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.
Rated5out of5byAnne shopperfromLove thisI use this product to jog in the early morning hours. I had a vest that fit very poorly and I was looking for something to keep me visible while I jog in the street. This fits amazing - adjustable straps to fit any body type. There is reflective fabric to glow when cars drive by. I have searched high and low and even returned other reflective jackets and vests that were either not reflective enough or fit poorly. FINALLY, I FOUND THE PERFECT REFLECTIVE ITEM

Rated2out of5byMore Oxygen PleasefromUtter waste for anyone over 5'6As a 6'3" person, there is no adjustment of this product that will fit properly. It isn't nearly long enough to get the belt to reach my waist, and it's very restrictive to leave it up around the diaphragm.
As a result of the poor fit, the chest pocket becomes useless as well. Running with anything of substance in the pocket will result in that object slamming repeatedly against your breastbone or solar plexus with every step.
For a very short person, this vest might be a good purchase. It seems well-made and reflective. For me, since I've disposed of the packaging and therefore can't return it, this thing pretty much is going straight to the dump.

Rated5out of5byfryedesignfromThe bestI had the chance to compare just about every running vest in action while running in the middle of the night recently at a Ragnar event. The Amphipod vests were hands down the most reflective.
The vest is very adjustable, very light, and doesn't chafe. What more could you want in a reflective vest? (Except maybe pockets, but you can pay $5 more and get that too)

Rated5out of5byPuddle JumperfromA must for any runnerIf you are a runner and run at night, this is a must. Cars easily see you and move away as a result. I also run Ragnar, and this is the best, most comfortable night-running vest I've tried on. It doesn't get in the way of my arm movement and once you tighten it, it stays in place pretty good. Occasionally, there is a little riding up, but I just make some adjustments and it works. I highly recommend it for any runner.

Rated5out of5byPaul Gigfromway better than a vest!I bought this for running. I participated in a 200 mile relay event, a requirement was lights and a reflective vest for night running. I had tried a vest and couldn't stand it. I had thought to myself...what if I simply cut the reflective strips off to make something that resembled a school safety patrol belt. Low and behold....one existed!
There were 10 people on our team, and I believe 3 of us used/owned one of these.

Rated4out of5byRoab the RunnerfromSee me coming, see me going...I am very satisfied with the quality of construction and the reflectivity of the material. I don't like having to zinch down the waist belt in order to obtain a better fit. The shoulder straps tend to cause the belt to ride up around my stomach instead of my waist were I would prefer it. I expect the issue to resolve itself once the shoulder straps begin to lose elasticity. It is not a huge problem and I would definately buy again over a vest design that would trap heat and moisture.

Rated5out of5byMollybobfromAmazingI thought the reviews about cars giving a wider birth were exagerations until I wore this the first time. I am a night rider since most of our fall, winter and spring months are mostly dark. And I love the quiet of night out on deserted country roads and city streets. The first time I wore this there were cars that actually stopped for me to cross major arterials when I was just waiting at the corner for them to pass. I can tell that cars slow down more behind me and do give me more room when going around. I feel a lot more comfortable in this product. My riding clothes change too much with the weather and temps to stick to one high vis jacket so I love the fact that I can wear this with my down coat or a t-shirt. Some extra length would be good for going over my big puffy coat but it still is good. Great product.
