    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.

    REI Explorer Hat - Men'sis rated4.2out of5by5.
    Rated5out of5byfromAwesome hatI bought this hat about 4 years ago, originally for backpacking. I've been in the heat and in the snow with this hat and it performs well. When its pouring water from the sky the hat repels well. It does get soaked through but never stops doing its job. I have had no issues with the snaps or string. It has faded though. I sweat a lot and salt stains have destroyed it so much its a totally different color now. I currently use it daily at work while outside in the sun or rain.

    Rated3out of5byfrom2nd try at the same hatThis was a replacement for a recently purchased hat of the same model which had a broken brim snap. Seems to have good quality and hasn't broken like the older one, here's hoping it wears well.

    Rated3out of5byfromgreat against hailWorks great for everywhere I've worn it - Absorbs sweat well, protects from Sun, Rain and Hail very well. One of the poorly constructed snaps broke in the first few weeks :(

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat HatI bought this hat in 2010 prior to a month long trip to Africa. I bought a $5 can of silicon water proofing spray and treated it with that ( I treated it again 1/5 yrs later). It has been awesome! It was great for the trip to Africa. Since then, I have worn it in the rain, snow and sun. It's warmer than a lot of mesh hats, but much stronger. I've since used it on another long trip throughout Southeat Asia. Again it performs well. It has been crammed into suitcases and trampled on. It always regains its shape quickly. The display pics don't do it justice. It looks much better than that. But I do have to say that it doesn't fit in everywhere. It looked out of place on the beach in SoCal, but now that I'm in the Pacific Northwest it fits right at home. Great hat. Great price
