    REI Members get back an estimated $ 44.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent with a caveat OK, so Ive taken this out a couple of times now and loved it. This kayak performs as well as other users have described and was, simply put, a joy to cruise around in. That said, I have one recommendation, I bought this with the Advanced Elements Backbone Internal Kayak Frame - AdvancedFrame Single Kayak REI Item # 7527830017, because a friend had advised me that this would make a tremendous difference during use. They were right. I tried the kayak out both with and without the internal frame and with it the kayak performed perfectly, I was slightly slower than I am with a rigid kayak of similar size but I actually found maneuverability and seaworthiness equally good if not slightly better. Without the frame this kayak underperformed. I was not nearly as maneuverable and the kayak felt like it was folding slightly if I was hitting the (small) waves head on. This wobbly feeling was only there without the frame and, as such, I'd advise anyone purchasing this to get the frame or make your own before taking this out on the water.
