    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.

    Kuhl Renegade Shorts - Men's 12" Inseam is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I am preparing to leave on an indefinite, worldwide backpacking trip. My goal is to pack as light as possible and so I wanted to find the perfect pair of shorts to be my workhorse. Other than my gym shorts, these guys will be it. With that in mind, I purchased the Kuhl Renegade shorts, size 32. I have bigger legs than most men, so i usually have trouble with shorts. Even though my waist is a 32, if available, I will purchase a 33. Well, Kuhl doesn't sell a 33 in these, so I took a chance and went with the 32. On first wear, the shorts felt a little snug. They fit properly, but I wasn't used to the fit of the waist. I told myself to give it a chance for a few days and see if it was something that I could get used to. Thankfully, I was able to break the shorts in, and now they feel perfect. The sizing is just right. They are long enough to be fashionable and loose enough to be comfortable. But that's just the's why you should buy these shorts: -Extremely light -Very comfortable. Fabric is soft and somewhat stretchy which allows for freedom of movement. -Many pockets including 2 zipper pockets. -Look great. I can't speak to the durability, but time will tell. I can tell you this. For my purposes, I have never owned or come across a more perfect pair of shorts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts i've ever owned I wear these shorts everywhere! I will buy another pair ASAP. The shorts are soo comfortable and they produce the nicest breeze; next to wearing nothing. I fully recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stretchy lightweight shorts I am 6'1" tall 150lbs, I have a 32 inch waist but I purchased a 30inch waist size since as with most manufacturers Kuhl wants people to believe they are skinnier than they are. Length falls just above my knee. They fit well/cleanly with the exception of a rather long crotch. Easy movement due to the lightweight stretchy material. I like the styling and the function, enough pockets, but not too bulky and not too many. The cell/accessory pocket will let things fall out easily if your knee goes above your hip, so be ware. Excellent weight for summer climbing/hiking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Pair of Shorts HIGHLY RECOMMMEND. I've got the dark grey ones and they're FANTASTIC. I tested A LOT of shorts and these were BY FAR the best. I wear them EVERYWHERE. The only thing is that they stretch as you get active. I'm normally a size 31, and the 32s quickly became loose, so I got the 30s and, while SLIGHTLY tight out of the dryer, within an hour they're PERFECT.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Renegade Shorts These are my new favorite shorts. They are incredibly comfortable and not restrivitive in any way. They are a little long and just a touch baggy, but that is exactly what I like in a pair of shorts for everyday/walking/casual hiking use. The biggest issue is the price. All Kuhl products are crazy expensive. The one consolation is that Kuhl products are also high quality. If you take of their cloths they will last for a very long time. I gave a 4 star rating b/c the price stole one star from a fabulous product

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shorts I would highly recommend this product. Living in Texas with all the hot summer days, I am very comfortable in my Kuhl shorts, in fact they are a lot cooler than cotton shorts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great shorts These shorts are great. I just spent 3 days wearing them to a volleyball tournament in Florida where it was extremely hot and they were very breathable, and confortable. I wore them for my 19 hour drive back to Michigan and they were very confortable. The two pockets on the sides are great to hold your cell phone or change. I'm going to buy another pair now.
