    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.

    Black Diamond Couloir Mountaineering Harnessis rated4.8333out of5by6.
    Rated5out of5byfromgreatI use this harness as part of my ski lift rescue equipment. It fit will in my bag and it easy to put on over all my gear. If I have to I can put the harness on while siting in the chair and perform a self resuce. I recommend this harness to any alpine skier in need of a harness.

    Rated5out of5byfromLight and aptThis was recommended by an REI employee in Fort Collins, CO and I did get to use it on a climb in RMNP. It was light and is durable. Helps especially when you are snow climbing, alpine style. You just need to support your weight in case you slip and will withstand reasonably well. Remember its not for rock climbing as this product is very light and will not handle your weight on suspension for longer duration. At least I would not risk it but an excellent product for its purpose.

    Rated4out of5byfromAwesome harness!I like this low profile harness I find it less obtrusive for quick climbs where I am not carrying a ton of gear. This harness is also perfect for quick rappelling that isn't necssarilly planned for. It takes about a minute to put on and feels super secure. An important note.. I am 6'4" 280 and am comfortable hanging in this harness. If BD made the leg loops look as secure as they feel this would be a 5 star review. Not a bad investment if you are going to use it.

    Rated5out of5byfromLightweight and greatThis is a perfect mountaineering harness for long days on extended trips. For women under 140 lbs I'd definitely recommend a Small even with heavy layers on.

    Rated5out of5byfromLight and comfortableLight and strong, very comfortable over layers and when walking. Can be adjusted through the legs and waist depending on how many layers you have on. Packs down into the included stuff sack and is about the size of a baseball when in the pack.

    Rated5out of5byfromMy most-used harnessThis thing is awesome! It's designed for alpine use and at that it excels - it's super light, packs down to the size of a soda can, the dropabble leg loops go on over crampons, and it's so thin and flexible you'll forget you're wearing it - but I also end up using it for indoor top-ropeing on the way home from work. I've got a stiff padded rock-climbing harness but that doesn't fit in my bag so well as this. Downsides: - only two gear loops, both in the front - the buckle is the old-school doublebacking sort
