    REI Members get back an estimated $ 6.95 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    REI Alpine Gaitersis rated4.1667out of5by6.
    Rated2out of5byfromL/XL is NOT L/XL...The product looks quite solid and well made, but apparently I have the calves of a Greek god (probably not). I'm 5'11'' with a stocky build, they simply do not fit. I ordered online given I've had excellent luck with the REI brand, should have tested them locally first. I'll need to take these in to our local REI and test fit other options. Glad REI has an awesome exchange policy!

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat ValueSometimes I forget that REI brand products offer great quality for way better prices. I was about to buy gaiters made by OR (Outdoor Research). Then a member of the staff showed me the REI gaiters. Nearly identical in appearance, reviews and materials. Only way cheaper. Every once and a while I want something very specific that I see, like my Arc'tyrex hard shell or my Patagonia nano-puff jacket. But in most cases, I can find a great and cheaper product like this great gaiters. They have really helped me during this brutal winter we are having.

    Rated4out of5byfromPleasantly surprisedI wasn't convinced that these would stay in place but after several xc skiing outings I am quite happy with their performance. The bottom hook doesn't correspond to any place on my ski boots but since the gaiter stays in place, it is not a concern. Velcro is very strong. I look forward to trying them cutting wood.

    Rated5out of5byfromThe Best GaitersUsed these while climbing Mount Adams (NH) and Mount Madison in winter. Kept me completely dry in four foot snow drifts, ice, water, and 40mph winds. Fantastic product. Highly recommend getting water proof over water resistant especially if winter hiking on unpredictable trails.

    Rated5out of5byfromVery high quality and easy to put on.This is the first pair of gaiters I have used. I've always used snow pants or rain pants which never fully keep you dry when they ride up exposing your boot. These gaiters are super easy to put on and are very comfortable. I couldn't tell that I was even wearing them while snowshoeing for 2 hours today. They stayed in place and required no adjustments once put on. My fleece lined pants that I was wearing underneath were bone dry when I took off the gaiters. Unlike my snow pants the snow did not stick to them at all. The scuff guard is a nice touch especially when wearing snowshoes; just be sure to make sure you put them on with the scuff guard on the inside of the leg. All in all a great product that I wish I had purchased many years ago.
