    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.

    The workhorse Black Diamond Half Dome helmet is designed to take on all your mountain pursuits, from cragging to alpine expeditions.

    • Half Dome is completely redesigned to be more than 40g lighter than the original version and yet it's still the most durable helmet that Black Diamond offers
    • Hybrid design uses molded EPS foam inside and a hard plastic shell outside to protect your head from impacts
    • Large vents on the sides and back help keep your head cool on hot summer days
    • Internal headband adjusts with a nape-mounted dial so you can fine-tune the fit; dial is easily operated with 1 hand
    • Black Diamond Half Dome helmet has low-profile clips that keep your headlamp (sold separately) secure, even when you're climbing in tight spaces

    Please note: Black Diamond products can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

    Black Diamond Half Dome Helmetis rated4.2143out of5by14.
    Rated4out of5byfromSafety and ComfortGreat all round helmet. Adjustments are made easy with the dial great for long day climbs or just a short day out on the wall.

    Rated3out of5byfromCompletely AdequateI've been using this helmet pretty continuously since I've purchased it. I've worn it on a few multipitches, some of which were all day endeavors. The good thing about this helmet, is that it works. However, after taking a minor beating, it appears that it needs to be replaced sooner than I'd have wanted. There's a pretty sizable dent in it from lightly hammering it against a stuck BD stopper in a crack (using a nut tool) and I expected slightly more resilience for the price. Either way, I'm happy with this purchase.

    Rated4out of5byfromSimple and FunctionalUsed this for climbing 14ers where falling rock from other climbers was a concern. This helmet was comfortable and I forgot that I had it on even after several full days of hiking/climbing. This is a simple helmet that gets the job done.

    Rated4out of5byfromperformed 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!

    Rated4out of5byfromGood But GoofyBought 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.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat productI 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)
