The biggest issue that we have experienced when it comes to finding the perfect car seat for our child has to concern the balance between protection and form. We have reviewed a number of car seats that are heavy and unwieldy to the point that it becomes difficult too readily move the seat between cars. On a similar note we have also covered car seats that seem to skimp on the overall amounts of safety that they provide. We received the Radian R100 for review and think we have found the perfect balance of safety and ease of use.
The foam that comprises the seat provides a cozy environment for the infant while the 5-point harness is unmatched in the level of safety that it provides. Adjustments both in terms of fitting the seat and the child are done in an easy fashion many times allowing a parent to do so with one hand. The system latches well into a wide variety of cars, further increasing a family’s ease to pick up and go. Even when we were using a rental car, snapping in the Radian R100 was a snap.
The instructions that are provided with the R100 are clear and will ensure that the seat is installed perfectly. One can feel just as confident that their child is kept safe no matter what installation of the R100 – rear or front facing – that they may currently utilize.

We have reviewed the Diono Olympia Convertible Plus Booster Car Seat , the Dreamliner Travel Bassinet , and the Tech Tote . Expect to spend about $240 on this car seat, which is available from a bevy of online and brick-and-mortar locations.
