    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.

    Coghlan's Fire Pasteis rated5.0out of5by2.
    Rated5out of5byfromExcellentI have used this to start fires in wet and cold conditions multiple times and it is very effective. Even though it is heavier than I would like I always carry this in conditions where getting wet and hypothermia could be a problem. Think about it - if you are wet and cold and need to start a fire quickly - are you going to be able to create ideal fire starting conditions quickly? For me the answer is no many times. Like others said I found I can't ignore good fire starting practices but this really helps speed things up and makes up for some less than perfect conditions.

    Rated5out of5byfromWorks as it shouldI kept a tube of this stuff with me for a while and need to use it last winter. Forecast was for no rain but cold. Well, that changed and we were stuck in freezing rain with snow flurries at night. Very little of anything was dry. I used bout 1/4 of the tube and it took a flame quickly and burned long enough to dry out and ignite kindling and smaller sticks. This of course resulted in being able to dry out larger sticks and thus sufficient fire to warm up and relax a bit. Yes, it adds a little bit of bulk and weight but when you need to use it then you wont care about that. If I had to carry only two fire aids. It would be this and a Swedish FireSteel.
