    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 Barrier Convertible Bike Jacket - Men'sis rated4.6667out of5by3.
    Rated4out of5byfromMy new favorite piece of gearNeeded a bright, lightweight jacket to knock the chill off early morning/late evening commutes to work and this jacket does just that. I'm 6'1" 170, long and lean with monkey arms. The medium fits really well, with enough sleeve length to cover any handlebar position. The shoulders and upper back are close fitting, but not too snug and there is no excess material flapping in the breeze. The jacket has proved effective in temps from the mid 30s to the low 50s. Forty degrees and above, base layer is a lightweight REI nylon short-sleeve t-shirt. Below that, it's a mid-weight polartec long-sleeve. I have yet to get cold while wearing the P.I. and that's with the front zipper up half way or less and the arm zippers at about half way. I am also wearing a medium sized messenger bag and have no doubt the straps are helping the warmth factor by keeping the jacket close to the body. Have yet to wear the jacket without the messenger bag or with the sleeves detached. Water resistance is better than expected. Heavy fog and light rain are easily handled with minimal penetration. Medium rain has left me wet on the inside, but much less so than expected. No experience yet in a solid downpour, but I think a good soaking would be the result. Just know the jacket isn't designed for rain. Have the yellow-greenish version and the color is obnoxiously effective. The main zipper is easily grasped with full fingered gloves, but the pocket zippers can be tough to dig out -- especially while riding. Only real nitpick is the Velcro sleeve tabs located under the arms. They constantly came unstuck from the tabs but stuck nicely to the black mesh liner. Two small pieces of Velcro stuck to the hooked sides and the problem is solved. This is the only thing keeping the five star rating at bay. Bottom line for me is the slim aerodynamic fit and effectiveness in a variety of temps makes this my new favorite piece of gear. If the P.I. got lost or stolen, I would quickly replace it with another.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Jacket!!!Used this jacket over a long sleeve thermal jersey and biked in 29 degrees. The jacket kept the wind and chill out. I am very impressed with the ability to breathe but totally cut the breeze.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat JacketWore the jacket for the first time yesterday. Ambient temperature was about 50 F. Very comfortable, and the detachable sleeves proved useful. With sleeves on and going downhill about 20-25 MPH, I was surprising comfortable because of the windproof construction. This was just what I was looking for when I bought it.
