Absolutely Love!!
I love the Diono Radaint RXT! Love the quality of the car seats and the ease of putting it in and converting it! So easy to clean also... first day of use my child had a stomach virus; needless to say it came right off and I was able to throw it right in the washer!! Looking forward to purchasing another one for baby #2!!

So glad I finally made this purchase!!!
I was skeptical at first. I read at least 50+ reviews which were mostly positive. My Dr highly recommended this car seat for safety and longevity so I gave it a try.
Pros-Very sturdy and safe. -Very comfortable. -5 point harness easily unclipped with one finger. -Cup holder included and option to add more. -Additional Padding for any fit. Padding for shoulders and chest. Padding to keep lower clip from rubbing. Padding behind head. Padding under back and butt!! -Easy clip system in rear and front of car seat for even more security and stability. -Comes with padding under car seat (sold separately) to help make room and keep from damaging seat. -Arrived in under 5 business days. -Allows rear facing kids up to 44? whereas most are only 30?.
Cons-Initial set up takes about 20 minutes to get a good fit for your child but after that it took me maybe 5 minutes to transfer to truck from suv. -It is $314 normally but I found it here on sale for $259! - I wish it had a sun hood.
Best UsesRear facing, front facing and booster up to 120lbs.

Never been happier!
I never have to buy another car seat again. It's so comfortable my baby keeps falling asleep which is a plus. I installed with the adjuster in my small versa note hatchback and my husband 6'1 is still able to recline his seat as much as he needs. It was here on time with no issues. I will make another purchase if needed from this site!
ProsFast shipping. Very well packaged.
ConsVery heavy but excepted for a steal car seat.
Best UsesUse with Diono Adjuster for more recline room in car.

If you're considering this car seat, buy it! We've been through the Graco forever, Chicco Nexfit, and Maxi Cosi Pria 85 Max. Graco was fine, but not a comfy seat. Chicco was nice and plush, but a pain to get our kiddo in and out of (he's really tall) and Maxi Cosi didn't tighen properly (we had two). I wish I started with Diono! I was thrown off by its look at first. It looked like a booster, and with a market flooded of car seats, I assumed I was reading something wrong that it fit an infant. Silly me. I love it, my son loves it, and so does my husband. Highly recommend!
ProsComfortable Seat Easy tightening system Tall enough for bigger kids but still safe for tiny ones Folds and offers strap for travel

I followed installation but it seems unsafe for my infant.
I started using Diono seats after my two older children's seats expired. My middle child was around 9 months old at the time, my oldest nearly 3.5. Now, a year later, I have purchased an additional Diono seat for my infant. I LOVE these seats for my older children, but the seat does not recline enough for me to feel safe putting my infant into it-he appears to sit chin-to-chest in a seat that is determined to sit upright. I went to 3 different fire stations today to have them check the installation, and they all said that it was installed exactly as the manual describes...but that they too felt it was too far upright for a young baby. I won't be throwing my seat away, but I am upset that I will have to purchase an infant seat until my son will fit into the Diono. He is over 8 1/2lbs and should fit safely into the seat, as per advertisement.

Proud owner or the Rainer
Best carseat on the market in the US. We have proudly owned our Rainer since 2014. The cover is stained but the carseat in general is just as great as the day we bought it. Its safety features give me such peace of mind on the road.

Diono Rainier
I LOVE this car seat! I purchased it for my 8 month old daughter. I had another brand but they were too bulky, took too much space and my daughter would hate getting in it. The Diono is perfect! My daughter is tall for her age but is super comfortable in the Rainier. No more fighting to get her in her car seat. Just bought a second one for grandma and grandpa's car. :) Knowing she is safe is worth the extra weight. Highly recommended!
ProsChild fits comfortably Thin design to fit smaller cars comfortably Safety
ConsPattern is discontinued :( Wish they would have more colors and patterns to choose from.

My kids love them!
My kids may not like being held still for very long but they never complain about being uncomfortable or that they do not like the car seat. Their rear ends are big fans of this seat. I don't like how heavy and large it is when traveling through an airport but I think my small sacrifice is worth it. The safety, comfort, and longevity of this seat is unbeatable. I have purchased two, 18 months apart and would do it again.
ProsComfort, and safety

Only Carseat I would ever use!
I have two Diono Rainiers. My son is 3 1/2 and my daughter is 1 1/2. Both sit rear facing. These car seats are worth the money. They are sturdy and incredibly safe. My husband is a Firefighter and has seen car accidents involving children. He and I love our Diono's. We have flown with our car seats many times. They are heavy and can be cumbersome to travel with, but their durable construction is worth the weight. The safety of our children is more important than the weight and price of their carseats.

Very sturdy.
This is a very sturdy seat, the fabric is good my son doesn't seem to get hot sitting in the seat. It is easy to install. The one draw back it you have to remove the seat and reinstall when you need to adjust the height of the harness.
ProsStrong and sturdy
ConsMust uninstall car seat to adjust harness height.

Doesn't fit anywhere near the 57'
Even though it's advertised to accommodate a child up to 57' and/or 65lbs., the upper shoulder strap slots are at 17'. The shoulder straps have to come out at or above the shoulder. This seat won't handle a child over about 45'tall. It was useless to me since I was counting on it to accommodate a child in the 5 point harness for above the normal height. I'm going to have to return it. It's a nice seat, very sturdy and safe feeling, but it isn't able to be used as described. Albee was very prompt, and did their part. This problem is with Diono. They need to be realistic in their height accommodations.
ProsIt was very sturdy. Heavy. Well padded! Nice color. Albee did their part. This problem is Diono's specifics not being realistic.
ConsWon't accommodate a child over about 45', even though it states up to 57'. I do have to pay for return shipping šŸ¤

Special needs toddler
My special needs grand daughter is now 5. She will need to be in a car booster seat for many years to come. This does not make her look like a baby but a big girl. I searched high and low for one that as her Nanna I could help her get in and out of. I LOVE it! I told my daughter to come to this site and see if you have any more to replace hers.
ProsSpecial needs grand daughter can pull herself forward with ease and slip off the front till her feet touch the floor. Good grabbing sides for her to pull herself into the seat. The release buckle can be undone with ease for Nanna's older hands.
ConsWhen my grand daughter fell asleep her head had no place to rest, (rolled forward), like a car seat that reclines somewhat. But at age 5 that is not what most children need.

Just what we needed for extended rear-facing
We bought this to replace a Britax with a lower rear-facing limit. Our son is close to 35 lbs and over 37 inches tall at 2.5 and we wanted a seat where he could comfortably rear-face for at least another year. With the Rainier's 50 lb limit, we should be good to go. It fits fine behind the driver's seat on our Chevy Equinox, but I could see how it might be a tight fit without the angle adjuster on a smaller car. It's much easier for him to get in and out of by himself, and he seems to have a ton of leg room. It was a little tricky to install using the seat belt, but we managed to get it tight enough after some finagling. I would definitely recommend this seat.
Pros50-pound rear-facing limit Easy for child to climb in and out of
ConsSomewhat difficult to install Somewhat difficult to tighten straps

Amazing Seat!
This seat is great! Rear faces until 50lbs (which keeps my petite kids rearfacing for quite a while!) and then harnesses until 90lbs, then turns into a booster! Not to mention the amazing saving I got from Albee Baby! I will always shop here from now on for gear!

I regret getting car sear
I originally had the Diono RXT. We switched to the Rainer after a car accident. The wide head wings make it hard to install next to another car seat. The biggest issue is that it's impossible to get the straps tight enough. I have watched several videos and read online tips, and neither myself nor my husband can get it to tighten to the point where we can't pinch the strap on the shoulders. If you can't properly secure your child in the seat it doesn't really matter how expensive the seat was.

You can't go wrong with Diono. Their seats are durable and very safe. They are also slim so you can fit multiple car seats in your car. I love the easy fold and carry feature. The colors are great and the seat is comfortable and it is easy for my toddler to get in and out of.

The ONLY seat I will every own!!!
Having an 11 year old I have used many seats in the past. They were garbage! When I had my second child I researched and found the Rainier. Yes it is heavy but that is the steel alloy frame and I am ok with that as it only increases the safety for my child. The seat is easy to put together and install ( I installed 2 in less than 15 minutes in 2 different vehicles). Yes you read that right. I own 2!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE this seat and the ability for extended rear-facing due to the higher weight limits!

Should of bought it to begin with!
I care for my granddaughter daily and bought another carseat brand. It was fine, as she's grown I have found that it had become increasinly diffcult to get her in/out of. Her parents have had the Diono RXT from the begining, I should of bought this from the begining! She looks so much more comfortable, and the ease to help get her in & out is wonderful. We LOVE this carseat and cannot say enough wonderful things about it. We are expecting our second grandchild, planning on purchasing the same Diono for him. Thank You

Great car seat
We love this car seat, except for the fact that my daughters head ALWAYS falls forward when asleep. We even bought the diono angle adjuster, but it didn't work with our seats. She's still rear facing and would always wake up crying because her neck hurt. Had to put this car seat in our secondary car, and put our maxi cosi pria in our primary car until she faces forward.

I recommend this carseat to Everyone!
We actually bought this carseat as a spare for my parents to have. I was really fortunate that this came in to the store I work at as a return (never opened, they just changes their minds) so I took a chance a bought it, despite being thrown by the price. I had read the reviews and they were All phenomenal. Once I got the carseat out of the box to assemble it for transportation, I knew immediately my parents weren't getting this one. The padding in the seat alone is Amazing. The straps are so heavy duty and even the seat harness is padded and super comfy. My daughter sat in it for over an hour in the living room! It's heavy, but that's due to the solid steel frame (BONUS!) And we don't move it much anyways. The anchor attachments are Awesome. No terrible clips! Happy to know Diono is actually based in Seattle (We live across the sound) just in case. Really great product, absolutely blows away the Graco convertible carseat we let my parents have for our daughter instead!

head rest sits too low
This is a good product for younger children. I'm a bit concerned about the size of the seat for when my eldest is ready to transition to a booster seat. The head rest is already low for him, his shoulders are almost touching it. As well, the width is starting to get snug - he's not even 4 years old. The seat seems comfortable for him right now. Another concern is that the pull belt, to tighten the harness has started to fray... shouldn't do that.

we were recently in a car accident and i was advised to purchase all new car seats. but we currently own this one for our 4 year old and she didn't move an inch. she was so secure and safe. i just purchased 2 of the new models because i will not put my children in anything else after seeing our 7 year old daughter thrown forward in her current booster seat. well worth the money!

Love it.
Bought this seat to begin transitioning my 12 week old son into... he's just 16 pounds but I want him to have a safe car seat that would be more comfortable than the seemingly cramped infant carrier/car seat I received as a gift at my shower. I really like this seat. And thankfully so does he! He fits well in it and has fallen asleep in it several times without a problem just as he would the infant seat. His head does fall forward slightly when he sleeps but I don't think it will cause him any strain... the harness padding is so thick that it keeps his head more upright than side-lying. I love the fact it's tethered to the car fame... literally this thing does not budge after being properly installed! (Which was super easy after watching Car Seat Lady's YouTube tutorial) I think the midnight color is fantastic, I love black and the seat is functional and appealing to the eye. I can't wait for him to grow with this seat, I'm proud of my purchase. Feel I made the right decision!

We like that thus car seat will keep our daughter safe and rear-facing longer than other seats. It seems very comfortable. Only concern to have is it you have a tall driver, this seat does have a pretty far back position for rear-facing or recommend the seat wedge to elevate it.
ProsGreat head support, easy 5 point harness
ConsRear-facing angle of seat can cause it to not fit in some card properly without the seat wedge sold separately to place under the car seat.

CPST in love with a car seat
Love the slim design of the car seat. We have taken our Diono with us in several cars and rental vehicles. With the use of the angle adjuster (purchased separately) I am able to install in smaller vehicles (2009 Kia Spectra) with plenty of room for my large 5'4 frame and still allow more than 12" between myself and the front airbag and room for the passenger as well. We have also taken the car seat on the plane, with narrow seats. It fit quite well, but I would HIGHLY suggest purchasing the backpack and additional strap, as it is HEAVY! I'm a single Mama and dragging a 30 lbs kid and a 30 lbs cars seat. Better if you're installing in one vehicle and leaving it. LOVE LOVE LOVE the rearward facing tether, which limits the head excursion in an accident, as so few American car seat manufacturers offer this safety feature. My child is still REARWARD, having turned 6 this month (38 lbs and 39.5"), and is still fitting within the specifications for rearward, let alone the 90 lbs limit for forward facing. When forward facing a friend's child in the vehicle, it allowed other passengers ability to freely pass through the rear seating space, and allowed him to even rearward face at 4, and 48 lbs and 42" (he's a big boy). As previously mentioned, the ratcheting system is a pain, wish it could be better, and a no-rethread harness would be a Godsend for this.. We have had the Radian car seats since our first Sunshine kids 80, and have loved them ever since.

Beautiful like the picture
Looks very luxurious and feels very comfortsble and secure. It's a heavy seat, as expected. Installation was easy and straight forward. The angle adjuster foam is very useful, you should buy them together. It adds an extra step to the installation process which could be a minus. I also find it difficult to loosed the latch belt when removing the seat (quite impossible actually, my husband had to use a screwdriver to do it). Other than that I really like the seat and so does my 16 month old.

I love the car seat but...
I love the car seat. It seems sturdy and is a nice fit for my son. It was just hard for me to get past the fact that I was sent the wrong color. My son's favorite color is green so I ordered black forest and I was sent the one with gray in it. It was disappointing which is why I could only give it four stars instead of five.

Heavy but such good quality
I love this seat. It is super heavy so if you have to switch it between cars frequently then it's not the seat for you but it feels so soft and the quality is great. I love everything about the seat. Also, I didn't find it difficult or complicated to install. The only other thing is go ahead and get the seat adjuster and include it in the costs when deciding which carseat to get. But overall I live this seat and my daughter seems to as well. I definitely recommend.
ProsSo comfortable and such good quality and sturdy.
ConsVery heavy and you need to buy the angle adjuster cushion which is dumb. It should just come with it.

Great carseat
I decided to try the Rainer since I read it last 12 years and our Radian Rxt last 20. When it arrived, I was super happy with the look and feel of the material! Since already owned the radian, I knew the basic set up and got it done rather quickly. The only "issues" I had was that I couldn't figure out the body and head insert very well and moving the crotch strap still takes forever. My 10 month old loves her new seat and my Oldest is jealous she doesn't have a diono seat.

New version is better than old
I bought an old version for my son 1 years ago. This new version one is the second one I bought. The new version is lighter weight than the old version, so it's easier to carry while we're traveling.
