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 of5byNexus7fromCan barely feel it's thereI ran a few times this winter with this waist-pack/belt/fanny-pack, when it was warmer than 40 F. I had on just running tights, a pair of shorts, and shirts, and a windbreaker or a sweatshirt. It went right over the shorts, and I barely knew it was there. It had just my phone (for weight and size comparisons, it is a Nexus 5), and cards, money, and key. In the spring, I won't have the shorts on, but I doubt I'll feel it then, given the light weight and wide and (relatively) soft belt. The pouch zipper closes over the Nexus 5 with only a little effort, and this is a big screen, so this pouch is spacious. I think the water bottles they sell for their heavier belt will work with this one too, but I haven't tried that yet.

Rated5out of5byDaemonaquilafromPerfect size and fitThis is an excellent belt to carry everything you need for running - gels, phone, key, MP3 player, etc. It stays put and doesn't weigh you down. Unfortunately, adding the Snapflasks to it is not a good idea. It unbalances the belt and causes it to shift around, and the flasks themselves are poorly designed to stay on. Horizontal configuration stays in place better than vertical but uses up a lot of space. Enjoy the belt but get a different system for carrying liquid.

Rated5out of5byMissVixenfromIt is not a fanny packVery comfortable and light weight. There's no bouncing or need to readjust which is great while you are running. I bought this to wear on a tough mud run event and it came in handy to store my energy snacks. It was also very easy to wash.

Rated5out of5byOldscouterfromCan carry Samsung S4! Oh happy day!Carries my Samsung S4 in its hardcase securely to me while I run and exercise. Not other product on the market dares come close. The S4 and its case are far larger than most designs by other mfgs. and answers my need to have a cellphone within reach while I play. This is my second Amphipod and I expect a long tenure of service similar to the first.

Rated5out of5byepistolarianfromFantastic!I was worried about the pack staying in place because I was blessed with wide hips and a small waist. The pack won't stay on my hips, but it's been absolutely no problem running with it around my waist. Today, I ran 8 miles in warm weather with my inhaler, cell phone, iPod touch, and a chapstick stashed. Even with everything jammed in there, the pack didn't move one inch during my run, and I barely felt it there. I always think it would look more stylish if it would stay around my hips like a regular belt, but it rests at the small of my back and the weight virtually disappears. The three-sectioned compartment divider was a brilliant idea. I've been able to pull out my iPod mid-run without worrying that I might lose my ID or emergency (ice cream) money.
Heading out tomorrow to get new shoes, and I'm planning to pick up two water bottles to add. Will update my review once I've had a few runs with the water bottles.

Rated5out of5byDirtGrlfromFunctional and comfortable w/out bounceGreat no bounce minimal option that will still hold a card wallet, a smart phone, and a key or three. The main zippered compartment has a divider so you can separate your keys to keep them from scratching your phone. The main pocket is easy to access if you want to start/stop your workout app. There are also two outer pockets (no zippers) to put gel packs or (unused) poop bags for your pup. It is very adjustable and you can cinch it down with the wide stretchable waist band to almost no bounce, or you can easily wear it looser for a trip to the farmer's market. Wearable around your hips or waist. Nice product!

Rated5out of5byRanger53fromFills the bill!I'm a 78-year old with a history of two heart attacks and stents. I walk 5-6 days a week year-round for a target 25-30 miles through my neighborhood and the surrounding desert. Need to carry ID info, Nitrostat tablets with instructions for administering in the event of another attack, full prescription lists and doctor contacts, together with iPod Shuffle and earphones,keys,etc. After many previous makeshift attempts, this waistpack meets all my requirements -- I can even hang a water bottle on the waistpack for my longer walks. A great solution for my requirements, without becoming an awkward burden. Thanks REI/AMPHIPOD.

Rated1out of5byOldtime CyclerfromPoor;y madePurchased to ride RAGBRAI (ride across Iowa). The zipper broke after only a few uses. REI was great to replace, but company needs to improve design by adding a stop similar to ones on coats.
I personally would not recommend this product.
