    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.

    Rated5out of5byfromWork FineI used the TX Direct Wash separately on old and new Gore-Tex and REI Elements garments followed by the wash in restorer on the Gore-Tex product. Each worked as advertised. The Gore-Tex Jacket is 20 years old but now the surface beads up water again.

    Rated5out of5byfromDoes what it's supposed to do....I purchased this item to refresh the waterproofing on a shell jacket and a recently purchased hybrid synthetic down jacket. This product worked perfectly and as advertised. I did have to wash the shell jacket twice in the DWR treatment in order to get the level of waterproofing that I desired. To be fair, the jacket had not been washed for some time so with frequent washes I'm sure that a single wash would be sufficient. After the wash I was able to field test the shell and synthetic down jackets in the rain and snow with no issues to report. This is a great product and I would recommend it to others. I will also try ReviveX in the future as a point of comparison.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat stuff!!I used this cleaner to clean my Motorcycle riding suit that was very dirty. And it did a great job. I had noticed when I used it the last time my suit repelled water very well.

    Rated4out of5byfromWorks wellProduct was easy to use, assuming that you have a decent washer and dryer. I don't know what the environmental impact is from discharging the waste material to the wastewater treatment system or receiving waters. I applied it to rain jacket and rain pants, and shortly after experienced 4 days of rain on the Wonderland Trail around Mt Rainier, without and penetration of moisture.

    Rated4out of5byfromWorked well.The stuff worked. I'm not fully convinced that you have to use their cleaner, but I did it any way just to be safe. Not worth ruining expensive gear. I've used my clothing several times since I washed it in NikWax and it definitely repels the water.
