    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.

    • New hydroformed shaft is stiffer and lighter than the previous model, yet it still maintains excellent clearance
    • Hydroforming uses pressurized water to expand the Viper's shaft into a unique shape that is exceptionally stiff and light
    • Equipped with Viper Fang and Strike to cradle your hands while climbing leashless; Strike allows you to match hands or choke up while climbing

    • Stainless-steel head and 7075 aluminum shaft combine for lightweight but durable power on ice and mixed routes
    • Superb balance creates a natural swing for placements with excellent purchase
    • Hammer head shatters loose ice and drives in protection
    • Thermoplastic urethane grip provides a sure hold while wearing gloves
    • A great tool for mixed climbing, waterfall ice and drytool classics

    by fromGreat tool This tool, both hammer and adze are great. I have found the picks to be quite durable, even with dry tooling and sometimes going a little too deep on thin ice. I love the swing weight, and the adjustability of the handle should work for both big hands (like mine) and small hands alike. Overall I am extremely pleased with these tools. The only gripe is I am having a hard time finding the 2007 specific leashes.

    by fromthe best I have use this axe for two years (out of ten). It's not often that a piece of gear can make that big of a difference but I went from 3-3+ to comfortable leading 4+ and playing on M8. I got the fang, it protects my knuckles. I can clip in or go leashless. The fixed position of the clip in point for the androids is a bit too high, in my opinion. I highly recommend these.
