    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.

    Rated4out of5byfromSo warm I forgot I had feetGreat 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.

    Rated5out of5byfromWorth Every PennyI use these socks on a daily basis in the fall, winter, and spring. After wearing the first pair over and over, I decided that I should get more before I wear out the first pair. I own 3 pairs to cycle through the week. They are cushy, very comfortable, and keep your feet warm and dry. After a long hike with a heavy pack, it's my legs that are hurting, not my feet. I prefer these socks over every other pair of socks I have tried, besides the SmartWool Hiking socks for the summer. A+

    Rated3out of5byfromDisappointing WarmthI 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.

    Rated5out of5byfromMust 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!

    Rated5out of5byfromVery good sockThese socks are great for hiking and especially for wildland firefighting. They are very comfortable to wear even in warm weather like southern California during the summer months. Great moisture wicking. The only complaint in the price but you get what you pay for. I really like these and plan to maybe get more when my current socks wear out.

    Rated5out of5byfromSuper SocksGreat socks, keep my feet warm and comfy all day. Good for winter mountaineering. I tried the REI version, which definitely cannot keep up with the smartwools in terms of fit and comfort / warmth.
