    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Gear Aid Seam Grip Seam Sealeris rated5.0out of5by2.
    Rated5out of5byfromBest I've tried - seal seams, camp matsI initially got this to fix a leak in a camp mat, but also used it to make spot repairs on a couple dry sacks, and re-seal the seams on an old dry sack and my Jandd hurricane panniers. One thing that makes this great for fixing leaky camp mats is that you don't need a piece of patch fabric to go over the hole like most camp mat repair kits require. Worked great for all of those uses. Sure it's a bit messy - what rubber cement isn't? - and takes some effort to get a nice looking finish (I didn't), but it worked well. I also used it on an Osprey pack that started pulling apart at a seam. After sewing up the hole, I worked this into the fabric so it wouldn't fray any more. 6 months later and it's still holding strong. The only fabric it hasn't stuck to all this time is the waterproof nylon on the Osprey (the other side of the seam that came out), which doesn't fray so it didn't need to stick. Overall, great product! Was glad to have it along on a couple extended camping/biking trips last summer. It dried fully for me (not sure why it stayed tacky for the other reviewer), and it's extremely pliable so it hasn't peeled off any seams just from being bent and beat around.

    Rated5out of5byfromMessy? Yes. Good stuff? Definitely.This sealer works and wears well. I've used different sealers over the past 25 years and they're all messy. Just do it...or get wet. Having to re-seal the seams is a necessary evil of using your gear for a long time. As noted by others, it WILL stick to itself. The longer it can cure, the better. I re-seal in the fall and let the gear sit in my garage attic over the winter unpacked. If you must pack your gear before it's fully cured and are worried about it sticking to itself, go with the tried and true method that was handed down to me through Scouting. Let it cure as long as you can, then lightly dust the new sealer with talcum powder. Yes, the seams will stand out as white lines, but they won't stick. The white will fade as the talcum wears off anyway.
