    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 fromShort on the back end My 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.

    by fromNice jacket, but cloud chaser is better This is a nice jacket, but the Ruffwear Cloud Chaser is far superior and I would suggest getting it if you are doing serious winter outings with your dog. If you just want something your dog can wear around the house, then this one will be fine. I find it a bit expensive for what you get in comparison to the cloud chaser.

    by fromSuper warm! My dog loves it! Love this fleece! It's a bit spendy but very well made. I bought this because my German shorthair shivered inside my house. Since receiving the fleece he hasn't shivered once! Easy to put on. I use it indoors, it wouldn't work outside for us because the belly is pretty long and my male dog would soak it in pee. We have a ruff wear outdoor coat that works great too! I love this company! Spendy but well worth it!!

    by fromperfect coat I 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.

    by fromgreat 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.

    by fromwonderful for a shorthair on cold nights I 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!

    by fromVery insinuative for shorthaired Pointer This 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!

    by fromFor 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!
