    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.

    Rated5out of5byfromBest out thereI have owned two. One that I lost after four years and immediately bought another. It holds a great edge. Has the right tools, and is invaluable in the field and at home. Everyone should own one.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat multitoolI like this model of Leatherman because it is a good compromise with having almost every tool you need without being too large and heavy. Be careful not to lose the very small screwdriver bit.

    Rated4out of5byfromWave- LeathermanThis is a very good knife with a lot of different uses. I recently took it with me on a 10 day trip to the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. The only knock on it is the blade got pretty bad rust spots while there. I had cleaned it daily and used gun oil as a protectant, but it still didn't prevent oxidation. May not be the best knife if you plan on using it in a rainforest or marine environment. Otherwise, it's a very good all-around multi-tool

    Rated5out of5byfromThe most unappreciated giftAbout 12 years ago my parents got this for me on a trip to the Denver REI. At the time, I'd never heard of REI, nor did I fully care why they got me a Leatherman. However, it has turned out to be one of the most useful gifts I have ever received. It's functionality is remarkable. I've held many different positions in the last 12 years and there hasn't been one where my Wave didn't prove useful. I've used it as for computer repair, home repair, overt and covert security camera installation, auto repair, bike repair, and many others. I take it with me on every hiking and backpacking trip I take. I keep it handy at home to take care of quick repairs, too. It's extremely durable; I've never broken anything on it. The only downfall I've found is that it is a pain to clean.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Variety of Useful ToolsI've had a variety of multitools, but this takes the cake. I honestly haven't used the full range of tools on my new Wave yet, but I just got back from a month out in Emigrant Wilderness very impressed. I mainly used the Wave for it's thin, extra sharp knife for gutting and cleaning fish. It was really, quite easy to clean, just a shake in the lake and leave it completely open to dry. I had a beater knife though, so as far as putting the Wave to the test, it really had an easy time. The pliers are very handy, scissors are remarkable, (compared to the horrible ones on other multitools), the knives are very sharp out of the box and easy to sharpen, and I rarely used most of the other tools. My friend DID break my small flat head insert trying to unlock his door, but... that's the only ware it really had and REI exchanged it no problem. Leatherman is the way to go. I put off buying one cause I couldn't "afford" it, (I'm cheap), but now I'm glad I did, as it's much better quality than the other brands I've always used.
