    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.

    by fromThe worst glases-- EVER Wow, these are the worst & most expensive glasses I have ever owned. One side was several MM lower than the other, making them crooked on my face. Their customer service was very nice & said to send them in & they would fix them, but I was shipping out before they would get back. the hinge broke off rather quick & I ended up glueing the sport strap on & using the clear lens to play racketball, [$]racketball glasses, glued open.

    by fromBeware I bought one pair and had to return them because the replacable frames were so difficult to put in. My son works for REI and said this was unusual. So I got a new pair (rei is great with returns) and now the lenses are uneven. They are flimsy and close crop one side of my face leaving a big indentation on my cheek. So Back to Rei and I won't buy native again.

    by fromThese glasses are flimsy, and will break I have have had these for several years, and am awaiting my third replacement. These glasses have poor construction and are easily broken. When they break, native won't hesitate to charge you the $30 for replacement which is up from the $20 that my warranty details stated. You will be charged the replacement fee even if it is due to poor construction and defective materials. They claim a lifetime warranty, but then charge you more than the glasses are worth every time you need a replacement. I love that they are polarized and have several lenses, however many other brands also offer that option for a better rate and with a better warranty policy. I would say that these would be overpriced at [$], however I would consider recommending them at that price.

    by fromThere are better sun glasses I do not write reviews often so this is not a usual thing for me. I bought a pair of Native Hardtops, they look nice and are light and comfortable BUT they are not very durable. The side pieces interchange so you can change them out with another set that is included that has a strap, neat idea but it also makes the attachment point weaker. The rubber ear pieces also came loose and one fell off. The rubber nose pieces are also easily removed and one of them fell off. You can buy replacement pieces for all of these parts but for [$] you would think they would be much more durable. I have Tifosi and Smith glasses, both cheaper that I have worn more often that have been more durable.

    by fromOK but a little pricey I have had a pair for 2 years, but they are about to get replaced. The major downside I have had with them is the temples. Both the normal temples and the elasticated temples have broken for me in the past. My wife also has a pair - she has the mirrored lens type and they are very prone to scratching.[$]

    by fromVersatile eyewear for every sport I'm rough on my equipment and have definitely taken these optics through their paces. I have had to replace the frames twice. Once because I stepped on them, and the other time because I smashed my face into a rock. Both times Native sent me a replacement pair within two weeks. There are only two flaws that I have found in my three years with the glasses. The hinge mechanism on the ear pieces were made of plastic. Native has already redesigned the piece to be a much sturdier metal hinge. Since the switch I have yet to have had any problems with breaking hinges, or rocks smashing into my face. The second fault that I have found is that when the sun approaches from the side of my head there is a glare on the inside of the lenses. I have recently figured out that it is actually a reflection of my eye off the back off the lens. Though it is only a minor annoyance and rarely affects my vision, it is something to think about. (my lenses are brown) Other than those two things, I must profess that I love my glasses. The warranty is great, the lenses are super tough, and now the frames is incredibly strong.

    by fromSolid choice! These glasses were purchased after a pair of Maui Jim's were lost in the ocean. I went looking for a similar style and I am very glad I chose the Native brand. They are much lighter than my old pair and I like the flexibility and weight of the frames. They practically bounce when dropped but are solid enough that there is no flex or movement when worn. The flexibility of the frame is awesome, however, when the face comes into contact with solid objects! My only caveat is the fact that the lenses seem like they could be a little larger vertically. Horizontally, they are perfect. Perhaps the draft I sometimes feel from the bottom of the lenses has less to do with the lenses than just my particular face shape. The fact that the glasses come with a second style of ear piece and two other shades of lenses is a bonus. Changing the lenses and the earpieces is extremely easy, as well. The lifetime warranty is also a plus. All in all, I prefer these to the lost Maui Jim's. As far as being glasses with multiple ear pieces and lenses, I think they compare very favorably to similar pairs of Oakleys that I have also owned. Conclusion: Definitely worth a try.

    by fromBest Glasses Best glasses, have had Ray bans, Oakley. These are the only glasses I use. They fit well underneath the helmet for motorcycling. The glasses are indestructible and the changeable lenses are great!
