    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.

    Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool Bike Shorts - Men's is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the long road ahead This is my third pair of these shorts. I got the first two pairs last year because they were a great price at REI. I had no idea that they would be as good as they are. Up until that point, I had been using Body Geometry shorts which had started to get a thin in the padding from use. I had to bump them down to shorter rides (50 miles or less). I needed something that would keep me comfortable beyond 50 miles and the Pearl Izumi's fit the bill. They have a great fit, and are snug in all the right places. The materials used are wonderful and actually do feel like that keep you cooler on those hot rides. The few rainy rides I've taken with them also so that they will keep the moisture away from your skin quite well, while still remaining breathable. The best part about these shorts is that the chamois will not only reamain comfortable for a century ride, they have remained that way for a solid year of use and are just as comfortable as the day I bought them....unlike my previous shorts that were more expensive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Bike Shorts I have a couple pairs of these bike shorts that I use for summer road cycling. When these are not on sale I feel they are slightly overpriced, but if you can grab them on sale or with a 20% off coupon do it. They are good for medium distance rides (50ish miles), fit fairly well and do not chafe. They are out of their element for longer rides (75+ miles), because they do not provide the superior fit and support that bibs provide. Bottom Line: If you compare these to a pair of high end Giordana bibs these will lose every time, but they are good for what they are and if you can grab them for under $100 they are a bargain.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from ya, so what The entire Pearl Izumi line for cycling shorts fit rather odd. Normally I would fit into a small if I'm 1.6m and 57kg (no real curves and generally petit). The small size was super small yet once I tried the medium, that clearly was too big. For this price, it would be nice to see the leg openings to be more grippy and conform to the leg nicely. Buying from Castelli did solve this sizing problem (a small Velocissimo did fight nicely).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shorts, worth the $$ Soft and comfortable on the skin with good padding. Lose some comfort over time if you don't wash immediately after every use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pair of Shorts These are great shorts to wear for early season rides when your sitting parts are still tender from the winter layoff. The pads are ample without making you feel like you're wearing a diaper. Strong compression in the thighs requires a little effort to pull them on, but they feel great on the bike.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money! Wear these mountain biking regularly and love them. They keep me comfortable and breathable. Great for longer rides.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool and Comfortable You can never go wrong with Pearl Izumi riding shorts. I am an experienced rider and I have depended on Pearl Izumi shorts to keep me comfortable and dry during a long ride. I recommend these shorts as the #1 piece of equipment to have on even if it is for a short and casual ride!
