    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.

    Sawyer Water Filter System - 2 Literis rated4.5out of5by2.
    Rated5out of5byfromNo Need To Be ThirstyThis filtration system is very simple to use. Simply fill the bag, then connect the filter line and let gravity do the work. Water begins flowing through the filter very quickly. It comes with a backflow device to connect to a home faucet for cleaning the filter. Just be sure to not lose it! It is rated for a million gallons. I doubt I'll ever come close to that capacity, but perhaps my grandchildren will reach it!

    Rated4out of5byfromEfficient, lightweight, easy to useMy sons and I used an earlier version of this last year in the Winds very effectively to filter high mountain lake and stream water. It was easy to use, lightweight, easy to carry, and did not ever clog. This year I bought this version for a backpacking trip off the north rim of the Grand Canyon down to The Dome, in the Fern Glen Canyon and Tuckup Canyon area. I was concerned with possible clogging due to turbid water, but we found so little water that this was not a concern. The water we did find was highly mineralized and alkaline, all dissolved, so no filter can filter that out. The Sawyer system worked easily and effectively to filter large quantities of water. The only problem was that there is lacking a final tube with quick-connectors to connect to the water bladders that it is filling. I am not sure what the expectation was about connecting, but connecting the filter directly to a drinking bladder is not a good solution. I used an old drinking tube with a connector that would fit on the bottom of the filter. But it was missing the final connector, so I had to just feed it into the bladders we were filling. Otherwise a great product.
