    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.

    Rated5out of5byfromThe BEST large daypack you can buyI did an extensive review all of the large day packs on the market. The Kelty is the best in terms of high quality construction and features.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat for climbingI got this pack for my son when his old pack was too worn. I was looking for a climbing pack as he is a climber. The main problem with most packs are that they top load or have a bottom opening. My son needs to see his gear to decide what to use. His old pack required pulling almost everything out but this pack opens almost all the way to the bottom allowing easy access to gear. If you are looking for a pack to take cragging we would recommend this pack over any other.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat so farI use it every day and I love how light it is. Owned the preceding version of this model and it had better zippers and a better handle at the top. I've only had it a few weeks but the transition from the old version's been seamless. I fill it up so I get my money's worth.

    Rated4out of5byfromGood PackFor the money this is a good all around pack. Used it for 2 week trip around Philippines. 13 flights and 5 boat rides and it held up perfectly. Wish it opened up the entire way but it is still nice being able to access almost the entire pack. Needs to have metal loops on the zippers so you can lock the pack for travel. The pack is also a little on the wide side with the side pouches filled. If you are carrying your bags on the flight this is the perfect size.

    Rated5out of5byfromGo To PackThis is my go to pack for every occasion for five years. If it does not fit in the Redwing, I leave it at home. Fifty liters sustains me for three days hiking or five days on the road. I traded out a 70 liter UL pack that did not have as much support for the comfort and adjustability of the Redwing. This added a little over a pound with the added benefit of accessibility (front loading), pockets (fits all my rain gear in half a pocket), tent pole pockets (awesome), and attachment points (pad), which extend the capacity of the pack. I have travelled across the continent with this pack and easily put it in the overhead, strapping coat on top to quickly get from gate to gate and down the aisle of the plane.

    Rated5out of5byfromLove this packTook this pack on an overnight hike and loved it. I love the "external" pockets since they don't intrude on the space of the main compartment. My old fashioned rectangle sleeping bag was too big to fit in the pack so I tied it to the top using the loop fasteners. That was another thing I loved about the pack. It felt great to hike with and I'd definitely buy one again. The only reason I returned it is I found the Deuter I wanted for the same price. If the Kelty had the Deuter's air gap at the small of my back, I would have kept the Kelty.
