    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 4 out of 5 by from Here's the story on the fraying. This is an otherwise perfect shirt. Fit, feel, durability, etc. I'm on my second and am about to go buy a third (not a replacement, I just want more colors.) But: if you tumble-dry it, the threads along the rim of the cuff will eventually break, and the cuff will fray, in a way that's not easily repaired. The first one I bought suffered this fate before I realized what was going on. The thing is, this shirt dries like lightning. Hang it on a hanger straight out of the wash, and put everything else in the dryer, and the shirt will be dry first. Under all other circumstances so far the shirt is as durable as any. It feels great to the touch, which is most important to me, almost like lightweight suede. It sheds stains and smells, dries quickly, and packs small. I haven't noticed any undue fading or color shifts beyond what I'd expect from normal use. So just don't put it in the dryer and all is well. To RR: Put some reinforcement on the cuff - That's the only spot I've noticed the fraying problem - and change the care tag to specify hang-dry only. Problem doubly solved.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from KEEP OUT OF THE DRYER!!!!!!!! My second FEEDBACK(ie.followup)Love the shirt, I think I have one in every colored offered. The first few did fray at the ends of the sleeves and base of the shirt. I washed them on gentle in a laundry bag, and tumble dry low. One other customer comment mentioned," NOT PUTTING THE SHIRTS IN THE DRYER," made all the difference on the fraying. I have to say I think that is the fix to make this a 5star product. THE SHIRT HAS TO BE HUNG TO DRY,. After afew months of this care my remaining shirts are still in great shape!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 50% failure rate,3 of 6 frayed I like the shirts (I own 6), they are perfect for the Hot/Humid South Florida weather! But, I cannot recommend them to anybody since 3 of my 6 shirts frayed beyond being able to wear after 3-4 washings. I used a seperate laundry bag,mild soap, gentle cycle, and tumbled dry low.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A wardrobe staple The rap on this shirt is that it frays at the edges after quite a few washings even though I always hang it to dry. Still one of my favorite shirts for work or casual wear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy & looks good I mostly wear this shirt, unbuttoned, around town paired with a color coordinated t-shirt. It is very comfortable and stylish. It has become my favorite casual shirt. I carry a concealed weapon and it is long enough keep it concealed.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frays quickly I have been buying these shirts and hoping they were improved for years. I am afraid I am a slow learner. The hems begin to fray after just a few washings. I never took them back to REI because I didn't think anybody would believe me. It is a beautiful shirt that wears out almost overnight. I have moved on to the much more durable REI brand name shirts.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from FFFRAY!!! Comfortable, understated and stylish. Yes, they fray, and fray, and fray. I bought these several times over (would I ever learn?) and none lasted more than 2 seasons. I still look at these everytime I visited the REI website but will buy no more. What is going on, Royal Robbins?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from XL is really XL++ Nowhere is it mentioned on the REI website, but it is clearly marked on the tag once the shirt arrives. The XL is "XL Relaxed", which means it's bigger than XL. I presumed that because I have similar style Royal Robbins shirts from a couple years ago that I could order the XL again and be happy. Not so.
