    REI Members get back an estimated $ 2.45 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.

    REI Trail Chairis rated4.1667out of5by6.
    Rated5out of5byfromAmazing product!We bought these for the purpose of going to our girls volleyball tournaments. Folding chairs are not allowed in the gymnasiums so these worked out great. Super comfortable for hours.

    Rated5out of5byfromThe Do Everything ChairWell worth the weight. It is more comfortable than the other trail chairs I tried. It's a chair, a sit-pad in cold weather, a sleeping pad in an emergency, a leg splint if things go sour . . . Plenty of uses and worth the ounces when the hiking is done for the day.

    Rated1out of5byfromChair returned after 3 hours useYears ago I purchased a travel chair from REI. I wanted a second chair just like it. The new REI brand chair failed after 3 hours use. The supports broke through the fabric at the top edges. It is also much narrower than my original chair. It's just not made to last. I returned the chair.

    Rated5out of5byfromLight and functionalEasy to sit in. Can be used as a comfortable chair with a back, or as a flat pad (if you don't open it up). I took it on a canoe/camping trip to the BWCA and stuck it in the back of my Duluthpack-style backpack -- it provided a nice, flat, comfortable support for carrying the pack. Light enough to be worth packing in to the wilderness (where your only alternative place to sit is the ground).

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat for car camping and some day-hikesBit bulky to stash in most day packs but if you have one that wil fit its awesome to take on day hikes and sit on during water/lunch breaks. Also a great option for the beach.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat chair for backpackingThis chair is great! It's basically a cheaper version of the Crazy Creek chair. I bring it on every single backpacking trip. It's easy to strap on to my pack and not heavy enough to seriously impact my load (I'm also not an ultralight backpacker - I like to be comfy, unlike those guys). It also works as a sleeping pad, if you're into multipurpose stuff or run into a problem with an inflatable pad. This happened to me - my Thermarest popped on day 4 of a 21 day backpacking trip and while I cursed myself for not bringing a repair kit, it wasn't a huge deal because I just unhooked the buckles on the chair and slept on it. Not as comfy as an air pad, for sure, but definitely a lot comfier than the ground.
