    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Zippo Emergency Fire Starter Kitis rated4.3333out of5by3.
    Rated4out of5byfromGreat back-up fire starter!This is a great little back-up fire starter! Unlike most lighters this doesn't run on butane and it past for a really long time. The sparks aren't very hot, but the shoot out pretty far. I used a dry field-mouse nest and got a fire going easily. The tinder sticks are great as well, and burn for a very long time (7-10 minutes) and light easily. Overall, great product!

    Rated5out of5byfromLight and quickI bought this as an emergency starter to have in a day pack. It weighs about the same as a flint & striker and it has the tinders stowed in it. I bought just the tinders a while back and used them with a traditional flint & striker and they light up easy and burn plenty long. The striker built in seems to make plenty of spark too but have not needed to try it with a tinder yet.

    Rated4out of5byfromGood Product but...This is a good product. It only allows for 4 wax tinders and no space for more. It is heavy for what it's purpose and there are better ones on the market. I would not recommend this to a friend. I will keep it as a backup to my other strikers.
