    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.

    Grivel G1 Ice Axeis rated4.0out of5by5.
    Rated4out of5byfromLight and SharpThis does the job. It was purchased mainly to hike on glacier and fortunately it was never used to self arrest myself or a friend falling. I did a couple of voluntary slides to practice self arrest and it was conclusive. The only issue is that REI doesn't sell the ice axe leash or the ice axe guard. The only leash and guard available are for the black diamond model and it fits but I decided to buy the OEM part elsewhere. No big deal but this is the reason to keep it at 4 stars.

    Rated4out of5byfromMade in Italy for the same priceThis nice quality made in Italy basic ice ax is the same price as the Black Diamond made in China ice ax. The other Grivel ice axes are also nice.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat Ice AxeThis ice axe is excellent. It is ideal for crossing or ascending snow fields, and is just a great mountaineering axe in general. I also did as much or more carrying of this axe (because of the warm season) as I did using it, but it was not much of a problem at all because the axe is so lightweight.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat axe. Prefer it to the Raven.I prefer this axe to the Raven for a few reasons: 1) I think this axe feels more solid in my hand. I don't think it's going to break at any time and I have no problem trusting it as an anchor during a crevasse rescue, self arrest etc. 2) I love the color. So much better than the dark grey that the Raven comes in 3) The price is right. Grivel has never marked up ridiculously on any of their products and I will support them for that. Had great experience with their G22s as well 4) Made in Italy and not in China like BD stuff. Need I say more?

    Rated4out of5byfromGrivel Ice AxeI used the grivel to teach my niece and nephew to self arrest, it was great and the bright yellow made it easy to find in the snow. It was also used going up Baldy's bowl this winter. I felt safer having in my possession. The only drawback I found slightly irritating is that there are limited holes in the axe head to tie a safety rope. But I found a way (:
