    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.

    Black Diamond Alpine Bod Climbing Harnessis rated4.0out of5by2.
    Rated4out of5byfromGeneral mountaineeringSuper good harness for its specific use. It wasn't designed for sport climbing, where you'll be falling much, big wall climbing where you'll be hanging much, or basically anything else that would be nice in a comfy harness. In fact, it's uncomfortable without puffy winter clothing. It's designed for mountain climbing like glacier travel and alpine ice. The lack of belay loop is meant to allow taking it on and off with crampons on. Normal harnesses snag on the crampon teeth. It packs small and doesn't weigh much. If mountain climbing is your thing, this should work great, unless you want something with a little more function (then get the Black Diamond Couloir). If rock climbing is your thing, look elsewhere. Overall, I have a few harnesses each designed for their specific use. For Rainier, Adams, or other such mountains, this is my go to harness.

    Rated4out of5byfromSimple And EffectiveNo bells or whistles. Just a simple harness that is easy to use and I trust my life with it. No complaints here. If you are looking for something affordable for casual use and don't need a lot of extras, this is a fantastic harness.
