    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Rated5out of5byfromStay dry and stay focusedThis is a great cap for any kind of activity that involves heavy downpours. Such as Fly Fishing! There's nothing worse then being freezing cold and wet while trying to cast to that rising trout.

    Rated5out of5byfromThis is a special hat!I bought this hat knowing I would be golfing the next day in very wet weather and it was great. It kept rain off my glasses and my neck so I didn't have to wear a hooded coat and could stay flexible. The conditions were windy and there were several times I saw other golfers chase their 'baseball' style cap that was blown off. The draw string was excellent and only needed during big gusts.

    Rated5out of5byfromPerfectThe strap kept the hat on and the wide brim allowed me to take photos during a windy and misty whale watch. Just what I needed.

    Rated5out of5byfromPerfect for cold rainy places.The Seattle Sombrero is the perfect rain hat for those of us in cooler, rainy, climates. I wore mine for a week straight in Kodiak, Alaska, and it performed beautifully, keeping me dry and warm. The chin strap was comfortable, the hat itself fit well, stayed dry, and never lost its shape. I've washed it once and it came out of the washer looking like new. For those concerned that the liner is too warm, there's a reason this hat is named the "Seattle" sombrero. It's meant for cooler, rainy climates. The soft fuzzy liner was a welcome addition in the 40 degree rainy weather I encountered. Love this hat!

    Rated5out of5byfromOne way to cover the chrome dome........Hat fits well, soft, easy to use and store, keeps out the sun from the head and neck, keeps water from running down the shirt collar, just great all around.........

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat hat fair priceAlthough a bit pricey it cost no more than others I had looked over. Plan on using the strap when in areas prone to wind, such was the case on a summit hike to Mt. Lassen in Northern California. Also while kayaking on lakes where the wind can come in short bursts, such wind can catch you by surprise and having that strap on will keep you from chasing for your hat. Not good at the 10,400+ foot level, its a long way down the mountain to try and catch a hat.
