    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.

    Sea to Summit Folding Bucket - 20 Litersis rated4.25out of5by4.
    Rated4out of5byfromLooks Great - Haven't Used It YetI haven't used it yet. But the compact size and price make it great for transporting water. The lack of a lid make it unlikely I'd use it for potable water.

    Rated5out of5byfromA Life SaverThis + water bottle + steripen is all you need to keep the water going on your next camping trip. Packs down to almost nothing, holds a ton, and reasonably stable—the surface tension of the water keeps everything balanced on reasonably flat surfaces. Two families used it for a week of back-country camping and it took care of all of us with no muss, no fuss.

    Rated4out of5byfromVersatile--if you are carefulI like this bucket very much. For such light a package, you get a great deal on volume, convenience and stability. The bucket has a very convenient strap loop between the bottom and the side, so pouring over the lip is easy--you lift it with one hand by main handle and tilt by pulling the loop. The bucket is stable enough on a piece of flat ground. I filled it to 3/4 of capacity (15 liter) at most. It remains stable from this much water and down to any amount as you spend the water. However, you need to be careful when setting it down, and select a good flat spot for it. Also, there is no lid. This is not a problem if you keep 1/2 of the bucket, as then the top can be folded to the inside in two folds to cover the water surface. A full bucket, however, would stay open to anything that falls from up above, which is plentiful in the woods, from twigs and cones to insects and bird droppings. An additional cover flap would perhaps increase the weight by no more than 25%, but be very helpful if it were provided. Also, there are seams between the bottom and the side. Do not know about this particular bucket, but generally I found such seams prone to harboring fungal and microbial growth. I wash my water-handling gear with the diluted hydrogen peroxide solution (10 drops/0.5 ml of the USP 3% peroxide solution per quart of water) after each trip, and this bucket is not exempt from the oxidizer bath. You should research and implement your own disinfecting protocol, of course, and my point here is only to make you aware of the seams and their life-harboring potential.

    Rated4out of5byfromConvenient and worth carrying inUsed a branch to hang the bucket, and took the worry out of knocking the bucked over. Did eventually get bucket to stand alone, but took some doing. Handle was surprisingly sturdy, and easily able to handle the weight of the water. Definitely better to have water in camp site, than to keep having to run down to the river. Liked having bucket of water at hand with live fire.
