    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.

    Ortlieb Front Roller Panniersis rated4.75out of5by4.
    Rated5out of5byfromQuality ProductI needed to counter weigh the trailer that I was pulling. These panniers are very well made for the long haul. I plan to use these on my future trips. The only negative that I would have about them would be, the size. They're almost too small. But then again, I do have a B.O.B Yak to pack more stuff into.

    Rated5out of5byfromWhy did I wait to buy these?I had another brand of panniers. I had purchased them over 15 years ago. They were nominally water resistant when I got them, with sort of a spray applied kind of waterproofing. At the time, I was looking for panniers that looked a bit like mini-backpacking packs, and these had external pockets. They also had a hook and bungie attachment method. Having spent some money on them, I wanted to get my use out of them. Fast forward to today, I realized that I was always shoving things into thick plastic bags before putting them in my panniers. Also, the hook and bungie system was resulting in a lot of panniers falling off. I went to look at these Ortliebs and I was immediately sold. The anchoring system is fully adjustable and gives a positive connection over your racks top bar. Even if they become unhooked below, they won't pop off your bike. I am able to mount these on the front rack on either of my bikes and the rear rack on the one. I know Ortlieb makes bigger panniers, but I find that, beyond a certain point, more bag space for me just means more junk I don't need. These would not work with racks that don't have a tubular top support (e.g., Blackburn Lowrider). They work just fine with my Jannd low-rider type front rack. They've held up well in my testing period and I am very pleased with my purchase.

    Rated4out of5byfromWould buy againI have the Back Roller Classics & have been using them every day for a couple of years. Love the waterproof & durability. The inside pockets are huge. Bought the Front Rollers to go on a decent camping trip from Eugene, Or to Blue River, Or. All four bags are great for light touring or commuting. Suggest something bigger for longer rides.

    Rated5out of5byfromLove.I've been using these almost daily for about three years. They are still perfect, just perfect - and I don't baby them. The design of the rack clips is ingenious: I never tire of marveling at how precisely and effortlessly they work. I teach so they carry books and papers - small but heavy loads. Weekends, they haul groceries, kid's stuff, you name it. The top closure has in fact been perfectly waterproof all this time. The reflective patches are really reflective. What else can I say? I hesitate sometimes to drop this much $$ on something that seems like a luxury, but these bags - they're worth it.
