    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good not great Got this cause even though i only wanted a couple of the items it was cheaper to buy this package than buy what i wanted individually. Overall, it's nothing special but it gets the job done. Easier heating water, or whatever, up with this than nothing. Cheap, light weight, comes with a stuff sack. Nothing too special but also nothing you worry about being too rough with.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent first kit Good starter set. this was the first set I bought. though now my set has changed drastically. I would reccomend this to anyone who doesnt have a set yet. its great to learn on. I had a friend who dropped over 100 dollars on a set that he completely redid because after a few trips he realized he didnt need some things and he did need others. good set. great for the price. I still use it occasionally, but its heavy compared to what i use now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from first set of pots I've bought First time buying pots for cooking outdoors on a mountain stove. For the price this set was amazing! I bought this set with the 2 quart pot seperatly. It was tricky to use the pot grip, but it was so cold where I was at that I just used my mittens with the pot grip when picking up the pot. Great deal for the price and it worked out great for me and my friend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems good This seems like a nice little kit. I will be removing a few things and adding others to use for just myself. My only gripe is it was advertised with a strap that would hold it together, but it came with a mesh bag. I wanted a strap for my method to attach it to the outer of my pack to spare some room inside. I look forward to using this a lot.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2 Person Mess Kit The pot and pan are each a good size for one person. The handle works OK. The plate is too small to be of use for a main meal. I used it at lunch once. Then I put it away. There is no need to carry a dessert plate, which this is. Thereafter, I had to use the pan as a plate. The two plastic cups can be used for measuring, but I prefer to bring along a metal mug or a Sierra cup for drinking. The recommendation below is subject to those caveats since the pot in the one person kit is useless.
