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 of5byArferfromWell Worth ItThis head net saved the day on my last camping trip. As soon as pulled into my campsite and got off my bike, the mosquitoes attacked! I pulled out a bottle of DEET and sprayed it all over, but that didn't stop the mosquitoes from swarming. In spite of the bug spray, they were biting my lips, going in my nose, and buzzing around my ears and neck. Only the head net kept them at bay and allowed me to enjoy life outside my tent. Only drawback--you need to use a hat. I had forgotten to pack one, so I had to use my bicycle helmet--it worked great but was a bit hot. I now consider this little piece of equipment a vital part of my gear and I'll be packing it the rest of the summer.

Rated5out of5byfinal4onefromDoes the Job!This net is a wonderful protection from biting - and pesky - insects. I walk my dog between 3 and 6 miles a day in wooded terrain along a creek...BUG CENTRAL.
It's amusing to watch a mosquito right in front of my face buzzing around trying to find a way in. No way in.
I recommend the black because there is no possibility of distortion from glare.

Rated5out of5byBrian JfromThere's No Reason Not To Own ThisI bought this for my wife, for our trip to Canada, along w/the Outdoor Research Deluxe Spring Ring Headnet for me. I have decided to return the OR and buy my own S2S. This packs down so small there is no excuse not to bring it w/you. In the end I liked the S2S because it allowed me to see much better, doesn't have the extra fine mesh like the OR, and w/a hat it fits perfect over your head, no need for the extra support as I found the support to get in my way of seeing and constantly shifted and needed to be adjusted. My wife now uses hers all the time when she is gardening because it breathes better, stays in place and allows her to see through it easier.
The downside to this netting is that I don't know how well it might work w/smaller insects because of the netting and you will need a brimmed hat so it doesn't rest against your face.
