Being the mom of two that is always on the go, I always want to make sure to keep my kids save in the car! I have spent a great deal of time researching the right car seats, to make sure that my girls are kept as safe as possible.

My Thoughts: I personally believe that the Radian RXT is one of the safest car seat on the market today for a variety of reasons.
FRAME: Diono’s car seats are all made with steel alloy frames and aluminum reinforced sides. I am so glad to know that my child is going to be safe in this carseat.
LIFESPAN: A ten year lifespan is very impressive. Not only is this car seat going to be the only one that I will ever need for my daughter, but it could also possibly be used for future children as well!
COMFORT LEVEL: I was so glad to see all the cushions that are in this car seat for my baby. She seems to absolutely love sitting in the carseat. Having the bottom made out of memory foam is absolutely wonderful as well. I know that she will always be confortable in her carseat.
CARSEAT VARIETY: I was so glad to see that this car seat can be rear-facing, forward-facing, as well as a booster seat. I love how it can be each of these seats! Both my 9 month old, as well as my 2 year 9 month old found the seat comfortable! POUNDS: How wonderful is it for the carseat to be able to work for your child from 5 pounds, all the way up to 120 pounds.
INSTALLATION: Geting the carseat put together and installed really was a pretty easy process. I was impressed to see that in the instruction manual, they had a spot for you to scan, so that you could see videos on how to get it put together.
SIZE/WEIGHT: The carseat is rather large, not in width, but more in the height. I was worried about rear facing and having enough room, but it really seemed to fit quite nicely in the car. The carseat weighs 24 pounds, so I know that it really is sturdy and durable for my child.
FOLDING: How impressive for a car seat to have a folding aspect. This car seat can be folded flatly for easy travel and storage.
EMERGENCY INFORMATION: I was impressed with the little piece of paper that is attached to the carseat for you to fill out information about your child in case of an emergency. What a great idea. We were pleasantly surprised at how much we really enjoyed this carseat! As you have just seen, I can literally go on and on with all of the things I loved about the carseat. So, if you are looking for an extremely safe car seat, that your child will be very comfortable in, and will have a long life span, than this the Radian RXT is definitely the one for you.
