    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.

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

    by fromGreat taste, not much effect Tasted GREAT but I didn't notice much improvement in muscle fatigue and energy after using it. To be fair, I've only tried the Hammer gel once. However, given that it's more expensive than Clif and Powergel, and I've noticed more + effects with these others, I probably wouldn't buy this again.

    by fromGive them a try Months ago I went out and bought two of almost every brand of gel I could find in the store. With long training runs and a lot of races I get to use gels fairly often. I recommend that you personally try a few different brands and flavors to find what works best for you. My taste buds and stomach say one thing, but yours say something completely different. Hammer Gels where the first gel for me to try. I like them a lot, not too sweet, not too tart. They are thicker than GU’s but thinner than Clif Shots. They seem to sit a little heavier on my stomach and need a little more water than others. I really like hammer gels, it doesn’t feel really gritty or sugary on your teeth when you use for a while. I just wish that the creative packaging (the hammer shape) didn’t get caught on everything.

    by fromThese are the best ones so far This helped me get through the last 2 miles of my long run, just when I wanted to quit. I don't like sugary sweet gels but this one tasted pretty good and it was just like doing a shot of espresso - except in gel form. I didn't think I'd find a gel that I liked, but I went back to REI and bought a bunch more, all in Espresso flavor.

    by fromWorks so well you can get over the taste I used these at the halfway point on the bike in a few olympic distance tris last year and they really give me a great sustained boost that lasted all the way through the run. For whatever reason, the Hammer Gels had a staying power that some other gels/chews that I've tried did not. Personally, I hate the taste of these things (hence the 4 stars), but performance wise they're the best I've used.

    by fromAwesome taste and great energy boost These gels are great in taste and provide a great energy boost. Took 6 of these packs on a century bike ride and kept me going nicely. If you're unsure of which flavors to try, I would recommend getting the sampler, which provides a flavor of each along with the powdered drinks.

    by fromGreat for on the slopes! It's so easy to toss a few packets of gel in your pockets on the way to the hill. Eat one on the lift when you're feeling a little hungry and you won't have to stop at the lodge for overpriced junk food!
