    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.

    Harmony House Backpacking Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dehyrdated Happiness So you wanna save weight but eat well? Not alot of time to prep for a trip? Here is THE yummy DIY starter box of important veggies for trail stompers. Its smartly packed and resealable. Comes as advertised: Tomatoes, Celery, Corn, Diced Potatoes, Carrots, Cabbage, Onions, Peas, Lentils, Beans - Black Pinto Northern Red and Green. And PEPPERS ! nothing hot (boo hoo) I was able to make 10 days of large dinners by adding some spices, dehy butter, noodles, rice and cans of meat. Tuna cass, Chicken Stew, Chili and Gumbo. Also did a skillet scramble, with a little help from some eggs and cheese powder, lots of combos. SO for me this would have been 5 stars IF they had some meat with the box, powdered butter and cheese but its a starter box and the nutrition info is on the back (way cool) helps with planning and knowing your intake. In all, its a good no preservative no additives (like tons of salt) healthy way to eat on the trail. I am holding out hope for an organic selection in the future. Gonk tested Gonk approved.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy! I thought this was a great price when I saw it! After I picked it up that day I made a meal with it, just adding rice and it was pretty good! Cooks fast, and there is enough variety to keep your taste buds satisfied (maybe bring a little seasoning to bring up the flavor). Makes a lot of food, so you only have to bring a few bags with you and it will last several weekend camping trips.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for work and play Great kit. Easy one stop shop for almost everything you need. I only wish REI had the 30 pk variety kit, cause it has TVP as well. I use this backpacking and hiking. I also keep one of the kits in my work truck with a jetboil, it comes in handy when my normal 8hr day turns into 18hrs and I need something to eat. Quick cook time is awesome. Presoaking for 15-30min drastically lowers the cook time saving you on fuel.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great and easy to use product. If you are looking for lightweight, healthy meals (and gluten-free to boot) then look no further. I have made and combined the meals with the recipes provided, and have also added to other food products to make it either go further, or improve taste. Great product, and hard to beat the price compared to other dehydrated/freeze-dried food products.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Healthy Foods in the Backwoods Unhappy with the prepackaged options available on the market, I thought I could create healthier meals on my own so that's what lead me to the Backpacking Kit. The meal kit does not contain sodium so you are able to control the amount in your food. I use the boil in a bag method for cooking. You can reduce cook time if you pre-soak the vegatables before you cook so in the morning before I head out I add water so they are nice and soft by dinner time. I add them to pasta and usually add a protein. Also use bouillon cubes and other seasonings to add flavor. Great recipes included, but you can create your own. Great way to save money while on the trail and have something healthy to eat!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new standard for thru-hiking I purchased this amazing box of goodies for a 3-day, 2-night getaway for two, and there was plenty of food left over. I was overwhelmed by how many different ingredients were in the box. The recipe list also helped since I was in a hurry when making the purchase and didn't have time to look up what I was able to make with all the ingredients in the box. If every stop on the Appalachian Trail carried this box, life would have been so much more simple and MUCH more cheaper when I hiked for 2 months on the AT last year.
