    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 - 48 fl. oz. is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from construction flaw I like to backpack and needed something with a wide mouth to replace the bulky traditional Nalgenes. On a long backpacking trip 4 of us carried these 48 oz bottle and within 4-5 days all failed in the same way and area. They split at the top near the plastic top were it seals. The 32 oz did not have this issue. Unfortunately this lowered out water carrying ability by 1 1/2 liters of fluid per person.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaked after two days I bought two of these for a recent backpacking trip. We just carried them empty, rolled up in our packs and used them to hold water/mix drinks in camp. One of them leaked at the joint between the rigid top and the flexible bag after just two days. Of course it did this in the tent on a rainy day and dripped a pint of water, soaking my only dry pants before I noticed.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very light in weight, very fragile In general, Nalgene makes great products. This container is very light but is also very fragile. I've owned two of these and neither lasted more than a couple of days on the trail. By day 2 - 3 each developed a pin hole leak. I threw the fist container away - I'm going to return the second and try one more time. I do not have high hopes for the replacement being much better. These are VERY FRAGILE containers. Lastly, I do not think they hold the capacity advertised.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stood the Test of Time I have had five or six of these over the last fifteen years. They are very durable, but I did have one leak, after many years of rough use, (things wear out!). I like these canteens for a second bottle, that can be compressed and put in my pack when empty. I also like the wide-mouth, large capacity, to use as my night time urinal, so I don't have to "go out" when camped at eighteen thousand feet, (Caution: mark well with ink and tape, to make sure the wrong bottle isn't grabbed in the dark of night.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nalgene Wide-Mouth I am finally having to replace the one I have had for about 4 years. I have taken it on every hiking trip and backpacking trip. temps. down into the single digits with ice inside it. It has hung tough. I discovered early on with another one that you can't pour boiling water into these bottle because the plastic is layered and will de-laminate and then leak at the corners. These bottles are not as durable as a hard sided bottle, but they are really light, and the wide mouth is far better than a platypus for filling in streams. I will be replacing mine as soon as I can get to the store to pick one up. The extra capacity of the 48 oz. model is very useful. I measured my old one and it actually held more than 48 oz.
