    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.

    Snow Peak LiteMax Stove is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Stove! This is such a terrific canister stove that I don't understand why anyone would buy any other "small" canister stove (GigaPower, Pocket Rocket, etc). The stove is lighter than these other canister stoves, and folds down to almost nothing. It can be stored under your canister filling some of that otherwise dead space created by the concave surface under the canister. I also own a Pocket Rocket, but found I quickly disliked it for its instability. I can't explain why, but this stove feels more stable. When deployed, its basically the same height and width of the Pocket Rocket. The only difference I can see in that the arms on the LiteMax are flat, while the arms of the PocketRocket are angled. That means the pot sits on three small points on the PocketRocket. That brings up one other small detail (that won't matter to most). The PocketRocket can not be easily used by a pot or cup that is smaller than the 4" diameter of the arms because of the points/slope. The LiteMax arms go all the way to the burner allowing the use of small cups.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this stove I bought this product in 2010 and have used it on 5 peaks over 22000 feet in the Andes at temperatures down to -20, together with many over 13000 feet. It has just failed and I'm buying another. If the gas is kept warm (sleeping bag) it always lights, it melts ice to a boil quickly and generally works the way it should. With the right sized pot it's stable, with a large pot not exactly. A loose windshield would be nice, but I admit to going solo and cooking inside the tent (which you're not supposed to -ever- as it can be dangerous, like, tent fire).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite canister stove I travel fast and light. I use this mostly for FBC and coffee. In my heat exchange pot I consistently get sub 2:00 boils with this stove. I also have a MSR Microrocket, and a Olicamp Kinetic Ultra / Montauk Gnat. I much prefer the Snow Peak for it's flame pattern, pot supports, and output. From now on, if I'm not using Esbit or alcohol, I'll be using the Litemax!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect canister stove What a gem! If you're looking for a canister stove, this is the way to go: light, compact, easy, and easy on the eyes. This tiny little stove has good temperature control for a canister. I can't vouch for its performance at high altitude, but so far, it's held up in the wind and the cold on multiple short backpacking loops and road trips. Don't forget to puncture those leftover canisters and recycle!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, Leightweight, reliable Used this on a few short backpacking trips so far and plan on taking it on the JMT in August. A lot lighter than my last set up (MSR Whisperlite Intl) and much better temp control. You might want to improvise a windscreen for it if you will be somewhere with any wind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra Lite to the Max! I purchased this stove to use with my 400mL Evernew Ti cup to use while section hiking the AZ Trail, I consider this a SUL setup for use under restrictions by the forest service, It performed like a champ, easy lighting, I personally don't want the added weight of a built in igniter. you will need to stir often while simmering, best use for boiling water or bring foods to boil then shut off and let them hydrate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little stove That's an awesome stove. Very stable for how tiny it is and extremely light. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed...
