    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.

    Therm-a-Rest Lumbar Pillow is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product! I bought this pillow for air travel. I was using one of those wire/mesh lumbar back supports for when I fly because the seats on planes are so uncomfortable when you have to sit for 4+ hours. The last time I used mine it didn't seem to help much the mesh/wire were giving too much. So I was looking around online for a relpacement and came across this pillow, found a REI near me that had it in stock and bought it. I was a tad nervous that this pillow wouldn't do the trick because it's so narrow I still brought my wire/mesh support along just to be safe. I used it on my outgoing flight and it worked great. Halfway threw I decided to switch back to the wire/mesh support to compare the two I quickly swtiched back to this pillow asap! I like being able to adjust the air pressure, however I could see it being a bit tricky to do on a plane as the seats are so close together. I was on a asle seat so I just put the end with the nozzle on the outside so I didn't have a issue adjusting the air pressure. If you are in a middle or window seat it will be more tricky to do. I was staying at a family members house and we were rotating sleeping araginemts between a recliner & a sofa. They have a recliner that is pretty old and when you recline in it you have a metal bar in your back, very uncofortable. You know the episode of Seinfeld where Elaine sleeps on Jerry's parents pull out sofa and hurts her back? This recliner reminded me of that episode it is that bad. I acutally used this pillow on the recliner and was the only one who was able to get descent sleep on it. On the nights I was on the sofa I used it as a pillow for my head. I ended up using this pillow daily for a week straight. I deflated this once just to see how much space it would take up, I'd compair the size of this pillow rolled up to the size of a can of soda but taller. Since I bought this for air travel I just left the pillow inflated as it is pretty small, I just tucked it beween my handbag and the handle of my rolling carryon while walking around the airport. I tucked it under my arm while getting on the plane. One side of this pillow is green the other side is gray.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looked cool, but there are better option I bought this to use on long plane rides. However, upon trying it in just a chair at home, I found that the shape was not well suited and it was too thick. I also have a Thermarest camp seat a home that I folded in half, and that worked much better for lumbar support and provided more adjustment ability. There's nothing wrong with this Thermarest pilliow here, just I found a more flexible option in the seat model. I love Thermarest products and always recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lumbar Pillow This lumbar pillow is exactly what the doctor recommended for my back injury. The self-inflating design is excellent. The valve allows me to customize the amount of lumbar support that I require.
