    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.

    REI Pack Duffel Bagis rated4.3636out of5by11.
    Rated4out of5byfromWorks wellI bought two of these to carry mine and my wife's packs to Nepal last year. These were our checked baggage. They did a really good job protecting our packs, but did take some abuse from the baggage staff for the trip around the world. I think one of the bags I bought might make one more trip to Nepal, then be too worn out. I'd rather this wear out instead of my pack, though! The zippers work great, the straps hold up (but aren't very comfortable), the stitching looks good, and the material is much heavier duty than the Osprey duffels that I looked at.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat for international travelI bought this bag in about 2005 and have used it extensively for overseas travel on over a dozen trips. Other than a few scuffed areas and a small tear it is still in great shape. It has done its job and has taken the abuse away from my good backpacks and gear. Other plus is that it looks like a cheap duffle bag, allows you to use a TSA lock and so far I have not had any gear stolen.

    Rated2out of5byfromWrong dimensionsProduct seems very sturdy - looks like it would do a good job of protecting a pack -- I'll give it a few stars for that. However the dimensions listed do not match the dimensions of the product I picked up in the store. The dimensions are listed as 36" x 16" x 12" but the bag actually measures out to 31" x 16" x 12" - not quite enough for my 35" pack frame. The store and customer support both seem to back up my measurement as well. Not sure if they've changed the size on it, or this is a bad batch or what the reason is...

    Rated4out of5byfromSturdyWas excellent for keeping my backpack protected during air travel to and from our hiking destination. Sturdy and will hold up to the roughest baggage handlers at the airport. Folds in on itself for easy packing, but is a bit heavy and bulky to carry along on the trail. We left ours at the guide office and used it as a "suitcase" to store extra items we brought along that we did not want to carry for a week in the backcountry.

    Rated5out of5byfromPeace of mindUsed this duffel to protect my backpack on a trip to France over the summer. Not only did the bag protect my very expensive backpack it also still looks like went through 4 airports and came back in one peace. At times I was so tired that I was literally dragging it through the thermal, not one hole or any sign of it tearing anytime soon or if at all. My only complaint (like some other reviews) is the shoulder strap dose not easily detach. However this is havely outwaieged by the peace of mind I get from this bag. Don't waist your time with anything else.

    Rated5out of5byfromCouldn't have made the trip without thesMy family of five was headed to the Sierra for backpacking, and I couldn't quite figure out how we should manage airline travel with backpacks and other gear and clothes for the car portion of our sightseeing. I took a chance and bought five of these duffels. We could not have been happier with the outcome. Each duffel has enough room for an 80L pack along with extra shoes and clothes. The packed bags were easy to stack on airport carts and maneuver through the airport. Bag dimensions are small enough to count as a standard (not oversized) bag for check in. The bags also worked well when car camping and long car trips, as we could keep each family member's gear nicely separated. The bags seemed more than tough enough for our purposes.

    Rated5out of5byfromWorked great to ship backpacks on planeSeveral of our Scouts travelling to Philmont used these for shipping our backpacks on the airplane. Worked great and kept everything together - even after the hike when items were hanging off the pack instead of inside. Better peace of mind versus using clear bags and duct tape. Can slide a small TSA lock with the zipper and ring on the bag.

    Rated4out of5byfromWorks WellI used this product to protect my backpack when checking it through air travel when going to New Mexico for a backpacking trip. It was perfectly sized for my Deuter AirContact 60 +10 L pack. However, when I expanded the pack to 70L it took a bit of effort to zip the duffel. I would imagine that if your bag runs tall or is bigger than 75L that it wouldn't fit very well. It would be very helpful to make the duffel taller to accommodate larger packs.
