    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 Rugged Leather Belt is rated 4.0909 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged Belt is Rugged This rugged belt is really rugged. It ruggedly slips through my belt loops and holds my equally rugged pants up more ruggedly than any belt in the entire history of pants and belts worn as a combination.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Concerning proper sizing A quick guide to sizing belts: Almost universally, men's belts are measured from buckle to end, along the whole of its length. A proper belt, when notched, typically aligns with the third hole on the belt. To complicate issues, pant size and exact waist size are not often exact correlates due to the introduction of vanity sizing. The general practice is to order roughly two inches longer than your actual waist size. Leather belts will also be expected to stretch if placed under extreme pressure - if you like your belts tight or wear your pants reasonably low on your hips (when compared to traditional waist-wearing for slacks), think about sizing up an inch to account for this.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from NOT true to size Apparently there are some manufacturing or labeling issues with this belt. I ordered my pants waist size according to the description of the product and due to the "most helpful review." Ha! It was way too small. The belt just barely goes around my waist tip to tip. As for the belt itself, it seems fairly light, so durability may be an issue. I like that it's pretty plain and unbotrusive. I'll probably buy it again if they have it at the store for me to try on, but they didn't last I checked. That's why this one was ordered from the website.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great construction but too short Great construction but runs small as other reviewers have mentioned. I'm 5' 10", 145 lbs and ordered a 32" waist and have to use the very last hole right by the tip. If you're my size, get a 34-incher. I love that it is made in the USA.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rugged and Heavy This belt may last a lifetime. If you are looking for a rugged belt, this is an excellent choice. It is approx 1.25" wide so be sure it will fit into your belt loops. I am keeping this, but I find that it is a little informal and large to fit into my "casual Friday" wardrobe. Perfect for jeans and certain khakis, though.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does it's job but the leather stretches When I first purchased this belt I used the middle hole with a perfect fit. After a couple weeks of use the leather stretched out and I ended up having to use an awl to punch another hole in the leather so that it fit. It does it's job of keeping your trousers up and holds my knife right on my hip.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from a tad short Like the heavier leather, and buckle. Length is a bit short, guess I'll have to lose some weight. Order a few inches longer than your size.
