward to install. Difficult to adjust. My wife and I actually still to this day, over a year after we've bought it, disagree on it's proper installation and strap use, even after going over the videos and instructions that the seat came with.

    I hate this car seat. Every time I use it I think to myself how much I hate it, and that is not an exageration. Everytime I have to take it out of the car, I think to myself how much I hate this carseat. It even has a strap on the rear for one of the many convoluted installation options thats about 3-4 feet long that doesn't actually have any real place to be stored. The manual says "put it here" but it will fit poorly and fall out. The strap is so long that if it falls out of the car, it will be able to be run over by the rear wheel while your child is seated in the car driving, so make sure that the strap is secured because things would get real interesting real quick if the rear wheel catches that strap while you are driving after you close the door on it by accident.

    My wife loves it. She isnt the one moving it, installing with it or dealing with it, however. 2 out of 5 stars. 2 since it does work as a car seat, but it's a nightmare that I'll have to deal with for a few more years.

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Black Mist):

    We've had this car seat for almost two years. We bought it when our son outgrew the bucket-style infant car seat. Our son is built like a football player - 90th percentile in height, 99th percentile in weight. For the sake of his comfort, we got this seat, and I think it was worth the price. His grandparents have a less expensive convertible seat in their car that is also rated for up to 45 pounds rear-facing, but he is so uncomfortable in that one and he complains. He has never complained about being uncomfortable in the radian. The big drawback to this car seat is the amount of space it takes when it is rear facing. The front seat has to be pushed pretty far forward for it to fit, and we even have the foam adjuster that makes it lean back less. A tall person cannot comfortably fit in the front seat when this is installed behind it. We took this seat car shopping and found this to be true in every midsize SUV we looked at. That said, I still think it is an excellent seat; just be aware of the amount of space it takes.
