    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 Light II GTX Hiking Boots - Men'sis rated4.6667out of5by3.
    Rated5out of5byfromTough and comfortableI've had the same pair of Danner Light II since 1997. They've seen countless hundreds of miles of day hikes, backpacking trips and hunting trips all over Arizona and New Mexico. After all those years and miles, I finally wore the sole down. I sent them back to Danner for rework and they are good as new, but well broken in. I expect to get another 15-20 years out of this pair. I've had them so long, I thought it would be good for shoppers to hear my opinion. You can't go wrong with Danner boots.

    Rated4out of5byfromStable, Comfortable, Not PerfectThese boots appealed to me as a field worker in a variety of adverse New England environments because they appeared durable and highly stable. Overbuilt sole is an old style that wouldn't be applicable to hiking good trails, but I wear them everyday in terrain that varies from abandoned urban lots to rocky outcroppings on steep slopes. The stability and traction is what I desired and expected. I wore them many miles in the city and they were very comfortable. After a painful break-in with sole pain, ankle swelling, and a lot of clicking from the heel/ankle area (which went away) the boots became comfortable. I had to exchange for a wide and now the fit is perfect - no toe slamming or sliding. They did well on a Grand Canyon hike, but the boots were heavy. These boots are not waterproof. The leather is nubuck and it absorbs water. I have not treated them yet but will need to soon because in wet grass or any sort of precipitation the leather becomes saturated and takes some time to dry. Now, after wearing them for three months, everyday, they are no longer waterproof to wet grass and my toes get wet. In very wet conditions, the boot interior becomes very moist. They are not what I had hoped for, but I'm not sure any company makes a boot that stands up to the conditions and repetitive abuse my job demands. Next time I just wont spend as much.

    Rated5out of5byfromVery nice bootsVery nice boots. I spent a lot of time trying to find just the right boots for everything but sub-zero wear, as I have a pair of winter pacs. These boots run medium width as claimed so for me that is perfect. Very light boots too. Wasn't sure if I would be able to wear them for a full day of hiking, but I'm sure they'll be perfect. Slightly darker than in the picture so I actually like them better! Love them so far and I anticipate that being the case for the next 15 years.
