    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.

    by fromOuch! These boots tortured my feet. I used mole skin, wrapped my feet in tape, and did everything short of wearing them to bed. After 6 consecutive steep hikes of 10 miles each, I gave up. The toe box is too small and the top of the boot bore into my foot. My foot slid foreword going downhill and crammed my toes. There is ankle shift. The inserts were trash; I replaced them with ortho inserts which solved that problem. The boots look cool. REI took them back no questions asked, even after "break-in" miles. Do yourself a favor, pay extra and get some Zamberlans (Vioz in my case). What a difference! My wife and I did our normal climb this past weekend and I was skipping like a little girl coming home. The dog may enjoy chewing on these boots.

    by fromSerious Quality Issues My wife and I bought a previous model of this boot and it was GREAT -- very comfortable, great support -- until it literally fell apart: meaning, my wife was 50 feet into the trailhead when the sole of her right boot simply fell off. I wrote to Asolo, but they claimed that the type of bonding used in the boot would be expected to degrade over time, and implied that this was common to every boot. However, an slightly less expensive boot (not Asolo) bought slightly earlier has held up perfectly, so this clearly isn't a universal problem. Bottom line: it's easy to get seduced by Asolo's comfort, support, and technology, but they need to stand by their products if the technology goes awry. And they don't. Bad form, Asolo.

    by fromNot for use with orthotics Generally use these boots for day hikes. Have put about 15 miles per week on these boots for three months but still can't break them in. Really found nothing good about them except for a very snug fitting heel. The outter sole is very hard and almost brittle. Most of the sole cushioning comes from the innersole. If you remove the innersole to insert orthotics you have virtually no cushioning or shock absorption and I have suffered stone bruises from just short walks over light gravel.

    by fromGreat Fit, Poor Construction While these boots fit me extremely well, are light weight and have great traction, they have some serious quality issues. As a Wildlife Technician for the Forest Service here in Arizona, I put a lot of desert miles on my boots--mostly off trail. I am returning my second pair of these boots (as is my female co-worker for the exact same reasons) in a year for poor construction. The glue on the first pair failed between the sole and toe box on both boots, leaving me to contend with flapping boots in remote canyons--not fun. The stitching on my month-old pair is now failing and the sole is beginning to show signs of pulling away from the toe box again on both boots. I do not recommend these boots.

    by fromManufacturing Defect I had been hiking for years with just running shoes but after foot surgery my usual pair left me limping. The surgery left me with my right foot 1/2 size smaller and 2 sizes wider than the other foot. Also I was no longer able to bend it very much. I knew it was going to be tough to find a pair of boots that would allow me to hike comfortably. I tried on EVERY hiking boot at REI(props to the shoe sales people at the HB store). I hit Nirvana with the mens Asolo Fugitive. It was the only one that fit me and had a stiff enough sole to support my foot. I wore them for a couple of days at work and did about 5 hikes with them. Finally they were broken in and my happy feet and I spent 4 days hiking all through Zion and Bryce over Labor Day weekend. By the end of the trip both soles were completely coming apart from the uppers. Of course, REI was great and took them back with no problem but now I'm without hiking boots. It could be it was my unusual situation or just an isolated event but the other recent reviews say otherwise. Our local [...]store recently had a used gear sale and there were many Asolos there with the same problem. Maybe they should consider switching to the Vibram sole? I think Asolo makes a great boot but they really need to get a handle on their quality control.

    by fromVERY Disappointing I bought these boots in preparation for hiking Mt. Whitney on the recommendation of a friend that had recently purchased them for himself. The boots seemed to be well-made and performed well on several practice hikes in Malibu and up Mt. Baldy. After about 3 months of use (and right in the middle of my ascent of Whitney), the toe caps began to detach from the boot. Unbelievable! Having spent nearly $200 on a pair of boots, I figured I'd at least get a season or two out of them...wrong! Also, the break-in time is pretty substantial with these boots as well. Over several months hiking on varied terrain, I routinely got blisters on my heel/achilles regardless of the types and combinations of socks I used. Do yourself a favor and stay away from these cheaply-made boots!! Luckily, REI graciously took them back and I was able to get a different pair that have worked better for me thus far...

    by fromNo Go These boots were great while they lasted, less than 2 years. This is my second pair of Asolo's, and will be my last ever. The sole is separating from the rest of the boot. For the money there are better boots out there, I hope I can find them.

    by fromGrade: F Don't be fooled!!!!!! I have loved other Asolo boots, but I can't begin to describe my disappointment in these boots. Maybe it's my foot size (13). FIRST WEAR IN THE FIELD: WAY too hot (hotter than full leather Vasques) NOT breathable. NOT waterproof beyond rubber (first step up to the laces and you'll have a soaker, just like I did). Frayed laces on BOTH boots (seriously, first wear?) Stinky (and I'm not known for stinky feet) Will NOT stay tied. Lowest eye fails about every 10-15 minutes, particularly when contouring. Do not take insoles Difficult to clean off (get leather). If you actually WORK in your boots, buy something else. REI should not sell these boots for every day use.
