    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.

    Platypus Water Tank - 1.5 gal. is rated 2.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from zipper is hard to close when cold I use this bag as a main gravity bag. I screw my Sawyer filter to it and hang it on a branch and let gravity do my filtering. Works great for that... However, when you fill the bag with 34 degree water that was running over a glacier less than an hour before, the zipper is nearly inpossible to get closed with both cold fingers and cold plastic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tanks for the tank This Tank replaces a collapsable water carrier which developed a leak. That carrier had a greater capacity, which I miss, but was often awkward to fill. The Platypus Tank is much easier to fill. Once full, I found I had to be careful when closing the "zip lock" seal: it isn't simply a matter of "zipping" it shut. When not in use, it lies flat (and thin). All in all, a move up; increase the capacity and make the seal easier to use and I would call it a five-star product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flawed design Extremely difficult to seal the zip lock seam, so I threw it away after two canoe trips to Boundary Waters (should have returned it for refund). We would fill this bag with lake water while canoeing to shore, but I could seldom close the zip lock successfully, so we would paddle to camp with the top open, water spilling into the canoe. Maybe I could have sealed it with pliers, but it should not be so difficult.
