    REI Members get back an estimated 10% 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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    Justin Lichter, a.k.a. Trauma, has gained valuable know-how in over 35,000 mi. of hiking. Trail Tested is a comprehensive guide about hiking and backpacking with information that you won’t find anywhere else. Whether you’re just starting to hike and camp in the backcountry, head out regularly, or are about to set out on an epic 6-month hike, this book is packed with priceless information that’s helpful to ultralight gram-counters and novices alike.

    Vibrant images from Trauma’s treks will entice all readers to get out and enjoy the backcountry, and other pictures and graphics help them understand why getting the right gear and skills are integral to becoming better hikers. His range of knowledge is expansive, including helping you select the best gear for your treks, such as backpacks, sleeping bags, tents and ultralight shelters. The book explains low-impact camping and hiking, campsite selection, hiking with dogs, navigating the backcountry, winter camping, weather forecasting and thru-hiking. It covers advanced skills like creating hiking routes, cross-country hiking, fording dangerous rivers and other obstacles, and making a hike into a multisport adventure by adding in climbing or white-water rafting. Trauma also shares stories from his adventures in the United States and around the world.

    Made in USA.
