Description
Item # 50014


Your child’s security is our top priority. We engineered our radian® 3rXT with premium, innovative features like a steel alloy frame, aluminum reinforced sidewalls, energy absorbing EPS foam and a reinforced adjustable head support to keep your little one protected and comfortable.

Extended rear-facing

The radian® 3rXT keeps children comfortably rear-facing from 5-45 pounds for the safest possible position. Premium, plush head and body support cushions are included for newborns and infants.

Room to grow

Accommodates forward-facing children up to 65 pounds in a 5-point harness and converts to booster mode for kids 50-120 pounds. The aluminum reinforced, adjustable head support and sidewalls provide additional side impact protection.

Worth the Weight

Our convertible car seats are made from steel for safety you can feel. The fully integrated steel frame is wrapped in thick engineered plastic to withstand severe crash forces. Deep, aluminum reinforced sidewalls provide excellent side impact protection, while energy absorbing EPS foam surrounds your.
  • Joy of the journey: From birth, keep your little one rear facing longer to 45 lbs traveling safely. As they grow to 120 lbs (12 years approx.) our long-range lifespan protects your child facing forwards. Peace of mind for you, we’ve thought of everything so you don’t have to.
  • Lovingly engineered: The radian® 3 rXT is fabricated using super strong automotive high strength steel, engineered into a dual spine. This unique core manages and dissipates energy and provides an unyielding structure to protect your baby. We shield your precious child through Super side impact protection with aluminium reinforcement.
  • Three’s not a crowd: For safety that fits 3 across the radian® 3 rXT packs all our innovative safety features into a sleek and slim design that allows you to fit three across (in most mid-size vehicles). Now the whole family can travel, together.
  • First Class comfort: Inspired by the best European fashions, our radian® 3 rXT has soft fabric covers and a memory foam seat base bottom. Lined with thick energy absorbing foam, comfort and safety go hand in hand. A tailored infant support cushion and a cup holder are included.
  • Made of Seattle: We are from Seattle, a city where being different is the norm and so is the radian® 3 rXT. It folds flat, so you can travel the world and is FAA approved for use on an aircraft. You don’t need to change just because baby is in tow.
  • Dimensions (in): 16 L x 17 W x 28.5 H

Missing pieces
July 24, 2020
I have purchase quite a few items from albee baby in the past and never had issues. This time around I bought 3 Diono car seats. 2 black and this red one. The car seat itself is nice but this one in particular seemed as if maybe it was a return because it’s missing many items. I reached out to albee baby, sent them pictures and still no reply. I called and the customer service rep told me they would get back to me by the end of the day. Still, no reply. I just want an even exchange. Something complete. I have not yet installed any of them, just sitting in their boxes because I’m waiting for a reply.
ProsThe car seat itself is sturdy, but I haven?t been able to use it to properly review it since it?s missing the cushion I need to put my 4 year on.

BEST SEAT
July 22, 2020
We're big fans of Diono seats. This is our second model, my kids are 3 and 2 and we continue to keep them rear facing thanks to Diono's high rear facing weight capabilities. 3yo is 42lbs, tall and sits comfortably rear facing. 2yo is 34lbs, tall as well. We have a Honda Crv and each seat is behind the passenger and driver respectively. Driver and passenger have plenty of room. The quality is top notch, the 5pt harness is great and works on a ratcheting system, making it easy to loosen and tighten. Installs as well as other convertible seats. Sufficient padding for child's comfort and the head side impact protection works great as a head rest for car naps. The seat is heavy, but we don't plan on moving seats often. We did plan on traveling with the seats in flight and in Hawaii before covid...and purchased the 2 straps each to create a backpack carry for these....we'll see if we ever get to go.
ProsHigh weight rear facing and foward facing capabilities.
ConsPrice. You get what you pay for, so this is a personal.

Great Car Seat!
July 22, 2020
We upgraded my daughter from an infant car seat to the Diono Dradian 3RXT. It is definitely a slimmer car seat and fits nicely in the car. My daughter would get so hot in the infant car seat, but due to the slimmer size and smaller incline of the 3RXT, my daughter is extremely comfortable in the seat and doesn't complain. I recommend for anyone whose child likes to see out the window and gets warm easily.

Not So Stellar
July 11, 2020
I received my Diono Radian 3RXT a day late. When it did arrive, the box was banged up, and it did not look new.

Once I got my car seat out of the box, it proved tricky to install forward facing using the seat belt installation method. The seat fabric is sewn in the middle between to Velcro openings to access the belt path. Getting your hands in there to tighten the belt required lots of wriggling with no good sight lines to either the belt path or the buckle itself, leaving you to guess if the belt got twisted or went into the right receptacle.

The headrest on the seat provides plenty of extra protection compared to the Radian 3RX (which we also have, and was a breeze to install in the same car also forward facing using the seat belt option). But you have to remove the seat cover and headrest cover to adjust the headrest height. Unlike many other boosters, the headrest doesn't extend past the top of the seat. That means once your child reaches the top height of the seat, even with the headrest option (which costs about $100 extra), you won't get any extra use out of this seat.

The seat does fold flat, which is great for storage and transport. But it weighs so much I can't imagine ever lugging it onto any trips. A lighter seat that doesn't fold would be much easier. I do appreciate the steel core, but once you install this car seat, you don't want to mess with it again until you have to.

And you might. You have to uninstall the seat when using it forward facing to adjust the harness strap height. I'm not a fan of doing more work, much less more car seat installations, than required. I much prefer the handle adjustment found on Britax, Graco, and other brands.

It does make the seat sit low, so if you need a narrow seat with more side impact protection that doesn't block your rear window, this may be a good choice. Otherwise, save yourself some money and go with the Diono Radian 3RX or choose a different brand altogether.
ProsFolds flat Can be used rear facing (but very long so may not work in some vehicles or seat positions) Can be used forward facing with a harness Can be used as a booster with seat belt (though your child may outgrow it in height long before they should be a belt positioning booster) Narrow seat Low setback doesn't block rear window Last for 10 years before expiration
ConsSeat must be uninstalled to adjust harness height when installed forward facing Low seat back limits years of use Seat belt path blocked by sewn seat cover for forward installation Extra strap needed for forward facing in certain weight range Headrest can only be adjusted by removing seat cover and head rest cover Instruction manual stored on side of seat hard to access when installed forward facing particular next to another seat (which seems often given that this narrow seats lends itself to that) Heavy
Best UsesForward facing in vehicles where you need three car seats across, thanks to the super narrow base

Solid Carseat

This is the second 3rxt I purchased. The first being the 2019 version. I was slightly disappointed that the fabric no longer wraps around the back of the seat, but in the scheme of things its no big deal. I fond these pretty easy to install and am confident it will protect my child.

Perfect fit for a bucket seat
July 2, 2020
This is our 7th car seat and the only reason I bought it was to fit it in a bucket seat of Mitsubishi 3000GT. So my review will be mostly devoted to that and could be related to 2+2 sport or GT cars with very limited space for rear seats, which are usually done as bucket seat. Except for 3000GT, I can think of Nissan GTR, Mitsubishi Eclipse, Nissan 300ZX (2+2 version) etc.
Overall Diono Radian 3RXT looks very solid, designed with both kids and parents in mind, looks very comfortable and safe for a child, and is designed to keep everything together (belt are secured and not hanging, fabrics are zipped or on velcro etc.).
So as I mentioned before it fits well in a very tight spot of 3000GT bucket seat giving some room to the kid. Although it is very tight, but is the only seat I could adjust to fit in there. Securing the seat in the 3000GT wasn't easy as the belt strapped behind the back is not tight enough, so I ended up using it as a "lap belt" strapping. But that gives too much slack in the upper side. To fix that an anchoring point is needed. Specifically in 3000GT I could find 3 anchoring points (there's no one from the factory):
1) with the help of auxiliary strap supplied with the seat to the back of the trunk (a loop could be made around one of the brackets). The only issue with it is I don't find it secure in case of impact from the rear. Although the car is very solid and can take a pretty severe hit from the back, if the trunk gets bent in that spot, the anchoring point loosens and that could be a safety issue. That's what I'm going to show on pictures, but would recommend only as a temporary solution.
2) Parcel bracket used for tying up luggage right behind the rear seats. The bracket itself is not big and is being held by 1 bolt, but since it is done in addition to the main belt, it should be able to manage. The only issue is that the bracket is not easy to find. I'm also trying to use a mopar tether from Dodge Dakota as a replacement for that rare bracket. That's what I will probably end up doing.
3) Probably the most secured way of anchoring would be a rear strut bar. The most expensive anchoring point but if you have one, not only the car seat could be fixed to it, but it also gives some more rigidity to the rear part of the chassis. Potentially a mod to consider.
Pros- Narrow but with enough room for the kid - Small base allowing it to be fixed in "bucket" seats (e.g. Mitsubishi 3000GT) - No parts hanging out of the car seat, everything has a spot to be secured at - A removable cup holder that could be put on either side - Has support for rear facing position, making it very comfortable for that position - Secure pads for side impacts - Universal car seat for different ages - Foldable so could be used for travel, although a bit heavy compared to "travelers'" seats, but that comes at a cost of being secure and solid enough to be used every day - Nice design. Looks good in real life, in my personal opinion
Cons- A bit heavy although positioned as a traveler seat. But to me it's not really a cons item as the heavier the more secure - Synthetic material, even though it is designed to be breathable. Not sure how is it going to be taken by my kid in summer - A bit tricky assembly of a cup holder. Made me look it up on YouTube
Best Uses- Tight cars, or when 3 in a row is needed - Bucket seats of sports cars but might need a fit test as could be very tight - Somewhat for travels, as it folds well, but might be a bit heavy if you're looking for "light" travels - All the ages, including rear facing as it comes with a proper support to maintain the comfortable angle

Best car seat ever
June 26, 2020
This is our 3rd diono rxt purchased through Albeebaby. The first two are an older version (purchased roughly 2-3 years ago). I love that the newer seat has a fabric covering that covers the back of the seat so no straps are visible in the back. My kids love how comfortable these seats are. I love how slender they are and that they can rear face for so long. My oldest rear faced in this style of seat until age 4 and I intend for my two year old to do the same. Both are tall and at the top of the charts for height and weight. Every time I've ordered from this site I have gotten my car seats within one week! I love that!! Love the free shopping and prices as well. I always refer my friends here, and to this seat specifically.

This is my second Diono. I love how sturdy these car seats are and how slim. We have two Dionos and a high back booster across our Expedition bench seat and it all fits well. They fold compact and that makes it easier to travel with. Be prepared for the extra weight of this sturdy seat though.

Good looking, good materials, very sturdy, solid feeling
June 18, 2020
First, this car seat is very stylish, seems like visual appeal was a big part of their design. This seat looks like it belongs in a Ferrari. Materials also feel high quality and seems durable. My baby is comfortable sitting inside. It is a little heavier than other car seats but has a very solid and well built feel. One downside for me is the rear facing angle is not adjustable like other car seats and you need to attach a plastic piece under to make the angle for rear facing. Although when installed in the car, the rear facing angle in our suv seems fine. Another like that we have for the seat is the very nice and comfortable padding on the seat straps. When I compare this seat to others in person, I would still choose this seat. The yellow and gray coloring is pleasing and sporty.
ProsGood looking Good materials, washable Sturdy, solid Comfortable and soft padding Feels long lasting Slimmer compared to other seats Allows for 3 in one row Easy to tighten and loosen straps
ConsSlightly heavier No angle adjuster built in For rear facing, requires attachment

Far Exceeded Hopes and Expectations
June 18, 2020
I regret even ever buying an infant carrier rather than going straight to this super high quality car seat. We've gone through three car seats in three years with my three year old. I've looked at this one for a long time and regret that I didn't go for it--because I would've saved a lot of money if I had just picked this one the first time around! It is so comfy, so safe and sturdy, and I get an extremely secure install without nearly the effort I had to put in with past carseats (Safety 1st, Uppababy, and Chicco).
Safety is obviously the most important, and I give this carseat 5 stars. But it is so pretty too! It looks so nice in my backseat, and the plum color is beautiful. I am going to go ahead and move my three month old into this same car seat!

Carseats don't have to suck!
May 1, 2020
TL;DR: BUY THIS CARSEAT. You won't be disappointed. (For our next kiddo, I'm seriously contemplating skipping the infant bucket entirely, and just getting another one of these!)

I started researching carseats when my son was about six months old. We had been using an infant seat since birth, and I thought I had done a good job researching which infant seat I wanted, but I ended up absolutely hating it (hence the search for a convertible seat at an early age). After months of agonizing over which carseat to buy, the price point and ratings of the Diono Radian 3RXT could not be beat! So we pulled the trigger, and let me tell you: I LOVE THIS THING. The straps glide like a hot knife through butter. It's built like a tank, so I never feel like my little guy isn't safe. The design of the carseat allows my kiddo to stay cool, even when the sun is hitting him. And, it will grow with him until he's out of carseats. I never have to buy another seat! I have a 2012 4Runner, and my son sits behind the driver's seat because the LATCH system can't be used in the middle seat. I'm about 5' 4", and can move my seat forwards and back no problem. We have not tried it with my husband driving (he's a little over 6'), but I think it shouldn't be an issue.

One of my biggest concerns with purchasing this carseat was that installation would be hard (many reviews I read mentioned it was). Installing this thing is not hard at all if directions are followed. Pro tip: watch the Diono carseat installation videos as suggested and make sure you follow the directions! It took about 15-20 minutes to open the box, make sure the straps were in the right place for the little guy, and pop it into the car.

The only thing I do not love about this carseat are the cushions that go on the straps. They are very thick and sit kind of awkwardly on my guy. Note: I have not tried troubleshooting this, and I'm sure it's a user error as opposed to a design flaw.

If I could make one change, it would be to include the angle adjuster (sold separately by Diono) in with the purchase of the seat. If the seat doesn't work with my husband in the driver's seat, we will have to purchase one, but at the time of this writing (May 2020), they are next to impossible to come by.

With regards to Albee Baby, the price point couldn't be beat, and the shipping was FAST!
ProsBuilt of steel which makes it kind of heavy, but I also know my kid is super safe Folds up for flying/travel Design of carseat keeps the child cool Memory foam seats Can be used starting at birth
ConsKind of heavy Super thick cushioning for straps

Better than most
April 30, 2020
I bought this for my 2 year old hoping it would be a better fit compared to my chicco nextfit zip. It is much slimmer and not so bulky but it definitely was not as easy to install even after reading the instructions about 3 times. After installing it fit pretty good in my small truck but was still pretty tall. I love the safety ratings and the level of comfort but think they should work on some of their features. Plus I still have not received my cup holder which was suppose to come with it.
ProsSlim seat Good padding Great ratings
ConsHard to install Strap pads are way to bulking and do not work to protect their neck from the straps

Fits in car, but awful for an older kid
March 3, 2020
I bought this so my 3 kids could sit 3 in a row. My oldest is 6, and I am using it in booster mode. The thread for the seatbelt is AWFUL. The seatbelt gets twisted and stuck in it every time. I have to pull over and make sure it’s able to retract back. I’m very sorry that I bought this one. I should have gotten the one that doesn’t have the headrests on the side and has the red hoop for the seatbelt to thread through. Also, the instruction manual is so brief and doesn’t have many images to help you along. It took me forever to get it set up.
ProsNarrow enough for 3 across
ConsHard to set up, heavy, doesn?t stand up on its own so it?s tough to deal with during set up, using a shoulder/lap belt is terribly unsafe

Great convertible car seat
February 8, 2020
This is our first convertible car seat and we’ve been using it in my husband’s SUV for a few months since our girl turned one. It is very heavy and it took us a few hours to figure out the ins and outs of this car seat, but our toddler loves it especially during those 2+ hour road trips. Now we need another one for my sedan and it’d hard to find one to beat this one!

Great car seat. I’ve had the same for my son 7 years ago but this is obviously a bit updated in style. I like the cushion seating which makes it comfy for longer rides. I honestly don’t have any complaints. I ordered the same because my son has had his for 7 years and it is still in excellent condition. It’s great that they can use from birth until booster seat. Unless there is a recall I’m satisfied.

We love our new Diono Radian 3 RXT car seats. They are very well made, sturdy, and comfortable. The slim design makes having two in the backseat seem not so overwhelming and leaves enough room for an adult to still sit in between. They are on the heavy side a bit, but the steel framing is worth the extra bit of weight. Compared to other brands, these have adjustable angles once the baby has full head support, which means that my 6' husband doesn't lose much leg room in front.

Heavy & Confusing Install
October 20, 2019
My friends RAVE about this car seat. We bought it because we recently purchased a faulty car seat from a different company that we had to return. We are also expecting another little one and wanted a slim car seat for more space in the back seat. This is definitely slim and comfortable for our toddler. My only complaint is that it's insanely difficult to install. My husband and I struggled with this one. It's also HEAVY. Way heavier than we are used to. This one be an easy one to transport between vehicles.

Our daughter-in-law has two of these identical safety seats, one for each of her two youngest children. With a third child on the way, she wanted another Diono Radian 3 RXT All-in-One Car Seat so each child would have their own car seat as they grow. As grand parents of course we obliged. Grand pop researched and found Albee Baby online. The car seat was on sale at a good price, Albee Baby offered free shipping and delivery was lightening fast. We're very happy with our Albee online purchase, and of course our daughter-in-law is over the moon happy with her new car seat..

October 14, 2019
We purchased two of these for the backseat of our sedan; one forward facing in the middle seat and one rear facing on the passenger side. The fit side-by-side is perfect, and I highly recommend the seat angle adjuster from Diono for the rear facing seat so front seat passengers are not impacted as much. My reasoning for 4 instead of 5 stars is the installation. Our forward facing is installed with a seat belt due to weight restrictions, not using a LATCH. The instruction manual isn't thoroughly clear. The company's web videos on instructions aren't detailed enough either. I highly recommend The Car Seat Lady's web video's on installing this seat. She gives helpful tips throughout the process. Getting the seat tight enough using the seat belt required two adults (in fairness I'm 5 months pregnant).

Best Uses3 car seats across - If you don't need to fit 3 across there are other seats out there easier to install in my opinion.

Great seat, but so upright child’s head always flops forward
October 5, 2019
This seat is great for fitting 3 car seats across (we have this plus two infant seats in a Jeep Cherokee) and my tall 3-yr old seems to like it/find it comfortable. My only complaint is that it sits so upright/vertical that my son’s head always flops forward and down onto his chest when he falls asleep, which makes me nervous (safety - is he breathing?... and comfort - it can’t be comfortable?). In comparison, the Britax convertible seat he was in before this must have had at least a slight decline that encouraged his head to lay to the side when he fell asleep (for the most part). We’ve only done shorter car trips so far and I’m dreading longer rides when he falls asleep for longer periods of time.

I love this car seat. Easy to install and great fit for small cars or for 3 across.

Great Value, A Must for Families with 3 Kids

I have 3 kids, all under 4 years old. The older two brothers (4 and 2 years old) uses the Diono Radian 3RXT, while the infant sister uses an infant car seat. It fits well in my 2016 Honda Pilot and easy to install.

Super easy to install! Love our new car seat, feel extremely safe with my choice for my child’s new car seat. Love the covered back for a more appealing look in rear facing too.
