    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.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat bag for travelingTwo things first, one I was not supposed to buy a bag during my trip to the east coast. But my airline messed up with my bag, when I got it back it was reaped open with some of my clothes sticking out. Second, I've been looking and fantasizing about this bag for a long time now (okay! okay! Fantasizing was too much.). YeahI did like it even before. So now I had the reason to buy. Bought it during my stop in Virginia. To my delight it was on sale. Hurrah!! No more questions. I bought it! It is a very sturdy bag and very versatile. I can take it to my long overseas trip or even just for camping here in California. It has a sling or can be used as a backpack. Moreover, I found it in bright colors. What's good about this? I can easily spot it from 100 yards away. No more ribbons or any ropes on my luggage just to make it pop out of the rest. When I don't use it, it folds perfectly and it does not occupy a lot of space.

    Rated4out of5byfromIt's what I call a throw bagI recieved this as a christmas gift, after dropping some hints. I have to admit I usually see something I like and then research it a bit and go back and check it out again before I'm convinved. Not so much in this case! The moment I saw this bag at the local REI I knew North Face got it right. The medium is the perfect everyday size. This is my new throw bag, you know the bag that seems to get everything thrown in it all the time, and is durable enough to be thrown in the bed of the truck and take on the elements and the beating. My only beef with this bag was the backpack straps. Before I even used the bag I fixed the buckles North Face chose. Cut them off and replaced them with some side-release buckles. A few dollars went a long way in making the straps not only more useful, but easily detached in seconds when not needed. Other than that, solid bag and I would consider a Large or X-Large in the future.

    Rated4out of5byfromOnly one gripe!I use this bag for two fairly disparate purposes: travel and BJJ class. For travel, this bag holds everything I am willing to let TSA agents *try* to steal (cable lock method has proven highly effective), and for BJJ, this holds my gis (2), rashguards, first-aid kit, large container of sanitary wipes, large towel, toiletries, and a change of clothes. Whether getting it to the airport or to the locker room, I really wish it had a shoulder strap. I don't like putting it on my back (which, although it has backpack straps, it truly wasn't designed for), which means I'm left carrying it in one hand, rather than slung across my body, thereby leaving two hands free for other uses. This would be a solid, 5-star bag if it just came with this one additional option. Build quality is solid and it's a sharp looking piece. Hope they update it!

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat bagGreat bag that packs a LOT of space in a small package. Medium size packed my wife and I for 2 week trip in central america. Super durable and very comfortable as a backpack. Zipper has loop for small lock which is very convenient when traveling on planes. Highly recommend it!

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat bagI really like this bag. I got the blue one and it's great because now all my stuff has a place to go when I go camping, rather than on the floor of my car. But I might bring back the medium one for a Large, since the medium is still pretty small, even though I pack light. I'd say the medium is more just a gym bag for one spare change of clothes and like a towel.

    Rated5out of5byfromGood ChoiceI use this bag and a large Northface to store camping gear so I can just throw them in my jeep and take off. They seem to be very durable but are hard to zip probably because the zippers are water resistant. I am very satisfied with the quality and I like REI's satisfaction guarantee.
