    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.

    MSR Trail Lite Duo Coffee Press is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes A Lot of Coffee "Simply retrofit your existing pot lid..." they say. I guess it's simple if you have the reflexes of Jackie Chan and the strength of Dwane Johnston. You have to remove the existing rubber "plug" from the middle of your Trail Lite Duo lid and install the new one provided with the coffee press kit which has a hole in the middle. Fine, the instructions are well detailed and make it clear HOW to do this, but it is really really hard to push out that plug. Getting the new one in was a walk in the park in comparison. I boiled a liter of water in the pot as suggested, but even after it warmed up it took a surprising amount of force, simultaneously pushing hard with my thumb on the back and pulling with my other hand. I had to switch thumbs because I bruised my left thumb after failing a few times. Once you manage this herculean task, the coffee press seems great. Snug fit, solid feel, assembles and disassembles easily. This thing will make a LOT of coffee - easily 1.5L, which is enough for 4-6 people to have plenty. Perfect if you're hiking or camping with a group, although honestly you'll run into the limit of how much ground coffee you can reasonably pack far faster than you'll run into the limit for how much coffee you can make. Don't forget to use coarse ground coffee, as course as they can make it is almost good enough at my local grinder. The reason I didn't give this five stars: The Trail Lite Duo system is about 5mm too short to store the press. The shaft will fit fine between the two bowls, although not in one of the mugs unless you tilt it sideways in which case it takes up too much space. The press/screen/plunger itself however has nowhere to go, so you have to find room somewhere else in your pack. Really too bad, I wish this whole kit could travel as a unit all safely ensconced in its aluminum pot. We'll see if the plunger gets damaged riding around in my pack. Also, it would be great if they made it clear what other pieces of MSR gear this will work with. It looks like there are three different versions of the coffee press kit, presumably for the Trail Lite Duo, Reactor 1.7L, and Reactor 1L. I can't tell if I can use the same plunger with a Reactor 1.7L or not, which would be kind of handy since I'm thinking about getting one.
