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.

by fromBest Headlight I've Ever Owned Have owned for three years and has never let me down. Very useful during Katrina when we had no power for five days. So light weight, you forget you have it on.

by fromThis is the mother of all flashlights! I have owned this light for years and it is hands down the best flashlight I have ever used. It is so good that I have three of them (one in the car, one in my pack and one for the house). I was concerned when I made the transition to a headlamp but this is so comfortable to wear that I don't even notice. Being hands free with such a bright light is addictive. It has reached the point where I refuse to use any other flashlight. I really like the fact that you can adjust the brightness (one bulb for reading a book or map and all eight for illuminating the entire campsite or trail). Even one bulb is powerful enough to actually hike some trails - all eight really makes it feel like it's daytime. This truly is the brightest flood light I have seen. Add to that its durability and water resistance and it really is perfect.

by frombomb proof headlight I'm an Army medic and an avid cyclist. This light has been in continuous use for nearly 5 years both in the field and mounted on my bike helmet. Its been through many scrapes with me and has never let me down. This light is truly awesome. It excels as a patient examination light because of it's wide distortion free beam and high light output. I have used this light for everything from cycle commuting, setting up field hospitals in the dark, to designating a landing site for incoming medevac helicopters. This light converted my entire battalion to using head lights for patient care, and non tactical night opps due to the increased safety margin from increased visibility not only for the wearer but also for heavy equipment operators working in close proximity to pedestrians at night. People wearing headlights are much easier to spot and in addition the vehicle operator can see which direction they are looking / moving.

by fromThe Good, Bad, Ugly This is one that you should have the only negative is size ,it uses a battery pack of 3AA,size does matter!! this light blows all AAA types out the door.and it has about half the battery life.30/70 as to 75/140 or so they say.It weighs about 2 oz more than AAA type.I set the head lamp on 5 led on low setting option it died at 83 hours,better than most AAA types.Use this light for emergency's,Tail gate Camping or as I do for Back Packing.

by fromhighly recommended although this headlamp is used for camping, i also used it for fishing at night on the beach shores in San Clemente (pitch black), would probably got lost without it. also catching crawfish in the rivers and streams of Greensville up north. not only it's a killer value,it's also the brightest for the price and reliability.

by fromBest lamp Ive ever owned I used this light recently for a weekend trip to the Sylvania Wilderness area and could not have been more impressed. Even in cooler temps where my previous headlamps have needed at least one battery replacement in the same duration, this lamp maintained a consistent brightness. I had no trouble seeing in any conditions,and the fact that it doesn't over heat on your forehead is an added comfort. The only downside is the weight, but compared to the performance, and cost of replacement batteries (3 AA vs. an expensive speciatly battery), this is really a non-issue.

by fromVery versatile lamp. Very much enjoy the lamp. Great for biking and walking, really brightens the path. Also great for use around the house, general chores frees up both hands. I especially use it when working on my stereo, all those cables get confusing. All around great lamp to have.
