    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 of5byfromGood sun protection, but they get foggyGood performance for skiing and Cycling with the sole disadvantage of getting foggy extremely quickly if you are using a hat and/or you don't move with enough speed for the glasses to ventilate

    Rated5out of5byfromAwesome Glasses!These glasses are great. Not only do I think they are super stylish, but they are very comfortable. The frame fits nicely and the clip-on side protectors are perfect. They also provide very good protection in the sun. I could not recommend these enough!

    Rated5out of5byfromHighly recommendI'm a kiteboarder and wanted some dark glasses for on the water use. These come with added, removable side wind protection, as they are made for being on snow/glaciers. Since I spend a lot of time in the wind, they come in handy. When I sue them for casual use, I remove the wind protectors. Since these glasses are made for snow, they are dark which is great for me since my eyes are sensitive to light. They are not polarized, but still work great for watersports!

    Rated2out of5byfromMediocre fit and weak retainer strapBought these for a Denali ascent. At home beforehand, could not get the fit right. Shields rested on my cheekbones, while big gap at the eyebrow. Bent sides around ears in all sorts of configurations and could not get a good fit. Took anyway, and then on the Kahiltna Glacier the retainer strap loosened every 20 minutes or so. Just not enough friction between rubber slider and strap. Chums or other straps would have worked much better. Pulled my 25+ year old REI glacier glasses out of my pack, with equally old Chums strap and wore them for the next 22 days. Maybe not designed for American faces, or maybe just not well designed. REI should bring back their classic branded models.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat eye protectionRecently used on a few climbs in WA. Did research on quite a few glasses and decided on these. I'm 6'3" with a normal size face and the glasses fit great; they provided great coverage on glaciers, I was concerned about light coming from the bottom but this was not an issue. The fact I could bend the sides around my ears to ensure they didn't slip was welcomed and why I recommend these glasses. I live in MI so I won't be using these more than a few times a year, however for the price point they will serve the purpose well.

    Rated5out of5byfromNICE LIGHT AND GREAT WIND PROTECTIONMy eyes get watery when out on my road bike on cycling trips. Although these are geared towards Mountain Climbing the lower shields caught my attention. They work perfectly for blocking the wind when I am riding. Lenses are made for extreme light but work fine in moderate light as well. Arm ends are adjustable/bendable for a perfect fit. Look great and have received lots of interest from fellow bike riders. I just think they should have included a micro fiber sunglass bag for cleaning and storage. You do get a nice head strap. I just LOVE them and wear them riding and just around town. Worth the money and I have no regrets!

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat glassesWore these a couple times on overly sunny days on the mountain. Didn't have any problems. They feel lighter than I expected, but they fit comfortably. When I first held them, the frames felt flimsy, but after a few days use I was able to get comfortable with their stability. These did a great job of blocking the brightness while still allowing me to see everything clearly. A couple times when we stopped moving, I had problems with them fogging up, but that's a problem I have with all eyewear, so I'm guessing it's more me than the glasses. Oh, and I look awesome in all the photos from those weekends, so there's that.

    Rated4out of5byfromNice glasses and caseI haven't had a chance to use the product much yet, but I'm impressed by the quality. I'm always losing or breaking sunglasses. These appear to be very sturdy and have a good carrying case, which should prolong their life in my backpack. I wear contacts, so these will work great while the lenses are in. If there are times that I have to wear my glasses, I'll have to find an alternative solution.
