    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.

    • Includes windscreen and heat reflector for increased operating performance; also includes a durable, lightweight MSR fuel pump
    • Windscreen is designed to accommodate cookware up to 10 in. in diameter

    MSR WhisperLite Shaker Jet Backpacking Stoveis rated4.375out of5by8.
    Rated5out of5byfromOle ReliableI bought this for my oldest son for his 13th birthday. I have had mine since I was 16 (mine is pre-shaker jet). Mine has served me well on numerous trips (Scouts, Military) and it still works. I did have to replace the pump a few years ago due to mine being so old that replacement parts were no longer available. Great stove and I know it will serve my son well.

    Rated5out of5byfromGood stoveBeen using this stove for years and it has never failed me. Wish MSR would make a better pump though. Stove is indestructable, pump is a bit more fragile.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Stove!Great stove! Not as small as the pocket rocket, but I enjoy knowing how much fuel is in my bottle (and being able to bring the amount I want).

    Rated5out of5byfromWhisperLite is the right name!MSR has become one of the leaders,if not the leader,in the portable stove industry.The WhisperLite Shaker is one of their many stoves that literally can clean itself of silt and soot by a simple shake.Good simmer,enough BTUs to bring 1L of water to boil in 3-1/2 minutes.Stable three legged stand that folds together and braided SS fuel hose tucks and hooks out of the way.

    Rated5out of5byfromOnly stove I use!This is the best and only backpacking stove I use. Although it is slightly larger when packed up than the pocket rocket, I prefer the whisperlight's much more stable base and the fuel bottles fit in more places than the onetime use fuel canisters.

    Rated4out of5byfromGood StoveWe use this stove when we kayak camp in the 10,000 islands...sturdy/stable for cooking

    Rated1out of5byfromNot Worth It!The stove does heat food as advertised but for the money there are much better products. Due to the canister on the side and metal hose the stove is very unstable. I had this stove out for about 5 trips ranging in temperatures from the low teens or less to the 60's. The stove was difficult to light and almost didnt work in the low teens. The stove must be cleaned and is a real PITA to take care of and attempt to get back together. It is a High Maintenance piece of gear. Better bets would be an Esbit Stove for $10. It is more stable, easier to clean and the fuel doesnt weight as much. Plus you can use the tabs to start a fire in an emergency or very wet day and you save a bunch of money!

    Rated5out of5byfromreliable year after yearMy husband owned this stove before we met, over 12 years ago. We have used it on many backpacking and canoe trips and it's never failed us. Now we have two kids and we don't get out backpacking much, so the stove sat in our closet for 4+ years. Last weekend we got it out again for a car camping trip. It worked perfectly, even after that long of a "vacation" in our closet! I am so impressed with how reliable this stove is. Also, pretty fuel efficient, so we never had to carry nearly as much gas as many of the fuel calculators recommended.
