    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.

    Maui Jim Ho'okipa Polarized Sunglasses - Men's is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not great for sports These glasses can be great if you know what to expect, but since they are advertised as part of the Maui Jim sport line I had to give them a mediocre rating. I suppose a lot of these problems could be a matter of poor fit, but from my experience with other rimless glasses I think these are just inherit design issues. They offer fairly good sun protection although (like most MJs) they don't quite go low enough on my face. When looking towards the sun there can be significant glare appearing as vertical stripes down the lens. Not quite as bad as my Smtihs but nowhere near the quality of Kaenons. They also let in a ton of wind, which swirls around the inside of the lenses and is extremely uncomfortable even when biking (and I don't bike particularly fast). The inside of the lenses also get dirty and smudged strangely easily and are difficult to clean with the included microfiber pouch. Never had this problem with other lenses. That said, the lenses (when clean) are very clear for polycarbonates and the colors looks great (a little "cool" as opposed to the warmer colors of kaenons, just a matter of preference). They are also incredibly comfortable which was almost enough to convince me to keep these glasses despite their other issues. For driving or low velocity activities with little wind these would be perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of glasses Very good pair of glasses. Very comfortable and the lens quality is outstanding. They help your eyes relax in strong sunlight. They are in the Maui Jim sports collection, but I have only been using them for casual use. I'm not sure how well they would do in a more active setting as my Oakleys have been serving that purpose quite well and do feel more rugged than these MJs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic glasses I'm confused about some of the negative comments. I have been wearing these glasses for more than 10 years- they are better than anything else I have tried. They are my primary mountaineering/glacier glasses. Like any lightweight sunglasses, of course you can't sit on them or otherwise beat them up- if you take reasonable care of them they will last years. I have used them for everything from driving around town to climbing at over 6000 meters in Bolivia. They provide plenty of coverage and sun protection. I used them in New Zealand when the ozone hole was large (i.e. huge UV levels)- no issues whatsoever. They probably won't fit everybody (I have a large head), but that's to be expected. Highly recommended.
