    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 fromNice compact lightweight floodlight I think that as technology for lamps continues to improv we'll see brighter lamps with same weight and same or longer runtimes. I used this lamp for night jogging. Can definitely get by but since finding out about the Black Diamond Sprinter this light is no longer in us. Probably best use would be as backup for its light weight. I think its ideal model would put out 60 or so lumens to be really useful for jogging at night.

    by fromGood value I use this to read during power outages, to do home repairs (so much nicer than clamping a flashlight between my teeth!), and to shed extra light on needlework projects. The lamp tilts up and down. The dimmer feature is nice for longer battery life, and I can't detect any LED dimmer-flicker, even when reading in a dark room. I've never tried reading at the dimmest setting (too dim), so I can't swear there wouldn't be any flicker at the lowest end. For the price, this is a great tool.

    by fromUseful gizmo In addition to camping and recreational use it's been real handy for everyday stuff like finding things in the dark, checking under the hood, etc. - stuff you would normally need to hold a flashlight for. Now that I've got it I keep finding interesting ways to use it.

    by fromGreat for kids... I was looking for a great "kids" headlamp, and thoroughly like all the Black Diamond lights I have, but the Wiz requires a small screwdriver to be carried everywhere it goes. The Gizmo does not require an eyeglass repair kit to change the batteries and it also has the same 2 hour shut-off feature that the Wiz has. My 3 year old loves this thing.

    by fromA headlamp fit to be a 2014 Visionary Award Dear REI and Petzl - I'm a long-time gearhead who now works in marketing and fundraising for a 70-year-old Denver institution - Sewall Child Development Center. We are a 100 percent inclusive preschool, Kindergarten and outreach agency educating children with and without special needs or seen/unseen disabilities. Each spring we present the Champions for Children Community Awards Breakfast, and for the last several years, I have obtained this simple yet quality headlamp as part of a lunchbox of goodies for our Visionary Award winner. Their lifetime of work and dedication to children and the vulnerable in the State of Colorado can be difficult and finding the way through dark times (while still needing both hands) is part of the journey. Favorite cookies and other fun tokens are also included. Thank you for being part of our great tradition, and find out who our award winners are at In 2014, Colorado Senator Dr. Irene Aguilar in District 32 became our Visionary! I personally love Petzl products from headlamps to the high-quality rock climbing gear they manufacture and beautifully document with excellent safety materials. I hope that our recipients are as excited as I am about Petzl items...I find the best for the best. - PBS, an REI member since 1982.
