    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 Venturi Shorts - Women's is rated 4.125 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Revised review I originally gave these shorts a "5". But the pockets have caused me to reassess that number. Because they aren't sewn pockets (maybe they're heat-closed or something?) they don't hold together. All of the pockets in the front have come undone and cannot be used as everything falls right out onto the ground. And I can't sew them together to make them work because I'd be sewing to the actual front of the shorts and that would look pretty tacky. The back pockets are fine as they're "real" pockets. They're without a doubt the most comfortable shorts in my closet, but are now pocketless. Makes me sad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic shorts! Whoa, these are perhaps the most comfortable shorts I've ever owned! I have a "womanly" figure (big hips/butt) and that means that often the waistline is too big. But these are perfect!AND they are stretchy, so they give ample room for my saddlebaggy thighs. Where, oh where, are the other colors?! They are quite pricey, but soooo comfortable! The only cons is that the waistband has that super-thin cord to make it tighter and the plastic thing digs into you since it's right against your skin.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these, and the long pants, too Very comfortable shorts with a customizable waist adjustment. The only thing I would recommend is the regular pockets could be deeper and an added zipper would help contain items. I've used them while geocaching, and have found my pen and lip balm on the seat when I get out of my vehicle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts! Love the shorts, so much that I bought them in both colors! The fit is great, true to size. I love the abundance of pockets, especially the two zippered ones. I've also found that these shorts dry quickly, and help keep me cool. I too wish they came in more colors!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great shorts Very comfortable shorts. I like the longer length and the zipper pockets. These are great shorts for travel and casual wear. They are a little expensive, but these are the best shorts I have bought in a few years.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love These Shorts I would buy many more of these shorts if there were more colors, especially more interesting colors than black and putty! The hip pockets are too shallow for my phone so it goes to the zip pocket. These were on the large size when compared to other shorts marked as the same size. I did not try one size down. At times I feel like I want a belt - I recently discovered the pull string inside the shorts so that will help!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts I own I love these shorts. I led a trip that involved backpacking, climbing, and rappelling and these were the only shorts I wore for the entire two week trip. They were perfect for all activities. We had multiple water crossings & they dried by the end of the day. I wish I could afford 3 more pairs because I am sure the 1 pair I own will begin to show wear & tear, but so far the only signs on them are a few stains.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So awesome, even a dude can wear them! I am a dude and I wear these shorts. Why? Elastic fabric is awesome for active people. Great material. Great looking. The mens version is nearly knee length and I am not cool with that (plus I have shaved legs from years of cycling so who wants to hide that). Also, I didn't like our color selections. The pockets on the legs are so useful for a wallet, phone, keys, gel or bars. Belt loops so I can wear a security zipper belt when I travel. The only issue I have, and I think chicks would also have is.. much too shallow pockets. Things easily fall out. Oh, and more colors would be nice. I am a 5'10" 150 pound straight male and size 10 is perfect. Just keeping it honest and real.
