    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.

    • Small diameter and dry finish keep the weight down, while its 30m length coils small for easy transport in a pack
    • Super Everdry™ treatment coats both sheath and core fibers to minimize water-absorption
    • Additional Perdur™ sheath fiber coating helps increase abrasion resistance up to 33%
    • Smooth, tightly braided sheath improves durability, reduces rope drag and allows easier handling
    • Edelweiss Discover 8mm x 30m Super Dry twin rope meets or exceeds UIAA tests for falls, impact force and elongation
    • Compact size and dynamic construction can be used singly for mountain and glacier travel as well as backcountry safety

    NOTE: Twin ropes are designed to be used in matching pairs (sizes, lengths and brands) and should be used parallel within a twin rope system. Using a mis-matched pair will cause undue wear on the ropes, exposing you to a higher risk of rope failure. They can be used singly in certain situations (like basic glacier climbs and traverses) where the risk of severe falls is absent

    by fromWow, horrible selection Where's the selection? there are no 60 or 70m half or twin ropes to chose from on the site. Although this rope is very useful in certain situations it is not for standard use at a crag. This means that they effectively have no selection for regular use half and twin ropes. REI has been getting worse and worse with the available gear on its site and in its stores. :(

    by fromexcellent alpine rope The reviewer with the low rating clearly doesn't understand the purpose of this rope. It is not a general, high angle, climbing rope - of which many are listed on the site. This is an excellent rope for low angle ice and snow traverse. Can also use to traverse a short scree field on a running belay.

    by fromShort rope, but good for general mountaineering This got a low rating from a previous reviewer, but I think they are confused as to its intended use. It clearly states in the description that its designed for glacier travel and traverse work. It is not intended for technical leads on high angle rock. Edelweiss makes many excellent ropes and has one for almost every need. The previous rating of one star is misleading as they are rating REI product availability and not the actual product. I am not associated with REI or Edelweiss in any way, so no biased review here. I do a lot of climbing, both technical big wall as well as winter mountaineering for over 30 years. I own many ropes from different manufactures for different climbing scenarios. I see this rope being a real plus on glacier traverses and steep snow and ice up to 50 deg. where falls are generally low impact and forces generated are well under the rated kilo-newtons. Particularly applicable for short belays when partners need to be within visible range and maybe occasionally simul-climbing with a running belay. The lighter weight, water and abrasion resistance, and dynamic stretch make it a good choice for the experienced mountaineer within the stated mountain environment.

    by fromNo issues Bought this rope for glacial travel for 2 and 3 person teams. Took it up Mt. Rainier in late September and it worked great. Due to its lightweight and 30m length it easy to pack. Color is bright enough to see well even in the darkest of nights on the mountian. It takes knots well, bites tight, but also unties easily. Comparing this to another 8mm rope I notice the sheath isnt as 'smooth' as the other rope...but this in no way made any difference while climbing or tying in. Buy with confidence.

    by fromGood Value This is a great smaller rope and a good value. Only nit pic is the listed weight of 42g/m appears inaccurate, as the rope I purchased is 47.5g/m.
