    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 fromReinforces maps Gave it a 4 as I have not tested it in the rain, or with purchased maps. Works great on maps I downloaded (for free) from the USGS website or from my GPS software. I printed them on a color laser printer (I would not try it with ink jet printed maps). Then I cut and pasted them together, the sealer also reinforces the seams. It also didn't smear the writing in pencil prior to sealing it. Don't skimp on the paper, use premium quality laser printer paper (28lb or higher). Cheap paper tends to wrinkle up, saturates quickly and stuck to the posterboard I was using to protect my table. Even the high quality paper stuck to the poster board a little, especially if I took too long before hanging it up. Drape it over a line vice using clothes pins, the paper tends to stick to them.

    by fromBest way to add life to your maps I have been using this product on my 7.5 minute USGS maps for over a decade, and I promise you it will add life to your maps. Here are a few tips for those of you who use USGS maps/GPS for navigation. First, I recommend drawing your UTM grid lines before applying the map seal. I use a piece of cardboard to keep from getting the sealant on my table during application. You will also want to use paper weights keep the map from rolling when you apply the sealant. I still recommend storing your map in a ziplock bag when on the trail. While the map seal will waterproof your map, I would not suggest exposing your map to an all out downpoor with or without the sealant. I usually fold the map so my trail is visible from inside the bag.
