    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.

    Kelty Cabana - Large is rated 3.9167 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! -But not water'PROOF' I have only used this twice, but want to share the experience: Used as a day shelter at a canine agility trial. The price point was great. Very easy to set up. The tent drew a small crowd of admirers checking it out. First day's use gets 5 stars, one man, one dog, a large dog crate, and a low comfortable camp chair made a cozy shelter. It was easy to help my reactive dog from getting over excited about all the other dogs around us. -This is what it was purchased to do! Second day, it steady-moderate-rained all day long. After a few hours of that mess, I noticed a couple of pin hole drips at the upper seams. Naturally one was directly over my head! 4 stars for that, but I agree with the REI staff that asking this product to be waterPROOF is a bit much. (So I bought some seam sealer glue, but hopefully will never have a chance to review that!) The Cabana was sturdy enough that a tarp thrown over it later worked fine. Questions not yet answered: - How will it hold up over time and more use? It sure is very lightweight! - What about wind? - What about open field use in hot, sunny, no-wind conditions? Will the one open side and two mesh windows provide enough air circulation? Quite happy with it overall.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for casual outings I bought this Cabana about a year ago, primarily to use on outings at the beach, as a place for our dogs to lie, and to get out of the sun. I haven't had that opportunity yet, but this past Saturday I used it for the first time, at my grandsons football games. It was a bright, sunny day with winds of ten to twenty MPH. My wife and I set up the shelter with no real problems. The stakes were a little too lightweight for the rather hard ground we encountered, so I've already bought some heavier ones. The stakes supplied with the unit should be perfectly adequate for sand, however. Although the wind was blowing constantly, the Cabana and it's design really performed well. We were very comfortable. With the shelter situated with its back to the wind, its low, wide profile, when staked, made it very stable. We watched other parents trying to keep their pop-up tent shelters from blowing over, or just collapsing. So I think this is a great equipment addition for us. I'm actually looking forward to using it in cooler weather. It should be fine. One more thing, I went to REI yesterday and bought a tarp to use as a footprint. I think the floor of the Cabana will last much longer if you use one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great purchase!! This made our beach trip amazing! I have lupus so I need to be careful about my sun exposure. This cabana allowed me to stay at the beach and control how much I stayed in the sun. Second day there it was windy so we spent most of the time in the cabana with the "door" open. Enjoyed watching the ocean, feet in the sand, without being blown to pieces. Easy and fast to put up - 5 minutes tops. Kept sand out of everything. Going to Hawaii in a couple of weeks to visit friends. Airline won't let us carry it on so we are buying another one and having it shipped as a thank you gift to our hosts.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't wait to use again Just used this for a day at the beach and it performed perfectly. Was super easy to set up with assistance in moderately windy conditions. Packs down small to make easy to carry plenty of room inside for two adults to sit comfortably.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and Strong Used this for the first time this past weekend. Set it up alone on the beach in under 10 minutes in sustained 15 knot winds with 25 knot gusts. Worked great as a windbreak and sunshade for the kids. Did need to use the guyout cords and fill the sand bag pouches.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our new garage Tall enough to add privacy when sitting. Freestanding. Super-easy setup. Can stake it or use sandbags. Park it next to the green lower panel of the Kelty Shade House to make a "garage" or dry storage area. It's just a titch too long for our medium Shade House (not being sold anymore by REI, unfortunately, except as overstock), but you can still zip it, etc. Probably fits the large Shade house perfectly. Don't know why REI not selling these anymore. We love our Shade House. Endured heavy rainstorm -- seemed totally water/windproof. Poles seem rugged and not scratchy. Floor panel rolls or zips up and it's rugged -- no digs even though we set wood and tools on it. Construction seems good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! This was so great. I live in Florida and am always at the beach. I would love to stay out all day, but as a red head even if I dip my entire body in sunscreen I burn. This way I can stay out all day and not get burned. So easy to set up. The only downside is (since I am only an occasional camper) like most tents, hard to stuff back in the bag. Having said this it is great. And I would easily get one again if my current one ever broke.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the beach I used this on the beach in Milwaukee as a shaded area / place to store our stuff. It works great.
