    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.

    Nalgene Wide-Mouth Cantene - 96 fl. oz. is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not great I bought this model for the wide mouth and handle for ease of carrying water once at camp. It worked well for a year and then sprung a leak. I carried this canteen collapsed in my pack during the day. I would only carry water in it if I were in a dry area or I was going to dry camp. Most of the time it remained folded while hiking. Because of the wide mouth it just does not fold up well. The way it is designed to fold up it what causes it to fail eventually. My unit developed a leak on the side that soaked the inside of my pack. Fortunately my critical gear was in dry sacks so no real harm. I am sure other canteens can fail the same way but I think that this model is more susceptible to failure than others.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good idea, poor execution I bought two of these for a backpack trip on arid Catalina Island after my Platypus 2L bottles developed pinhole leaks after about 10 years and I was unable to find replacements. I've had several Nalgene products in the past (hard water bottle and a hydration bladder) that were good quality, so I trusted the brand. Unfortunately, both leaked immediately (I think from the seam around the screw top). I immediately returned both bottles after the trip. I'm glad to see the Platypus 2L bottles are available again.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice... until it broke We took several of these full of water camping since there was no water source on the island. I set these (full) on the bench at the campsite. Unfortunately there was a slight tilt to the bench which caused one of the canteens to flop over onto the grassy ground, upon which it sprang a leak in its side. Overall, great concept, but needs to be more stable and durable if it's for regular outdoor use where things are seldom perfectly level.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well I'm a bike camper, and I wanted a water carrier that would pack small and light in my panniers or trailer, so that when I got to a campsite, I could use it to efficiently carry and store water. So far, it's been great. It apears to have strong seams and it doesn't impart a bad taste to the water. I think it would also work as a container for water that you have to filter or purify. I haven't traveled with water in it, so I can't comment on how it handles being jarred around when it's full.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job... Good product, holds a lot of water. Completely water tight... If you screw the cap tight. It's the perfect size to strap on a backpack. I mean, it does it's job, no complaints.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has Worked Well For Me I began using the Nalgene 96 oz Canteen about 5 years ago as a replacement for the multiple Platypus Water Tank (both 4L and 6L) that I had used over the previous decade. I used these containers frequently on multi-day river trips, car camping adventures in both developed and dispersed camping, a few backpack packing trips, and extensive use in a fire lookout where we must bring all our own water. Over time, I became dissatisfied with the Platypus, especially the newer ones, due to difficulty/unreliability of the ziplock. So......I began looking for a reliable replacement and found the Nalgene 96 oz Canteen. I own and use 5 of them, sometimes all at once (fire lookout) and so far I'm quite pleased. The wide mouth allows for easy filling and pouring, and also works well for loading the Canteen with chipped ice. I have had no leaks. The Canteens are not quite as stable when full as I would like. They have a fairly small base and sometimes spontaneously fall over when full, but that is a fairly ray's problem to work around. Although the Canteen only holds 3 Liters compared to the 4 and 6 Liter capacity of the Platypus zip containers, they are much, much less expensive and are a better buy on a per Liter basis. In regard to the leaks reported by other users, it seems like many of them are backpackers who repeatedly roll up the empty Canteen for storage. Maybe this results in small tears to the plastic. I have not experienced this, but I've only used the rolled-up Canteen a half dozen times while backpacking. Perhaps a good solution is to store the empty Canteen in the pack flat and unrolled, perhaps in the hydration pocket.
