    REI Members get back an estimated 10% 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.

    MSR MugMate Coffee/Tea Filteris rated4.5out of5by4.
    Rated4out of5byfromDay-to-day great!I use this filter every day to prepare myself a cup of loose tea at the office. I would like there to be an option, or way to connect the lid/base to the filter. I lost mine, and cannot find a suitable replacement.

    Rated4out of5byfromCoffee hero gearThe filter enabled my wife and me to be coffee heroes to our friends on a trip to Tibet. Hot water was generally available, even on the Tibet Railway, but the quality of local coffee was spotty at best. Combining the filter with a bag of ground coffee and some REI travel mugs allowed us to produce excellent coffee throughout the trip.

    Rated5out of5byfromPretty greatAs I like to brew my own tea, I have been primarily brewing my own tea at work. Those little tea balls leak leaves and pop open at the worst times. This filter works incredibly well with only the finest grounds sifting through. The 'cap' which can seem useless is excellent for setting the filter in to dry without leaving rings on your desk or getting dirt in the filter if you are out in the field. You can stick a little bag of loose tea in it (or just pour some in) and rubberband it closed and stick it in your bag or pack for later. Its light, been banging around loose in my bag and pack for several months now and seems pretty sturdy(I wouldn't want to put a lot of weight on it) and has served me well over a hundred cups of tea. Solid product and worth the asking price. Making my other tea strainers obsolete.
