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.
Ruffwear K-9 Dog Overcoat Utility Jacketis rated4.0out of5by5.
Rated5out of5byStrand DavidfromSuperior designExcellent design superior to others we have tried. Same for fit. Only concern is that elastic in leg straps could wear before the rest of the coat. We like the visibility, the adjustments and freedom of movement for an active dog. Some additional colors would be welcome. Also some even tougher cover materials for dogs mixing with briars. We have a German Shorthair Pointer with a perfect fit (med).

Rated5out of5byAaJfromBest dog jacket!We have a hard to fit, American Staffordshire Terrier. He has big shoulders and head/neck, and a small ribcage/waist. We've looked all over for good jackets, and tried many different brands. So far this one is by far our favorite! It is easy to clean and a medium fits him perfectly (he weighs 65 pounds), the straps are adjustable and tuck out of the way so that their are no strap "tails" hanging around. It is warm and keeps him cozy with its fleece lining, and it doesn't bother him to wear it! It also has a reflective border and leaves room for him to wear is collar. Plenty of leg room and we've taken him hiking and snowshoeing without any issues with it rubbing him wrong.

Rated1out of5byWilde JagrfromHad to returnThis jacket is very well made, but it has a heavy lining. Description doesn't say that. Which is appropriate if you were to only use it in snow country in the winter, but I was looking for just a rain shell. Main use is to keep the dog dryer in heavy rain, so that after a walk she doesn't soak everything in the house. I also use a harness with this dog so that it is easier to keep her on track. This coat did not work at all with her harness. Thickness being the first problem, the harness would have to go over the coat and I would have to adjust the harness straps every time I put it on her due to the jacket's bulk, but also the leash, because it is attached to the center of her chest (for control) kept getting under the jacket and pulling it up... I think this jacket would be great in snow country for a dog that is off leash, but otherwise not a good choice.

Rated4out of5byJamie the Wannabe Outdoor EnthusiastfromGreat CoatI haven't gotten much time to use the coat, but I thought I would comment about the size listed on REI's website as well as conflicts on the tags while I'm thinking about it. I ordered the medium for my year old boxer since her chest measures 26" and the small was listed on the website with 22-27" and the medium was 27-32". Since she was very close and still slightly growing, I figured the medium wouldn't be much of a stretch. However, when it arrived, the length down her back was way too long. It went over her tail by a few inches (given, her tail is about three inches long, but still). However, the tag showed different sizes than listed on REI's website (which, after ordering the small, matches the sizes listed on the small).
The sizes on the medium were listed as follows:
I believe these sizes are more accurate and would've helped me choose the small instead of the medium the first time around. The small is perfect! And she definitely has room to grow around her chest, which is nice. The end of the coat ends an inch or two shy of her rear end. It hasn't gotten cold enough yet, but considering she already seems to love it, I'm very excited! She shook last year during the winter and we're going to be outside even more this winter! (I also used the reviews from those in other colder regions to help my choice.)

Rated5out of5byJoshua the AdventurerfromLove ItI purchase many "cheaper" coats and thought I could find something as good for cheaper. After purchasing many different brands and returning them I finally purchased knowing I could return. It worked perfect!!! The other coats didn't fit my dogs deep belly and shallow back half. The ruff wear jacket adjusted on the sides to fit and had elastic for extra give. My dog Winston loves this coat! I was worried about it restricting his movements as he loves to run. After him being hesitant about putting it on he forgot about it as soon as he was outside. It keeps him from getting burrs and other brush in his wire coat and the red helps me see him when we strays all while keeping him warm and dry! I am thrify, but find the extra money for this coat well justified!
