    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.

    by fromNever get lost again Outstanding compass. Great for use anywhere on the globe. I use this with a map as well as navigating while hunting, fishing, and hiking. I prefer to use this than my GPS--many extras! I would say that this compass is not for the beginner-but if you are going to eventually upgrade--might as well spend the extra $$ upfront.

    by fromBest Baseplate Compass out there Just buy this compass and be done with it. Global needle is very accurate and can be used in both Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Adjustable declination is very nice to have. Bezel glows in the dark very well. With the global needle it is more forgiving when unable to keep compass level. Great job Suunto.

    by fromGreat Handheld Compass I use this compass for sea kayak and land navigation, and find it to be very reliable, accurate, sturdy and convenient. Learn how to use one. Don't leave home without it.

    by fromAwesome compass The M-3G is an awesome compass! The global needle is less sensitive to the base plate being tilted and it spins into location noticeably faster than other compasses, including the M-3DL, because of its double pivot. Hence it will stay more accurate when you are stressed and fumble around and need it to perform. The two white rubber pads are great at holding the compass to the map so they do not slip. The longer shape of the base plate makes it easier to set the compass over a longer distance on the map. This is a great benefit that overrides the insignificant extra weight relative to a shorter, more square model. The M-3G compass house does not have as many cluttering lines as the M-3DL, which makes the M-3G faster to read and set. Note that the M-3G will have "M-3G" printed on the base plate; the M-3DL will simply say "M-3" (i.e., the REI picture for the M-3G is that of a M-3DL).
