    Item # 799009

    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong trowel Strong and works well

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from the last shovel you'll ever buy I may have used every trowel out there and this is the one I like best. It's much stronger than the old orange ones; I've abused mine for over a year now and it still hasn't cracked. I like the green color which is much less obvious than the orange, and I like that it's made from recycled material. It's simple and has no moving parts to malfunction or break; it has no itty bitty plastic parts that can get lost in the woods. Most importantly: it's inexpensive, lightweight and reliable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product This product is a backpacking trowel for waste disposal. My only complaint is that the color of the trowel is too dark.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! A cheap alternative to the other trowels out there and does the job well. Used extensively on my recent 21 day backpacking trip of the John Muir Trail. Very sturdy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It Works, Butt... This worked well for three weeks straight with no problems. My next trip I woke up the next morning and in a hurry went to dig a hole in some reasonably soft Rocky Mountain soil, rocky but loose, and the shovel broke. I'm sure I hit a rock which broke it but it seemed too easy still. It's not a bad shovel and will take care of you if you take care of it but I'd rather go with a collapsable metal shovel to avoid a repeat.
