    REI Members get back an estimated $ 4.00 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.

    Mountain Hardwear Nut Shell High Gaitersis rated4.0out of5by3.
    Rated4out of5byfromHigh and dryTook these out backpacking and it snowed about a foot overnight. Hiking back out, my feet and legs stayed warm and snow-free. They're very easy to put on, even with gloved fingers, and will stay in place even after 5 miles of foot-deep snow. They're lightweight and seem pretty durable. The only downside is that they don't breathe. But that's like most water-proof gear that actually is water-proof; it keeps the cold water off, it doesn't necessarily keep you dry. Overall, a great product.

    Rated4out of5byfromKept the water out!The day after I bought these, I took a 20 mile hike that started at sea level and went to 4000'. The forest was wet at first, and turned to snow up above. At the summit, I was post-holing almost up to my knees. These gaiters were never a hinderence along the way - no overheating, no irritation, could hardly tell I had them on. On the return, I came to a creek without bridge. It was probably 15' across and nearly a foot deep. Deep breath... DASH! On reaching the other bank, I was *amazed* that no water had gotten into my boots! At the end of 20 extremely damp miles, my pant cuffs were also slighly damp. But boy do I ever believe these gaiters changed the outcome of that hike, avoiding the highly unpleasant prospect of coming out the last six miles with soaked footwear. They could be easier to put on, if they had a sewn-in strap and buckle like most. But I think it's a Positive thing that they can be held in place with a simple field-replacable shoestring!
