    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.

    Sherpa Adventure Gear Chakra Rain Jacket - Women's is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great raincoat! This raincoat is exactly what I was looking for. The item photos do not do it justice. It is long enough to cover my long cardigans and it is totally waterproof. It is roomy enough to fit over another lightweight jacket, but not so roomy that it looks huge. It also rolls up compactly enough to throw a rubber band around it and toss in the daypack in case of bad weather.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sherpa Chakra Rain Jacket Bought this for my twenty-something daughter to use in Denver's climate. She needed something that looked more professional than a ski jacket for business use. Keeps off snow and rain, cuts the wind; and looks professional going in and out of meetings with international clients. Functional and stylish. Waited and bought during a sale. Great value!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not enough features for price It seems so odd to me that I can't find a longer length rain shell, so I gave this a try. It much more stylish than most technical type jackets but still has the breathable waterproof qualities (it is very like the marmot precip line). But for this price I would expect the hood to be more adjustable, and there is no chin guard (with this kind of material you could stand that for about 2 minutes) and there is no inside pocket or chest pocket. Also no pit zips, which isn't a deal breaker but would be a plus. The small is ok sized for a light mid layer (5'2. 115 lbs and 36B) but nothing more than that but I think the medium would be too big. It hits upper thigh, so it is is nice length that would not be restrictive on a hike but still covers enough . It is lightweight, but not particularly compressible. If there wasn't such a lack of serious rain jackets in a longer length I wouldn't even consider it at this price, but it does look dressier than most tech-based gear.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from another fitting disappointment Another disappointment with the fit of an REI raincoat. I recently returned the Kyoto trench because the lower arms were almost skin-tight. I thought I would have better luck with this Sherpa jacket. I'm glad they put a new picture on the website, because the one that was there when I ordered showed the color as purple, but when it arrived it was cranberry. By the way, the printed design on the hood and sleeves I thought was a bit much. Thinking I could maybe deal with the color, I tried on the coat. The sleeves were at least 4 inches past my fingertips when I held my arm at my side. This was a new one for me; usually garment sleeve length is too short. But the cuffs had velcro and could stay in place. However, when I zipped the coat, the fit of the bottom half was too snug (although it was loose enough on top). If this were a dress it would have been a well-tailored fit, but I want to be able to put at least a lightweight layer under a raincoat. I've been trying to find a waterproof, breathable raincoat that's long enough for everyday wear and doesn't shout "I wear this camping". No luck. So 2 REI raincoats, one with really skinny arms, another with too-snug hips. Each coat had the opposite problems of the other one, but neither was a good fit. Maybe your buyers need to have a conversation with your manufacturers. And to top it off, my members coupon for this year was wasted, because the Sherpa coat was back-ordered and now the coupon is expired.
