    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything an adult pack has I am a small (but hot) woman, so childrens gear often fits me better than adult gear. This pack is perfect for pretty much everything--hiking, biking, prancing around town. It has lots of pockets which is a must for me, and it has all the amenities an adult pack has. The material on the shoulder straps can be a little harsh against bare skin at times but overall a great pack. Enjoy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kids pack I bought this pack for my 5 year old son. We tried it in the store to ensure it would fit him. The straps and waist fit just fit his small body at maximum adjustment. He loves the pack. I also puchased the 1.8L Platypus bladder to go with it. It is a great pack for him to carry his own water, his raingear, snacks and emergency gear. It is very stylish and will be a great daypack for him for hopefully 5 years!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish it was big enough for me! We bought two of these for our 8 and 6-year-old sons. We were throughly impressed with the quality of the bags, how much they hold and the bells and (literal) whistles they came with. My only wish is that I had one for myself!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good day pack, I bought this pack for my 7 year old in my attempt to get the whole family started backpacking. I have to admit, that I probably bought a pack too small to do much with for that purpose. It's a great day pack, my son absolutely loves it (especially the integrated whistle in the front). I like the fact that there are plenty of side pockets for him to put his stuff in. This bag won't hold a sleeping bag, but I think we've managed to make this a useable bag for him by switching out smaller items in our packs for his sleeping bag, etc. All in all.... so far, so good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This is the most perfect backpack for my grandson, age 5 years. He has uncles in the military and is facinated by their gear and tries to wear their packs whcih are very large and heavy. He noticed that none of his backpacks had the chest or waist clips like the military packs, so I went searching for one. This is the only quality youth backpack I could find with the clips. He uses it everyday for school, daytrips and shows it off to everyone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tarn 18 I bought this pack for my almost 9yr old son as a pack/bag to store and transport his climbing gear to the gym and the crag. The pack has plenty of room for his harness, helmet, shoes, snacks, water (bladder or bottles), jacket, and misc etc items. The pack fits him well, and also can be used by an adult for outdoor activities as mtn biking

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tarn 18 I got this for my son's 5th birthday because he wanted his own pack. He absolutely loves it! It is a great size and he can fit his first aid kit (keeps it in the hydration pocket), jacket, camera, binoculars, ranger book, headlamp, bandanna, hand towel, and snacks very comfortably in the large main compartment. In the smaller pocket on top, he keeps his sunglasses and NP Passport. Lip balm fits perfectly in the waist pockets. He loves the whistle on the chest strap. Take note: This bag is not water resistant at all!! Be sure to put things you don't want ruined (like NP Passports) in a plastic bag or get a waterproof bag cover.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great junior pack! I just bought this for my 5 year old to replace the Deuter Junior pack he had used last summer for camping/hiking/travel and then for school starting this past fall. That bag was actually working fine and had held up wonderfully, but he kept requesting a bag "with zippers" (the Deuter Junior has a drawstring closure and flap that buckles over it, which I guess he found a bit fiddly) and this is perfect - it's essentially the same size but it has the zippers he wanted and a few more features that I really like - most notably the space for a hydration system and the waist belt. I have a feeling that this may replace his Camelbak Mini Mule on hikes because the waist belt and the convoluted foam on the back will make carrying a load much more comfortable. He's already quite fond of the safety whistle.
