    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.

    Rated2out of5byfromWorked well, but didn't lastThis machete is a great concept. It is a perfect size for backpacking and having a blade & saw in one device saves weight and space. I used the machete on an overnight backpacking trip. It was wonderful about 30 minutes. Then when chopping a 2" diameter branch, the cutting edge of the blade broke off in large pieces. I plan to return to REI...not sure if I will try this product again or search for an alternative.

    Rated5out of5byfromSurprizingly efficientI wanted a tool that would perform jobs in an overlapping set of circumstances, and this was it. This little tool Wowed me from the "Git Go"! Here are my needs. A camping and hiking Knife/saw combo that was light and durable, and up to the job. I also wanted something to help me with the trees and bushes around my place. THe later turned out to be its first job. A fallen tree with an eight inch diameter base and branches in all the dimensions below that. So I went to town on branch and tree removal with only this small tool. WoW! No problem cutting here. Although I have cut 98 inch diameter trees with my TSA approved two inch long buck blade. This puppy helps get the job done quicker. I have a full size, old, stainless steel machete of slightly better steel quality. AND I am very experienced in the use of this tool for land clearing. Honestly, I was not expecting a glowing performance from the lighter, shorter blade. My mind was quickly changed when I followed through on the first several "hacks" I took at some fairly large branches. This is a well balanced item with a comfortable grip, and a handle cord that assists the grip. The sawing feature was extremely helpful in larger diameter branches (3+ inches). In a survival situations combining hacking and sawing actions will give your arm a break. Easy to get to sheath with Velcro strap and a belt loop holder (my preferred way to carry this item. If you ride Horses, the longer Machete may be too unwieldy. If you gotta carry one, this weighs less. Self protection? You bet. Bottom line, GET ONE. Highly recommended tool, for a bunch of uses. (and Chicks dig it ;)

    Rated5out of5byfromQuality ToolGood size and weight without being too unwieldy. Not going to carry it into the backcountry but excellent for use around the homestead. Takes an edge and holds it fairly well. Handles moderate chopping tasks (use common sense) without sustaining noticeable damage. Saw actually works great! Absolutely worth the price. Every young man (or young lady) with an interest in cutlery should have one.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat toolThis is a great little machete. It came sharp out of the box and has a good weight to it. The grip on it feels nice and tacky and the included sheath has a loop to strap it to your pack/belt etc. I've used it to strip ~1 inch thick branches off of limbs for firewood and it cut right through them with little effort. The saw part of the blade is a little cumbersome to get the cut started but sheared through wood pretty well once it was.

    Rated5out of5byfromPerfect Go Bag AttachmentIts attached to my Go Bag that stays in my Jeep. No matter where I am I can survive with what is in that bag, and you never know what you might need. This attachment comes in really handy.
