    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.

    by fromGreat Product! Man, these matches have gotten really bad reviews... Personally, I love them. The matches themselves are bulky, and have a tendency not to light on the first strike, (which is why I gave it a 4/5) but are impossible to put out with wind and rain. I put this brand to the test against Coghlans's and a 2 other brands of storm proof matches, and let me say these are fantastic. First off they are SOOO windproof that even after a 30 mph gust, and me blowing on them (till I turned blue :p ) they kept burning... And hot! As for the water test these babies burn even after being submerged, and in the rain! Great product!

    by fromGood Matches These are the matches I use while backpacking. Note that they are not waterproof. They are not easy to light, but I do not find them hard to light. They are not strike anywhere. I keep them in a waterproof container with a striker inside the waterproof container.

    by fromEasy to light? Not quite! I was disappointed to see that REI seemed to have discontinued their brand of water/wind proof matches. They did not light the first time, but they are much easier to light then the UCO matches. I used both strikers on the UCO. The one on the box and the striker strip inside and both took at least four to five strikes before light. Very disappointed in this product.
