    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 sunglasses - Love Natives I use these daily when I commute and for all sorts of outdoor activities. The polarization is great, the nose pads help the sunglasses fit well on those of us that lack a signficant nose bridge. This is my second pair of Native sunglasses and I would definately recommend them. They're lightweight and the styling is athletic. If you're into big designer glasses that can cover your eyes and cheecks or if your idea of outdoors is an outdoor shopping mall, these aren't your sunglasses!

    by fromI would buy this product again. I wear these sunglasses every where I go, I work outside in all conditions and they are great, I had a pair of gray lens/polorized, They got a little scratched up with my work so I traded them in because of Natives lifetime guarantee, and my REI membership. Got the amber lens this time, really lightens up low light situations, and also shades during high light situations. Good pair of glasses, will continue to buy Natives, gave up on Oakley, Spy, and Dragons.

    by fromGreat shades I am a converted Costa Fan. I used to only wear Costa's, but have become a HUGE Native Fan. This is my second pair (my roommate dropped my 1st and the got run over) and I don't see myself buying anything other then Natives from here on out. They are lightweight and look great. Costas are just to heavy and they fell off to easily. I'm not a big outdoorsman or anything, but I LOVE these shades, they look great and are even more comfortable. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

    by fromNative Throttle and Ripp Fan! I have had a few pairs of Native Throttle and RIpp models, and they not only fit well and comfortably, but way outlasted the other brands I have owned. I subjected mine to salt water and careless handling and PFD Vest pockets, and the lenses held up extremely well. I now use a lanyard, as I don't wanna lose my newest pair! [...]. If you boat, consider getting the floating lanyard from REI.

    by fromGood for just about any activity I purchased these about 9 months ago when I was looking for an all purpose pair of sunglasses that didn't look too techy or sporty. The Throttles definitely fit the bill. I wear them hiking, biking, camping, backpacking, driving; you name it. They are durable, easy to clean and you can't beat the lifetime guarantee on both lenses and frame. The polarized lenses are great, ventilation precludes any fogging up and they are so lightweight I almost forget I'm wearing them. Best pair of sunglasses I've ever owned.

    by fromMy throttle's refuse to die I wear these for everything. I bought a cycling specific pair of shades but end up wearing these more than anything. They have good peripheral visibility. The lenses have held up well, a few scratches but nothing major to warrant replacement. I've owned these for at least 4 years and would definitely buy these again. If I had to be nitpicky, the rubber nose bridge pieces have come off a few times while pulling them out of a bag, shirt pocket etc. but I always seem to be lucky and find them. Highly recommended brand, best sunglasses I've ever owned and Ive had a lot of brands that cost twice as much.

    by fromFits small faces I bet these would have been nice glasses, but they are so small I was shocked! If you are going to buy these online without trying them on in-store, I don't recommend it. I have tried on Native sunglasses for "medium faces" before, and these did not fit that bill. Even out of the package, I immediately checked the label wondering if I had accidentally purchased child glasses on accident. I love Natives and, especially their replacement policy, but I think they have mislabeled this sizing for these sunglasses. A disappointment moreover because they are on the lower end of the price range.
