    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.

    Yaktrax Walkers - Unisex is rated 3.4444 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for everyday casual use I needed some kind of traction that I could throw on my dress shoes when walking to and from my car at work. The trail (shortcut) I take to get to my car gets really show packed and slick. Before I jump on the trail, I quickly pull these over my shoes. They work great. No more slipping and falling.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart My wife and I got these last winter in Yosemite. Mine fell apart the first hike, hers on the second. They worked fine before falling apart. A waste of money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 'trax' kept us on track Just used YAKTRAX to summit Thorong Lo Pass at almost 18000' on the Annapura Circuit in Nepal. It was knarly, with minimal trail cut into the slope, which fell sharply at 60 degree and more than 600'. YAKTRAX was invaluable; most of the group of 16 used them... they worked!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great item! I got this item as a gift after constantly slipping on ice in a pair of boots whose sole I wore down to nothing. The Yaktrax were perfect! I can now wear my favorite boots in icy/snowy conditions without worrying about slipping every other step! As they're easy to put on/take off, I also use them on my snow boots and wear them around the mountain after snowboarding/snowshoeing. Unfortunately, I cannot put them on my running shoes because they are too bulky and would definitely throw off my stride and cause an injury. The model I own, however, are made specifically for walking. Yaktrax supposedly sells running grips similar to these, but I haven't been able to find them and cannot comment on their effectiveness.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken on the very frist day How disappointing, these Yaktrax broke the very first time I used them. I was walking an easy woodsy trail with 3 inches of new snow for an hour. When I took them off I was surprised to see that one had broken in 2 places and the other had broken in one place. My old Yaktrax lasted 2 years and I loved them. How disappointing, they must be using cheaper rubber these days.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please read the product description? I have gait issues from MS, and these make winter walking so much safer for me. The negative reviews are most likely from people who didn't read that these aren't for mountaineering use - get something more heavy duty for such a use. These work great for walking to/from the gas station, the bus stop to work, etc.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Work well, but can come off- get the Pro These (the basic Yaktrax Walkers) actually worked very well, until I had to put them on again. One got loose while I was putting it on and catapulted down the side of the steep hill I was hinking on in the Grand Canyon. I'd imagine that if they got loose while wearing them the same thing could happen. I had to finish my hike wearing only one. I'm buying the Pro version next time. There's an extra strap on top that will hold them on. It weighs an extra few ounces, which is why I got the basic version, but they won't do much good if I lose them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I have run in the Walker model many times on plowed, but icy roads, 3-5 miles. The steel springs are wearing well, but are now wearing through in 2 places. This is a result of patches of clear asphalt on a run that otherwise would be too slippery. I've also worn them on hikes in 6-8" snow over LL Bean Boots. They do not clog up; they do not fall off. They're about 8 years old and I expect to get another 2 or 3 years out of them. Your mileage may vary.
