I have two SK Radian xtsls. My kids use them straight out of their infant seats (between 6 and 12 months) until they move to a booster. We don't allow boosters before age 6 so I feel they're a great buy.
-Low pro for putting in babies or passing big kids
-High shell for extended rf and ff harnessing
-Ability to grow past the top slots when ff
-Rf tether capability
-while it's great for a toddler, it looks like a 'big kid seat' so no complaints from my older kids about using them
-LATCH security. We won't use it
-again, low pro. I'd kinda like something there....
-Ratchet harness adjuster
-Safestop rules (keeps me from being able to easily share seats between siblings/friends)
-rf recline angle without the (ADDITIONALLY PURCHASED!) aa
-isnt transferred easily. You really need a backup seat for that
-eh, the crotch buckle is a bit short, especially for older kids
-chest clip is enormous, especially on babies.
Overall, they met my needs when I bought them two years ago (for a 3 across) and they've become my full time seats. I actually sold my Nautilus' because they were sitting for so long. I love the long lifespan and that I can rely on them to last us to dedicated booster stage. I'm not a fan of combo seats so this works for us. I am certain I'm forgetting something up in my lists.
