    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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from has plastic aftertaste!!! I bought two of these. I started with trying to rinse them out with dish shoap. did not work. water has plastic after taste which was very strong, I could smell it in the water. then I tried to clean it with a lot of baking soda (as directed by reliance) did not work. then I tried cleaning and leaving vinegar + water in it overnight. nope...still did not work. After two of trying to make these work, I finally gave up and returned them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good for me The vent leaked a little on mine. The valve worked just fine but it's new. If it does break I'll get a stainless ball valve or something for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Storage I've used this product on several car camping trips that lasted over a few weeks. I was so happy I bought this water container. It holds plenty of water. Conveniently, the spout comes off, flips around and can be reconnected to the container for easy storage. The handle is very strong and doesn't warp even when carrying the container when it's full. Great buy for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it should So far so good. Doesn't leak when closed. I am glad the vent hole is a screwed on cap. Makes transporting the container easy.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reliance jugs decay in sun quickly I have used these for years, but not because they are a good product. They are just like the others in that the plastic has no UV protection. I generally have to replace them every year. But usually find out I have a leak on a trip and end up with water spilling all over my gear. Some entrepreneur needs to make a UV resistant consumer grade 5gallon jug with spigot.
