    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 Wheely Beast Wheeled Duffel - 21"is rated4.5556out of5by18.
    Rated5out of5byfromFinally a carry-on I love!We bought two of these for ourselves and then two as a gift. For carry-on size they really hold a lot. The zippers are strong. The handle and wheels work well when rolling. Very sturdy, no wobbles. We also bought the 28" size for our longer trips. Glad we finally found luggage that is lightweight and sturdy!

    Rated5out of5byfromSolid productExtremely well made. Deceptive how much it will hold. I used to use hard shell travel bags but my new preference is "the beast"....professional traveler - 40 nights a year.

    Rated5out of5byfromExactly what I needed & wantedI've used this on a couple of air flights and several trips via car. In each case I've found it achieves that perfect balance of utility and comfort. It's large enough for 5-7 days of underwear, socks, shirts, an extra pair of pants and a sweater or two. Side pockets hold essential toiletries. The wide opening makes for easy packing, unpacking or quick access if needed. I haven't had any problems with the internal straps noted by another. I really like the main strap and fold over flap to help compress contents and secure the zippers. The handle and wheels are well designed and flawless so far. It's easy enough to lift and stow. I especially like its ease in stowing and ability to pack it in the SUV's cargo area with other gear.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat constructionI just recently started to take flights for travel. After the first couple trips, I swore that I would never again travel the airports without luggage that can roll. This bag is exactly what I was looking for. It stows perfectly into the airplane overhead compartments. Stitching, materials, and zippers are all very durable. The compression straps work very well at minimizing the volume of all my clothing items that typically take up the most space. My only dissapointment is that the metal bars of the handle that extends have some give. I have noticed that some high quality luggage bags have very sturdy bars, as they slide in, slide out, and lock into place. As long as the mechanism never fails, I won't ever have any problem with the bag. It would just be nice to not worry about the handle.

    Rated5out of5byfromTerrificI took this bag on a trip to Italy for 3 weeks. It was great for getting off and on trains. The back pocket is great for keeping track of hotel reservations, airline tickets etc. The handles are easy to grip and comfortable. The handle on the front makes it easy to lift the bag onto the hotel bed. The handle goes up in down perfectly. It's great for carrying up a lot of stairs in tight stairwells in buildings that do not have elevators. And ... it forces you to pack light. Terrific for crowded regional trains where everyone having a 5ft suitcase has to stand for an hour because there is no space for the luggage and they chose not to leave it alone. Plus, it crams into tight spaces as it doesn't have hard square corners. It was also easy getting around narrow sidewalks that have a lot of bumps, or otherwise, are not smooth.

    Rated4out of5byfromNot a back breaker!The extra handle on the front of the pack makes it easy to lift out of a vehicle without straining back muscles.

    Rated5out of5byfromThe Beast is the Best!I purchased this travel duffel for dual use as a carry-on bag and for weekend trips. So far I have used it for a weekend trip and am really satisfied with it! The inside pockets are great for packing small items or keeping things separated (like clean clothes from the dirty clothes at the end of a trip), the zippers are strong, and the outside handles are very durable. I feel comfortable using this bag on an upcoming trip for an extended stay in Tanzania.
