    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromDoes not stick after Nikwax DWR applied Have used this many times in the past with good results, however, I have just discovered that it does not stick after applying Nikwax DWR treatment. Pity, as it makes more sense to apply it after the treatment rather than worry about it coming off during treatment, but that seems to be the only option.

    by fromSuper Tape Simply put, this gear tape just plain works. Whether it's on tent fabric, sleeping pads, rain jacket, awnings, etc. it sticks well, is very water resistant. It is easy to install and goes on without any special priming. It also doesn't leave sticky residue around the edges to attract dirt. Only downside is that the clear tape does slightly yellow with age.

    by fromGood value I have used this tape on kite surfing gear. I have one patch that has been on my kite for the last 5 years it will out live the kite which gets weekly use Sun, sand and surf. For the price, convenience and just plain durability I highly recommend this tape it fits easily in a emergency repair kit adds no weight to your gear and does a great job.

    by fromStuck on (thank goodness!) Tired of looking cheap and later having to replace the duck-tape "patche" on the inner cuff of my ski pants, I finally covered up the tears from my ski edges with this tape. Someone at REI advised me to also use the Seam Grip product to go around the edges of the tape- I used this strategy. Been out for two hard days of skiing in both loose granular and powder conditions and have had no problems with the tape. Though you can notice the seam grip around the patches, I don't mind it whatsoever.

    by fromThis stuff is awesome I used this to patch up 2 holes in a down jacket. I can't comment on waterproofing, but this tape stayed on through a whole winter in a horse barn and made it through the washer and dryer (gentle cycle/low heat) looking exactly the same as before. Amazing! Forget sewing. I recommend rounding the corners before you put the tape on, as the directions suggest.

    by fromMagic tape Tenacious Tape is an important part of my repair kit. It sticks to just about any synthetic fabric or plastic, its waterproof and its durable. I've got a couple pieces of gear with T Tape patches from 3 or 4 years ago that are still holding strong. It's an excellent quick fix to an unexpected gear malfunction like a tear in a tent wall or a burned hole through a rain jacket.

    by fromTape Works Fine, The Package Needs Work Some of the tape was ruined getting it out of the tube that it is packaged in, & it's impossible to put the remaining material back in the tight little tube package after use without ruining more of the material. The tube is a clever packaging idea, poorly executed.
