    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.

    La Sportiva Ultra Raptor Trail-Running Shoes - Men's is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe Use these for backwoods trails in ohio and western PA. Love them. Feel very secure and stable with excellent grip. One of the best shoes I own. LaSportiva make great mountaineering boots and know their stuff on trails as well. I log between 40 to 50 miles a week on these shoes and they are wearing well. Just buy this shoe 1/2 size larger than you wear. LaSportiva makes a great product and as long as you know that anytime you purchase LaSportive, buy 1/2 size larger, and you'll never go wrong.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ultra-awesome I demoed these shoes last year (2102) and put over 300 race miles on one pair, including the Inside Trail Marin Ultra Challenge 50 mile, Angeles Crest 100 mile, and several shorter (usually Inside Trail 50k) races. I still can run gnarly trails in them (and still like to). I'm a neutral runner with normal arches, so arch and pronation aren't issues for me and can't comment. Not Gore-Tex obviously, but they drain well. Friction grip tread is great (same as the regular Raptors). Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best trail runners I've used This is by far the best trail running shoe I've used. In the past I've used La Sportiva Wildcats and Raptors, and Montrail Mountain Masochists and old ('07) Hardrocks. The old Hardrocks have been my gold standard- until now. The Ultra Raptors have very good underfoot and toe protection, feel stiffer than any of the others I've tried (except the Hardrocks), feel very nimble and light (much better than the Hardrocks in this respect), and have INCREDIBLE grip on any terrain. So much so, in fact, that I'll probably start using them for climbing approaches. The fit is roomy in the toe and snug in the heel, and has only an 8mm drop, so feels very stable and close to the ground.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Hiking Shoe Most of my experience with these shoes has been climbing 14ers. The thing I have been most happy with is the traction. These have done great on steep slopes and wet rock. The only downside is that the tred wares quickly. Still, these shoes are absolutely worth it for the time that they last.
