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 of5byDarcyLizardfromwonderful for a shorthair on cold nightsI never thought I'd be buying my dog a jacket! My husband and I went on a cross-country road trip last spring, and our Floridian dog was not enjoying some of the cooler nights in the mountains. After we bought this jacket, she stayed nice and warm wherever we stayed. We bought a large for our 80ish lb dog, and while the torso fit is great the arm holes seem a bit saggy. Still, no chafing and she only walks a little bit weird until she gets used to it! This is perfect for cold weather walks and cold camping conditions, especially if you have a dog that doesn't like sleeping under blankets!

Rated5out of5byCaitBearfromFor the dog who has everything...I was skeptical spending as much on a fleece for my dog as I can spend on one for myself. But Rogue, our 36 lbs Border Collie from South Carolina was getting chilly in the PACNW winters and with winter hikes/campouts coming up, I didn't want her too cold. The fleece is easy to put on and does not restrict her movement at all. I was most impressed with how breathable it was. Out on a cold day, she wore this and a pack. She was never sweaty or wet under the pack. She seemed comfortable. Great product!

Rated5out of5byPowerPenguinfromVery insinuative for shorthaired PointerThis jacket is very lightweight, but is the only thing that keeps my Lab/Pointer mix warm in very cold weather. It's easy to clean (I used some Nikwax spray to make it water/stain resistant). The only downside is that it's sometimes hard to get the zipper started. My dog has a unique upper body build, so it may not be an issue w/ other breeds. Overall, worthwhile!

Rated5out of5byDogMomfromgreat dog sweater!This is the perfect layer for an older dog (13) with short hair - he gets cold in winter, shivering even inside the house. This fleece sweater is perfect and fits him perfectly. He doesn't seem to know he's wearing it. Easy to put on over front legs and good quality zipper that doesn't stick or catch.

Rated4out of5byREI customer MAfromShort on the back endMy 13-yr.-old dog is 85 lbs., lean and long, and arthritic. This coat goes on easily when she's standing or lying down, and stays put until I take it off. Even though she's skinny and old, one Ruff Wear coat is usually enough in the New England cold. (When it's frigid, you can put the Quinzee Down coat over the Climate Changer or the Cloud Chaser.)
It also washes easily. I have to dry it in the dryer (the directions say not to) or the dog hair won't come off, but I haven't had a problem doing this.
My dog already has a Cloud Chaser in size large that fits her to a tee. The Climate Changer is also size large, but too short. It is fitted in the rear, but does not cover her bum to keep it warm.
I expected the same size coat from the same manufacturer to fit the same way. That's my only gripe. Other than that, I've been very happy with Ruff Wear dog coats.

Rated5out of5byKaty CfromFits like a glove!I have a an all white pit bull, she has very little fur. The fur she does have is thin and mostly on her back. From the chin all the way down to her tummy is bald, tiny bit of peach fuzz. She shivers on cool days and on cold windy day I have to force her outside. She is medium in size, about 60 lbs. I tried many coats and sweaters before I found this, most other brands don't cover her chest or are designed for much smaller breads. I swear this is custom made for my dog. It fits perfect around the neck, chest and tummy. The back covers to her tail just like it should. She loves to wear it too, when I take it off her, she wants it back on!

Rated5out of5byRebeccaMcGruefromGreat PurchaseI have two boxers and I have to keep them outside. I bought these for the cold nights right now. They love them. They don't give me any problems when putting them on, nor do they try to bite them off. They look really cute and snuggley in them.

Rated5out of5bySusan Dunsmorefromperfect coatI bought this dog coat because my boyfriend is allergic to my dog and I'm not ready to get rid of him or the dog. Figured the coat will help keep the hair and dander off the carpet and out of the air when we're at his house. The coat definitely traps the dog hair, which I shake out daily. Other reviews say it washes well so once every few weeks I will toss it in the washer.
