    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    • Polartec Power Dry utilizes 2 different yarns on either side of the fabric to enhance comfort: interior yarn wicks moisture, and exterior yarn dries quickly
    • The combination of the 2 yarns helps keep you dry during highly aerobic activities because it moves moisture away from skin faster than single-component fabrics such as cotton
    • Updated fabric protects skin against harmful ultraviolet light with a UPF rating of 20
    • Flatseam construction is soft and non-chafing next to skin; seams are designed to work under pack straps at shoulders
    • Underarm and side gussets promote freedom of motion
    • Dropped back hem stays tucked in
    • The REI Lightweight Polartec Power Dry long-sleeve crew features a next-to-skin fit that hugs the body and boosts fabric performance

    Made in USA.

    by fromNot as good as I expected The lightweight Power Dry was a disappointment. I have the medium and heavy, and like both of them, but the light weight version just doesn't work as well. The fabric needs to be either a little bit slicker on the inside, or a little bit stretchier. As it is, it binds up around the chest/shoulders, and I worry about putting too much stress on the seams. Overall, I'm keeping it because it fits a hole in my temperature range, but would recommend others try it on before purchasing.

    by fromJust a note on the fabric The picture on the website for the zinc color is a little off. The zinc portion of the shirt is much lighter online. It is almost gray in the store. It is also rather itchy, but very wicking! I will use this shirt in the winter as a base layer, but for the summer, I would recommend a cotton shirt. For morning runs below 60 degrees, it is an ideal shirt, but for being out in the sun, get cotton. The best use for this shirt would be as a base layer for snowsports or climbing a chilly mountain. For being comfortable in cold weather going to work or school, use a wool base layer. Because this shirt is synthetic, it will be durable. Because it is made in America, it will be ethical. Wool is a more comfortable but less durable base layer. Compared to the Patagonia base layer, the Patagonia is slightly lighter, but a little less itchy. If you want to know which one to get, get both.

    by fromGreat for soccer on chilly nights I've been wearing under my soccer jersey on chilly nights and it's the best shirt I've found so far. It feels dry and keeps me warm.

    by fromGreat shirt Darn fine shirt. I put this to the test on a back country trail project. This shirt is not just a base layer, but a great all around top layer. The fit wasn't to snug and the fabric is durable; get one while you can since I will be grabbing a few more for future trail work ;-)

    by fromDoes the job I gifted this to my boyfriend (6' 1", 155 lbs., medium frame) and he uses it primarily for skiing. He says that he does like it a lot, that it's a perfect fit for activity (and for just wearing around on cold days), and that it does pretty much what he expects a baselayer ought to do--except that it could be a tad warmer and would suggest wearing an extra mid-layer for cold-weather skiing (anything below 15-ish degrees F). He wears a Patagonia down sweater (size small) and Arc'teryx Beta LT jacket (size L for the times he needs an extra layer) on top. I think it looks perfectly snug around his chest and shoulders (the way my baselayers fit) and a little too loose around his waist (30 in. waist), though he says it fits well. Note: he hasn't quite used it enough to say it's durable or not!

    by fromDecent value I use this as a base layer for day to day activities as well as running and hiking in cooler weather (40). The product performs adequately, however the material is tight in the chest and upper arms and those areas end up being a bit cooler than others because of it. I purchased this item, as well as the matching bottoms, because others had commented that they perform as well as more expensive marino wool products. Unfortunately, I have discovered this isn't the case. While a comparable marino wool product may cost 10 or 20% more, the added comfort and permormance is well worth it for me. If you keep an eye out for sales you can find better products for the same as this inferior product.

    by fromNeed more! What amazes me is that I wore them for a week (airing them out a few hours a day), and they are not ripe at all. The comfort and performance never faded the whole week, in both work and play. I honestly only notice them when they are off. I think they are a decent deal for the price. I just want another pair.
