    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromAwfull quality from Patagonia Terrible quality, tremendous wear and pilling after 3 months of mostly casual and indoor use. NEVER again from this brand. Very poor value x money

    by fromGood quality - Bad Zipper I was excited to get an everyday sweater, I'm a big fan of Patagonia. The quality is great but the zipper doesn't stay even& it gives the jacket a cheap look.

    by fromvery warm, very comfortable! The jacket, overall, is fantastic. It's very warm and cuts the wind surprisingly well. It also looks great with a pair of jeans and boots. My only complaint is that the hem seems to be sewn a little unevenly. The jacket zips up fine, but it appears that the bottom of the jacket sits lower on one side of the zipper than it does on the other. It wasn't major enough for me to return the item, but it was a little disappointing considering the price tag.

    by fromFantastic an instant favourite This is a jacket that just feels right. It has become my new favourite jacket. It is like every other favourite jumper/jacket you have ever had. It has that great feel. Not as warm as you might think for the bulk as the wind will blow through it. Great for an Australian winter. M

    by fromBest Sweater This is a great, comfy sweater to have on hand if you need something dependably-warm. I'm 6' tall and 145 lbs (slender build)- so the loose fit of this sweater almost forces you to buy a size smaller. In my case having longer arms, I decided to stick with the Medium as I like to layer under the Better Sweater as well. Be sure to either try one on first if possible as it does run a little big on men. I use this sweater during the fall/spring weather over my long-sleeve dress shirts, (and a tighter running shirt) during my walks around the city.

    by fromGreat Sweater/Jacket This is a great, warm sweater jacket. The only con my husband did not like is the bottom is a bit wide for him and there is not an adjustable band, nor an elastic band on the bottom.

    by fromNice jacket! I needed a new fleece and my sister got this for me for Christmas. She did an excellent job! This jacket looks great and is warm. It's not bulky like my old North Face Denali. The zipper does get stuck a little on occasion but has never come off track. It's not very windproof but doesn't claim to be either. Overall, great jacket!

    by fromJust right between dress and casual Just right weight for cool days and perfect style to be casual but attractive enough to look good in most situations. Pockets are zippered but do not scrape hands and none of the zippers catch cloth or stick! Very comfortable.
