    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.

    Gerber Gator Machete is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I have owned a lot of Gerber products, and this product lives up to the quality I've come to know and expect from Gerber. I go camping in the deep woods and use this to clear brush and make my own trails. Works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid construction and a great saw! Not sure if REI relizes that this is categorized under "Grilling", but I don't recommend cooking with this machete ;-) The warnings that come with this machete warn the owner not to saw anything thicker than 1" in diameter. I'm sure it is for safety reasonsas I was sawing 6" - 8" logs with no problem! I didn't have to use it to clear any paths, but with its size and weight, I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem! Overall a great product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Agreed I agree with the other high rated comments as I've used this over 4 or 5 outings. I'd guess best machete for the price. For me the saw on the back is a huge plus and it dose a good job for task larger then typical machete task. I have cut some 5 to 9 inch hardwood of fallen trees into manageable logs for firewood and it did the job well and surprisingly well & faster then I originally thought we first starting to use the saw.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from loose handle After hacking through a ton of blackberries and other brush for a few months, the blade in the handle became loose and the machete was not effective. The blade loosened within the grip and rattled around causing wrist pain. Tightening the rivets was not easy and did not fix the problem. I ended up returning it and buying a different machete at a knife shop for about $50. Also, the sheath only has the velcro bit at the top, and cannot be hooked onto a beltloop with a carabiner. I only tried to use the saw a couple of times, but it wasn't that easy to use on hardwoods.
