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.

Rated3out of5byalexwhittemorefromGood quality but not well thought-outMy biggest problem is that the interior space is very poorly used. I have a GSI minimalist cook set as well (basically a hard anodized cup, insulating sleeve, lid/sippy top, and spork). That's great because it PERFECTLY fits a stove and fuel canister inside, all you need for a compact setup and exactly as compact as it's possible to be.
This set, while bigger, makes very poor use of the interior space. The bowl and cup take up pretty much all of it so that you can't fit anything else useful. The handle doesn't come with any sort of sleeve, and I wouldn't want to put it inside the closed pot since there's nowhere to fit it that's protected by the plastic bowl and cup (it'll just knock around scratching the nonstick finish). With very minimal changes, the bowl and cup could have fit the handle, protecting the pot surfaces from it. As it stands, the handle doesn't fit in without some kind of padding around it.
I'll probably just ignore the cup and bowl, and instead fill the pot/lid with bags of food and whatnot that won't scratch up the coating.

Rated4out of5byNarrow WayfromGreat dealThis worked great on our 5 day backpack trip. Works well for two people, not quite big enough for three. I didn't need the cup and saucer, so no comment on them. Handle works great. Great deal for the price I paid.

Rated3out of5byTay TayfromPerfect for Anywhere & AnytimeThe REI Campware Mess Kit has been an essential integration to my backpacking and leisure activities. Whether it's a trip up Whitney or kicking it on the beach with friends, I've found having this little set increases my options. I've made hot drinks, pasta, and eggs in this set. It's great for high-calorie personal or two-person use. The only thing I changed was that I added a silicone bowl and cup to replace the hard plastic ones that came with the set. The silicone ones can stay insulated and won't burn the hands as well as are easier to clean and pack away. Sometimes I could use a bigger pan/pot too.

Rated4out of5byadventurechick92fromREI Campware Mess KitI purchased this particular mess kit for a couple of reasons. While I am not the biggest fan of tefalon it is very easy to clean and in the backcountry anything that makes life easier and clean up faster is great in my book. Also, I liked the two pot system and as a kind of bonus the set came with a bowl and cup. Typically I use my Fozzils Solo Pack-Kids set (hey, it may be kids but it has a plate, bowl, cup, and spoon (though I use a spork instead) verses the adult solo pack with less) but it was nice to have a bowl and cup as well because I can't even begin to name all the times friends either haven't had a bowl to use or they managed to forget theirs. Also, this set packs very well. I saw some reviews saying that the set doesn't pack well and that the top pot slides a lot, causing the edges to scratch. I have not had a problem with that. REI packaged this set with a handy mesh bag to store the kit in and if you use the mesh bag there is no problem. The only con I really see with this set is that it is unstable on my Pocket Rocket but that of course is my choice. I'll maybe eventually get one that sits better on the Pocket Rocket but in the mean time this is a great kit!

Rated3out of5byadventurechick92fromREI Campware Mess Kit by REII bought this mess kit on sale and figured I'd give it a go even though it was not exactly what I was looking for I figured I would try to make it work. That in mind I cannot be too harsh towards this product. I think if you plan on just doing car camping then this is a great product. However, for backpacking purposes, which is what I want a mess kit for, this is not the best. It sits very unstable on my MSR Pocket Rocket stove and I don't often make pancakes in the backcountry. This set is not a good, stable one to just boil water on. That being said, for what it is it is a good little stove. I would return it and will return it if I can find the receipt but for the backcountry this isn't any good. I plan to try out the GSI Outdoors Pinnacle Soloist Cookset.
