    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 Bag is rated 4.3636 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Used this duffel as a cover for my backpack on a flight to Europe. Worked perfectly in that capacity. Compresses into a tiny space when not in use. On the return trip, used it as a duffel bag for clothes that needed to be washed as well as a cover for my then-empty backpack. It held all my clothes, my wife's clothes, some of another traveler's clothes, as well as toiletries and a few gift items. When I retrieved it at the baggage carousel, it looked just like it looked when I loaded it for the first time. A great product for the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great to ship backpacks on plane Several 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enormous! ENORMOUS. We haven't used this at the airport yet, but getting ready and packed this bag up with a Deuter Ventura 50 +10 (somewhat filled), a full day pack, Empty packs to include a Deuter Fox 40, an Osprey Ace 48 and REI Meteor, and there is still enough room I could fit another day pack in the end or a sleeping bag. I wasn't expecting this to be so large. But glad it is, because we can take all the hiking packs on the plane instead of mailing them! Let's hope it holds up at the airport. My one complaint is that it only has one zipper pull, so I'm not sure how locking it will go. But there appears to be a plastic loop ideally placed to meet with the zipper pull to attach the lock to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind Used 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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wrong dimensions Product 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...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't have made the trip without thes My 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well I 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy Was 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.
