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.
Rated1out of5byPackdudefromI HATE This BootFelt like a super good fit in the store. Read tons of great reviews, recommended by one of the REI staffers, too. Waited 'til dividends came out and used my 20% off coupon and dividend to buy these. Took them out on a walk around town that night, and my feet were just begging for mercy within 2 miles. I'm not sure if it was the stiffness/contour of the footbed or what, but I even tried it with Superfeet on a second walk, but it didn't make much difference. I guess I will stick with brands that work for me, like Merrell and Keen. All the Merrell's I've ever had have been comfortable from the time I first put them on, until they give up the ghost years later.

Rated2out of5byDBTHikerfromDisappointing, Not DurableI bought these in July 2013 after my long-wearing beloved Asolo's finally gave out. I wore them on light backpacking and day hikes in New Hampshire, Yellowstone, and places in between. This week, I went out for 4 days on the AT with a max load of 50 lbs (water and 4 days of food included). No matter how I laced them, the boots gave me blisters on both big toes and on the inside balls of both feet - I haven't had blisters in over 10 years. When I got home, I found that the sole on the right boot had started to delaminate. I doubt they have 250 miles on them. VERY disappointed. I'll be returning them this weekend.

Rated5out of5byAZbackcountryfromBest boots everBought these over a year ago. Have puts hundreds of miles on them, climbing canyons, hiking through the desert, beating them up. In my 30+ years of hiking, owning at least one pair of every major manufacturer out there, these are my favorite of all. They are so comfortable you can run in them, yes, I actually have. They stick to the edges of cliffs while exploring canyons and never make my feet feel tired. Only downside- tread is almost gone but hey, I've had boots that fall apart way before now and these are still going strong.

Rated5out of5byBomba07fromGreat Durable BootsI was torn between these and ASOLO Fugitive and picked these. I wore these boots for 15 days straight during the winter in NC. I carried a pack that was at least 80 lbs at times and they supported my feet every step of the way. They provided me with amazing ankle support also. The boots are very comfortable. I wore them in a pretty bad rainstorm and my feet stayed dry until water soaked through the top of my pants and worked its way to the bottom of my feet. I also wore them in a lot of snow and at one point my feet were wet on the bottom (Not sure if it was sweat or water) but I believe the Gortex holds up well. I also walked over hard rocks, soft sand and there was a time I was caught in Barbed wire that wrapped around my boots (they were only scratched up). I wear them every week when I go on hikes and they still hold up great!

Rated5out of5byVA Ridge RunnerfromExcellent all aroundI've put close to 50 Miles on these boots over the last 2 weeks, with little to no break in.
I've hiked through the snow, creek and river crossings, and these boots kept my feet dry. Without a doubt one of the best purchases I've made to date.

Rated1out of5byKettleHikerfromUsed to love themGiving up, returning 2nd pair...
I really like the boot, the fit, the support. They are comfortable, tough and sturdy. Well padded around the ankle and a bit stiff, but for me that's just right. Mostly wear them hiking on the weekend.
CONS: first pair started to leak within the first year - just waking through wet grass in the morning. I took those back, got 2nd pair. These were quite water resistant. A year or so later however, the soles are separating from the boot and starting to leak. The soles and boots are NOT showing any heavy wear. These are going back.
One other thing,unhooking the largest of the speed lace hooks is difficult, takes a couple tries because it snags inside the hook.
