    I got my radian xt!!!!

    It was waiting for me when I got home!

    I've had a whole 5 minutes to play with it, and thought I would post to see if anyone has any questions I might be able to answer!

    Defrost will be over when she gets off of work to take some pictures (my good camera doesn't work for close-ups, and my cell camera takes crappy pics).

    YAY!

    So far I LOVE IT, and so does DS!

    OMG! I can't wait to see it. I really need a radian and keep debating between this and the 65. I have had the 65 before and hate the lack of SIP.

    Can't wait to see pics! Congrats on your new seat.

    Debbie delivers pizza and she gets off usually between 7 & 9 Mountain Time...

    You reach in, through the cover and push it up and down - it's VERY easy - think Evenflo Triumph Advanced or how the Safeguard Child Seat and Frontier adjust SO EASY, and through the front.

    Re: I got my radian xt!!!!

    The install questions are going to take some time.

    Debbie will have her Mazda 5 with her, but I don't know if we can try to install in it tonight or not - it's cold out there, and I am a single mama, so I need to make sure my kids are in a good mood and not fighting if I want to play in the driveway with Debbie.

    The Radian has been incompatible rear facing in my center 3rd row, so we can try that to see if the new boot is helpful there.

    Yay! I'm so happy for you! We can't wait to get ours, but we're waiting on the Malibu, which I've been told won't be out until Feb. What color did you get?

    Re: I got my radian xt!!!!

    Ooh I get so excited to see pics of new seats!

    I'm anxious to see if the SIP causes head slump like it looks like it might. When we finally get to buy a carseat it's between the TF and the XT (assuming no issues and it fits in my car).

    It *might*

    The wings DO cause a bump, but it's less of a bump than the Nautilus or Boulevard.

    Re: I got my radian xt!!!!

    I want to see how the headrest adjusts and is held in place.

    I want to see the difference between the new and old chest clip.

    I want to see measurements of the slot heights.

    I want to know what all was changed visibly.

    and lots of pics with kids in it!!

    This has nothing to do with your quote but did you used to get your kiddos pictures taken at Lifetouch/JCPenney's?

    They look like some kids we had up in our studio a couple years ago??

    Ummmm, patiently waiting for photos.

    Oh, and do the wings push the head forward like the Britax Boulevard seats?
