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.
Rated3out of5byArferfromEffective But ProblematicI've tried several different types of helmet-mounted mirrors, and while I like how adjustable this model is, I've had a problem with losing the mirror after it separated from the arm that holds it. The joint that connects the mirror to the arm is designed to allow the mirrow to clip in and out, and therein lies the problem: when the helmet is subject to routine jostling (i.e., packing and unpacking at a campsite) the mirror can be dislodged. After losing the mirror twice, and having to buy an entire unit to replace the missing mirror (you can't simply buy a replacement mirror), I resorted to hot-gluing a piece of string to the mirror and tying the other end to the flexible arm. Now, when the mirror gets dislodged, I don't lose it--at least not yet! Other than that problem, the mirror offers a good field of view for being small and it can be easily positioned just where you want it.

Rated1out of5bydmadfesfromJunk!The black plastic part seems sturdy enough, and it is sticking to my helmet with great tenacity, BUT the mirror keeps falling off. It has a sticky back, but does not come in contact with but a very small surface area on the plastic. I could probably glue it back on myself, but I am just going to return it.

Rated2out of5byOldHippiefromWAAAAY Too SmallTitle says it all; way too small. Can't get "the big picture" of what's approaching from behind. There are better (bigger) mirrors with a better way to affix them to the helmet on the market. The only problem is, they're about twice the amount - $40.00. Is $40 worth your life? It is for mine. Google "Safe Zone Helmet Mirror". You'll find it.

Rated4out of5bysnowcyclefromRoad Bike ReflectionI have had a handle bar mirror on my hybrid bike. Just bought my first road bike. I tried a helmet mirror and it drove me nuts. This seems a good solution. I am able to see cars, especially if they are wise enough to drive with their lights on. I do bump it getting off or on my bike, but it is easy to readjust. There aren't many options out there for newer road bikes. This seems the best I've been able to find.

Rated5out of5byGARY11fromwon't ride in the road without thisI have been using this for 3 years. the only problem is the mirror is easily knocked out of the socket. I lost 2 mirrors then I tied the mirror to the arm with thread. never lost another
also never adjust the mirror while riding just stop. I won't go on the street without my mirror.
Its a great product.

Rated4out of5byDIinLAfromWorks great with minor modificationsHighly motivated to use rear view mirror for recent start of commuting on city streets. Read extensive reviews and all products seemed to have limitations. This was in stock at local REI so I bought it realizing I may need to make some changes. I tied the mirror to the arm with a black thread. Substituted the manufacturer's adhesive with double sided sticky foam square adhesive. Easy Peasy. I did not find it hard to get used to and am really happy with how it functions. I wanted a helmet mirror and like that the arm is flexible. Plan to put a little nail polish on the ball of the mirror socket when it gets too loose.

Rated4out of5bylaryefrombetter than an eyeglass-mounted mirrorAfter using (and fighting with) eye-glass-mounted mirrors for years, I tried the helmet mirror, and won't go back... The mirror arm doesn't interfere with vision, it is easier to adjust, and is removable or swings up out of the way when off the bike. The only downside is it interferes a bit with using a helmet cover
