    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 Verglas Gaiters - Men'sis rated4.25out of5by4.
    Rated5out of5byfromlongtime OR fanWell-designed and fairly priced second pair of OR gaiters-first ones lasted 20 years. These are clean, simple, improved where it needed to be (under-foot string changed to tough flat buckle-strap; two lace hooks instead of one), and let alone where it worked (simple effective top squeeze lever buckle). Well cut taper fits leg/ankle bend, very little spare fabric. Looks clean, athletic, yet not flashy. I wear gaiters all winter in Montana.

    Rated5out of5byfromExcellent ProductI used these gaiters while guiding hunters for elk in Colorado. 2013 was the rainiest season on record and these gaiters did the job. They are easy to put on versus my old gaiters which have back zippers. They are truly waterproof and lightweight. I thought I might be concerned with noise made rubbing together while walking, but that was not a problem. Sizes seem to run just a tad big.

    Rated4out of5byfromSolid gaitersUsed on a recent trip in deep, wet snow. My boots and pants underneath stayed dry, from the outside and from the inside as well. I tend to run hot and I didn't have any breathability issue with them. Great set of gaiters.

    Rated3out of5byfromGood Gaiter, Questionable DurabilityI've used these gaiters for mountaineering, snoeshowing, and ice climbing. The fit seems dialed in, just like the OR Crocodiles. Breathability seems acceptable, never super breathable (not that the best Gore Tex even is), but my legs never felt particularly humid either. Overall, I was very happy with the performance of these gaiters. Durability is another story. The velcro stitching ripped during the first week, but not all the way through. It still holds and seems to have remained snow proof through, despite several more weeks of heavy use. The interior coating seems to be wearing as well. For now, it still performs well and it seems to be crampon-proof. I'll probably cash in on the warranty for a replacement at the end of the season and hope the next pair holds up better.
