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 of5bySCUBA LadyfromGreat Hat for all occasionsI have had one of these hats for 5 or 6 years. I use it regularly around the neighborhood but where it really shines is when I travel the world to SCUBA dive. It holds its shape, washes like a dream, folds flat in my luggage, drys fast. I use it as a sun hat, wind hat, umbrella and even when I feel a little chill. I have even snorkeled with it on my head when in an equatorial area with very strong sun. Strong wind can force the flap down over my eyes, but mostly it stays out to prtect my face. When I get home from a long trip I just throw it in the washer and lay it flat to dry. Comes out great. Highly recommended.

Rated5out of5byPlodfromIncredible hat - abuse it; wash it; like newI use this as my everyday hat; initially for fly fishing, backpacking & traveling. But, I am a cow veterinarian, so once the newness wore off; it also became my everyday work hat. Often lots of manure and sweat covering the hat so when it's time to head off on a leisure trip, I throw it into the washing machine and then air dry it; comes out looking brand new! Great chin strap, typically I don't use it and just fold it into the top of the hat but on a windy pass it keeps the hat firmly on your head. Great hat in heat or rain. I work in the Central Valley of CA. with summer temperatures often over 100 degrees, the hat has an excellent built in sweat band and is much cooler than most straw hats. Worth every penny.

Rated5out of5bykelleyj52fromI would buy this product again and againI generally use this hat when out in the sun. I recently took in to Aruba and it kept the sun off my face, neck and head. Worked better that expected.The hat is soft, comfortable to wear and does a great job blocking the suns rays.

Rated5out of5bychesterdawgfromI love this hat!I keep one of these in my motorcycle saddlebag and wear it when I stop. It sits flat in the bike then holds it shape on my head. It's lightweight, comfortable and breathes well.

Rated4out of5byPete314fromA quality productI sail, and hats with floppy brims just obscure vision or provide no protection in strong winds. This hat has a more substantial brim and handles wind well. The double strap arrangement keeps the hat on my head. At this price, i do not want to lose it overboard. The hat isn't waterproof, but that isn't why I bought it.

Rated5out of5byPho-tronfromCool and stylishThis hat works great for sun protection whle hiking and general outdoor activities. Looks nice too! Mesh provdies good air flow. Its OK for short periods of light rain, but not designed for much more than that.

Rated5out of5byAdvaitaJfromFunctionally SuperbI bought this hat to keep the sun off and also to provide distance-off for mosquito netting. It's an excellent hat, superbly crafted. If you're waiting for the downside, a picture taken of me in the hat showed that I looked just like my grandfather while wearing it. Definitely a case of function wining over fashion as I will continue to wear it -- whenever I'm out in the boonies.

Rated5out of5byAnn the travellerfromGreat product as advertised!This hat was recommended by friends who had them. I liked the way their hats looked on me and I usually don't look good in hats with brims all around. I like the fact the hat comes in specific sizes (I have a big head and got a size 7 5/8. It is made well and is washable and has a life-time guarantee. The air vent is great making my head cooler. I did notice the front of the hat tends to squish my bangs and make them sweaty since it sits lower on my face than most hats, so I either brush my bangs up inside the hat or switch off once in while to one of my baseball hats which do not flatten my bangs but which provide less sun protection.
