    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.

    Royal Robbins Backcountry Shorts - Women'sis rated4.7143out of5by7.
    Rated4out of5byfromGreat travel shortPurchased for recent 2 week trip to Iberia. Needed lightweight (only taking one backpack), quick drying (for washing in the sink), and comfortable for day long adventures. They were perfect.

    Rated5out of5byfromWorth the moneyI'm money conscience and spending that much money on a pair of shorts made me think twice. That said it was one of the best buys I made this summer. They fit and look great, so you not only can wear them hiking and traveling but for a BBQ with friends. The one down side is nothing too bulky will fit comfortably in the pockets.

    Rated5out of5byfromLove These Shorts~I was not sure about the color, but really like it now. I have found lots to go with them. It has been hot this summer and this material has been great outdoors!

    Rated5out of5byfromMy Favorite ShortsThis is the second time I've bought these shorts in the same soapstone color. I went down a size and I still wanted to wear them. Mainly I wear them just casually around town or on vacation, but they are also good for rigorous outdoor activities. They fit well , look good and are very comfortable. The quality is great. I would buy them again, and probably should before they quit making them!

    Rated5out of5byfromThe perfect outdoor shortsI bought two pairs of these shorts for a long outdoor vacation. I wore them biking, hiking and camping. They held up well and dried quickly when gotten wet. My only complaint is that the different colors were not sized exactly the same. The black pair were slightly smaller.

    Rated5out of5byfromLove these shorts!The Royal Robbins Backcountry shorts are my favorite casual wear/travel shorts by far! I'm a huge fan of all the pockets on the shorts! I like that they are still able to retain a feminine appearance with all the pockets unlike cargo shorts. That said, if you tend to like putting a lot in your pockets you might want to size up for a looser fit as it makes them a bit more comfortable. I probably own about 5 pairs of these shorts in varying colors. They have worn well, although I do see a bit of pilling in some areas of high friction from a purse rubbing against them, etc. The fabric breathes well even in hot and humid climates like Hawaii. I don't recall what the care instructions are for the shorts, but I put a couple of my early pairs in the dryer and noticed the waist shrank a little, so I now wash them in cold water and hang dry them.
