I was crossing an intersection, when the passenger side of my car was hit by an SUV going about 40 mph.

My car spun around a couple times, and I looked back immediately after impact to find that my toddler was fine, and his seat was not moving at all during the spins. I immediately got out and removed him, and while the side of his seat received some marks from the impacting door, he was fine and in place.

The car (a 3 year old Mazda) was totaled due to the extensive passenger side damage.

I am so glad we made the decision to purchase this seat. I LOVE the fact that these tether rear facing.

We replaced it with a Rainier for mine & my husband's car as after a side crash the extra siding seemed nice. However, this is a great seat and I have recommended it to EVERYONE over the past 1.5 years.

I purchased this seat in December 1, by late January I noticed some fraying and wear on the seat cushion. My son, 5 years old, sits forward facing and usually wears his uniform pants (soft blue dress pants) when he rides in the car. He can climb in and out on his own, I am not sure why the fabric is pilling and fraying as much as it has, but at this rate, I doubt it will last the full 10 years (I planned on my younger child using it when my son out grows it). The fabric is "Eclipse" which I see is retired, perhaps for good reason. Perhaps the nylon or micro fiber covers will hold up better. On the positive, my son loves this seat. He like that he can rest his head on the wings and sleep on long car rides. It feels very sturdy and safe, thankfully K have never that that aspect tested. I am hopeful we will have a 3rd child eventually and I like that I can most likely fit 3 across.

    Comments about Radian®RXT:

    I researched many seats to find one that would fit my vehicle, we needed something slim enough to fit 3 across in our F150. It fit great in our truck between two Britax parkways, it was also straight forward to install but we did have plenty of practice with our two oldest before hand!

    My one and only issue is the pattern we bought, was the flowery one and after 3 1/2 years of daily use it could use a replacement cover. My daughter has never complained about being uncomfortable and we are always on the go!
    I absolutely love this seat!

    Comments about Radian®RXT:

    I got this seat when my son was turning 1, after extensive research. He had already outgrown his infant car seat. He is 2 1/2 now, and 38" tall, but has a long torso. I chose this one because it had the most strap positions, and allowed for the greatest height, both rear and forward facing. For now, he is still rear facing, and regularly falls asleep on car rides. Yes, it is heavy to carry, but with the backpack straps, it is manageable. I was able to carry the seat while pushing my son in a stroller through the airport.

      We have installed our second seat! This one for our 21 lb 10 month old, he fusses a lot less than trying to get him in his infant seat, but of course we have to wake him up to get him out (not the seats fault) my mom wanted me to say she loves getting the kids in and out of these seats. As a grandma with arthritis she is so happy that she can buckle and tighten the kids straps with ease!

      My 30 pound 40 inch 3 year old loves her new seat. "I want to go in mommy's car, my new seat is so comfortable!" is a direct quote. I love the harness only thing is that she can unbuckle the chest part herself so we have had to work on asking first. We also have the seat protector given as a gift which is great. I cannot wait to install the 2nd seat for my infant more reviews to come!

      The crotch buckle digs into my daughter's leg. Definitely not ideal for the long road trips I bought this carseat to use for.

      Comments about Radian RXT:

      We've had our Radian RXT for about a month now and my 2 year old loves it! Purple is her color. The memory foam is wonderful, especially on the straps. She falls asleep almost every time we go in the car! My husband was impressed with the steel frame. This is an extremely well built car seat and was worth every penny.

        Comments about Radian®RXT:

        I bought this just before I went on vacation from Japan to the midwest. I will admit that backpacking it and ergoing my 15 month old through an international airport was not a fun time (mostly due to an old back injury), but compared to trying to lug a non-collapsible/non-backpackable carseat for the plane, it was great. I had it installed securely via LATCH before my father could get a proper hello hug from my son. My daughter is getting ready to move to a convertible seat and am anxious for her Pacifica to get here. :) I'm so thankful that my friend recommended this company to me.

          Comments about Radian®RXT:

          We've had this seat for over a year now. It's been through a lot, to say the least. I did buy the angle adjuster. It's a must for midsize cars like mine, 2001 Accord. My son is still rear-facing at 2y4m old. He honestly cried in every single seat I bought before this one. He hated feeling confined. This seat gave him the option of being safe and comfortable. LATCH made the install super easy. I love the lower anchor locks. Seriously, they're super easy to use. Now I use the seatbelt to install and it's difficult in some bechiles of the seat belts are slicker than mine. But I just turn the car seat sideways and thread it through. Then I buckle it while holding the slack. Then I turn the seat right ways and start tightening. It sounds like a lot but it only takes about two minutes. My son weighs about 38lbs and is about 38in tall, mostly leg. He's still on the third harness slot since it's below his shoulders and the next one is still above. I do wish it came with thinner shoulder pads. The ones it came with are really thick and I couldnt get him buckled correctly with them on. If you decide to buy this seat, definitely purchase the angle adjuster with it. You'll get a lot of room back when it's installed. We also bought the waterproof seat cover. Definitely worth the ten dollars too. It's great for leaky diapers and spilled drinks and food. It saves the hassle of having to wash every time.
