    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 Backpacker Pillow is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Washing instructions My boyfriend and I both have one of these pillows that we take with us backpacking - it makes for a much more pleasant night sleep. And because it's down, it's warm if you camp in cooler/colder temps. One note: I couldn't find washing instructions so contacted REI and was told this: You can wash the entire pillow in your machine on gentle. You will want to use a "non detergent" wash. Something like this would be perfect: Please click the link to view

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lumpy Pillow I am just getting into backpacking and need ALL the gear. I shopped around for some different pillows and thought this one was a good price compared to another set up I was looking at. When I got the pillow and went to test it out at home I turned it inside out but could only get it half way and could barely get it back it. It felt like the thing was just stuffed with cotton balls and was lumpy. I fiddled with it for a max of 5 minutes and said forget it! Took it back to the store. You get what you pay for and so I am going to be going with the more expensive set up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great addition for my stiff neck As a Cub Scout leader the one thing I often forgot was a pillow or when car camping I brought a pillow that was just too large. In trying to reduce what I carry into the woods as a Troop leader I could not do without a pillow so I had to find something that was small, easily compressed and would give good support. This pillow fits all three requirements very well. I gave it a very high rating because it does what it is supposed to do and it meets my expectations. It is not a fluffy, curl up and hug pillow but a "support for your head and neck to give you a comfortable night's sleep" pillow. It easily stores within itself and has a durable, soft cover. My only caution is after washing make certain it is dry before rolling it up to store or to head to the trail. Before my first outing and after bringing it home from the store I washed it and thought I had it thoroughly dry. Wrong! When I hit the sack and drew the pillow to my head I discovered that compressing it had released some additional water the stuffing was holding. But because of how it was rolled only one side was damp and I suffered very little for my mistake. The second night was much more comfortable. It also takes a while for the pillow to reach full expansion after being compressed so if you are staying put for more than one night go ahead and unroll the pillow as early as possible to let it reach its full size and firmness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable This is a great little pillow! It compresses down into a little stuff sack which is sewn into the pillow, so that makes it easy to transport and keep clean. It is a little hard to get it back into the sack, but that's fine. I probably wouldn't bring this backpacking, but for car camping is wonderful! I slept so well on this pillow. It was very comfortable, just the right balance between firm & soft, and it fit perfectly into the hood of my mummy bag.
