    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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 fromIMPOSSIBLE TO ADJUST I SPENT 29.1 MILES FIDDLING WITH THIS THING AND COULD SEE NOTHING BUT MY SHOULDER. FINALLY BY HOLDING MY HEAD JUST RIGHT I COULD SEE A SLIM BIT OF ROAD JUST OVER MY SHOULDER. IT WOULD NOT ATTACH TO MY HELMET. IT'S MOSTLY USLESS AND BLOCKS VISION IN LEFT QUADRANT.

    by fromDecent mirror, but there are problems This mirror is easy to install and provides adequate visibility. There are a lot of adjustments that allow you to get it set in the best location. A small movement of your head will allow you to see if any cars are approaching. It is, of course, always best to take a glance behind you before moving further into the lane. These are not suitable for wire rim or thin-rimmed glasses as these don't allow enough surface area for the mirror to grip. I attached it to the sun visor of my helmet. The plastic of the visor is slightly flexible. Over time the pressure of the clamp tends to deform the plastic slightly and the clamping force becomes less as a result. Yesterday when I was riding down a hill about 25 mph I hit a few bumps and the mirror popped off. I stopped and was able to find the mirror and it survived the bounce on the road just fine. Later in the day i was going down another hill at about the same speed and the mirror fell off again, but this time the road was smooth. Unfortunately, I was unable to find the mirror this time so I am out the money for the mirror. I would suggest that you tape the mirror to the helmet sun visor for added protection.

    by fromWorks Great! Scratches Easily... This mirror took we awhile to adjust to the right position, but once you get that right it works great. The only downside is durability I was keeping the mirror in my bike tool bag and my pocket knife scuffed up the glass

    by fromTakes body rotation out of seeing behind you Before I retired, I used to ride my bike to the transit center & the bus would take me and my bike to work. I noted then that it was awkward & for me, unstable, to try and turn around to see if there was a car behind me. Finally, 2yrs later, I invested in a bike mirror. This one received the most reviews and the price was right so I purchased it. If it were not for the internet, I would probably still be trying to figure out how to configure it on my paticular helmet, but thankfully, a help video took all the guesswork out of installing it. So, seeing if a car is coming behind me: Check

    by fromThis is the one you want I have had several PLASTIC mirrors of this type, and the attachment clip breaks after a while. This model is all METAL, and it rocks!

    by fromYep, this is the one you want Yes, the other reviewers are correct, this is the best option out there. I've tried the others and they pale in comparision to this model. Takes several rides to get accustomed to but don't give up, it will become second nature after a while. You'll fiddle with the mirror angle a LOT during your first few rides so be careful with that distraction. Yes, you'll need to turn/tilt your head a little to get the best view behind you but once you master the technique you'll appreciate the added safety this mirror provides. I just returned from a 300 mile road trip with this unit and the peace of mind it provides is beyond words. I won't leave home without it.

    by fromLast mirror you'll need I use this daily for bike commuting and fitness/recreational rides. I've used the plastic-framed mirrors before, and none work as well as this one. It stays at the angle I need it to and clips firmly to my Oakley Radars, which means all I have to do is glance at my mirror to see what's behind me. I can definitely see it being useful in other outdoor activities as well.

    by fromStop looking and buy this one I mostly mountain bike, but recently started riding to work. On these back roads I decided I needed a mirror to see what was coming up behind me. Since I commute on a mountain bike I didn't want a handlebar mount. My primary concern was having a mirror with enough surface area to get a good view behind me, and one that would stay steady in a strong head/cross wind. This mirror met all of my criteria and more! I have ridden with this mirror clipped to my helmet visor in 30+mph headwind and it never even budged. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
