    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.

    Danner Crater Rim GTX Hiking Boots - Men'sis rated4.4out of5by5.
    Rated5out of5byfromAmazingI took these on a two day hike right out of the box. Your supposed to break them in but I had no problems out of them. I got the Wides and I beilive that was the best choice seeing how some say the boot runs narrow. They are extremly comfortable and perfectly water proof. I love these boots!

    Rated3out of5byfromI like American made goods.I've owned these boots for almost a month and have already put over 100 miles on them. Both heels are showing signs of wear as the hiking here in Sitka is quite rocky. My biggest complaint about these boots is the lacing system. It has 6 eyelets and only 1 hook at the top. It's very hard to get them snug at the ankle. If Danner would change the lacing system I would keep these in a heartbeat. As presently configured I will probably bring them back in to REI when I'm in Anchorage in January 2014.

    Rated5out of5byfromThese are excellent boots!These boots are worth the price tag. they have superior construction, thick vibram soles, and an overall bombproof feel. my feet feel GREAT in them. Personally I scorn the reviewer(s) who write of this--or any--boot's inferiority because it didn't fit that person's feet. You'll see this sort of comment in nearly every worthwhile boot out there, whether it be Asolo, Lowa, etc. It seems people don't know some boots run narrower than others. Please note that: 1) not all boots are made for the same width of human foot, and 2) Danner boots are made for wider feet. Occasionally you'll see reviews from customers who wrote that the boot didn't fit right, and they give it a poor rating when actually the boot construction and performance merits a higher rating. The people at REI are extremely helpful and knowledgeable about matching feet and boot widths--you should ask. I'm an overweight trucker and I use these for exercise and general mobility. The ankle support is phenomenal--even going downhill, my feet don't slip forward inside the boot--and the assurance these boots give of every step is pure comfort. These Danner Crater Rim boots took a month of casual usage to break them in, because the uppers are stiff and made of thicker leather than boots that run at $150. Those less-expensive boots break in faster, yet they also wear out quicker, usually because they're paired with a less-expensive sole. Not these boots! Again, they're very well made (on the inside too!) with high-quality materials, and I am so very glad for the chance to rave about them.

    Rated5out of5byfromCrater Rim seems like a bomb proof boot.I use this boot for hiking on rough trails and scrambling in the mountains. They have excellent support of feet and ankles. They work well for me on both steep uphill or downhill. As a bonus the traction is very good. I haven't had them long enough to attest to their durability, but am quite confident they are going to last a long, long time. Now is not the right season but I am sure they would work well with crampons or snow shoes.

    Rated4out of5byfromA little narrow for meThis boot appeared to be very well made but just did not fit my foot. I have never needed a wide shoe in the past but actually ended up buying a wide boot other than this one.
