    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.

    • Polarized lenses reduce 99% of visible glare from water, snow, sand and pavement for increased visual acuity and decreased eye strain
    • Each frame includes 1 set of polarized lenses (tint depends on frame color) and 2 additional sets of lenses for a total of 3 sets of lenses
    • Brown frames feature polarized brown lenses that block reflected glare while providing increased depth perception and reducing eye strain
    • Black frames feature polarized gray lenses that block reflected glare while preserving natural colors in order to provide true color definition
    • Non-polarized, additional lenses are ideal for low and medium to nighttime light
    • Scratch- and impact-resistant Carbonic™ lenses use Tapered Lens Technology from Smith™ to provide distortion-free vision
    • Tapered Lens Technology contours the thickness of the lens so that light travels through without distortion—what you see is what you get
    • Grilamid® TR90 lightweight nylon frames offer a consistent fit and flexibility in all temperatures and are extremely impact resistant
    • Hydrophilic Megol™ nosepiece and temple ends become tackier when wet for reliable grip during exercise and hot weather
    • 9-base-curve lenses; (the higher the number the more curved the lens—Smith features sunglasses with 6, 7, 8 and 9 base curvature)
    • Frames have a medium fit with large coverage

    Smith Parallel Max Polarized Sunglasses - Men'sis rated4.25out of5by4.
    Rated4out of5byfromGreat!These are great for cycling and all outdoor activities!

    Rated4out of5byfromSweet shadesI use these sunglasses for everything: biking, hiking, driving, skiing. They are comfortable, lightweight, and give good coverage. Mostly I use the gray lenses, but the rose lenses are good in lower light, and the clears are good for Mt Biking. The lenses are easy to change out. They do seem to scratch easier than other lenses I have had. The replacement lenses (from Smith) are way overpriced. They offer many different colors, but I wish they would offer a dark gray lens with lower light transmission so that I could use them as glacier glasses.

    Rated4out of5byfromClose to perfectI use these glasses to run and bike. I use the clear lenses to keep my eyes from drying out when I run in the pre-light hours. The darker lenses are ALMOST as good as my very expensive Maui Jims (that's saying alot since MJ sunglasses are the best imo). I was looking for a pair of interchangeable glasses with at least a set of clear lenses (for pre-dawn and night running) and polarized dark lenses. These fit the bill. They are more expensive than the Tifosi Slips but since they have everything I wanted and are more comfortable than the Slips AND because they cover enough of my eye area to keep the wind out (something the Slips didn't do). . .it was totally worth it. These glasses do fog ever so slightly on the edges on very cold days when you stop moving and have really worked up a sweat. But once you start moving. . .they clear up immediately. I would totally buy these again if they were ever lost or damaged.
