The Radian line of convertible seats from Diono used to be called R100, R120, and RXT until the voluntary recall in late 2017. These Radian car seats were re-introduced to the market in 2018 with new respective names - Radian 3R* for R100, 3RX* for R120, and 3RXT* for RXT.

These seats can be used in airplanes, yet, they can be challenging to carry unless they are placed in a bag or equipped with straps.
These Radian seats sure are easy to fold, but they are quite heavy to carry. Perhaps Diono has received such feedback because it also offers travel accessories. If your budget allows, be ready to spend a little money on the carry strap.*
