    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.

    Outdoor Research Transit Sun Hatis rated4.5out of5by8.
    Rated5out of5byfromGreat tropical beach hatI'm sun adverse, after a life of construction work and surfing. I spend many hours on the beach as a surf photographer and this hat is the best for harsh beach conditions, even here in Puerto Rico. Used this hat for several years, and other than the exposed fabric color fading a bit, it's very breathable, protective and well-made. I'll be buying another!

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Sun HatI bought an Outdoor Research Transit Sun Hat about 5 years ago from another vendor and am glad to see that REI now offers it. The hat has great ventilation, but since it is closed at the front it still protects my bald forehead from the sun, which is not the case with other hats I've tried where the mesh goes all the way around the crown. I volunteer at a mountain park and have worn this hat two or three times a week for the last 5 years while hiking the trail in all kinds of weather and it's just now starting to show some wear. I wash it regularly by throwing it in with a load of laundry and hanging to dry and it hasn't shrunk. This is a quality practical sun hat and you won't be disappointed if you buy one.
