    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 of5byfromWonderful gym bagI bought this bag for going to and from the gym. The shoe pocket is wonderful and I am able to organize everything I need. I also brought it on a short weekend trip and it was wonderful.

    Rated3out of5byfromToo smallVery nice quality, but it's just too small for my work clothes and shoes. I returned it.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat BagI use this bag to carry my gear to and from the gym. I love the way it fits in the locker! I participate in a variety of classes at the gym / pool and find the bag roomy enough for my gear.

    Rated3out of5byfromToo smallI purchased this to use at the gym as it seems like it was made for that general purpose. It is sized to fit into a locker,has an outside water bottle holder etc. However, if you actually plan to bring your towel, clothes, shoes, hair dryer and whatever else you need to hit the gym,and then get dressed for work or whatever,this is not your bag. It really does not hold much. I used the yoga mat strap on the outside to hold some of my stuff as the bag would not zip otherwise.And that's without packing any clothes into it, except underwear, minimalist sneakers and socks. It would work as a carryon personal bag for air travel. Definitely would fit under the seat, and has a pocket for your cell phone and a key fob as well.

    Rated5out of5byfromLove this bagI picked this bag out for my Birthday present. I wanted a gym bag that would fit easily the the lockers and this one is perfect. I love the color and the thickness of the material - it is not flimsy at all and feels like it will last a long time. I have been using for 3 months now on a very regular basis. Here are my thoughts: 1. Love the separate compartment for gym shoes/dirty clothing. The vent is nice so that the bag doesn't start to stink. 2. Lots of great pockets for deodorant, jewelry, weightlifting gloves, curling iron, etc. 3. I use the outside strap for my jacket and it works great. 4. I've gotten a lot of complements on this bag. 5. My only complaint is because of the shape of the top of the bag, it is hard to close when I have it full with my clean clothes and shoes, makeup bag and shower bag.

    Rated2out of5byfromstrange storage spaceI really wanted to like this bag. Because i really needed a good gym bag. I don't carry a lot to and from the gym and was even willing to carry small things in my regular bag. but the shoe pocket made the room in the bag itself really strange - there was a little bit of space above the shoe bag and not a whole lot of room in the rest of the bag once there were shoes in it. I was really disappointed and took it back.

    Rated1out of5byfromCaution Color Bleeds when WetI purchased this bag in the green color in May of 2013 and really like the size and functionally of it. It was the right size for carrying all of my gear, as well as my lunch and personal items, to work without being too bulky on the bus. However, be cautions carrying this bag in the rain. I have since realized when the bag gets wet the gray/silver coloring on the underside of the strap bleeds and rubs off on clothing. Unfortunately, I did not realize this until two of my coats have been ruined with whitish-gray streaks across the chest were the shoulder strap damp/wet from rain rubbed off on my coat. Perhaps, I just got a bad bag, but none-the-less I would not recommend this bag.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat BagThis bag has perfect functionality... I can easily bring it with me on the train/bus or toss it in the car. It fits everything... water bottle, yoga mat, dirty shoes, phone, keys, extra clothes.... even extra stuff if you need to shower at the gym. The color is bold, but still neutral.
