Looking at getting a Radian for DS and just wondering what the differences are between the R100, R120 and RXT.

Also, if you have/had a Radian...which one did you choose, and why?

Thanks for the help and advice!

The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
for children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.

I prefer headwings, so that would be my choice (RXT). I also prefer the cover options for the RXT.

All models are equally safe though, so I'd go with the one that fits your budget the best.

R100- rear faces to 40 pounds; forward facing harness to 65 pounds; boosters from 50-100 pounds

R120- rear faces to 45 pounds; forward facing harness to 80 pounds; boosters from 50-120 pounds

RXT- has adjustable headwings; rear faces to 45 pounds; forward facing harness to 80 pounds; boosters from 50-120 pounds

I bought our Radian 2 years ago, and chose the XTSL, which is like the RXT since the names changed. The headwings are great for when the kiddos fall asleep, and I like having the highest RFing limits I can.

I bought a R120 about a month ago and I love it! Over the weekend I purchased a rxt. I like that it has the headwings but we are still getting used to them. Either way, personally....I don't think you can go wrong.

The R120 & rxt also come with the infant and toddler padding inserts. I don't believe the R100 does....I could be wrong. Then again, for some that may not be a deal breaker.

I have a Radian 65 (same as R100 minus the boostering feature) and a Radian XTSL (same as RXT minus the boostering feature). Both are really great seats, but I prefer the XTSL over the 65. The XTSL has the headwings and has much better covers. The 65 cover is so boring. But seriously, any of the models are awesome. However, I think the R120 (used to be Radian 80) is actually a waste because it isn't any bigger than the R100 but is supposed to last longer - how is that possible if it's the same size seat??? Unless you have a heavy kid (like 90+ percentile), all 3 seats will be outgrown by height at exactly the same time, and I think most kids outgrow by height before weight.
