    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.

    by fromdainty Very cool little lantern, although after using it once, the ceramic shield on the ignitor cracked in half and rendered the ignitor useless. You could still use it with a lighter just fine. The glow from the lantern is beautiful. It would be sweet if they sold a stand for you to cook on it because the top gets so hot.

    by fromFavorite Lantern There are lighter and smaller lanterns, but this is my favorite. Super easy to light with the auto ignition. The frosted globe creates a nice diffused light, and the lightweight wire hanger design is the best I've seen. Just loop the wire over a branch, and hook the wire back on itself. The protective case can be a little bulky in a back pack. It uses the same fuel canisters as most stoves, so it is nice to be able to use the same fuel source for all.

    by fromA Pretty Cool Lantern This isn't something I bring with me on every trip but when I do, it's awesome. It's easy to set up. The mantel is easy to install and prep. Once that's done, it's just a matter of screwing it onto a fuel canister. Lighting the mantel is a breeze. The piezo igniter worked everytime. I realize that not everyone is going to have the same result but lighting system is designed well and it should light the mantel with little effort. Once it's lit, it's bright. Alone, it's enough to light up a small campsite. It's all the light I need. I've had it on for 12 hours straight, mostly at a low setting and I still had plenty of fuel left. My best guess is that it will burn for at least 24 hours with a 110 (small) isobutane canister if one is conservative with the amount of fuel used. I only have 2 small gripes about the product. The first is that it's larger in size and heavier than I thought it would be. The second is that it would be nice to be able to detach the hanging wire more easily (it's not designed to detach at all but it can be done). Otherwise, I would give this product 5 stars.

    by fromPerfect backpacking camp light Read several complaints about the ignitor on this little guy. I've never had any problems. I just make sure to adjust it close enough to the gas diffuser that I get a spark each time i have to put on a new mantle. Also heard complaints of short run times, I tested it at home on a low setting and it ran for 32 hr straight on a 100g fuel canister. Love it!

    by fromAwesome little lantern Trying to downsize some of my older camping equipment, and after reading the reviews on this, thought it might be worth a try. This little lantern is definitely a keeper. It is MUCH quieter than the Coleman propane single and double mantle lanterns, it's much easier to pack, the piezo ignition is a plus, the light output on high with the frosted globe is much easier on the eyes, and the adjustment feature allows the lantern to be dimmed to barely lit. Like other reviewers mentioned, there was a mantle in the box with the lantern. And while the REI near my home does carry the mantles for this lantern now, I plan to stock up, just so I have extras on hand.

    by fromdurable, light weight, reliable I got this about 2 years ago thinking I would take it packing with us. It's really not essential when packing for me ( have a head lamp), but did find a use for it when we went car camping. Each year a buddy and i fly out west or north west for backpacking, and some nights we will car camp when driving in between places. This thing is great to hang from a tree or just sit on a rock, great light output, packs small (for air travel, no fuel) and super efficient on fuel. I usually use this to burn up the end of jetboil canister. Started using it for car camping trips close to home with my son. Great light for making dinner in the fall when light roles off early. I recommend tucking an extra mantel in the bottom of the carrying case. Light control is pretty touching, usually really dim or really bright, but not really an issue. Gets kind of funky with light output at high altitudes (at 12K feet it flickered a bit and light output kind of varied).

    by frombest buy This lantern is by far the best one I have used in 30 years. It does exactly what it is supposed to do,provide light for the campsite. It can be easily adjusted and will not light up the entire forest. Lets face it were camping because we want to get away from "city lights". On a usable setting it will easily last a weekend and a half. The hanging wire is a definite plus, although it does get hot. So hang it in a safe place or get the optional butane can base (you can use it for your stove also). The carrying case makes it less prone to break if packed improperly. All in all you cant go wrong with this light. The Primus yellowstone stove is a equally goood product.
