    Best rf seat?

    I would lke to keep my kids (2yrs, maybe 25lbs and 5mo and 20lbs!) rf as long as possible. Which car seat is recommended for this? I am thinking of the CA or Rad xt. We live in Canada and i have a Santa Fe.
    Thank you!!!!

    Considering that your child(ren) are 2 years old, my opinion is the Radian XTSL. Awesome seat, not too bulky, comfortable, pretty easy install and has the highest weight limit for RF (up to 45lbs!). If you really love RFing than going with this seat it is a no brainer.

    If you want to be daring check out the Britax Multitech, the limit is 55lbs RFing!

    The MT is not legal (nor available) for use in Canada.

    The XT is on sale at Sears this week for $300 (reg $330).

    I have a Radian XT in my Santa FE RFing and it fits well.

    IIRC, the XT only goes to 40 lbs RF. You have to get the XTSL if you want the maximum 45lb RF weight.

    None of the Radians are called "SL" in Canada. You can't purchase an XT that doesn't RF to 45lbs though (unless you're buying old stock).
