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.
Rated4out of5byJoshuatheWanderfromRugged and ready for a beatingI am a fan of anything that makes you get dirty. I will be the first to make a new path through the woods and getting lost is more fun than using the same run down trials. I bought a pair of Columbia boots for the winter and hunting. They are 200 grams of insulation so when it came spring they proved to be to warm for any kind of day hikes. It was a toss up between a pair of Danners or the Asolo. Since you can only get the Danners I wanted online I decided to go for the Asolo Fugitive GTX in the Greensboro REI. THEY ARE BEAST! I went traversing through streams, over rocks, under rocks, rocks rocks rocks and more rocks. I was sure I would put a dent in these shoes but not at all. They almost looked more pristine than when I first got them! As with any boot a break in time is needed. Only thing I saw that became kind of bothersome was on the front of my ankle area, where that main vein goes down your leg and crosses your ankle, became irritated with the tongue of the shoe. I was doing a heel lock style lacing and switched over to a looser ankle grab since I knew the terrain. I will give it more time to wear in and see if this part of the show will give a little more. Over all I LOVE this boot. I cant wait to punish it out in the Wilson Creek Gorge in NC this spring for our backpacking trip.

Rated5out of5byLibertySatfromGreat work boot tooI bought these boots almost exactly a year ago.
Comfortable on first day and still very comfortable.
First pair of non Red Wings in decades for me.
I have worn them almost everyday, all day since.
They are my work boots but wear them most of time unless I am in flip flops.
I am totally blue collar and am rough on my boots.
These boots still have a year left in them but are really taking on the look of work boots.
I am getting another pair tomorrow but won't wear them at work till this pair is done.

Rated5out of5byLuv2ski35fromSo good I bought a 2nd pairBought a pair of these 6 yrs ago and they finally wore out.... They were so good, so comfortable, lasted so well that even after trying on other boots, I couldn't justify any other boot. Stick with what you know works and lasts. Runs small.... Salesman said I should wear a 11.5-12, 10.5 is what I ended up going with.

Rated1out of5byBD68fromToo much Money for this disappointmentSeems like a manufacturing defect with the lace hooks
Padding is unevenly distributed around the hooks. The rivits dig into ankle- leg

Rated5out of5byIsaacTOwenfromCan handle it all and then someSo I've had these boots for close to five years now and I feel I owe it to them to write a review. Simply put, the best pair of footwear I have ever owned. I've taken these things everywhere up and down the west coast and they haven't failed me yet. Cascades, Olympics, Yosemite, Alaska, these boots have taken them all on with flying colors. Again, I've had them for nearly five years and have put them through the ringer and they still could almost pass as new. I will absolutely be purchasing another pair before too long.

Rated5out of5byGary JoãofromBest Hiking Boot I've Ever PurchasedThis hiking boot was by far the best hiking boot I have ever bought in all categories. It is definitely more for backpacking, especially if you have a larger pack like something 70L and above. However I have used it on trails without a pack and I was not brought down by the stiffness or massiveness of the boot at all really, because it is so naturally comfortable and one of the lightest of its kind. It won't beat a day hiking boot if that's what you do in terms of dexterity, lightweight, and comfortability. It would definitely be overkill, but if you're thinking you'd rather be more secure in your ankle support and durability and want to use your boot for several purposes I would recommend at least giving this boot a try. For an experience-based review, I hiked about 10 miles non-stop with this boot for its first test-run and it felt like it was already broken in and I got no blisters or pain anywhere afterward!
My ONLY quarrel, which does suck unfortunately is that the boot is definitely marked up in price for retail. However if you'r willing to just say screw it and get yourself a $200+ boot, then get this one.

Rated5out of5byREVIEW_NUMBER_FIELD_PREFIX5424fromBest Boots I've Ever OwnedI have had these for a little over a year and have put them through their paces. The average load I carry is between 45-80 lbs and at times I have moved upwards of 30 miles a day in them with no problems. Watching others with so called "mountain" boots around me have one problem after another in some very demanding terrain and me with the best boots I have ever owned. Asolo made me a customer for life with these boots. As far as their durability, after everything I have put them through I still use them on a regular basis around town and get compliments on them. Way to go Asolo!
