Having already owned a Diono carseat, I was super excited at the opportunity to review a Radian RXT (in plum- perfect for my girly girl)

This collapsible storage bin pops open when needed for those extra toys or for trash. The drawstring top keeps items secure. Water resistant fabric. Collapses flat for storage and travel. 7” W x 8” H. Takes Bag It disposable trash bags (not included).
Completely protects your car upholstery against scratches and dents from a car seat whether it’s rear-facing or forward-facing with partitioned squares of high density foam. With top and bottom grip surfaces to prevent car seat slip and the handy front organizer pocket, it really is the ultimate undermat. Waterproof, washable fabric is easy to care for. Works with all infant carriers, car seats and booster seats.
My take: I have reviewed several car seats during my blogging experience and let me tell you that none compare to the Radian RXT. We have used our first Radian RXT for two solid years with my oldest who is seven years old and 75 pounds. He is so tall that my pediatriacian has told me numerous times he will be taller than me by the age of twelve (I am 5’7) and before Radian RXT we had serious problems finding a seat that fit him comfortably. My parents live 4 hours away and we make numerous trips a year and it is vitally important to me that all of my children are as safe as possible and I have complete piece of mind when using the Radian RXT. Take a look at the heavy duty frame used with each seat:
This car seat is not like so many that are so easy to lift and remove and quite simply I prefer the heavier well-made seats because I know they will optimally provide the best protection available. This is the ideal seat because you can use it from newborn to 120 pounds, as a rear facing to a front facing seat and I use this seat instead of the booster seat because I love it so much. When we travel this seat folds like none other that I have seen. Here is a picture of our newest folded flat:
As for the Ultra Mat and Pop-Up Trash Bin, both of these are great accessories to have in the car. I love how the Ultra Mat provides protection for the entire length of the car seat and it has those great pockets that are handy for strorage. The Pop-Up Trash Bin is great because it is so lightweight and when not needed folds completely flat for easy storage.
