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 of5bylittletonfrankfromPerfect ChoiceI became introduced to the White Mountains in 2011 and am an avid hiker in them. Recently I took a map & compass course through REI because I want to do bushwhacking in the back country. The compass is exactly what I wanted and, coupled with the USGS maps, I can wander without getting lost.

Rated5out of5byItsumofromSuunto M-3D CompassI have always used a military compass but hated dealing with the declination. The Suunto M-3D has an adjustment for the declination which makes this compass ideal to use with topographical maps. I find this best for making routes where I can use the compass on the map as well. The construction is of high quality and the price is reasonable.

Rated4out of5bysimonsj4bfromDon't leave home without itIn some ways this seems like a silly review, after all it's a compass, right? Well, not so fast. The point here is, it's very durable and includes all the basics you need, such as the most common scales. The most important feature is the ability to set the regional declination, using a small screw underneath. Set it and forget it, not withstanding the declination does change over time.
So many people get themselves in trouble because, "we were just out on a day hike and we had a map."
It is VERY common that not all the trails are on your map. I can tell you from personal experience how quickly an innocent little day hike can go wrong.
I also use a GPS, this combined with a reliable non electronic compass is a must.
This is a simple quality product. The minute you find yourself saying "which way is the trail head, wish I had a compass," is a minute too late.

Rated5out of5byZillaRunnerfromWorks well.For our 1st adventure race(provide map with lattitude/longitudes) must plot destinations then orienteer to them while hiking/running, biking, canoeing. During the day and night.
It worked well in all conditions. Was easy to read.

Rated4out of5byNeosafefromNearly the perfect compassThis is a great compass. The other reviews hits all the finer points so I will point out that I prefer to get gear that has multiple functions. Example many compass's do not come with a magnifying lens. The lens can be used to read smaller detail on maps but also can be used to start a fire with sunlight. This compass magnifier works to start fires if needed.
My only con is I wish they would devise a system to hold the compass declination tool. Currently you can place the key around the lanyard but then it sticks out. A better design would be for the key to attach to the bottom of the compass.

Rated4out of5byadnorgardfromGood all around compassGood compass from a company that is the Gold Standard as far as compasses go. It is a little on the big side but I do prefer it over a small thumb compass.

Rated5out of5byHiking New MexicofromI would buy this product againI had a Silva compass and it was junk. Big air bubbles with higher elevations. This compass gives me confidence, adjustable declination was easy but don't lose the key, red lanyard makes it easy to find if you drop it (once so far), and has all the features one might want except angle of terrain. I personally do not
like the fragile mirror sighting option on other models since I used those n the military. Magnifier is useful as well.
