    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 Classic Dog Pack is rated 4.4091 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes Every Walk an Adventure My dog loves this thing. He has lots of nervous energy and is easily excited but when he sees his pack come out he stands very still while I put it on. We only use it to carry his water & maybe a snack. I think he gets a sense of responsibility with his pack and it helps him control his impulsive behaviors but I may be projecting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase for my Pitt I bought this pack so that I could carry more of my own gear for longer trips. I was able to fit her REI food and water bowl with 5 days of food (I did carrier her water). Not only was it functional and good looking but it was reasonably priced compared to ruffwears comparable dogpacks. One unexpected use was safety which I learned fast would become important. My 3 yr old pitt had come a little to close the edge of a steep drop off a few times and I was able to grab her quickly and get her up to safety. This was a life saving tool for my trip and couldn't be happier I bought it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, Durable Pack My 93-pound Yellow Lab carried this for a 5-day, 50-mile trek through Washington's Blue Mountains. It poured rain for the last 4 days and 40 miles of the hike. The dog was at the front, breaking through brush and getting soaked and the pack stayed in place, stood up to tremendous abuse and had enough room to carry his food and 2 liters of water. I had an outdoor equipment tailor add an upright water bottle holding pouch to the inside of each side as, during our initial training hikes we realized that a standard 1-liter bottle laid in the bottom was hitting the dog's legs as he walked and made it a bit uncomfortable. This pack got muddy, wet, hairy and abused with 15 pounds of gear for my four-legged buddy and stood up to the challenge amazingly well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A-MA-ZING I have a lab mix german short hair (60lbs), she is quite a hunter, and she used to drag me crazy on walks, she would walk me more than the opposite. I read a bunch of stuff online about dog backpacks, how it would make the dog think they're on a mission etc.. did not believe much until ....i got one! Gosh she is doing so fantastic now. I take her hiking in the woods, no leash needed, she walks by me the entire time. she carries our water and food and it is amazing how she likes it!! I havent tried the bag with a lot of stuff in it so not sure how tough it is but so far so good! We are both loving it! Would recommend to anyone! Plus, if you have a REI store around, I advise you go in with your dog to try it on. That's what I did.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! I love this pack. I have a 35lb pit bull and I bought a small but it was way too tight around her neck so I sized up to a medium. The straps allow enough adjustability that I can put it on my 80 lb bull mastiff as well. I had another dog pack that rubbed really badly but this one doesn't rub at all. My dog loves to wear it and has so problem going on week long hikes with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Back Pack What I have noticed with all Pet Bags not just the ones from REI is that the sizing is off. If you dog is 50 �?? 100lbs and considered a "large" dog it will end up using a Medium size bag. I have a 55lb Aussie and the medium fits great. The back strap of the bag is a bit loose on him but he does not seem to mind. I can fit everything that he need for a long day hike. The only thing that I wish it had was more pockets to place smaller items in. Other than that I love the pack since my last back pack I bought for him from a pet store broke.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I need another pack for my other dog! This backpack is perfect. Now my dog carries her own water hiking. Every time I take the backpack out, my dog goes crazy because she knows she is going hiking.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from REI Classic Dog Pack We took our American Staffordshire Terrier out for a snowshoeing adventure and had a lot of fun. He got to carry his own pack with snacks and water, we were careful to have it properly balanced on both sides. Their was plenty of room for what we wanted him to carry. The pack sat perfectly on his shoulders, we kept checking for rubbing but even after snowshoeing 6 miles on rough terrain with him running all over the place...he had no raw spots or injuries from the pack. It was perfect! The straps adjusted nicely, only downside is that he's in between the small and Medium size. He has large shoulders and neck with a small ribcage/waist. It was difficult to properly fit him, it would be nice if they had more variations of sizes.
