    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.

    Patagonia Friction Belt is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome belt, awesome product I bought this belt over two years ago one summer when I was working at a Kids Summer camp leading wilderness trips. This belt was worth every single cent. I'm a waist 30"-32" and it fits perfectly, its very durable webbing. Slight freying of the webbing near the buckle (but thats general wear and tear). I've never had a belt like this that could be used on the trail for tying something down or in my case, I wrapped it around a bathroom door handle while we we're taking shelter in the bathroom from a tornado. That door wanted to open to that storm but that belt held that door closed shut. So i guess you could say this belt kinda saved my life...definitely worth what they charge!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable and Light I wear this product when I won't want my leather belts to get ruined by water or when I want something lighter. I use it when I'm working at the brewery and also when i climb and hike. One caution is sometimes it rides up and can feel sharp on skin. But with that said it only happens on one of my pairs of pants otherwise I love the thing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from True to its reviews I bought this belt to replace the lame belt that came with my otherwise very nice Mountain Hardwear Mesa convertible hiking pants. The belt they supplied was extremely light in weight, but equally light in maintaining its cinch. Constantly had to re-cinch on the trail.The Friction Belt is slightly heavier, but well worth it because IT DOES NOT MOVE once you adjust it. Just what you need when hiking or packing a heavy pack over rough terrain. I can't wait to take it to the mountains.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple quality belt with a little style Product as stated on the REI is accurate. The webbing is sturdy but not too rigid and the buckle has a bit more style than some "techy" belts. I usually buy a medium women's belt so I had to cut about 4" off the belt with the following method: Using a sharp scissors cut the belt to the desired length (I also eased the pointy tip on the belt's end a bit). Then using the cal rod element on an electric stove (set to medium) you can re-melt and seal the edges. If you haven't done this before practice on the scrap end you've cut off. The plastic left on the element can be quickly wiped off with a rag and left on a bit to "burn off" the bit left behind. This method works much better than using a lighter :0). Look for it in the men's department; my local REI store didn't stock it in the women's area.
