    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.

    Featuring a 12-point design optimized for general-purpose mountaineering, Petzl Vasak crampons excel on long glacier routes and ridge traverses.

    • Point lengths are optimally set to reduce stilt effect, improving stability and walking efficiency in mixed conditions
    • Flat front points provide excellent holding power and the next two points angle forward for support while front pointing
    • Semiflexible design combines rigid support on steep angles and flex for natural walking comfort
    • Crampons adjust easily without tools, accommodating half-sizes for an accurate, snug fit
    • Low-profile Antisnow® plates help prevent sticky snow from balling up beneath your feet without interfering with the projection of the points
    • Flexlock binding system is ideal for boots without welts; it uses low-bulk, flexible toe and heel bindings to adapt to most boot shapes and sizes
    • Nylon webbing straps snug the toe and heel pieces securely in place without excessively squeezing sides of boots

    Please note: Petzl products can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

    Petzl Vasak Flexlock Cramponsis rated5.0out of5by2.
    Rated5out of5byfromSolid/versatile all around cramponUSE:I needed a pair of crampons for my Mt. Shasta trip so I did some research and decided the Vasak crampons were the way to go! I wore these with a Men's size 11 Zamberlan Vioz GT boots. They fit perfectly! I had no problems walking on the 50-70 degree slopes and no problems with the crampons slipping or coming loose. FIT: The Vasak has a great strap system so it allows a tight and snug fit over the boot (even if you have thick gaitors on). I never had to stop to adjust or tighten the crampons! The flexlock system hugs the rear boot and front toe to prevent the boot from slipping and coming loose. (with regards to fit: I would highly recommend you visit your local REI to see if your mountaineering/hiking boots are compatible or fit the crampons before purchasing them. this varies by shoe/size) PRICE: these are slightly more expensive compared to the BlackDiamond and Grivel. I went with the Vasak because of the 12 point tempered steel points, they made the crampons feel more solid, more points for contact, and sturdy. OVERALL: great pair of crampons, solid non-slip, great 12 point contact, highly recommended! :)

    Rated5out of5byfromWell doneI used these for the mountaineering route up Mt. Whitney. They worked great with plenty of grip. No complaints.
