    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 Minimalist Bivy - Longis rated2.6667out of5by3.
    Rated2out of5byfromNot greatI have used this about 10 times in various conditions. The tent is incredibly small and fits in my sleeping bag's compression sack. I was very happy to have something this small, light and pack-able. It unzips wide enough to make it easy to get in and out of. I am a large framed person and fit inside nicely. It could use a little more room, but it's not necessary. Every time I have used it, I have woken up to a lot of moisture inside. I try to breathe out of the mesh, however, the inside is dripping water every morning. This wasn't a huge problem, as my bag is waterproof. The last night I used this, I encountered rain for the first time. I found quickly that the mesh is not waterproof. As the rain hits the mesh and your face, you feel every drop splash on you. I turned to the side, but still felt the rain coming it. Using my emergency tarp, I erected a barrier over the face and slept soundly. When I woke up the next morning, I had to drain water out of it. During the summer months, it holds a lot of heat inside. During winter, it retains heat fairly well. Bottom line, I think it's good for the price, but I will likely get something else.

    Rated4out of5byfromUltralight backapckingI love how small the pack size and light weight the bivy is. Great two part zipper for putting your arms through in camp. The mesh panel gave me lots air through the night. I use mine for summer ultralight backpacking. The reason for 4 stars is width could be a little wider.

    Rated2out of5byfromCondensation a problemI bought this for an eight day August backpacking trip to the high Sierras. I woke up every morning to moisture and sometimes ice inside. The sleeping bag was always wet from condensation. I had to let the sack and sleeping bag dry every morning which usually didn't take long in the low humidity. I was careful to breath through the mesh rather than inside the sack to minimize the condensation but that didn't help. It never rained on us so I don't know if the sack is waterproof. I live in Georgia and won't even try it here due to the high humidity. It does pack very small and light.
