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!

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 Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat - Black Mist:

      My wife purchased two of the Diono RXT car seats at the same time. We have had them for a couple months now. We are giving them away. I'd feel guilty taking someone's money for these car seats. They are a extreme pain to move from one vehicle to another. I can't ever seem to get them real tight. Overall I don't even like looking at the clumsy pieces of junk because I absolutely hate them at this point. We have had the best of luck with the new car seats we bought. The new car seats are Britex tight click. They are super user friendly.

      Comments about Diono Radian RXT 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 Radian RXT 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 Radian RXT 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.

            I am a Nanny, so safety is very important to me. I recommend this car seat to all my employers and many have purchased one for my vehicle. Having a safe car seat while transporting my employers children makes me feel so relieved because I know in the event of an accident, their children will remain safe and are less likely to be injured. I plan to keep my charge rear-facing in my vehicle until at least age 3. I know from past experience that he will have plenty of leg room. I love the ability to use the foam bumper to give my front seats more room when the car seat is installed. I've have children get sick in the car, and its so easy to remove the cover and throw it in the wash. I plan to purchase this car seat when i have children of my own.

            Comments about Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat - Black Mist:

            We love our Diono Radian RXT. My son (now 9 months) has been using it since birth, and it has always seemed very comfortable for him. We also have an infant carrier carseat in my husband's car. My son does not seem to like it as much, and seems to get uncomfortable in it quickly. However, he has never seemed uncomfortable in the Diono. We used the infant insert for the first few months, but we didn't really like the head support, as it seemed to make his head flop forward too much, so we didn't use it. The angle is nice rear facing, and his head has never flopped forward while sleeping. He always sleeps comfortably. The chest clip is really big, which makes it easy to clip & it never gets tangled up, unlike the car seat in my husband's car. The buckle itself has two straight clips which go into the receiver. It is easy to do. My husband's car seat you have to like fit two pieces together like a puzzle before putting it into the receiver, and it's a PAIN. WE LOVE OUR DIONO! My son is about to outgrow the height on his infant carrier for my husband's car, so we have purchased a second Diono Radian RXT for his car as well. And we just found out we are expecting baby #2, so my mom just purchased another Diono Radian RXT for my car for the new baby. We are loyal customers, and are really satisfied with the product. We love the safety features such as the extended rear facing, and forward facing with harness to 80 pounds, and that it also functions as a booster after that! Thanks!

            Our family has done foster parenting for more than a decade and we have 9 children. We have literally tried every carseat on the market. We have taken classes on proper carseat installation, and I am a professional engineer as well. I tell you this so you don't think I "just don't know how to do it right".
            Forward facing install is fine, our 5 year old who has CP and is very small for her age does really well in it.
            We bought a 2nd Diono for our 2 year old who is still rear-facing. The problem is that I can not get the carseat installed safely in our 15 passenger van. There is not a position I can get it into where the seat is not able to rock sideways very dramatically. There are even some positions where I can turn it completely sideways and almost upside-down. THAT IS NOT OK. I'm not sure how they tested this thing, but something is very wrong with the way it is designed to be installed rear-facing. And then there is our Prius... it's back is way too tall to be able to get it installed rear-facing behind the driver and still be able to drive. If your child is old enough to use it forward facing, it's a decent option. But for rear-facing... don't waste your time/money/energy.
