    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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 fromInexpensive insurance! I liked how compact this space blanket was compared to others I've used. I bought 3 of these 2 for my packs and 1 to try before use. I consider these a last ditch / survival use and not as an everyday subsitute for a blanket or sleeping bag. I spent a night out on the AT in PA with just this blanket, an army poncho and liner in 45 degree weather. Like all space blankets it was noisey and there was some condensation inside. The blanket didn't tear and I believe it would have lasted for many days if taken care of. Even at home I wasn't able to fold small enough to put back in the bag but I could get into a pocket. I like the recloseable pouch it comes in because it protects the blanket while stored and gives you a waterproof pouch to store stuff like dry tinder etc.

    by fromOne of the best! Keep one or two of these in your kit; they can be used in a variety of ways as any good, heavy-duty plastic sheeting can. This two-sided space blanket is easily visible in virtually any environment, and the reflective coating is resilient unlike most cheaper versions. Buy a couple of extra to practice with *before* you need to use it, however, as one needs a PhD in folding to get it repacked. Highly recommended even for a minimalist kit.

    by fromGreat Blanket Slept in my car at night with engine and heater off when temp. was about 38 degrees F. I'm 5'7", blanket covered me completely and within minutes I was toasty. I moved around quite a bit and it didn't tear. Appears fragile, but is extremely strong. Easy to fold back up when done. I purchased more after this experience.
