    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.

    Vasque St. Elias GTX Hiking Boots - Men'sis rated4.8out of5by10.
    Rated5out of5byfromGood Hiking Trail BootI bought these Vasque boots a month ago and so far they seem to be good sturdy. I like hiking over very tough trails. I need the strong but flexible light boot to take me all the way to the end. The Vasque St. Elias GTX seems to be a good one to try.

    Rated5out of5byfromI like the example, "These make hiking even easierNo break-in time required. I tried them in the store, then ordered them in wide. Totally happy, they look good too. How does one buy a boot on the promise that it will feel good after you "break it in". Where, for heavens sake? In your living room? on the stairs?

    Rated4out of5byfromI like themThese are good boots, I do allot of backpacking and these have been holding up really well. I love leather boots because they just last so much longer than anything else and if you know how to care for them they will last for a long time. The only problem I've had with them is they are very narrow for my foot, I have their wide size and they were still too narrow to fit two pairs of socks in. I ended up being able to stretch the leather which thankfully you can do with leather and now they fit really well, but it took a long to do...but I still really like them.

    Rated5out of5byfromExcellent BootsMy new favorite boots! They fit great and have excellent traction. I had bought my wife a similar pair of Vasque's about a year ago and all I ever heard when she wore them was how much she loved them. So I decided to get myself a pair and I love them too!

    Rated4out of5byfromHiking BootsExcellent traction, in ice and snow, so far I have been very happy just wish for extra wide widths so I can wear more socks.

    Rated5out of5byfromVasque=BestI bought the Vasque brand because my father has had a pair since 1985. Yes, 28 years and still fully functional. I am an avid AT backpacker and these boots are meant exactly for that. You instantly feel the quality and craftsmanship when you put these bad boys on. I have been using them everyday and I cannot be anymore content with my purchase. You put up the money and you get the quality when it comes to the Vasque brand. Plain and simple.

    Rated5out of5byfromOne Of The BestHaving served in the Marine Corps and as someone who goes backpacking/hiking regularly I have walked in some of the worst and best boots, and I am happy to say that I can count these among the best. I purchased these in October 2013 and spent the past three months breaking them in on quite a number of day hikes. With each hike I was thoroughly pleased with the feel of the boots (They are quite comfortable) and the lack of any friction points that might cause blistering. I wore these as my everyday boots for a week but found that in Florida they were a little to warm but I imagine in colder climates would be quite comfortable. And finally I wore these boots just this past week for a long multi-day backpack outing. They stayed comfortable even with a heavy load strapped to my back and provided good support for my left ankle which has on occasion given out on me without proper support. They also held up perfectly through both the woodland (good traction) and marshes (good waterproofing) I trekked through. As far as I'm concerned these have earned their five star rating.
