The Rainier – The New Diono Convertible Car Seat Review and a Giveaway!

I have three kids, and in that time I’ve learned how to spot a good car seat. I’ve also learned that a convertible car seat is a must. Kids grow so fast! If you don’t have a convertible car seat, you end up shelling out money left and right as they grow. That’s why I love the Rainier. It’s a new Diono convertible car seat, and it’s wonderful.Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 11.43.40 AM

When I look for a car seat, I look for safety, security, and durability. In that order. I want to ensure that my kids are safe at all times. God forbid we get into an accident. But if we do, I want to know that my kids are in the best possible seat available. That’s why I love the Diono convertible car seat, the Rainier. This convertible car seat is made of ultra durable materials, and it has the safety features I look for in a car seat. Add to that that it’s convertible, and I’m sold.Diono


The Rainier is top of the line. This Diono convertible car seat is chock full of safety features that leave me feeling safe and secure in the knowledge the my kids are safe and secure. Its features include:

  • A full steel frame with aluminum reinforced sides
  • Reinforced, extra deep sidewalls with energy absorbing foam for the highest level head and body protection
  • Rear facing seat accommodates children from 5 – 50 pounds
  • Front facing seat accommodates children from 20 – 90 pounds and up to 57 inches tall. That’s the highest capacity on the market.

unnamed-1This Diono convertible car seat is a powerhouse in safety. When the kids are in this seat, they’re basically sitting in Fort Knox. That makes me feel good, because when it comes to my kids, their safety is paramount. More than convenience, more than looks, safety is king. Although the Rainier model from Diono has all the rest. =D

It’s no surprise to me that the Rainier is such a great seat. This Diono convertible car seat is the best, because it’s made by the best.

I love the Rainier. I think it’s the penultimate in convertible car seats. If you have small children, I encourage you to give the Dino convertible car seat a look. It’s tough, it’s safe, and it’s easy on the eyes. It’s just an all-around great convertible car seat.

    The New Diono Rainier is the ultimate in car seat safety with new extra deep side walls providing enhanced side impact protection taking Diono car seats to a whole new level.

  2. Jessica says

    I like that it sits low on vehicle seat to make it easy for kids to get in. Thanks for the chance to win!

  3. Richard Hicks says

    I like many of the features but especially the SuperLATCH system for easy and SECURE installation

  4. Cynthia C says

    I like the SuperLATCH system for easy and SECURE installation. The best car seat is not safe if improperly installed.

  5. D Schmidt says

    My favorite feature is Highest forward-facing capacity of any car seat in a 5-point harness: from 20-90 lbs (up to 57″ in height)

  6. Abigail says

    Besides all of the great safety features (like extended rear facing use and high weight limits) which are obviously the most important factors, I really like the aesthetic look of this car seat!

  7. Claudia says

    I like how high the weight goes, for both RF and FF. Also that it’s thin and doesn’t take a lot of room.

  8. Natalie says

    My favorite feature is the aluminum reinforce headrest that has 12 height positions for adjustable head support.

  9. Sara M says

    I love that this is an all in one seat that you can use for every stage. My daughter is 2 & I’ve already had to buy 3 different seats.

  10. Debra S says

    I love all the padding, and the safety-ness of the sides. Besides being safer, these are a lot nicer for the bit older kids, to SLEEP in. My goodness, even our four and five year olds seem to always fall asleep whenever we go anywhere that is longer than 10 minutes! LOL With this seat, they are SAFE. I love it. I need one.

  11. Alyssa Waters says

    I love the fact that I will only have to buy one carseat for the time my little one is in a carseat. 5Lbs- 50Lbs rear facing (I am a HUGE believer in extended rear facing) & forward facing up to 90lbs. I personally believe a child should be in a car seat for as long as possible, my oldest is 5 & still in a car seat. Now we are due with baby 3 in just 4 weeks & looking for a car seat to last us our whole car seat journey.

  12. Tiffany Dover says

    I love the Reinforced extra deep sidewalls lined with energy-absorbing foam give Rainier superior head and body protection!

  13. Stephanie Phelps says

    M y favorite feature is the SuperLATCH system for easy and SECURE installation. This is such an awesome seat!

  14. Rachele W. says

    I love that this seat grows with your child and has limits that encourage extended rearfacing, extended harnessing…etc!!! The slim profile are also huge selling features. With 4 kids, every inch in the backseat counts!!!

  15. LaTanya says

    Highest forward-facing capacity of any car seat in a 5-point harness: from 20-90 lbs (up to 57″ in height)

  16. Erica Moore says

    I would love to win this car seat for my husband’s car. We only take my car when we have the kids because it’s too difficult to move the convertible carseat between our vehicles.

  17. Lisa g says

    with baby #4 on the way we can’t be buying a million different car seats for each stage of each child’s development. so having one that is good till age 12 is wonderful. Crossing my fingers!

  18. Vero M says

    I am loving the colors but most importantly the energy absorbing EPS foam and side impact protection provides added safety.

  19. Audra O'Hara says

    For convenience, I like that it sits low for easy boarding; for safety, I like the reinforced extra deep sidewalls lined with foam.

  20. Natalie Schwartz says

    I like that it allows for extended use of the 5-point harness. We have one for our oldest and we love it! I would love to win this to use when our youngest has outgrown her infant car seat!

  21. Hayley says

    My favorite feature is that it is rear facing for up to 50lbs! The infant seat that we have now and are about to outgrow is only rear facing to 22lbs!

  22. Laura H says

    I like that it’s convertible so it can grow with your child-no need to buy another car seat later.

  23. Holly hanks says

    Hit Post too soon! I love that it grows with your kid, that it is slimmer than other seats for more rooming the car, and the fold up feature for carrying….since my husband and I travel a lot and will be out of town for both sides of our family soon!

  24. Terra Heck says

    I like that it folds flat for travel and has Reinforced extra deep sidewalls. Thanks.

  25. Michelle says

    With its extended rear-facing capabilities, it can comfortably seat rear-facing children from 5 to 50 lbs and forward facing children from 20-90 lbs in 5-point harness mode. Additionally it converts to a booster for children between 50 – 120 lbs or up to 57″ in height.

  26. Chelsea Rutledge says

    I love that the car seat truly works from a little baby up to toddler! I love that you only have to have 1 car seat from birth up! :)

  27. Keara B. says

    I love the huge weight range for rear-facing! Plus, the fact that it’s narrow is a big plus for my tiny car. :)

  28. Jen St Pierre says

    love the steel frame & diono’s promise if you get into a serious crash they Will replace your seats.

  29. jenn giannetto says

    I like that it is a space saving design, it can be tough to fit bulky carseats in the backseat when you have 2 kids!

  30. Rennie D says

    I like the extended rear-facing capabilities. My little one is always so squished in his current seat so now we have it forward facing.

  31. brittani adams says

    SO many awesome features!!!! 12 positions on the headrest? SUperlatch system is great. And it also folds flat???? Incredible!!!

  32. Alicia Johnston says

    Convertible carseats are the best! With out first child we had one and it’s saved us a load of money. We’re in the process of looking for the perfect one for our boy who’ll be born this October. This carseat looks perfect and super safe<333 it

  33. Jennifer Cervantes says

    I love that it is the only car seat you need, it grows with your child instead of having to replace them as they grow.

  34. Kasie Tillman says

    I like the extended rear facing ability! I also like the look of the seat. It’s older kid friendly. It looks likes less of a “baby seat”. Diono makes quality, safe seats!

  35. Michelle S says

    What I love about the Diono car seat is the five point harness system, and that it has a full steel frame providing better structure.

  36. Jennifer Flores says

    I love that it folds flat for storage!! My attic is full of baby things and I wish more folded flat.

  37. Heidi Daily says

    I love the superlatch system, and that it folds up, and the steel frame, so many great features on this seat!
