New features include side walls that are deeper and provide greater Side Impact Protection, higher weight capacities, increased industry product life at 12 years, better infant body pillow, superior padding for improved comfort and stylish new designs. Plus, it introduces the Diono Safety Synergy technology featuring safety and comfort for your little one. This model is built for strength with a full steel frame and reinforced sides, featuring a patented SafeStop energy absorbing harness and a unique SuperLATCH system that makes installation easy as well as helping to keep your child safe. Other features included are a remarkable 12 position headrest made of reinforced aluminum and lined with EPS foam for protection and comfort of head and body, memory foam padding, 5 shoulder and 3 buckle positions to provide a perfect fit, sides that expand and a seat bottom that is longer to provide extra room and comfort for your growing child. Plus, the handy design offers ultimate convenience; it folds flat for easy storage and travel, sits low in your car so your child can get in and out easily, is super-compact with 3 seats fitting across in a mid-size car, but also offers more space on the inside where it matters to your little one. It has been crash tested, the industry benchmark for verifying child seat performance in severe accident conditions and is the only car seat rated for LATCH use with a child up to 80 lbs.

I am a certified passenger safety technician. During a car seat check event, I noticed Diono does not have a history of recalls. When working with a family with a child that has special needs, this seat is one of the top choices to talk about because the harness weight is high, it accomodates rear facing longer, and has a backing if in booster seat mode. I picked this for my toddler after working with it hands on. The installation is different but actually doable. It may take a second to become aquainted if using the rear facing platform because other seat companies do not use the same design. This is my favorite seat and my son loves it too because his legs are comfortable, and he can get in to it on his own with out help. yes, we are in the independent toddler stage and getting in on his own is a big deal ;) .

Good seat but ratchet system needs to be redesigned

Good car seat, comfortable, higher weight limit than other car seats. Life of car is 12 years. At 300-400 dollars for car seat, the Initial Cost is reasonable.

Good car seat, comfortable, higher weight limit than other car seats. Life of car is 12 years. At 300-400 dollars for car seat, the Initial Cost is reasonable.

Cons- The car diono car seat adjuster foam should be included, its just a piece of foam that cost 10-15 dollars...

In Rear facing, the Ratchet system is difficult to get a snug fit, I've just set the belt where its comfortable/snug and left as is...

Called Diono and they said i could try pulling on the back to get rid of slack...seems like they know its a common problem and pulling back on the rear slack is a temporary solution. I'm guessing once its Forward Facing it'll be easier since I'll be pulling down inside upwards.

I've also heard there's a shorter belt but its only avail in the U.S.

Getting the vehicles seat belt through the bottom was a little difficult but if you use a stick and guide the belt, it's much easier.

With that; im guessing i'll have to adjust the shoulder harness/crotch buckle probably 5 times as my daughter grows, so have a stick nearby or someone with small hands.

You have to uninstall car seat every time you have to do an adjustment...

People have complain its heavy but i don't mind the weight. Id rather have a sturdy car seat than something that;s plastic and flimsy.

It fits in my 2009 honda civic but the diono angle adjuster is a must. It has a rear facing tether. Its a good system but now one of the front seats have limited space due to the strap being tether to the seat rails.

Would i buy this again?

Probably, the only issue is the ratchet system which will get better once forward faceing...hopefully...

Comments about Diono Rainier Convertible+Booster Car Seat 2016 (Black Mist):

My coworker recommended Diono to me because she loved it and was impressed with the steel frame! So I took her advice and bought a Rainer In a houndstooth! The
Car seat is made very well and loved the safety and design features but it was quite difficult installing in my Nissan Pathfinder!! After 30-45 mins, my husband was able to install it without the seat wobbling back and forth! I wish it would have two latch devices on both sides! We decided to keep it but not invest in other ones for our youngest!

Comments about Diono Rainier Convertible+Booster Car Seat 2016 (Black Mist):

Prior to this purchase, we were dedicated Britax customers. Our youngest son has grown so quickly that he outgrew his car seat, but is too young for a booster. Therefore we looked for a convertible car seat that still provided us with the security of the 5-point harness and would be a high-back booster, then backless booster.
The Diono Rainier gives the highest weight and height tolerances for convertible boosters, while providing the flexibility to adjust the hip area for our growing boy.
Some improvements are adjustments that the Britax has that makes the installation and maintenance much more user friendly. Firstly, the strap adjustments on Britax use a slider bar system vs restrapping on the Diono. Also the UAS clips are permanently affixed to the Britax car seats providing better stability.
Overall, we would definitely recommend Diono and would purchase again.

Comments about Diono Rainier Convertible+Booster Car Seat 2016 (Black Mist):

I use the car seat everyday! we had a winter baby so we used a carrier at first then transferred to Diono, we love every min. Our son is safe and comfortable and no longer cries in the car. We are looking at buying a second one for our 2nd car. The car seat is well made, and securely and easily can be taken in and out of the car. When used in rear facing mode it does take up a bit of room (fits in ford focus) but forward facing can still fit 3 people in back. I cannot tell you how much I love this carseat. It is easy to transfer and take the baby in and out (even kicking toddlers!)

    I love the car seat and how spacious it is. Some car seats it seems like my little guy is squished in them but the Rainier I can tell he is safe and still have room to move his arms and legs. I love that it is rear facing for so long!
