    REI Members get back an estimated $ 8.00 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.

    Counter Assault Bear Keg is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps your food safe from raiders I was debating long and hard between the CA and BV bear cans. In the end I chose the CA one and am pretty happy with it. It is a little heavier/bulkier than some models but it is not that big of a deal. One reviewer mentioned it is not waterproof, well all the bear cans I have researched are not waterproof. The BV might be a little more than others but if it falls in a stream or puddle water will still get inside. But waterproofing is not the major concern of bear cans, bear proofing is. So if water gets into your bear can and ruins something of yours that is on you because anything you don't want getting wet should be in plastic bags. Another complaint I have seen is the opening is too small, I checked both the CA and BV models out in the store and checked the opening size and both are almost exactly the same (I mean we are talking mm differences). This is a good choice for groups, it is a little bigger for solo trips but with some smart packing you can make it work.
