    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.

    Outdoor Research Foray Rain Jacket - Men's is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent jacket - simple and effective I have only positive things to say about the OR Foray jacket. I've owned it for a handful of months, and use it daily in all weather. I live in Seattle and commute to work by bike 5 days a week, year round, rain or shine. I haven't gotten wet once despite having spent more days riding in the rain than not. The storm flap over the zipper only has Velcro at the top and bottom, which was initially a cause of concern, but in use it has not been a problem. The zippers are quality, and well placed. Full-length under-arm zippers are a nice touch. It's also an extremely lightweight jacket, and packs well. The hood provides great coverage and doesn't restrict head movement the way many other hoods do. I also use this jacket as a shell when doing snow sports, and simply wear a liner underneath for warmth. It's a great combo. The pockets are big and allow easy access, even when wearing a backpack with a waist buckle. Although this is a very simple coat, perhaps a bit spartan, it is very well constructed. I actually like it for having such a simple and clean design. It feels like a genuinely high-quality product, and despite daily use in all weather conditions for months, my Foray still looks brand new. I think it will last for years, and since it's Gore-Tex, I anticipate it will have a longer lifespan than non-Gore-Tex rain jackets. I've owned many other rain jackets from Marmot, Columbia, etc., and that stuff will all break down and de-laminate after a few years (unless it's Gore-Tex). My only gripe with the OR Foray, and it is extremely minor, is that their sizing is a bit on the large side. I have an athletic build, 5'11"/150lbs, and even the small is a tad big on me. Not too big to be a problem, just not quite as trim as I'd prefer it to be. Of course, it becomes a non-issue when I throw a liner underneath it when heading out into winter weather. Even so, I'm 100% happy with this jacket, and would buy it again. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best price for a Goretex Fabric starts to look wet in heavier rain and the water fails to bead. But it still keeps you dry!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Lightweight, Great Vents Purchased this about a month ago and had to use it on a seven day trip in Shenandoah Nat'l Park in a downpour (an entire day of heavy rains). The pit vents that zip all the way down to the waist are great and allow you to wear your pack belt under the jacket without scrunching everything up. I still sweat somewhat in it, but that's unavoidable at times. The reason for a 4 vs a 5 star rating - the jacket is somewhat "stiff" and doesn't seem to loosen up even with use. Also, the outer shell does soak up the rain (as mentioned in other reviews) although the moisture doesn't get thru the inner layer of Gore-Tex. I do like it though and will be using it again in the future.
