    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 fromExcellent device This is a time tested device and is the best at what is designed for. If you do any rappelling this is absolutely the device to have. It works easily with single 11+mm ropes and any size double rope. With a single rope the rappel can get a little speedy so I recommend gloves if you plan on that. If you are going to be doing double rope rappels with high diameter rope or a very long one with lots of rope weight you may want to get a rescue 8 as it has a bigger opening. Otherwise, this is the rappelling device to have.

    by fromPerfect! Great device! I dont even use my ATC Guide anymore. I normally always rig this in the canyoneering style which makes rappelling very speedy and extremely smooth. I even rig it this way for belaying, which makes some people nervous but after I show them how effective it is they are good to go, just make sure to wear gloves!!
