    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.

    STABILicers Lite Traction Devices is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work great on ice These are great for walking on steeper icy roads or roads mixed with snow and ice. It is important to get the correct size so they don't peel off. They should be fairly difficult to put on for the right size. I keep one pair on boots by my front door and a loose pair in my car for unexpected icy situations. These are better than the grippers with coiled wire.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unsatisfactory - fall off We were sledding on ice crusted snow. My son had a pair made by a different manufactured. I choose the brand most like my son's at REI. The main difference is his came with a Velcrow over-the-top of foot strap. The pair I purchased has no Velcrow strap. They come off after just a few steps when walking up hill.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use - grips well I bought these after slipping on the ice walking around town multiple times. They are great for pulling on when the sidewalks are icy and work on all of my casual shoes. They are easy to pull off when I get to my destination, so I don't scratch up floors. I would not recommend them for serious hiking - the rubber is stretchy and seems like it wouldn't hold up well for walking up steep slopes. I also would not recommend for running as they are a bit bulky underfoot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Now I Can Walk All Winter! I use my STABILicers (studded snow tires) for five mile walks around town. Some of the sidewalks get very icy and stay that way most of the winter. I used to give up and wait until spring. Now I don't have to. I am looking forward to our next blizzard (tomorrow) so I can try these things out on something more challenging. My only problem is weak arthritic hands that have trouble pulling the rubber over my clodhopper clown feet. Also, my feet are so wide (I don't need snowshoes) that they feel like I'm slopping over on the sides, but that doesn't really bother me much. I can walk five miles in the usual time and with the usual amount of energy. I love them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value I bought these for my family of 4 for our trip to Zion and Grand Canyon Nat'l parks. They were excellent! We hiked by tons of people sliding off the trails. They were light weight and easy to put on and take off when the trails were clear of ice.They allowed us to hike all over the snow and ice covered trails. I plan to use them at home for winter walks in the city.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't stay on foot. I like how light these are and how easy they are to get on and off. They are great to add extra traction/grip on icy routes; especially when gaining elevation. I have found, however, that they fall off your feet easily - I found that while both using my own and a friend's. Unless you want to use a shoe lace or some sort of string to tie them on to your shoes over the top of your foot I would not recommend buying them because they will likely get lost, potentially on your first use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe and Reliable I love my Stabilicers! I enjoy winter running, and love the feeling of surviving the elements with the right gear. I was originally going to buy the Yak Trax, and a helpful lady at REI said those get returned all the time because the straps break. She recommended the Stabilicers Lite. I am so grateful to her, because I love them. I've been using them for two winters and they work great. Only cautions is that if you have to run for a short distance on bare road, they can be uncomfortable. So I try to stay on the snow and ice when wearing them. Also I am picky about the positioning - they have to be perfectly centered under my shoe. Therefore I've learned just to get them right and then leave them on one pair of shoes all winter so I only have to adjust them once. And obviously don't wear them inside or they will scratch your floors. I really love these. They feel so safe and secure. I'm buying another pair for my husband so he can run on the ice with me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for icy streets Perfect for getting around on icy streets. Easy on and off for when you're going from inside to outside and back. Don't think I'd trust them to stay on in deep snow. A short bungee or velcro strap over the top of the foot should help secure them - but in deep snow they won't help much anyway. I wear a size 13 boot, but the only pair left on the rack were 13.5 and up. Maybe that's why they're so easy to put on and take off...
