    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.

    Rated1out of5byfromHole found in shortsOn the morning of a 65 mile bike ride, I found a large size hole in the seam of the shorts. REI kindly took the shorts back.

    Rated5out of5byfromBig differenceAfter the second 20 mile rail trail bike ride with my husband and having a sore butt for the next day or two, I determined it was time to buy some padding! I did some research and these seemed to have good reviews while not being very expensive, since we don't bike often. We recently did another ride. Although I could still feel a little discomfort, my butt never got sore. Hubby was complaining ;) The other rides got so bad I tried to stand up a lot, never felt the need this time and no residual discomfort. So they definitely served their purpose :)

    Rated5out of5byfromMost comfortable cycling shorts I own!These shorts are so comfy! Waistband and leg bands don't have that irritating rubber, yet they stay in place because they are cut right! The chamois is thick and dries quickly! These are the "go to" short!

    Rated5out of5byfromLove These Shorts!!I absolutely love these shorts! I'm buying another pair for sure. They padding is great, the fit is perfect and they look good, too. I'd been using some old bike shorts (like 15 years old) that I thought were pretty good but after trying these, I'm ready to throw those away. I ride at least 20 miles with each ride and these are so comfortable. They have just the right amount of stretch! I would definitely recommend these! The price is right, too. Some shorts are so expensive and I can't imagine they'd be much better then these.

    Rated5out of5byfromFabulous Fit!Went on V.B.T. bike trip in Tuscany. Decided I wanted 2 pr of cycle shorts so I could wash one ...let dry ...wear a different pr. These are better fitting than the more expensive brands. Has draw string for better fit and the wide waistband is so a pr of yoga shorts with padding! Rode 25-30 miles daily and felt great. Highly recommend them...would love a colorful strip or pattern since I am not a 'black' person...Hint hint manufacturers!

    Rated5out of5byfromVery comfyThese are the most comfortable cycling shorts I own. I will be ordering more! The waist does not roll or shift and the legs are so comfortable. The padding is perfect. Rode an early season 50 miler with no discomfort or chafing. These shorts are perfect.
