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 fromDromLite 2 Liter gives water an odor! This water-bottle is light-weight and very compact when empty; however, it has a bulky mouth, and a bad petroleum-like odor that makes your water smell too.

by fromReally good bag for water I have had this bag for several months and have had great luck with it. Another reviewer said the mouth of the bag is big but in fact it is exactly the right size to screw on the bottom of the MSR water filters so you can pump water directly into the bag with no danger of contamination. It also has a small outflow valve which is great for food prep. You can remove the little cap and have higher flow when you need it. When it was brand new it did have a residual plastic odor so I just filled the bag with water and some lemon and let it sit over night. Washed it out with soap and water the next day and dried it out and the smell was gone. I really recommend this bag to go with your water purifier.

by fromNever going back to bottles! I LOVE using my DromLite with the drinking hose while hiking. Since I don't have to either remove my pack or have someone retrieve my water for me, I drink much more water and feel much better at the end of the day. (I no longer engage in "guilty hydration" late in the day and end up getting up repeatedly for late-night potty runs!) Although I wouldn't recommend treating the DromLite the way I have treated Lexan bottles in the past, I have by no means babied mine and have had no problems with scrapes or punctures. I purchased the spigot attachment and like to hang the DromLite from a tree trunk at camp and call it "indoor plumbing." I find it endlessly more versatile than a hard-sided bottle. The only thing I would change would be to add some sort of a cap for the bite valve so I don't have to worry about dragging it through the dirt (or worse) when I set my pack down. I'm embarrassed to admit how often I have put on my pack, forgetting to check the condition of my bite valve, and been greeted with a mouthful of dust when I took my first drink.

by fromsuper tough I was camping on block island for a weekend and i rode my bike to the nearest source of water from camp down a very rocky road. on my way back, i happened to drop the bag in front of me (because i was holding it in my hand while riding a bike on a bumpy dirt road) and ran it over with rear tire. needless to say i'm still very impressed that i ran this thing over (all 310 pounds of me) and it held my water just fine. no problems.

by fromVery tough water bladder I have several of the Dromedary and DromLite water bladders in various sizes. They are the only bladders I use anymore. They provide a good balance between the durability of a hard water container and the packable size of a bladder. I spend several months out of the year riding and packing in the mountains on extended trips. I am admittedly rough on gear.. From being tossed in a pickup bed with gear piled on top, stepped on by horses, dropped, dragged, poked, and just generally abused, I've only broken 2 bladders over the years since I started using them. One broke while leading a horse through boulders. The horse jumped down a ledge and the shock of 2 liters of water (4 lbs) against the grommet tore the grommet top off. The bladder was intact, but no longer able to be hung from the saddle. The second ruptured while riding through heavy brush and the bladder was impaled on a sharp tree limb. I can't fault the bladder here as there was enough force to puncture even some hard containers. The MSR Dromedary and DromLite series of water bladders are the best bladders I have used. Other brands have good qualities as well, but these are the only bladders that I've tried that are tough enough to stand up to abuse and last multiple seasons. The only modification I would like to see if/when there is an upgrade, is reinforcement on the grommets and for the DromLite series to have grommets around the sides of the bladder the same as the Dromedary to allow for more attachment points.
