    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I love this helmet and have not had any issues with it so far. I used it in Nevada at Red Rocks and it worked perfectly and made me feel very safe (as safe as you can be, climbing LOL)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from performed as expected! i bought this helmet because my bike or snowboard helmet wouldn't cut it while rappelling in zion canyon, and i am very happy with its performance. i used it again when caving at lava beds. it did the job of protecting my head from the occasional bumps and scuffs, it worked great with my buff sweatband and petzl headlamp, and i look forward to getting it out in the wild again soon!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lightweight Helmet Great helmet, has saved my head multiple times from falling debris at the crag. Lightweight and comfortable, definitely a great value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good But Goofy Bought this helmet after trying quite a few on over about a 6-month period. It was the most comfortable at this price point: fair amount of soft pads spaced evenly under the styrofoam and the dial-suspension is clutch. The balance is pretty good--you don't feel much weight. The headlamp clips are a little too short, but lock a standard ~1" elastic strap in in just fine. I intentionally didn't look at myself in a mirror prior to buying this because just about every helmet makes me look like a tool and I knew that would be too discouraging. Despite that, I was still shocked at just how high this helmet sits on my mellon (which is admittedly somewhat pointy). Made me realize that I have just about zero protection coming from anywhere but straight above, which is fine for falling rocks but leaves something to be desired for protection around the crown. Do an image search for people actually using this & you'll see what I mean. Anyway, I'd still recommend this one. It might save your life & is a clutch gopro mount if nothing else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid helmet This is a solid helmet. I took it on a two day trip to Smith Rock and it performed beautifully. I didn't actually get hit by a rock, but it was very comfortable to wear (I actually forgot I had it on a few times). My one complaint would be that it scuffs easily (I put it down gently on a rock and there was a small scratch when I picked it back up). Great helmet for a great price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Helmet, Great Design! I have had the opportunity to use this helmet multiple times since I purchased it and so far it has been great. The only issue I have with it is that the helemt rests high on my head with well over an inch and a half between the top of my ear and the rim of the helmet. I am not sure if a larger size would offer more coverage of my head, but I would just have to try a larger size to see.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid design I haven't used it a lot or in an extreme scenario; but for what its worth its good to have a solid helmet that protects the head from injuries and this Black Diamond helmet is just that. Pretty solid design Ability adjust the belts Scratches easily though

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great affordable helmet Worked as I thought it would. The small/medium was more on the smaller side so I returned it and got a medium/large. I haved used it for ice climbing with a liner underneath and I am looking forward to using it in Redwing, MN in the coming weeks. While ice climbing, small chunks of ice fell on me while belaying. I have not put this thing to any hard tests, but I hope I never have to.
