    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.

    • Sculpted shoulder straps, canted hipbelt and short torso length all work together to offer women a comfortable fit
    • Updated shoulder straps and hipbelt provide a soft and ergonomic fit while stiff load-carrying sections preserve comfort under heavy weight
    • FreeFlow back panel features multiple ventilation channels so cool air can flow across your back
    • Spring steel frame transfers weight to the hipbelt and stabilizes the load from unwanted side-to-side movement; perimeter design allows the back panel to conform to your back
    • Panel-loading main compartment makes it easy to organize your gear; bottom zipper adds easy access
    • Hydration pocket can be accessed from the pack's exterior, allowing you quick access to refill your reservoir (sold separately) without digging into your pack
    • Small zippered pocket with soft lining provides an ideal spot for storing delicate items such as sunglasses or electronics
    • Innovative water-bottle pocket design allows a bottle to be stored in an easy-to-reach position, then rotated and locked in place for secure storage
    • Trekking pole attachments feature adjustable lower loops that capture the pole tips, while an elastic quick-clip securely fastens your poles to the pack
    • Simple, pulley-style side compression straps compress more of the bag than traditional single straps and with less extra weight and material than dual straps
    • Quick-release compression straps on the bottom provide an easy attachment point for sit pads or other bulky items
    • Lightweight lash points allow additional gear to be strapped to the front of the pack
    • The REI Lookout 40 pack features a thermoplastic elastomer bottom panel that provides waterproof durability to withstand years of heavy use

    REI Lookout 40 Pack - Women'sis rated4.2143out of5by14.
    Rated5out of5byfromawesome bag!I have been looking for months for a bag that I can use for day hiking, multi-day backpacking, as an around town/to work/cycling bag, AND as a carry-on for all of my belongings for short trips + longer term international travel. I didn't expect to find something that actually fit all of these requirements, but this bag did. It's small for a multi-day backpack, but I don't carry the tent and can otherwise fit ALL of my gear in this. The multiple pockets, zipper pulls, external hydration pocket... Everything is great, and the bag is super comfortable to wear. The hip pockets fit my iPhone 5 plus a snack (in each!). Great bag.

    Rated5out of5byfromThis is a great packI finally decided to replace my beloved Lowe Alpine daypack after 20 years, so this was a big decision for me. I wanted a another 40 L daypack, but one that also included a pouch for my hydration bag. This bag has been super comfy from the get-go, even with heavy-ish loads. The compartments are well-thought out and the bottom access to the main bag is great (though I do worry about the longevity of that particular zipper staying tightly closed -- I'll let you know in another 20 years!) I would have liked a shovel pocket (the similar Osprey pack has one, but it's also $50 more) and I wish at least one of the side mesh pockets were top loading because I'd rather use them for garbage than water bottles, but overall it's a pretty awesome bag at a very reasonable price. I'm happy with my purchase and anticipate many pleasant trail miles with this bag.

    Rated4out of5byfromPerfect all around hiking packFinally found a super comfortable day pack for hiking that can take me from season to season. There is enough space for a minimalist overnight or full day of snowshoeing.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat backpack! Great color!I've only used this backpack once since buying it, but I can tell that it's going to be an awesome backpack for what I need. It has lots of space in the main compartment to carry food and extra clothing for a long day trip. It also has an extra compartment for my hydration unit. I like that I can access the inside of the pack from the bottom without having to unpack everything. Lots of extra compartments to pack in small essentials. The biggie for me was the extra straps on the outside for attaching my hiking poles. It's nice to be able to safely put them somewhere when I don't need them on certain sections of a trail, and not worry about them poking holes in my hydration unit.

    Rated3out of5byfromGreat, for a little while.Used this for hiking. It was great for a while. Then the rubber bottom started to come apart, so I had to be really careful where I set it down. Other than that it was a great pack, but I did return it.

    Rated5out of5byfromPerfect for trip to MexicoWent on a 6 day trip to Mexico and this pack was perfect for it. I pack super light - clothes, brush, sun block, passport. and this was perfect for me. I loved all the straps on it to make this pack as compact as possible. I was on and off buses and airplanes and this bag fit perfectly in overhead compartments. I really liked the small side pocket on the front, it was perfect to keep all my hotel print outs, maps, and boarding passes and was very accessible. I didn't have a problem with the water bottle holder like another commenter said. I actually really liked it, it kept the bottle secure and it didn't fall out when I threw the bag around. I think my girlfriend was annoyed by how much I proclaimed that I loved this bag on the trip.

    Rated3out of5byfromI wish I'd looked closerI use this pack primarily for bicycle commuting. I wish I had noticed that the main compartment zipper only goes halfway down, so loading involves stuffing things down under the weight of whatever's in the outer pockets. This makes it difficult to get my folded work clothes in, and snags the laptop battery extension coming out.
