    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 fromSpend a little extra $ I got one of these and connected it to a zipper on my backpack and headed down the Grand Canyon. By the time I reached the bottom, the alcohol tube had busted and red stuff was everywhere. I guess it couldn't take the constant banging it took on my backpack. This is a really practical idea and hopefully I just received a faulty product.

    by fromHorribly innacurate at low temperatures Those on the rack at the store varied a bit in the temperature they showed. I picked the one in the middle. And it's fine at room temperature. Unfortunately, when it's cold the accuracy is horrible, e.g. 5 degrees low at 30 and 12 degrees low at zero.

    by fromHandy but broke I bought two of these in 2011--one for work and one for backpacking. The first one let me know how hot it really was at work--as there isn't air conditioning. The second we took on the Continental Divide Trail in Colorado. Both developed bubbles in the red part after a few days. It was helpful to have an estimated temp, but it was frustrating not to know the actual temp, especailly in trying to evaluate the effectiveness of our new sleeping bags, tent, etc. during the cold nights.

    by fromOK, but temperature is ballpark I have these on a few of my packs. It is easy to just leave them there. Very light weight. They are somewhat useful, but the lines are small and close together, so it is hard to get an exact temperature. If I squint I can get withing maybe 5 degrees. If that is useful to you, then they work great. Really nice for cold weather hiking and camping.

    by fromDecent product, even better service This is a very handy thing to have. I just clipped mine to the outside of my pack and it has worked wonderfully. The only gripe I have is that unless you're holding it at the perfect angle it is very difficult to read. Other than that, I'm quite happy.

    by fromHandy Little Item In 1983, REI gave these out as favors during the opening of the Orange County, CA store, and I've had one of these dangling off the zipper on my Kelty ever since. It's simple, light, useful and worth having. The wind-chill chart on the back is informative and it's always nice to have a relatively accurate measure of current temperature without weight penalty. I wouldn't use this as a zipper pull, and the plastic isn't beefy enough to take much of a beating, but if you can dangle it somewhere useful, you'll find it to be an "old reliable".

    by fromHandy I own two of these. I keep one on a zipper on my backpack and the other on my sleeping bag zipper. At a glance I can see what the Temp is. Has a wind chill chart on the back.
