    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.

    • Leather provides natural "give" by stretching and flexing, and because it doesn't need padding, it's a cool option in warm weather
    • The saddle will age and break in over time
    • Bag loops permit the use of a traditional English-style touring bag on the rear of the seat

    Brooks England Flyer Saddle - Men's is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for long rides I ride a Specialized Sirrus Comp hybrid bike. I'm 5'10" and 160lbs, but replaced the good but uncomfortable factory seat a couple of times trying to find something that wouldn't leave me standing on my pedals after twenty miles or so. Finally, after much research, I discovered Brooks England. I took a chance with this considering the price, but took the plunge via REI because of the return policy (just in case). Not to worry, though; I love this seat! The springs are really stiff so you're not bouncing around; what they do is smooth out all the small vibrations from gravel, ruts and other minor imperfections on the rail trail. Went 77 miles in a combination of the Maryland/Pennsylvania trails and could have kept on going. Before this seat I would have been in agony. People complaining about the weight: lose a pound or two and you're right back in the game! If you're already fit, then it's just that much better of a work out. Can't beat a comfortable saddle to revolutionize your ride! One word of warning: since it's leather, they include a seat cover to use in the event of rain. It doesn't wrap completely underneath the seat, so if you actually get caught in water the wheels will spin it up underneath the seat. Hasn't happened to me yet because I'm a fair weather rider, but it's a real issue to address if it matters to you. Also, find their name brand Proofide conditioner online somewhere to treat the seat; it helps it to wear in and also protects the leather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Out of the Box Okay... It is expensive. I was a bit worried about the 'break in' period and my sit bones. The flyer was comfortable right out of the box and suits my more upright riding style. The springs take the sharpness out of road bumps and a little lubrication took the squeaks out of the springs. The saddle looks like it will be hot but it has been very comfortable at 80+ degrees. Bottom line... it is worth every penny.
