    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.

    REI Trail Stool is rated 4.3043 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nifty little thing This little trail stool is awesome! I originaly bought it to keep up off the ground in tick season but since then it has been a constant companion on many adventures; usually clipped to the back of my pack hanging down like a tail behind me. I don't even notice it until I wanna take a 5. Then I just pop it down and thats that. I've also found good use for this thing from doing camp chores to taking a break behind work. Anytime I want a seat its sitting in my car waiting. On camping or backpacking trips you cant beat it... poof instant seat.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little buy Bought this stool for backpacking and I must say I don't see myself going without it now. It makes cooking so much easier and not to mention just relaxing by the campfire. I would like to upgrade to the REI Flex Lite chair, which a buddy had on a recent trip and was amazingly comfortable however for the weight you can't beat this stool. If you are a car camper I would suggest a full chair, but this trail stool is just that... for the trail.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Up off the ground! Great for backpacking. No backrest, but no getting up off the ground either. I used it for a 7-day trip and was so glad I had it. The strap around the bottom is confusing - no one knows what purpose it serves so I will probably cut it off and just leave a small velcro loop for holding the stool closed when it's tied on my pack. It's also a nice place to set things you want to keep off the ground. I found this stool quite comfortable. I'm 5'6" and 125 pounds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little chair My husband got one for when he goes hiking and i thought it was silly since but then i sat on it in the garage while chatting with him while he stood and i loved it so much that i ordered 1 for myself! Not silly at all! ;) We'll just keep them in the garage for when we decide to chat there again and take them with us on any hikes and trips. I suppose that it's too bulky and heavy for backcountry or cross country hikes cuz that's when every oz matters, but it's perfect for all other uses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Backpacking Stool Great backpacking stool and very nice to have when on the trail. So light you don't know you are carrying it and easy to pack on the side of your backpack. Keep your rear off the ground and get this stool.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from lightweight and works well! I bought this trail stool to use while I do landscape photography. it is light enough/compact to easily strap to my camera backpack (Lowepro ProTrekker AW400). It works well for sitting on to rest while taking pictures, but I also got it to use as a small table to rest my camera bag on if I dont want to set it on the wet/muddy/snowy ground. it isnt the most stable for that, considering it is meant for your butt to sit on, but in a pinch, you can use it as a temporary table. The velcro strap used to hold the legs together while it is closed is nice. All-in-all it is a nice little (somewhat dual purpose) trail stool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet stool! I mainly use this in my garage when I'm working on my mountain bike or motor scooter. I love it. Extremely lightweight and handles my 195 lbs easily.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it Since my husband takes a lot of photography, the stool comes in handy for me to sit while waiting for him to finish picture taking. It is lightweight, which is what I was looking for. The only problem I have is when closing it, the straps don't stay together to keep the chair folded tight. I have only used it on one photo trip. Hopefully, the construction of the stool will hold up a long time.
