Installation was easy for my husband to complete. The car seat is heavy due to the steel frame, but we don't plan to move it among cars or travel on a plane with it much. The shadow color is actually a small pattern in dark gray. We really like it, but I expected more of a solid color from the photo. The seat part and the strap covers are lined in memory foam. I think my daughter is much more comfortable in this seat than her Keyfit30. The low profile sides make it easier for me to scoot her in and out of the seat (she's 13 months and we have it installed in the middle). The tightened strap is a ratchet style. So, instead of pulling till it's snug, you pull repeatedly and it tightens bit by bit. This was strange at first, but now after a week, I really like it. Somehow, it results in a better fit. The straps in her Keyfit30 were always too tight on the hips and too loose on the chest/shoulders. One tip I've found for reducing the number of ratchet pulls is to only loosen the straps a few inches to unstrap the child. There's no need to pull them all the way loose.

Overall, I love this car seat. It will fit my tall daughter rear facing for years (we're shooting for 4) and seems to be comfortable to sit in. The look is very stylish and European to me. We joke that it's her race car seat. I was originally considering this seat and the Chicco NextFit. I'm glad I chose this one. The NextFit looks (to me) like a baby bucket with its high sides, and it has the same strap design that didn't fit my daughter as well.

Very happy with my purchase!

I did a lot of research prior to buying the next step up of car seat from the infant carriers. Everything you research tells you that the Diono Radian is, indeed, one of the major players and is highly rated. However, there are a few areas that the company can improve upon, as with any car seat. I purchased this car seat based on all of my safety research and the fact that it's a 3-in-1, plus the slimmer design. Here are my detailed findings:

Pros:
Slim design
Steel frame for extra safety
3-in-1 so you only need this seat
Folds flat for carrying like a backpack - you'll need to purchase carrying straps

Cons:
Won't be ideal in every car
Very tall in comparison to others - most other car seats seem to be shorter and wider
Expensive
Heavy
Must purchase a few extras to make it ideal
Chest straps aren't easily adjusted
Head wings/rest doesn't lower much
Can't purchase in-store so you must purchase online - can't try it out first
Instructions don't have a trouble-shooting section for common questions/issues

Explanation:
When we first received this car seat we were super excited and I was positive I had made the right choice! Initially, we put it together pretty easily and understood the parts. Installation was a little more troublesome. We tried to install it in both a 2013 Ford Taurus and 2006 Chevy Equinox. Both cars had quite a few latch options and this is where we got confused. When we first installed it it seemed very loose even after a lot of stepping on the seat and tightening. We later found out that we must use the 2 latch hooks that are the closest together to get a tighter install. After we figured that out it seemed quite a bit more stable. I would also recommend tethering the seat when rear-facing because it is very tall and this will stable it more. Now, this seat is best in my Equinox SUV. It doesn't do well in the Taurus because that car is less roomy and it seems like the seat is too tall and/or is too close to the back of the front seats even when used with the angle adjuster. I will also recommend if you purchase this seat you should definitely purchase the angle adjuster otherwise no matter what car it's installed in rear-facing it will be so close to the back of the front seats that the driver will be uncomfortable. The angle adjusters aren't expensive, but again, it's an additional purchase to an already expensive seat. So we finally got it installed the way we like it in my SUV with angle adjuster and tethering in place in the rear-facing position. Now we realize that the chest straps must be adjusted when we tried out my son in the seat. Adjustment should be done prior to taking your first ride because this takes some getting used to. It's not as easy and intuitive as when we were using his infant carseat. So after we got the straps adjusted correctly we tried adjusting the head wings/rest. My son is at the stage (1 year old) where he's no longer an infant, but he's also not able to have his head reach the head rest just yet. Therefore, he doesn't really have a great option for side support until he gets a little bit taller. With all that being said, we used this a few times and it was sturdy and safe. BUT... after we had to purchase a shorter, wider seat for the Taurus we quickly realized that other seats seem just as safe, but the head support, installation, and chest straps seemed easier to work with. So after giving it some thought we decided to return this seat and get 2 of the Chicco Nextfit seats. These are the newest players in the convertible car seat arena and they really did get it right on the first try. I really wish the Diono Radian could work on the head rest and chest straps a bit more. It would also be nice if they included a trouble-shooting section in the back of their instruction manual for common questions and issues. Most of our trouble-shooting had to be done via the internet and youtube videos from other customers.

        We bought a second RXT for grandma's car and will move into our car as our second child ages into it. Built durably, very heavy, feels secure. Need to spend some time and effort to ensure seat is secured tightly.

                This car seat was way too big and heavy. I thought I would like it because it packs up nicely...but who wants to have a 40 pound back pack on their back? I chose this car seat also because it has a steal frame and is a top choice on the national safety site. This car seat did not fit in to my car comfortably. I have a subaru legacy outback. The material seemed cheap and was already unthreaded in some spots. For this much money I expected a lot more quality.

                The directions were so confusing! I spent an entire night trying to figure out how everything worked. Not user friendly at all! I found another car seat that is also in the top of the national safety website: Evenflo SureRide DLX Convertible Car Seat - Norwood. This care seat is lighter, the material is much better quality and it is half the price! The only down side is it does not turn in to a booster seat.

The buckles are large, the extra padding is a bonus, I LOVE their latch system and my kids appear to be super comfy. We had to get three of these to fit in the back of my husband's Chrysler 300 and love the slim design.

                                I highly recommend this seat.

                                We're currently using this in rear-facing mode. It barely fits in our Mini Cooper, so that's great that it fits. Overall it was very easy to install, and the rear tether is a nice addition. We stuffed towels under it to elevate it to the right angle. We'll have to order the manufacturer's angle adjuster separately and see if that works any better. My biggest complaint is that it's pretty much impossible for us to use the harness adjuster strap when the seat is completely installed in rear-facing mode. The strap must be pulled downward, vertically, rather that outward at any angle, and there just is not the space or clear to pull it that direction when it is in rear-facing position. I don't think this has anything to do with our small car, I think it would be a problem for the seat in this position in any car. We can loosen the harness just fine, but to tighten it we have to unlatch the seat in order to get the right positioning and leverage.

                                      I got it because it was supposedly the smallest and safest seat and you could use it both ways[front/rear], but it's a lot bigger than expected. We installed in the husband's jeep Cherokee rear facing and I can barely sit in the front passenger seat, I'm only 5'4... the instructions/seat don't come with a level like most other car seats,so you don't know if you've installed it right... because of the safety ratings we are keeping it,but I'm looking forward to being able to turn it around front facing.
