    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.

    by fromSmall but strong Great product. Strong and stirdy. Hardcore matt but it was smaller then I expected. Does a great job.

    by fromdoes its job Used this pad for about a year now and still works as well as the day I got it! Nothing out of the ordinary here, no bells and whistles. But, it catches you when you ditch, like it's supposed to. Would have been nice to have a zippered pocket on it somewhere for keys/phone/card/what-have-you.

    by fromMad Pad, Mad Fun The Mad Pad is a great purchase for anyone who wants to boulder outside. It is super light weight and doesn't hinder me at all on steep or rocky approaches and the waist and chest straps help a lot to hold it in place on my back. Once set up it is super easy to maneuver and conforms fairly well to most terrain to provide a nice cushy fall. The padding is great and I have never felt the ground on any of my falls. It is also great for a quick afternoon nap in between sessions! The only problem I found was that on narrow trails the wide load makes maneuvering around things a bit difficult but unless you get a roll up pad, I think this is unavoidable. That being said, even though it did snag on some trees and branches, the fabric was completely unperturbed and the pad stayed totally intact. Great buy!

    by fromNice landing I took this pad on my families spring break trip to Moab. The pad worked great as my wife, kids and I took falls on it over and over again. My kids also slept on it, though 2 would have made a better bed. It is a little on the bulky side, but was nice to fall on.

    by fromMental reassurance I've taken this pad out a few times and I'm really happy with it. It is bulkier than some pads but definitely not the bulkiest I've seen out there. The thickness of this pad really gives me the extra mental confidence I need outdoors. Ultimately, for me, that is the most important thing as a beginner and someone who wants to keep from getting injured so I can keep improving my skills.

    by fromA solid pad One of the cheapest crash pads on the market and it gets the job done. Not many special features, but how many do you need with a crash pad? The foam is firm and holds up well.

    by fromMust have for any safe climber! This is a great pad for any climber, particularly bouldering. A little on the smaller side but you can rig several pads together with the velcro attached to the sides. These things also double as a couch! Great if you have storage problems. Easy to carry around as well since it has shoulder straps attached.

    by fromSome like it thick My friend and I bought this as our first crash pad and took it to the Buttermilks and it did great. We came home with no sprains or cracked domes. It's a really thick pad which is good for the falls and it's still firm so you're not gonna roll your ankle on it. But since it's so thick it is kinda bulky but what pad isn't? The price is right and the protection is there, what more could you ask for?
