    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.

    Perfect for one, cozy for two--Amazonas Barbados is the ideal hammock for a relaxing afternoon.

    • Comfortable in the house, on the balcony, in the garden or at your campsite
    • From the carefully choosen raw cotton to the hand-tied knots, this hammock is handcrafted in the Brazilian tradition
    • Cotton-wrapped hammock "eyes" on each end of hammock allows flexibility in choice of hanging system

    Brazilian hammocks are as large and comfortable as our beds! Amazonas hammocks hang loosely and deep in the center, designed for you to lie diagonally, "the Brazilian way." Your back stays straight and you can lie for hours -- sleeping, relaxing and dreaming in ultimate comfort. Note: hanging system sold separately--a flexible connection such as a carabiner clip, S hook or shackle should be used between the cotton hammock eye and the attachment point to avoid chafing.

    Imported.

    Byer Amazonas Barbados Hammock is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Byer Moskito Hammock First off the bat, my very favorite hammock is by far the Hennessy Hyperlight. However, THIS hammock weighs almost NOTHING! It's less than a pound with the mosquito net built in. I do question if it could really deal with a 250 pound load, and I believe the weight specs are very conservative with the Hennessy Hammocks. The Hennessy is by far the one if you expect to be using it for more than a week! I would never expect this flimsy Byer hammock to be the one for extended journeys. I would only trust the Hennessy for that, and the Hennessy is by far a better design, more comfortable, and superior in every way except that it WEIGHS more than this Byer hammock. BUT, for smaller, minimalist trips, this Byer is the very smallest and lightest, and still has the MANDATORY mosquito net, which is not only needed for bugs, I will never use a non-netted hammock again, as I have suffered a fall from a hammock before, and love the safety option of the mosquito net to keep you from falling out! In all my years of extremely aggressive snowboarding, I never suffered such injuries as I did falling out of my hammock 1 meter to the ground! It scares me even the thought of using a non-netted hammock because of that. ALWAYS use a headlamp or other source of light when getting in and out at night, and be MOST CAUTIOUS. I'm telling you, that sort of accident can be VERY bad! Overall, yes, I say buy the Hennessy, but this one is much lighter, and a lot cheaper also. The Hennessy is worth the money, but only if you HAVE it! The fact that this hammock is lighter has huge merits, and it might be your best choice on a minimalist mission that doesn't last for more than a week to 10 days. Also, I would not depend on it in severe weather. Another thing is that this hammock needs a rain fly, like the ENO hammock rain fly, and could use tree hugger straps to be a complete setup, and by that time, you are already close enough to a complete Hennessy set up that will last you 10 years that you might as well go with that! It was this hammock that I first used for camping, though, and I have had many trouble free nights in the Byer moskito hammock with an ENO rainfly and a sleeping bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive, strong and comfortable We set this up in the back yard near the sitting area and also brought it with us camping. It is so easy to set up, and I have never had the kids flip out of it, so the design seems to account for that. It is really comfortable and easy to set up. There are very cheap net type hammocks that are good for backpacker/space conscious needs, this isn't that hammock. And it shouldn't be left out indefinately because the cotton will weather and fade, but this was a good choice for tent camping families.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Complaints Great overall hammock. I plan on taking it everywhere. The cotton is soft but you can also feel the durability and strength in the materials. Great design as well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for relaxing This is a great hammock. I use it on a metal hammock frame that I got with a rope style hammock and it fits fine.
