    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.

    Camp Time Roll-A-Cot - Wide is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product Bought 2 of these along with a much larger tent, so that I could go camping again with my husband (I'm 55). Cot was easy to put together after reading others' comments about standing and shaking the cot, so that the sleeve poles slide down. > because of the mesh, the cot breathes > we put big furniture sliders under the cot legs, to protect the tent floor >2 thermarest-type pads on top of each cot made them very comfy. Don't know how they would fit on normal width Roll a Cot. >we slept fabulously, there's no other way to describe it. >needlenose pliers helpful to turn the wingnut to get the tension just right, espec for anyone w/weak or painful hands. >cot width: I'm 5'6", huband 5'8", both in normal weight ranges; we found the wide width "just right". >carrier attaches to cot with velcro and becomes a holder of needed stuff at night, a mesh night table

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Update to previous review I've now had this cot for two years and have used it for perhaps 20 nights. I increased the comfort by getting the REI Campbed 3.5 mattress. Although the Campbed is fairly good on the ground, it's even better on the Roll-a-Cot. The Cot adds more softness and suspension. I tried the current best camping mattress on the market (according to reviews), the Exped Mega Mat 10. This mattress supposedly measures 30" wide. The Roll-a-Cot is supposedly 34" wide. But the Mega Mat is definitely too wide for this cot---it is pushed up on each side by the rails--- showing once again that your cot needs to be quite a bit wider than your mattress. Tightening the tension has been an ongoing problem due to the difficulty of turning the small, sharp wingnuts. Finally a friend made me a sort of "wrench" out of oak that slips over the wingnuts. At the very least you should have pliers with you, but those could damage the wingnuts or the screw threads. The material may have stretched slightly over the last two years. So far the wingnuts have been able to take up the slack---but that depends on being able to turn them tightly with some type of tool. For people with joint problems like arthritis in the hips or back the Roll-a-Cot plus the REI Campbed 3.5 is the most comfortable setup I've found so far after a lot of searching for a comfortable bed. You will love the convenience of not having to get up from ground level. It makes changing your clothes much easier as well. If you're looking for a good tent to go with your Roll-a-Cot I recommend the Kelty Trail Ridge 4 (shown in the photo), which would accommodate two cots well, or one person in great comfort. The Roll-a-Cot doesn't fit well in most three-person tents because of its 15" height. You need a tent height of about 58" or more with this cot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cot for a wall tent This cot was purchased to be a smaller lighter weight version than my truck camp cot. I am using this for a horse/mule pack in elk hunt and wanted something light yet farther off the ground than the 6" versions from other vendors. It accomplished all my goals of ~10lbs or less, off the ground and even has the bonus feature of having some storage included.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy traveler I bought my first after a float trip down the John Day river. Six night under the open sky convinced me. I've now got 5 and use them at home and for camping. I recommend an old pair of pliers...assemble with the wing nuts loose, then tighten to get the tension you like to sleep on.
