Parents love that this seat can fit tiny 5lb infants as a rear-facing as well as much bigger kids (up to 120lbs!) as a booster. With a full steel alloy frame and aluminum reinforced side walls, this seat provides unparalleled safety. It also folds flat for travel, is FAA certified, and thanks to its narrow frame, you’ll be able to fit three across in most mid-sized vehicles, which makes this super popular amongst families with multiples.

The Catch: It’s pretty heavy, so even though it folds flat for easy transport, it’s a bear to lug around.

  • great seat Mar 22, 2017

  • It is such a safe and comfortable ride!!! Mar 17, 2017

  • It's trim side to side. Also has low sides so it's easy to get kids in. We have two of these and love them. The install is a breeze. We used the second one from birth with my youngest! Mar 11, 2017

  • Absolutely love all the features and safety. Slim design is wonderful!! Mar 08, 2017

  • The best car seats- comfortable, easy to install, and fit great into a car without all of the extras on the sides that some of the other bulky car seats have Mar 04, 2017

  • This is such a comfortable car seat. It's not bulky at all, making for more room in the seat next to it. Easy to take apart/put back together for washings. Feb 27, 2017

  • While it was great for when we needed 3 across, I don't think I'd buy this seat for any other situation. There are better seats out there for extended rear facing. Feb 24, 2017

    I did a ton of research and need multiple carseats side by side to fit in a Sienna. I'm so happy to have two of these now! They're excellent! Feb 23, 2017

  • It's one of the pricier options, but you get what you pay for. The quality is great, it's heavy, and provides excellent cushioning. It can be used as a booster, as well, for up to 12 yrs old. Feb 22, 2017

  • This seat is my favorite!! This is the narrowest seat ive found and the memory foam seat pad is so comfy! This seat has all the safety features i wanted and more!! Feb 22, 2017

  • It's heavy, so heavy to move. The belt path is narrow and I always end up scratching my hands on it. Other than install issues, it's nice. Feb 22, 2017

  • I love how small this seat is. It leaves a lot of room in my car and my child thinks it's very comfortable. On the downside, it's heavy. Feb 21, 2017

  • My HUGE 2.5 year old is still comfortably rearfacing in his Radian RXT. It is heavy & takes up a LOT of space front to back, but we love it. I plan to buy another one when my infant outgrows his seat. Feb 18, 2017

  • We own two of these and they are awesome! They're narrow but roomy, and allow plenty of space for my 2 year old's legs while still rear facing. Feb 16, 2017

  • I love that I was able to rear face my son safely until he was over 4 years old. He is a large boy, always has been. This was a great purchase! I love that it is so narrow. I was easily able to fit Feb 03, 2017

  • Have this seat currently but thinking about switching to a britax. LO complains his back hurts in it, so may switch now and switch back when he grows out of a convertible Feb 02, 2017

  • This is my 5 year old's pick for a car seat. He says the memory foam makes it the most comfortable. A steel frame gives me peace of mind. Feb 02, 2017

  • I really wanted to love this seat. My son is a big boy. He hated getting in his car seat but this seat is fun to him. It looks just like a race car drivers seat. However the chest clip does not lock! Jan 18, 2017

    This sucker is HEAVY (which I love). It is nice and narrow, but using the tether and LATCH for rear-facing, it takes up a good amount of space from the seat in front of it. LO and I love it! Jan 17, 2017

  • LOVE!!! We love this car seat so much, we purchase FOUR of them!! Jan 17, 2017

  • I love the slim fit in the car. I love how safe it is. I love the extended rear facing. My daughter is very happy in this car seat! Jan 10, 2017

    Safe, compact and comfortable. Switched to these after owning the convertible peg peregos. I love that I can fit 3 in a row with the harness style. It's great that they also include cup holders! Jan 06, 2017

Everyone
  • Q: Does this carseat have a level on it and adjustable angle base?

    asked by Mollie B. - Jul 09, 2015

  • Q: Does this car seat work with the UppaBaby Vista stroller?

    asked by Secretly Expecting - May 04, 2014

  • No. This is a convertible seat and those are not designed for stroller compatibility. Only infant carriers are designed for portability and stroller compatibility.

    Courtney G. - May 04, 2014

  • No, this is not an infant only carseat, it's a convertible, so it stays in the car.

    Marisa G. - May 04, 2014

  • As people said this is a convertible car seat for after the infant one but I highly highly recommend it! I have two and absolutely love them! I have tried others and haven't liked them as much and my friends all wish they got dionos!

    Melissa P. - May 04, 2014

  • No, but if you're taking it to the airport, you can get a rolling luggage cart and strap the car seat to that. You can even let your kid ride on it through the airport. (so say my sources, I haven't tried.)
