    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.

    Coghlan's Nylon Tent Repair Kit is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Campground Tent Repair, Read Carefully This kit is targeted at Campground Tents (fiberglass poles) rather than backpacking tents, though all but the pole repair ferrules can work for either. The ferrules are steal, and dippled. That is great if you have a fiberglass pole (typical on a less expensive campground tent) break near the end. You can pull off the old ferrule (saw and/or pliers), and tape or glue on one of these. Since the ferrules are steal, and dippled in the middle (to facilitate fiberglass end pole repair), they are not designed for aluminum backpack pole sets, I would purchase another solution for aluminum poled tents. The ripstop nylon adhesive backed patch worked great on a tent (and on a backpack) for repair. It is NOT waterproof (e.g. it is NOT polyurethane coated, PUL), so it is not really suitable for rainfly repair (use duct tape for a field repair on a rainfly). If you use the ripstop here for rainfly repair, you will also need to buy some polyurethane tent floor repair coating (which REI also sells) to waterproof the patch ripstop. Shockcord length of 45" only useful for perhaps cutting and extending and existing cord, or cutting and splicing. My one note on the rip-stop nylon w/ adhesive backing is that to be useful, you really need to have a pair of scissors. (Look in your first aid kit in the field). Mesh screen material and the nylon thread together are fine. Seam seal is fine. If you need rainfly repair, buy a different kit (such as a large air matress repair kit, which are air-proof and hence waterproof). This kit also does not come with a large chunk of seam tape. That would be useful. It basically is what it says. They even note the ferrule restrictions in the writeup, but that is far less obvious in the store.
