    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    Nikwax Tent and Gear SolarProof Waterproofing Sprayis rated4.5out of5by2.
    Rated5out of5byfromBrings Your Rainfly Back to LifeI used this on my trusty old Sierra Designs Bedouin tent after years of sun & weather had stripped away the rainfly's water repellency. It really brought the water repellency back from the dead. I'm not sure about the UV blocking effectiveness, but I think it's cheap insurance to keep your expensive tent from being degraded by UV light. It's very easy to apply - just set up the tent w/ the fly on, hose it down to get the entire fly wet and then spray evenly & liberally. Wipe it down with a rag to ensure full coverage & to work the product into the nylon, then let it dry completely. Now you've got a rainfly that sheds water like new!

    Rated4out of5byfromHard to qualify effectivenessI can't vouch for the effectiveness of this product's UV protection, as I have only used it on my tent this summer (Marmot Limelight 3). I figure it would be a good preventative measure and I haven't reapplied a DWR coating other than the factory original. I did notice that water beaded up on the fly more readily than it has in the past.
