    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.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat replacement for my old worn out bgLong daily bicycle rides, (30 to 60 miles) a few times a week.. Plus on the MS Bay to Bay 108 mile ride, I am a Ride Marshal, and need to carry med, and bike supplies...

    Rated1out of5byfromwouldn't fitIt wouldn't fit underneath the seat on by road bike. In fact, I don't see how it would fit underneath any reasonable seat, with the possible exception of a quite large cushy cruiser seat. I bought a Specialized bag instead that is quite large and fits much better.

    Rated4out of5byfromVery functional accessoryLike how it is solid under the seat and can be expanded. Although small, has enough room for all the necessary items.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat bag.I have destroyed other bags Mountain biking. They could not stand up to the constant pounding. The only bad thing is if you want to transfer it to another bike. You can't buy another mounting bracket. *** Why does your software keep adding the word "Can" to the Con's?"

    Rated5out of5byfromLove the Quick Release!The verdict after one summer of road bike use is that it is fantastic: I've probably detached and reattached the thing about 50 times so far, and the quick release is thus far holding up really well. I *love* the quick release, as it only takes a couple seconds to pop it on and off. I also dig how large the main storage compartment is. I carry the following in the main compartment: - a new road tire tube in its box - an Air Chuck Elite (also a fantastic product) - a 16oz CO2 cartridge - a Rema Tip Top TT01 Tour patch kit - a Specialized "Flat Boy" instant patch kit - a Topeak Mini6 Multitool - a pair of Pedros Tire Levers (very large/bulky levers) - a rag - tweezers (some thorns just won't come out w/o them) - a Presta valve adapter - a gallon-size Ziploc to keep everything in (easier to take all contents out out for a repair this way). I have yet to use to the expandable compartment (because I keep food and snacks in a Timbuk2 Goody Box -- also recommended), but it appears I could shove my wallet and/or a Cliff Bar in the expandable portion. The back story: Last summer, to train for a 300mile tour, I found that I would weekly do three long rides in which I would leave my bike for a long lunch break. Fearing that its contents might get stolen if I left my bag attached to my bike (leaving me unable to fix a flat on my return ride), I would detach my bag each time and then reattach before starting my return commute. I quickly tired of my old standard-style bike bag because it was a pain to unhook and reattach. I searched everywhere for a quick release bag that looked like it would hold up to frequent attachments/reattachments, and this bag looked like a winner. As I now begin a new summer of cycling, I saw this bag with the rest of my equipment and thought it was high time I wrote the above review.

    Rated5out of5byfromExpanding seat bagA very nice bag but it would not fit. The plastic quick disconnect and the strap going around the seat post were too far apart. It would not fit my Cannondale and I had to return it. I was disappointed I could not use it.

    Rated5out of5byfromTons of space, fits well.This was a great deal and provides lots of space for anything you need to put in. i can bring a patch kit a snack a phone and more easily.
