    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 of5byfromNo wet butt :)I bought the REI Trail Stool last fall. Used in it on the AT in November and again this March. March produced very wet conditions, and I did not have wet butt. Off the ground and comfortable. It's no lounge chair, but it is not even comparable to using a decaying log or sitting wet moss or plopping down in dirt and mud. Strap it on the outside of your pack, and go. Very light to carry on 3-day to week-long trips; perfect for our section backpacking on the AT.

    Rated5out of5byfromYep.Dude. This thing is the bomb. It looks kind of silly and I was inclined to think I would never possibly need it, but after twenty miles with a thirty pound pack I was glad to have it with me. It costs nothing, fits in the pole holders of my Kelty Coyote perfectly, can be used to set my pack on without having to get it dirty, is super light, and I can sit in it to rest or while I cook. This is a very practical luxury.

    Rated4out of5byfromNice & LightWanted to have a a place to sit during day walks to keep weight off my broken foot bone when ever possible. Did not use much because it was awkward to carry with my day pack and cane. Also it did not fit in my carryon luggage, so had to improvise to even take it with me. I'll probably give it to my grandkids who camp.

    Rated5out of5byfromLIGHT AND COMFYVery lightweight and compact, easy to set up, very comfy. A good item to use when cooking at a campfire, or at an outdoor event with limited seating, or if you have to stand and wait in a long line somewhere.

    Rated4out of5byfromI like itSince my husband takes a lot of photography, the stool comes in handy for me to sit while waiting for him to finish picture taking. It is lightweight, which is what I was looking for. The only problem I have is when closing it, the straps don't stay together to keep the chair folded tight. I have only used it on one photo trip. Hopefully, the construction of the stool will hold up a long time.

    Rated4out of5byfromUp off the ground!Great for backpacking. No backrest, but no getting up off the ground either. I used it for a 7-day trip and was so glad I had it. The strap around the bottom is confusing - no one knows what purpose it serves so I will probably cut it off and just leave a small velcro loop for holding the stool closed when it's tied on my pack. It's also a nice place to set things you want to keep off the ground. I found this stool quite comfortable. I'm 5'6" and 125 pounds.

    Rated5out of5byfromAmazing for hikingI took this out hiking/camping with me last weekend. Small and light, attached easily to the outside of my pack. After the long hike, it was great to have a soft seat. Set it up in the creek and enjoyed the cold water without having to submerge all of myself. I brought it out of the creek, and it was wet. I held it over the fire to dry, about 3 ft from the fire, and it melted the netting that makes up the seat. I sat on it and the top layer ripped, but the bottom layer stayed intact. So far, it is still good to go, at my 165lbs weight. Great seat, just don't try to dry it with heat!!
