    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.

    SmartWool Mountaineer Socks is rated 4.7143 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have Summit Sock! This sock coupled with a good liner (I tend to size my liners one size smaller so they don't bunch) is the perfect combination for a summit climb. Wore these on Mt Adams this past summer and my feet stayed perfectly warm in my old set of Raichle boots (didn't have enough to break in my new La Sportiva's). This is warm sock, and does a good job wicking away the moisture. Also they are bulky. So if you hike the year round in a medium to heavy hiking/backpacking sock, this sock is one-up from that. Don't try to cram you foot into a snug boot (I buy mine 1/2 size larger for this reason), it will defeat the purpose and keep your feet cold. They are spendy, but this will be the one and only pair of winter/mountaineering socks you'll ever need to own. Hike on!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So warm I forgot I had feet Great product! In terms of warmth, they hold heat all day. I spent a day on the slopes in Colorado with them and never had any issue. Usually, my feet get cold a few hours into any outdoor activity in the the winter, but with these I never noticed any creeping coldness. However, with the good comes the bad. The reason I gave them 4 stars was because they fit a bit large. While they are super warm the elastic band at the top that fits around the calf is the only part of the sock that seems to stay formed around your leg. Everything else fits loosely. Although there is this issue, the primary reason for purchasing this sock is warmth and under that criteria it passes. I would recommend this sock.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing Warmth I got these to keep my feet warm when unexpected 20 to 30 degree weather came in while using a +25 sleeping bag. Wearing two other pairs of socks underneath them, my toes still got cold. At 27-30 it was ok, but from 26 and under toes were cold in the morning. They're clearly nice socks otherwise and probably good for intended use, however in my situation they just didn't perform as I would have liked.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very thick I just recently graduated high school, and I'm headed to Maine in the fall for college, so I have been stocking up on warm clothes. I wanted some socks that were super thick to wear on the colder days, and when I have to wear my waders. These socks will do the job. They're super thick, but not so thick that they're too bulky. Because they're merino wool, they regulate temperature really well, even if they get wet. Overall, I'm very satisfied with them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sock I put that the size fits "large" only because I like the sock to fit tight so I always choose the next size down from what is recommended and go with that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love. love, love! We use these for around the house while in colder temperatures as well as for hiking and skiing! They are wonderful, keep you warm, dry and are not overly bulky. We use these socks even while camping in the winter in Florida as sometimes the overnight temperatures are pretty chilly! We would not use any other type of wool sock other than SmartWool!
