    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.

    Suunto M-9 Wrist Compass is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great primary or backup compass I purchased this compass so I could easily orient myself while hiking. It's accurate and easy to use. If you want something in between a cheap button compass and a lensatic compass, get this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect choice I am very pleased with this wrist compass. It is much more comfortable to wear than I expected (don't like wearing jewelry etc) and don't even notice it is on unless I'm actually using it. The included strap is more for a large man's wrist, I have a very small wrist which the band is much too big for, I bought a woman's silverfoot watch strap to easily replace it. It works great! Very, very happy with this wrist compass.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good compass, easy to use The Suunto M-9 is a good compass in this price range and being on your wrist is super easy to use although it must be held flat. It seems more sensitive to flatness than other compass's I use. The only improvement to the compass itself would be to upgrade with Suunto's global needle, but that would change the price point and the compass would probably not be as thin as it is now -- trade-offs. BTW, the strap can be made to fit a smaller wrist by moving the compass closer to the buckle allowing more of the strap to double up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gift from a brave recon vet! A brave Recon vet who lost his leg in service gave me this. It was his backup while deployed. I have worn it for a while now and is it always reliable. As he had learned, and I later, technology is nice but can easily fail in when truly needed. My advise, learn land navigation, and always have a plan b. This is great plan B item.
