    Item # 631077

    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    Coghlan's Emergency Tinderis rated2.6667out of5by3.
    Rated2out of5byfromEhh...Ehh... Pretty unimpressive, basically there're just cotton balls covered in wax. The tinder is really hard to open to expose the fibers. As for the burn time (about 5-7 minutes) is pretty good, but not long enough to ignite wet sticks... It does the job I guess, but I prefer the zippo tinder sticks, or the wet fire brand. Unimpressive. 2/5

    Rated1out of5byfromUnimpressiveI used this product on a high altitude, very rainy, backpacking trip and found it unimpressive. It was difficult to get the fibers exposed if your fingers are wet and cold. And they did not produce enough heat for a long enugh time to get slightly damp tinder going. I'm going back to the WetFire brand fire starters. Now if REI would start carrying those again it would be great.

    Rated5out of5byfromCatches every time!I've used these during summer trips and in the wet/snowy woods of the midwest to start fires. They are small and easy to use. Even if your fingers are too cold to work and get fibers exposed, they will still light by match or spark.
