    Item # 698567

    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.

    CycleAware Heads Up Eyewear Mirror is rated 2.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Only 1 out of 10 reviews had much good to say about this piece of junk. REI needs to offer something that actually works and lasts more than the two minutes it takes to break this thing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keep looking someplace else This is a follow-up review to one I posted in August 2012. After my first Heads Up mirror broke, I did find out that Cycle Aware had a warranty on the mirror. I called them and they sent a replacement arm (free). As I was pressing the old mirror into the new arm, one of the supports in the ball-and-socket that holds the mirror steady broke off but it held the mirror okay until I later dropped the mirror and more ball-and-socket supports broke off thus rendering the whole thing useless. At that point, I e-mailed the company with my concerns and frustration and they kindly sent me an entirely new mirror (free). That was in December 2012 and now it's August 2103. After maybe 50-60 uses, the prong on the arm has broken off again. It's just no longer worth the hassle or the expense. Rather than buy a couple of these each year, I'm going to go find something else that I only have to buy ONCE.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from been using for >10yrs, work great I'm a competitive sculler and have been using these for >10 years to see where I'm going (scullers sit facing astern). The mirror is small enough that it doesn't block your vision, and simply rotating one's head broadens the angle of view when needed. Two caveats: (1) Glasses frames with flat temple pieces are required. The mounting arm will spin on round wire temple pieces. And the mounting tabs will probably break off if you try to mash it onto thick oval-section temple pieces. I have no problems with the flat metal temple pieces on my distance glasses (Versace frames) or the flat plastic temple pieces on my sunglasses (Ray Ban #3237, not the "Aviator"). (2) Store the unit in the clear plastic case to avoid scratching the mirror, which slightly degrades the image. Complaints of fragility by other reviewers are a mystery to me, because I have found these units to be very durable. I go through only 1-2 units a year, mainly because the mirrors eventually scratch and I want the best image I can get. I can't remember ever breaking the arm, and mounting tabs very rarely break off for me (none broke last season). Occasionally I drop a Heads Up! in the water (they sink). But the main reason I need to order more is that I give my spare units away to other scullers who want to try using a mirror! Previously I ordered them through the manufacturer and am very pleased to find that REI sells them. I don't use a mirror when cycling - I rely on ears and turning my head - so I can't comment on their utility for cycling.
