    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.

    Princeton Tec Tactical Quad Headlamp is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to light I have had this little guy for a few years now and it is still the light I grab when I head out anywhere I expect to be after dark. I choose it first because it has a red filter (among other colors) that flips up so I never have to cycle through bright white light to get to it (just make sure the cover is up before switching on as it can be pushed down). I used this daily on missions to protect my night vision and back on my blackout FOB (meaning no white lights visible outside after dark)in Afghanistan last year and was amazed it held up so well and the batteries lasted so long. I never needed to turn it up much beyond low. I still use it when my hands are full flipping burgers or working on the car. A little tip since it can be a bit clunky in your pocket, when you get to camp throw it on like a necklace and it will be there for you later when it gets dark.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from versatile light In my experience red is too dark for decent night vision and, if you are dealing with blood, renders blood invisible. The green filter on this light is just about right, and the filter slides up and down so you can have blinding white light in an instant if you want it. The first lighting option is the lowest setting, which is the one I use almost exclusively, so I don't have to toggle through too much light to get to my preferred setting. This headlamp is simple, functional and reliable. Everything you need and nothing you don't.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best headlamp I've ever owned I bought this headlamp a number of years ago and it's only just stopped working on me after heavy and consistent use in all weather and seasons. I definitely plan on getting another one. The battery life is long, it's durable and weatherproof (I've used it in total downpours, of which the ONLY positive experiece was having a good headlamp so I could finish my work quickly), and I've never had a headlamp last as long as this one has. If you are outside at night or overnight for work or recreation on a consistent basis, or even daily, I would highly highly recommend getting this headlamp.
