    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 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase in a While Had to process a lot of wood for a winter backpacking trip in the rain and snow. Had to decide between the trusty old hatchet and picking up a saw. so glad i went with the saw. made getting through the 5-8 inch wide branches a breeze. much less dangerous than swinging a hatchet while cold, wet and tired. a must have!! i will never backpack or camp without it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leave your hatchet at home My first experience with this little saw was during a campout with friends. Between two grown men we were able to cut enough firewood for the weekend in less than 30 minutes. It's lightweight, durable, and well-made. For backpacking, I would recommend the smaller one - you will still be able to cut logs up to about 6 inches. The bonus is that this saw has many other home uses. The guy at the checkout told me he had one for about 20 years and that he uses it often. Well worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sawesome! I've used this saw for 3 years on countless camping, motorcycle, backpacking and Jeep trips. So much more efficient than a hand axe for cutting slightly larger branches into firewood. Light enough and easily pack able for a multi-night backpacking trip and sturdy enough to clear fallen branches off a jeep trail. I am almost never without this saw and its become an essential piece of my kit. Just don't lose the wing nut that holds it together or it will be like trying to saw with a wet noodle. Awesome saw. Get it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Saw! Great saw! Easily assembled, and collapses into a nice small package. Sawed through several logs quickly and effortlessly. Far more efficient than a hatchet! My only qualm is that it doesn't come with a case of any sort. When the saw is collapsed, there are several sharp/pointy edges that could easily wear through a pack or whatever you're carrying it in. Otherwise very happy with this saw!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk I bought this because it was light weight. That's the only good thing about it. When I put it together, I had to use tin snips to get the blade to tighten, but the upper support didn't stay in place so I had to modify the receiver for that too. When I went to use it to cut fire wood, it lasted about 10 minutes and the blade bent/kinked making it unusable. Go with something else!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent camp saw Bought one of these for my brother quite a few years ago and just recently picked one up for myself. Took it on a weekend camping trip and used it to make short work of our found firewood! Perhaps not the lightest tool around, but lighter than a hatchet, and far less dangerous when you're getting tired (no errant swings to sever your leg or something). Folds up nice, neat, and safe, and, from what my brother and others have said, remains sharp for quite a long time, even with minor rust spots along the blade. The Sven Saw is (relatively) light and reliable and I'm not sure why I waited so long to buy my own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the Job Done This saw had no trouble cutting down 2in trees. It ate them up in less than a minute. Very sharp, seems rugged, but the grip isn't the most comfortable. For the compactness, the capabilities are very high.
