    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 Traverse Trekking Poles - Pair is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid 4 stars. After purchasing these poles despite receiving advice in favor of more top-of-the-line models from an in-store employee as well as my fellow online commenters, I have been very satisfied with this set of poles. It was easy to adjust them to the correct length, and after a few miles of use I was getting the hang of using them comfortably. They held up very well on the 4 night backpacking trip up to Marmot Pass I took recently. I was able to really lean on them, and they held up my 185 lbs without any hint of slipping. The only negative I could give about these poles is that one of them makes a slightly annoying buzz or rattle when planted on the ground. The other one does not make it, and it's only one of them. It's not loud, but it's consistent, and I would prefer to have something that didn't make extraneous noises as I'm trekking through the beautiful natural spaces we all enjoy so much. Overall, these poles meet my needs, and I am hopeful that I will figure out a way to keep the one from rattling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations These are the first and only poles that I have ever hiked with, so my comparison to other brands and materials is limited. Living in Minnesota, most of our trails are fairly flat, so I've never needed or wanted poles. I decided to purchase these poles for an upcoming week long backpacking trip to the mountains in Wyoming. Using them on the training hikes that I've been doing, which include ascending and descending steep ski jump hills, these poles have proven themselves to me. The locks on the pole extensions hold tight, the straps are comfortable, and the poles are very sturdy. I weigh nearly 300 lbs, and the poles had no trouble holding strong when I put considerable weight on them. At half the cost of carbon fiber, and only 8.5 oz per pole, it was an easy decision to make, and one that I'm glad I did.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from worked great so far I bought these because I got a great deal on them compared to the price of other poles. I was leary of the twist locks instead of the lever type but so far they have worked perfectly. I need trekking poles to take some strain off of my knees especially when decending, these did just that and the grips didn't cause any blisters. Very comfortable all day and did their job.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from REI Trekking Poles Recently purchased these telescoping trekking poles from REI and was impressed with their performance. Took them on a 3 day backpacking trip to the Velma lakes in Desolation Wilderness. They were still a little long when telescoped down as far as they would go and strapped to my pack. But once they were off my pack and in use...i fell in love. Easy to telescope out to the desired height with just a few quick turns of the pole. Locking mechanism worked well. They proved to be very supportive on steep trails. Saved my knees on the steep downhills. Large handgrips were comfortable. I never felt like the poles were flimsy or in danger of collapsing. Overall, a durable and useful product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gonna get another pair ! Our first hiking poles, and these have been great. We've been sharing them, with each of us using one of the poles, but we've decided to get another pair. We will probably buy another pair of these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Thanks for these hiking poles, Dad" These hiking poles were an awesome addition to my sons gear when he hiked on the Superior Hiking Trail this summer. They helped him climb the steep ascents and aided greatly on the rocky and sometime slippery decents. The wrist straps are wide and comfortable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for light hikers Easy to use, nice for the casual hiker who might need a little stability. Grips with the straps are very nice even after a few hours of hiking. Only negative is that I couldn't fold it up and put it in my bag when I wasn't going up or down inclines.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Malfunctioned on first use I took these on a fifty-miler backpacking trip, and within the first day I noticed that the second extension on both poles wouldn't extend any further then six inches. I had checked them before I left and they were in perfect condition. On one of the poles I could see an internal piece that was working its way out. I also noticed that one of the poles rattled when I planted it in the ground.
