Best car seat EVER
July 12, 2014
We are pregnant with baby #6 due in the next few weeks and we needed a car seat with a 5 point harness that was still comfortable and safe, yet slimmer in design! This Radian R100 seemed to fit the bill! We are a big Britax family so we are used to paying for quality car seats, but they are so much wider, and with our 6th child due, we needed to fit 3 car seats in the back seat of our mini van to get ready for the baby! When the Radian arrived, we were pleasantly surprised! Even though it was slimmer in design, it didn't feel cramped to my 5 year old and was very comfortable! We are planning to buy 2 more in the coming months! Easy to install and very well made! Love the fabric and color! Also, as a side note...my 5 yr old has high functioning Autism! She has made a habit of sliding the 5 point harness middle strap down and pulling one of her arms out occasionally, but the way the 5 point harness is done with the Radian, she has not been able to adjust it like the ones in the past! Very secure! And, she can buckle in all by herself easily, but can't unbuckle, which is key! I also debated on getting the more expensive Radians, but we are so glad we went with the R100! It has everything you could need for an older child! The only reason I would go with another one is if I had a younger child that needed the extra padding that the more expensive Radians offer! We still love our Britax, but for our older kids, Radian is the perfect fit...literally!
