    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 fromEh I figured these are cheap enough that ill give them a shot. I was really intrigued to use these for weekend hiking trips so I would not have to apply bugspray and stay slightly cleaner. I started off my hike and there were no bugs. About half an hour later some fly/gnats came out and I pulled this out and strapped it to my sternum strap (I figured this was closer no my head and since bugs like c02 this is where they mostly are.) It seemed to work and the bugs disappeared. I was happy and left it on all day and it was effective. I stored in two zip lock bags overnight to keep it from loosing its effectiveness. The next day I again started without it and soon took it out. It did nothing. I then swapped it out for some picardin spray - bam the bugs were gone. There were no mosquitoes or black flies (at least that I saw) on the trip. I would say this could be effective at local parks or backyard BBQ where bugs are out, but not in high concentrations. I would NOT depend upon this product as your only defense for backpacking trips. Of course different products work different for everyone...this is just my opinion
