    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.

    • Hipbelt pocket, front compression stretch pocket and side stretch pockets provide plenty of accessible storage options for water bottles, snacks and other essentials
    • Tool loops and compression straps accommodate trekking poles or an ice axe
    • Internal hydration sleeve holds a reservoir (not included)

    Black Diamond Nitro Packis rated4.5out of5by4.
    Rated4out of5byfromcomfortable pack, odd hydration sleeveThis pack includes comfort features that you would normally hope for on larger packs...all while keeping the weight to a reasonable level. It even includes the reACTIV suspension system...a nice feature if you ever load this up. My only serious complaint is with the external access hydration sleeve. This is more of a deep pocket that is positioned between the back panel and the main compartment. It's a bit hard to access (you can barely fit your hand in it), and it hasn't any way of sealing out the rain. I've noticed this same clumsy external hydration sleeve design on some other packs. I hope it's a fashion that goes away...or is at least improved upon. Personally, I like having a simple hydration sleeve in the main compartment. When it's not used for a hydration pouch, it can be a useful divider pocket for a tablet or gloves or hat, etc. That aside, overall the pack has a clean design, more comfortable than others, especially in the 20 liter range. If Black Diamond simplified the hydration sleeve by bringing it back inside, I'd give it five stars.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat BackJust got this and ran this through a steep section of trails and I must say that I was quite impressed. I have owned many 1-2 day packs and this is my favorite as the suspension system and back panel is a dream (stable, weight balanced and breathable). I usually carry 2L of water and all my 10 essentials and while this does not take up 20L the option is still there for winter or higher assents. Even at half capacity the bag still distributes the weight nicely and keeps its shape. The pack is light for 20L compared to many others and I prefer the bulk loading area opposed to twenty different organization pockets. The down sides are that it is hard to stash poles in the gear loops at the back. I would like to see a mini daisy chain just for those awkward to carry items such as crampons. The reservoir pouch is separate from the main compartment which is nice BUT it is a bit hard to get the bladder in but this is not really a concern for me. Anyway I was quite impressed.

    Rated5out of5byfromLove this back packI took this back pack on vacation to Kauai. It was great for hiking and sight seeing day trips. It has one zippered compartment. One or two more inside would have been nice. Very good overall.

    Rated4out of5byfromExcellent PackHaving owned 40-odd packs over many decades, I think I know what a good internal frame suspension system should feel like. This one is the best, probably better than the suspension system in my somewhat larger Osprey pack. It fits certain of my needs almost perfectly: hiking, scrambling, cragging, and some alpine climbing. The only problem is that there is no good way to strap a pair of crampons on the front. It can be done but with some awkwardness. The problem could be solved with four strategically placed loops. Come on, BD, what would it cost per unit, 50 cents?
