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.

MSR WhisperLite International Backpacking Stoveis rated4.4091out of5by22.
Rated5out of5byMinkelfromBomber StoveThe majority of my camping/backpacking trips are in cold weather and my canister stove wasn't cutting it. The Whisperlite International is an excellent cold weather and high elevation stove! The 20 oz fuel bottle will last over two hours on full blast with white gas which gives you plenty of time to melt snow or boil water. It will also run off unleaded auto gas but I wouldn't recommend it. The additives in auto gas clog the fuel jet often. The stove is also field serviceable and easy to clean. The stove comes with the service tool, pump oil, and a spare o ring for the fuel line connection. It also comes with a lightweight aluminum wind screen and base. The stove is incredibly sturdy. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a durable white gas stove.

Rated5out of5bystatsman4fromGood stoveThis is my second whisperlite after using the first one for more than 20 years. I like the new 'feet' on the more recent version as this adds stability. A very dependable stove and fits into my MSR cook pot which saves space in the pack.

Rated2out of5bylinuxpngfromGood stove, when your tank is mostly fulThe stove works great and as expected with a mostly full tank. It becomes problematic when your tank hits 3/4-1/2 full. It becomes harder to pressurize and difficult to keep going. If it's your morning coffee you're trying to heat up with it, you're going to have a rough time. I will do so digging to see how people cope with it, because I have found it hard to pressurize no matter how often you pump.

Rated5out of5byJ CarnefromGreat Stove!!!This stove is simply wonderful! I use it almost on a daily basis to make tea, hot chocolate, etc. it's just as good in the backyard as it is at 10,000 feet.
The unit is much more stable than I was intending judging by other reviews but I had no problem setting this thing up on rocks in the mountains.
The stove also simmers quite well if you do a little homework. All one has to do is release pressure after getting it nice and hot, pump three times and the flame emitted is just right to simmer!
The only con is that it takes a rather large pot to fit it in, if you want a pot to keep the stove protected in your pack don't even bother looking at ultra lightweight one person pots. Some one liter pots marginally fit the stove but if you want a full fit you will be looking for about 1.5L pots.
Bottom line, this is one quality stove!

Rated4out of5byNW-Hiker-Biker-CamperfromGreat stove for multiple purposesUsed this a few times now. It boils water really fast. I used it to make an italian dinner (pasta and sauce) one night backpacking and it worked well. Not the easiest to turn the heat down to simmer but it can be done.

Rated5out of5byMonsieurHuotfromShould've bought this stove years agoThis stove lives up to its reputation. I've been using the pocket rocket system for close to ten years now. After my adventures got me into ultra peaks a couple years ago, I learned the hard way at Mt. Shasta base camp that pressurized canister systems just don't work well at high elevations. It took nearly a full canister to boil down a liter of water, with little options to cook my dinner. The stove's ability to use multiple fuels makes it super versatile. I recommend using white gas, but being able to use automobile gasoline is a great option if you're in a bind! This system is tried-and-true as other reviewers have commented! As for the the review stating that the system was too complicated, and the reviewer almost lit himself on fire, I just don't see how with this stove appearing to be nearly "idiot proof". As always, REI's free shipping got me my order delivered in two days. Bottom line, this stove is worth every penny!

Rated5out of5byAussiefromSuper reliableReliable stove that will burn anything with a quick and easy jet change. Shaker jet clears out anything that jets into fuel to block the nozzle. Straightforward to light, melts snow and boils water fast. The only downside is that low simmering isn't really possible - but as the only down side that's easy to live with.
