    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.

    Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter Plusis rated3.7887out of5by71.
    Rated5out of5byfromNice Filter!I use the Sawyer filter & bags while backpacking on the Appalachian trail and love it. As to pros... it is small, really light, easy to pack and use and has a satisfying flow rate. I have never had to "field" clean it although that is incredibly easy to do (backwash with included syringe). On the Con-side you must bring extra bags as a precaution. If you drop a filled bag from waist-height, it will bust so don't fill completely. If the water source is a trickle then you may need a cup or secondary bag to scoop water to fill the primary bag(s). Really no big deal.

    Rated5out of5byfromAwesomeThis thing worked perfectly I used it to filter water for 10 people on a recent backpacking trip with no issues. I was very impressed with this and will be getting more of these soon.

    Rated1out of5byfromProduct failed - Customer service failedThe idea has validity, but development is far from complete. The threaded portion is defective, causing the critical o ring to dislodge itself. This interferes with it's ability to maintain a complete seal and creates the possibility of losing that critical component altogether. On multiple occasions I have almost lost the o ring entirely, which would have had significant consequences for my trip. The second defect is the bladders, which will inevitably bust, one by one, until you are forced to contact the company's "customer service" department, at which point you will discover the absolute worst part of the product: The people who defend it. They will blame you and question your competency. My best friend purchased the same filter at the same time and independently experienced the EXACT malfunctions that I have described above (including the wretched customer service reps). My experience was not isolated and if you purchase this product you will encounter these issues as well. If you can tolerate the aforementioned defects then you may not be as disappointed as I was. In hindsight, iodine or other treatment tablets are a superior alternative.

    Rated4out of5byfromLove ItLightweight, quick and easy to use. Filter will leak after use so need to take care where you store it. Still have the issue of viruses so a water source survey is advisable, especially if a lot of human activity nearby.

    Rated5out of5byfromBeat ExpectationsI came to this from MSR Miniworks looking for some weight savings. After reading reviews I was concerned about bag leaks or trouble filling it up. Neither was a problem during 10 day trek in Andes. I was careful to only use clean water and always could find some spot to get water to flow into the bag. Carried that syringe cleaner but did not need to use. Speed of flow is scary fast but I did not get sick so I must have worked.

    Rated5out of5byfromWorks greatLightweight and it works great. I will never carry my Katadyn Hiker again. The filter seal to the bag could be warped/leak so I am careful to NEVER over tighten the filter to the bag. A better designed seal would be nice. I have never had a leak BUT I see how it could happen. Water flow is fine BUT I try and never filter super dirty water as it could slow the flow. It is very hard to fill the bags by themselves. The bags require a cup to fill but that is not a problem for me.

    Rated5out of5byfromEasy, Light, Simple, Great Price!I needed this for water purification on hikes and overnight backpacking. I love how "low tech" and easy it is to use. There is nothing complicated about it and no chemicals and it will last forever. It's not bulky or heavy and it's light enough to pack that I can bring it "just in case". No wonder this came so highly recommended! You also can't beat the price!

    Rated5out of5byfromReliable water filtration solutionI needed a workable water filtration solution for my first backpacking journey and the chemical pills weren't going to be it. I gave this a try because it was cheaper than the pumps, compact, and seemed safe enough. Not sure I'd take it into the jungle, but for a northern hike it fit the bill. It was easy to use and the water tasted great.
