      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.

      by fromfalls off too easily These were recommended to me as well as being better than YakTrax. I tried them on two hikes through rocky, mountainous terrain. Both times they came off. The first time they were on some very bulky winter boots. I figured the boots were just too bulky for these to get a good grip, but the second time they were just over my walking shoes, and the same problem happened. I'm not sure what they WILL grip around, or whether, as others noted, they are just not good except on flat terrain. Worse, they are black and so don't stick out visually so it is harder to notice when they're gone. And there is no extra strap to hold them on (the way YakTrax Pro has). I was going to fashion one myself, but I did borrow a strap temporarily and the most it would do is to keep them from getting lost; they still came off my feet. In the end I gave up and got YakTrax Pro, and I'll eventually get Micro-Spikes or another mini crampon as well.

      by fromStabilicers I went on a snowy, icy hike with these Stabilicers. This was the third time i wore them and the rubber is already stretched and doesn't stay on boots! They pretty much ruined the hike because they fell off quickly, I almost lost one, and after 4 tries i gave up! I walked without and took a bad fall, then had to borrow microspikes. About 10 people on the hike said REI gets lots of them returned and no one is pleased with them for long!

      by fromOnly good for level ground I was disappointed with this product. After using Yaktrax, which broke during my first use, an REI employee recommended these as the "upgrade." On the plus side, they provide excellent traction on steep sections and are relatively easy to put on (under certain conditions). On the negative side, they fall of frequently. Although I used the sizing chart on the package, in a 40 minute period, mine and my friends STABILicers fell off twice. I believe the issue is the slope of the terrain you are following. Going up hill the back tread tends to slip off to the side, which loosens the overall connection of the STABILicers' to the boot. Going down hill, the front catch of the STABILicers slips off the toe the boot which and the whole thing just gets left behind. In a warm car they are easy to put on, but on a cold trail with no place to sit and with frozen's quite a miserable experience. I recommend these only for walking around the neighborhood on icy days and not for hiking over any kind of change in elevation.

      by fromNot for steep terrain My wife and I used the STABILicers Lite on a recent summit of Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire. We hiked in early March when the entire trail was still covered in snow and ice. While the STABILicers gripped the snow and ice well, they repeatedly slipped off during the steeper sections of the trail. Despite being the right size and tension, the ground seemed to catch the toe and pull these off. I would recommend them only for use on flat surfaces.

      by fromNot effective for steep descents I used the STABILicers Lite on a winter ascent of Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire. While they gripped the snow and ice fairly well on the way up, as soon as I hit steep terrain on the descent, they regularly slipped off the front of my hiking boot. I had to stop and put them back on several times on the way down. They were the right size (I double checked), but the way they were designed limits the extent to which they fit securely over the front of the boot. Compared to MICROspikes, which I purchased after returning these, the STABILicers Lite do not have nearly as much grip over the toe of the boot.

      by fromMaybe Ice - Not For Snow Bought these for added traction in the snow and possible ice for a hike. The metal teeth looked promising but in snow, my boots provided more traction without them. We didn't run into icing conditions - and maybe they'd be better suited for that. For snow, they didn't add any noticeable grip over a pair of decent boots. Once they fell off my feet, they stayed off.

      by fromgood traction I love it that these are small and light enought to pack into my day pack, yet provide good grip on both packed snow and ice. However, I had to devise velcro straps across the insteps because they are easy to fall off. Problem MAY be my boots...Keen boots have rounded sole heels, and that may be making them slip off easily; however, they are falling off at the toes, not at the heels. The addition of instep straps helped them stay on. I didn't see another model that has straps; the only other StabilIcers I saw was the heavy-duty, and heavy, ones, which I didn't consider useful for winter outing with my pack already stuffed full of winter gear.
