    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 fromNot worth getting up for... When I got this, I was looking forward to having real drip coffee at camp, without much cleanup. The concept is sound, but there's a problem. The first time I used it, I didn't get too aggressive with the coffee grounds, and so it brewed fairly quickly...but the cup of coffee that resulted was quite weak. I then refilled it with more coffee, this time adding a bit more. The coffee that resulted was right on target, but it took so long (over 20 minutes) for that one cup to drip through it that it was half-cold before it was even done. I didn't even bring it back home, throwing it out instead along with the other trash from the campsite. There's a french-press adapter out there for a standard Nalgene bottle, and I've just bought one of those...it's a much better alternative.

    by fromalmost Worthless I actually am just using it at home, but I have found it difficult to clean and only makes for a tiny cup of coffee. It takes forever to brew and by the time the coffee has filtered through it is lukewarm.

    by fromBacially unusable This is just a half step way from being completely unusable. I did not try this with store-bought pre-ground regular coffee, but if you grind your coffee at home with the typical blade grinder this product won't work at all. The reason is that even if you grind the coffee coarse there will still be some fine particles that will instantly clog the tiny filter and NO coffee will get through. The problem was obvious when I thought about it. The filter area on this coffee maker is a small fraction of that found on any other single cup product you will find save for espresso makers which mechanically force the water through. In this case gravity just won't do it. I made the mistake of taking this on a trip without trying it at home first. I was very rudely surprised. We ended up making coffee by dumping ground coffee directly into boiled water and using the top section of the coffee maker as a coarse filter. This thing is going in the trash. Frankly I am mystified that other reviewers thought that this was an acceptable product.

    by fromDoes not make a good cup of coffee I made the mistake of taking this on a backpacking trip without using it at home first. I used the coffee that I had on-hand, which was ground for a cone style filter (fine grind). It completely clogged up this coffee maker. I gave it a second chance and took it along on a camping trip. I made a pot of coffee in my Coleman coffee maker (basket style, medium grind). Then I made a cup of coffee using this coffee maker. The coffee from the Coleman was rich and flavorful. The coffee from this coffee maker was weak and watery. The problem with the design is that it doesn't allow water a lot of contact volume with the coffee grounds. After the taste comparison, I threw this coffee maker in the trash.

    by fromDidn't like Bought this coffee maker to take on a car camping trip. Thank goodness I tried it out at home first since it didn't work like I was hoping. First: unbearably slow drip Second: cold coffee by the time it was finished brewing Third: because it took so long to brew, not handy for multiple cups of coffee After reading the reviews, I now understand that this coffee brewer works best with course ground coffee and when grounds are not packed full in compartment. I grind my coffee ahead of time so having to purchase special grinds just for this camping brewer vs. my drip coffee maker at home is too much.

    by fromNah. Pass! I got this because I thought it would brew two cups of coffee - albeit...two separate cups of coffee. 1) it brews so slowly that before the 1st cup was done...the coffee was already getting cold. 2) when the second cup was being brewed, I had to spend the next 20 minutes watching my husband enjoy his cup of coffee. Also - because I brewed two cups, I tore through coffee grounds quickly. I'm glad I bought it so that I could tell the rest of you to NOT buy this.

    by fromDoes Not Work Should have tried the filter BEFORE arriving at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Ended up filtering coffee through a bandanna (not ideal unless you like sweat-flavored coffee).
