Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat, Shadow
1.  Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat, Shadow by Diono
The list author says:
  "Skip the infant bucket seat and save some money by getting this. This seat works from birth to at least 4yrs. Baby wear while you're out, since those bucket seats can't go on carts (huge safety hazard) and will pull out your back lugging around! This seat fits 3 across in a back seat. It's a steel frame so it's the safest there is, and it's comfy. Won't expire for 10 years! Great investment."
