    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.

    Osprey Daylite Daypackis rated4.5882out of5by34.
    Rated5out of5byfromGreat size, great dealI got this to replace my old trusty REI brand daypack that has lasted me 8 years and is not available anymore. This will be used as my daypack while working on trails all summer with a conservation corps. It seems to be the perfect size for this purpose - will hold tightly rolled up rain gear, books, and other miscellaneous gear in the main pocket, and could fit my lunch and a few small personals in the small, front one. And this bag is so lightweight (1 lb!). I'll be attaching it to my large pack containing all of my camping gear for the treks into sites. I really like that the bladder pocket is separate from the main compartment (it's outside the bag, behind the foam backing) which leaves the inside back pocket to use for papers and other similar things you wouldn't want just stuffed in with the rest. I am worried about the mesh side pockets not holding things well, as reviewed, but I plan on just putting bandanas and other lightweight, smaller items inside them. No need to put a water bottle in it with the bladder compartment. The thinness and waterproofness of the material worried me, but I have poured some water on the outside, rubbed it in, let it sit, and nothing leaked through. It feels well-knit so I think it will hold up to rocks and branches fairly well if it's taken care of.

    Rated5out of5byfromThe Best of The Best of The Best.I love this pack. I brought it to Costa Rica to hike on volcanoes and it handled everything like a champ. I threw it around, scuffed it on gravel, rocks, and tree trunks, along with being pushed into waterfall with me when my family and I finally reached our halfway point on a hike. This pack never became uncomfortable, the straps are thin, cushioned, and form fitting. The curve of the pack aligns perfectly with your spine, so there is no bouncing around while jogging up a trail. The outside hydration pocket is incredible too. It separates your water bladder from the rest of your stuff. Just in case something ever happens to the water reservoir, it won't get your items inside the pack wet. This pack goes everywhere with me now, including my bike commute to work and back. I also take this pack to class with me when I have take the 40 minute trip up to my college. As long as you are a light packer with school supplies, this pack is perfect. Everyone should have a Daylite!

    Rated5out of5byfromPerfect hiking daypackBought this pack prior to my adventure trip to Panama and didn't have time to research but it was perfect. Light weight with good padding, adjustable straps with waist and chest straps helped it fit like a glove. Good compartments and bottle mesh side holders made it convenient to organize for hikes, long bike rides and beach trips. It held up in the mist of the rainforest and the hot sand on the beach. Highly recommend. Not ultralight, but I hiked up steep terrain with light rock climbing with plenty of snacks and water and barely knew it was there!

    Rated4out of5byfromDecent DaybagOriginally, I was looking for a simple, well-constructed bag that would be great for everyday use -- on the trail, going to the gym, airplane carry on. This is exactly what I got! However, after using this bag for a few days, I realized that it isn't what I was looking for -- I'd rather spend an extra $20-30 for a bag with more bells & whistles (ie. these straps have VERY light padding and this pack is sorta water resistant -- okay in light rain/mist but gets wet in harder rain). Overall, this is a very nice and simple bag that is swell for quick trips on the trail or to the gym -- exactly what I was looking for but turns out, not really what I really wanted.

    Rated4out of5byfromLived up to expectationsWorks well for securing personal documents and small electronics. Easy to carry/lightweight.

    Rated3out of5byfromGood Value for the PriceI use this as a day pack, going to the office, the gym, and errands on bicycle. It has a good capacity, and a small outside pouch for personal items separate from the main compartment which is very useful for wallet, keys, glasses etc. It would be nice to have a laced bungee cord or a zippered pocket on the strap but for the price, you can't expect too many extra features. It is a well made basic pack.

    Rated5out of5byfromA hiker's best friendThis daypack was the perfect size; it carries everything I need with room left over without being too big or too small. The slot for a hydration pack is so convenient. The straps were too long no matter how I adjusted them but that was the only flaw. It's not necessarily water resistant but everything inside stayed dry while I hiked through a downpour.
