    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromThe Fit is Poor I wear a 10.5 D USA shoe/ boot and my feet are an easy fit. Purchased them and found the boot very uncomfortable. Even with a reasonable indoor break-in period, the were short and tight. My other 10.5 D hiking boots purchased at REI fit just fine. I would recommend that you purchase at the REI store and not online unless you don't mind possibly returning them once or twice.

    by fromSole will disintegrate past 3 years!!! Best fitting/Feeling boot I've ever worn. But... Sole will disintegrate past 3 years!!! This is the 2nd time this has happened to me and it was the last! Get your act together ASOLO! There are boots out there that have lasted 10 years without this problem! Will NEVER buy this company's products again. Do an Google search on the issue....amazing how many times this has happened.

    by fromBad First experience When i first drove 87mi into CT to my nearest REI store . I wanted to be fitted for the boots. I The store was very helpfull and i ended getting a few other things I need. The bad part came on the third week of use last night I was getting out of the truck and glanced down at my boot the eyelet was pulled out right boot 2nd up on the left. It looks like there was no gromet/washer under the eyelet the hole was clean no scuff marks . I will be calling REI on monday to see what is up .Too bad it is a great boot other wise. I am very upset I tossed the box.

    by fromDisappointment Just came back from a 6 day backpack in the Sierras of California. This was the first use of these boots. After just a few days of hiking the leather on the toe was frayed and cut. There wasn't anything extreme about this hike other than I was covering rocky terrain on the John Muir Trail. At the end of the hike the cuts were deeper and the leather significantly chewed up. These boots should be designed with a rubber toe covering. They are very comfortable and secure in other important ways but just not durable for backpacking in rocky conditions. Lucky to be doing business with REI where I returned them on my first day back.

    by fromtakes the skin right off on the heel didn't work at all for me. Every time I started walking up hill, after about 10 - 20 minutes, the friction on the heel/(Achilles tendon region) would be so bad that the skin would start to break. Really unfortunate since in all other respects it was a good boot.

    by fromDon't stray far with these boots On a recent rim-to-rim trip at the Grand Canyon in June, these boots let me down when I needed them the most. Almost exactly 1/2 way between rims, both souls fell completely off the boot. Having only hiked 100 or so miles on these boots, I was shocked. Thanks to some parachord and duct tape, I was able to walk out of the canyon but the boots were trashed. I left them in the trash at the trailhead. I will never buy Asolo brand again.

    by fromNot the boot to buy I bought these with the intention of using them for a thru hike of the Colorado Trail. I found them to be uncomfortable at first but told myself they'd break in and be better. I wore them everywhere for 3 weeks and went on several 4-6 mile day hikes with them during this time. At the end of the 3 weeks I loaded up my gear with 40 pounds and went on a 12 mile day hike. I had on smartwool socks and silk liners, and I stopped and adjusted the laces several times during the hike. I ended up with blisters on both heels and feet hurting so bad I took them back the next day. I ordered the Zamberlan viox GTX (my REI doesn't stock them) and couldn't be happier. They feel great straight out of the box and I can't wait to get on the trail with them.
