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.

Rated5out of5byGypsy819fromGreat Pants!I actually used these for skiing and they worked great! Very flexible and I don't think they are considered "waterproof" but this was my first time skiing so I spent most of the day in the snow and these worked just fine for me.

Rated4out of5bySarahDCfromGood all around outdoorsy pantsI bought these pants mainly to use in the winter. I needed something that was wind and water resistant to wear in the snow. I like these pants because they're stretchy and easy to move in. They work great for cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and winter hiking. Definitely need a warmer layer underneath since they're only a shell.

Rated5out of5byService Puppy RaiserfromBest hiking/every day pants everI purchased these pants for our winter "bucket list" hike into the Grand Canyon. We live in Florida, so I did not have anything warm and wind proof. We've had some COLD weather lately, so I have been able to try them on training hikes over our high rise bridge and up and down light house steps on really blustery days. They are warm but not hot and fabulously comfortable. They are also very attractive which it is difficult to appreciate in the photo. Additionally, as a puppy raiser for a service dog group, I have a dog with me almost everywhere I go, and the four handy and secure zipped pockets allow me to leave my purse at home. Whether you are handling a leash or hiking poles or just want to look great for a lunch date, these are the pants for you.

Rated5out of5bykathbushfromSo GreatI wear these pants almost every day to bike 4+ miles to work in the city. They fit perfectly over another pair of pants without being too bulky. Totally water/snow proof, the zip pockets are so handy, and I can easily stuff the bottoms into my boots. Such a great buy!

Rated5out of5byBoomshakalakafromThis pant is a workhorse!I took these pants out for 170 miles of the Long Trail in Vermont in September/October 2013. Their stretchy fabric was heaven for strenuous climbs. Rain and wet tended to roll off the fabric surface and even in an intense rain, though the fabric allowed water to penetrate - I still felt warm. Freezing windy conditions were no problem either. This particular stretch of trail was plagued with deep mud nearly every day, resulting in mud accumulating and drying in the seams and hems of these pants. No worries - it all came out in the wash. I did experience a small amount of friction rubbing from one of the side pocket zippers, but used a bit of moleskin to fix the problem. I thought these were great fall/winter/spring pants. Might be a bit warm in the summer.

Rated5out of5bySue the multitaskerfromJust bought second pairCouldn't get by with only one pair anymore! I can go from home office, to kid's school, to the mall during all seasons-just wear different base layer (or none). They look great and rise to natural waist line. LOVE these. I'm an average weight, shapely woman who's had a child--and these don't make me feel like a frumpy old Mom! They make me feel good-like my former, pre-child self!

Rated5out of5bykatalinafromBest Fitting Hiking PantsI have tried on so many pants from so many other companies and they are always cut too low, or too weird or bulky in the crotch. These ones are really well-fitted, just below the waist, enough room for your behind so they don't ride down when you sit. Perfect! I can't wait to wear them to my next hike.

Rated5out of5byTravel for lifefromMost travel friendly pants I ever had.I love this pants so much that I do not want REI discontinue this product. I created my public profile in order to praise this pants here. I love this more than any other brand travel friendly pants I have or I tried. They are stylish, and yet functional. Those side zipped pockets are wonderful, fit camera, passport, IPhone, and all kinds of other things without fearing dropped them out accidentally. I wish all of my travel pants have those pockets. I will buy those pants just because of that, not to mention about other wonderful features this pants have. I do not need to wash them on a 2 weeks trip, if I have another light weight pants to change once or twice. After I bought them, I have never left them home on my trip, especially comfortable on those long international flights or layovers. I wish REI can also make a lighter version for hot summer use. They are a bit heavy for summer. I have bought another pair to save for the future, even though my first pair is still in a very good condition.
