    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.

    by fromGood with caveats Set up for this tent is logical and quick. The poles are well made. A big plus for this tent is that, while already being a good value, it's an even better one when you consider that the footprint is included. We used this tent for fall camping in Northern Pennsylvania. At temperatures of approximately 34 degrees F, we had an enormous amount of condensation. In the morning, we could here it dripping off the fly onto the tent walls. Otherwise, the tent is roomy inside. This is a good tent for the price. Caveats are condensation (as described above) and that, in addition to its weight, it doesn't pack very small either.

    by fromPretty good tent. Good product. Would have gotten 5 stars, but it is smaller than some 2-man tents I have owned. I usually run exclusive 3-man tents with two people. Also, a folding vent near the top of the rain fly would make this tent more breathable. Overall, pretty good product.

    by fromQuick and Easy! Bought this tent on sale after comparing many tents. Looking for something that was comfortable enough for 2 adults and 3 dogs. It is very comfortable in size for 2 adults and a bit of gear, but I wouldn't want anything else in there. The fly/vestibule is too small for much more than shoes. Having two doors is awesome though. I like the little corner pockets, perfect for bear spray. Super easy to set up for one person, takes only minutes. And sturdy enough it doesn't need pegged down. I am pleased with this tent for the price I paid, however, if I paid full price, I would be disappointed on size.

    by fromDoes the job My wife and I got this tent mostly for car camping - we have a lighter two person tent for backpacking. We've been out in some moderate to heavy wind, and the fly did a great job of keeping it comfortable inside the tent while our friends camped a dozen feet away got woken up in their tent. It's a bit heavier/bulkier than I'd prefer to backpack with, but split between two people it wouldn't be too bad. It'd be a very tight fit for three, though.

    by fromGood Value, Good Performance, Good Tent Worked really well. Easy up and Easy down. Camped on a saddle in the Spring Mountains north of Las Vegas, NV. The weather got down to 28F that night, but had surprisingly little condensation in the morning. Only down side was that wind (30mph) created a small draft that was chilly at 28 degrees, but would probably be great at most any temperature above 40.

    by fromQuality and Value I used this tent Camping when carrying a long distance was not an issue. I would not say its heavey but there are lighter tents out there. Otherwise it is durable, and well designed. Great buy.

    by fromI would buy this brand again I used this tent on a 4 night / 5 day bike tour where I only had to set it up the first day. The last night we had 3 major downpours of rain as storms passed through, I stayed dry inside. Upon packing it up the last day I noticed the tent floor in one corner had little moisture, I feel this was my fault due to where I set it up. I'm looking forward to using this tent on my next tour.

    by fromGreat Tent - Lacks Ventilation Great tent! Used this tent on a canoe trip recently. Sets up very quickly, solid construction, weather proof in most situations. When packed, it's a little long/bulky unfortunately. The tent is suitable for backpacking, but not ideal. It works well in situations when a little larger tent can be afforded. The only flaw I found aside from being rather large, heavy, and bulky when packed, is that it tends to collect a fair amount of condensation. This tent would be almost perfect for a good sized tent if it had two ventilation scoops on the top. Overall very happy with this tent. Would definitely buy again.
