    REI Members get back an estimated $ 8.50 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.

    Backcountry Access Snow Study Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has essentials,doesn't fit aiare book This is a useful basic backcountry snow kit with some essential tools to aid in characterizing snow and your terrain. Both the kit cover and the tools seem to have durable construction. One con, whichi could easily be corrected by the manufacturer is that the kit is too small for a typical aiare or all-weather notebook.
