    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.

    by fromdoes not work for active sports Although a good design for sitting outside, its use for activities such as running, rowing, paddle boarding is limited because its soft brim does not stay down to shade your face. A rigid brim would be much more useful.

    by fromWinner Winner Having no hair, I always need quality sun protection while spending long hours outdoors. This hat definitely provides that and more. Just recently put it thru it's paces while filming for 5 days in the Everglades - it put up with everything I could throw at it. The brim us sturdy, yet it's lightweight and can fold up enough to stick in a pocket or pack. The Omni- Wick sweatband sucks up quite a bit of moisture and the Omni- Freeze works well to keep me cool.

    by fromNo cape pouch From the description, one cannot tell whether the hat has a pocket into which one can roll up the cape. It does not -- and it's not comfortable or practical to tuck the cape up under the hat as that blocks the vents. Unless you're hiking west every morning and east every afternoon, the sun is not always going to be on your neck -- and when you can get away with not wearing the neck cape you don't want to wear it as the cape traps heat and interferes with the breeze cooling you off. That said, the cape is obviously valuable when the sun would otherwise be burning your neck, but with neither a mechanism to remove the cape nor tuck it into a pouch when not needed, this hat is impractical. Plus the brim immediately loses its shape, flopping down in such a way that it both interferes with your sight and is unsightly. I suspect one could fix this last issue with some starch, but there's no easy fix for the cape conundrum.

    by fromI didn't get sunburned It was over 95 F at Masada and very sunny, I didn't get sunburned -- that's good enough for me being from the land of temperate rain forests -- the pacific northwest. Aren't most of us at least wanne be avid adventurer in life. Why can't this form be incomplete -- probably the last one of these I do.
