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.

Overland Equipment Belvedere Shoulder Bag - Women'sis rated4.5out of5by4.
Rated3out of5byGear FreakfromBeautiful bag, not so great for leftiesI bought this bag at a local REI store yesterday, thinking I had found the perfect bag for traveling. When I got it home and tried it with all my stuff, I realized that the details of the design don't work well for me. I will be returning it.
Nice looking, love the lining material
Appears to be well-made
Holds everything, including iPad, raincoat, water bottle, umbrella
Lots of compartments.
For a lefty, twisting around to pull the main zipper from back to front is awkward. If I wear the bag 'backwards' to remedy this problem, the smaller pocket, with wallet, sunglasses, etc. is hard to access. Probably not a problem if you are right-handed and carry your bag on your left side.
The strap seems too long. When I have the strap adjusted to a comfortable length, the metal buckle is dangerously close to the bony part of my shoulder. (I am 5'9"). I also wish the strap had a shoulder pad. (If I was keeping the bag, I would buy a shoulder pad).
The longish,string zipper pull on the inside pocket gets tangled up in my pen and stylus when I try to pull them out. The small pocket for these items is directly under the string zipper pull. This is getting picky and would not be a deal-breaker on it's own, but it's still an annoyance.
The water bottle pocket will only hold a smaller diameter bottle. My shorter, fatter bottles don't fit. I would need to buy a water bottle just for this bag.

Rated5out of5bySmokeySnow21fromGreat for on the goI have only had the bag about a week, so I cannot speak to the quality of the bag overtime. However, this is an awesome bag. I am a new mom that is always on the go whether its hanging with the kid, shopping, at work, or on a trip. I have always liked messenger bags and crossbody practical bags. I bought a messenger bag for my daughters diaper bag. Overtime, it was just too much to take everything in the messenger bag. So this functions as my diaper bag and every day purse. It doesnt hold as much as a messenger bag, but even packed full of bottles, sunglasses, diapers, wallet, phone, kindle, etc it was so well designed that you dont feel the weight at all. The bag holds two water bottles and then has a spot inside for a bottle.
Great bag with pleanty of compartments and if you are looking for a good diaper bag that is stylish and looks like a purse.. This is your bag. I will be using this bag for vacations, shopping, etc. Enough room for what you need for you and your baby.

Rated5out of5byAimSlyfromPerfect Travel Bag!This is my third bag from Overland Outfitters. I loved my Donner bags, but they looked like a purse made out of backpack material. On vacation, you want a bag that can transition from sightseeing to a nice dinner date. The material is definitely an upgraded nylon (and I hope that they make more bags with this fabric).
I love that you can fit two bottles of water, one on either side of the bag, and that you can hardly see them. Also, there is a zippered pocket on the inside of the front zippered pouch, so I never had to worry about my money or passport falling out of the bag. The inside pouch (which zips shut) has a nice divider that keeps your iPad separate from a slightly larger catch-all compartment. And the snap-shut pocket on the back is great for guidebooks and maps.
I bought this primarily for vacation purposes, but I like it so much that I've been using it to commute to work and run errands on the weekend. I am contemplating buying a second one, just in case something happens to this one.
My only, very slight, suggestion would be to make the top zipper a double zipper so that it can close either way. But that's very minor.

Rated5out of5byLovethedacksfromI am in LOVEThis just arrived in the mail, so I haven't given it a thorough test drive. However, I am SO excited about it I just had to post right away.
Ladies, this the the perfect cross body bag if you want a bag big enough to hold your IPad (with a bulky cover), an umbrella and a bottle of water, or Two bottles of water and still enough space to hold a sweater, snack, wallet and other small items. It is very lightweight, the fabric is a very nice nylon, very soft and will mold to your body.
I am 5' 9" and it is the perfect everyday bag for me, but it might be too big for more petite gals. I plan to use it everyday, for the work commute, and for travel. If it performs well, I may order another because I think I have finally found the PERFECT bag!
