    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.

    Rated5out of5byfromExcellent pair of BoxersThese boxers were my first pair. I thought they would be uncomfortable, but they are the best thing I have bought for my bike rides. I started riding three months ago and love it, the boxers make it more comfortable to be on the bike.

    Rated5out of5byfromgreat product for the priceWore on bicycle trip from Pittsburgh to DC, where I wanted to ware cargo shorts for pocket storage of gear. Also wanted to be better dressed for sight seeing and going into restaurants. Excellent fit, very comfortable, for 50 mile rides and sight seeing. Drys very fast after washing, and comfort exceeded my expectations. Will buy again when needed.

    Rated4out of5byfromExcellent qualityI am a daily bike commuter and wear these liners under my Endura shorts and GORE softshell knickers. These liners are a bit better than the stock liners that came with the shorts, and are much better than my Canari liners. The quality is good and they dry quickly.

    Rated4out of5byfromcomfyVery comfy on the bike. I love that I can wear shorts with pockets and still get the padded comfort. Not so comfy off the saddle, but that's normal for padded shorts.

    Rated3out of5byfromok not greatI recently purchased the Novara Padded Cycle Boxers - Men's at my local REI store. I took up mountain biking in addition to me road cycling and wanted to use regular shorts for mountain biking. I bought these hoping I could use them in place of padded bike shorts. The shorts have a 4-way stretch polyester/spandex mesh that does feel dry and comfortable against the skin. They do get damp from riding. They are Gender-specific with a pre-curved chamois which conforms to body contours; the channel-designed, low-bulk, open-cell foam provides some comfort in the saddle. Soft elastic waistband and turned self-fabric leg openings provide a comfortable fit. The Flat-stitched side seams do prevent chafing; I did not get any chaffing while wearing them. I found that they do not offer the padding of "bike shorts". I ended up buying Navarro mountain bike shorts and prefer to wear them instead. I do wear them with my regular padded bike shorts on longer rides. They are ok for short rides and handy to have in your bag or when traveling. I would buy them again and have recommended them to my wife, the ladies type. For me they are best for doubling up my padding on longer rides. I know using them in tandem with other shorts is looked down on by purists but hey it's my derriere in the saddle and d sometimes any help is appreciated. These shorts are actually sized appropriately for American consumers. I am a size 34 and the large fit a little large. I could have used a size medium. Most bike stuff is sized European and usually sized at least one size too small but these larges are large.
