    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.

    Sawyer Complete Water Purifier System - 4 Literis rated5.0out of5by1.
    Rated5out of5byfromA little slow, but works wellSince this purifier membrane filters down to 0.02 microns (i.e., clears viruses), it is expected to be slower than those that screen out only bacteria. Before actual use, I found it essential to "prime" the purifier at home with (clean) water under a higher pressure faucet flow to get it to be filled with water first & get rid of air within the filter. Then I put it in a plastic bag & take the whole system out on my hiking trip & the filter works well. Also, the tubing from the unpurified water bag needs to be filled with (unpurified) water first before attaching it to the filter to get rid of air in the tubing that would slow the flow through the filter. The video on Sawyer's website explains that process well. It does take closer to 45mins-1 hour to filter 4 liters than the "15 mins" mentioned here, but that does depend on how clean your water source is & how high you can elevate the dirty water bag above the clean water bag. The purified water does somewhat have a plastic taste from the clean water bag, but I am sensitive to this, as I also get the same plastic taste when drinking from a Camelbak reservoir. But since the filter is used when in need of clean water, I can tolerate the taste, as I do when drinking from a Camelbak reservoir. I've had this for only a couple of months, so I don't know how true their "million gallon guarantee" is. Also, it looks like they are in the process of changing packaging, as the picture shows the drinking tube (to attach from the exit/clean side of the filter to a Camelbak-type bite valve instead of the clean water bag) to be non-insulated, while the one I got is insulated.
