    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.

    • Simply fill the bottle with tap water, screw the cap on and start sipping; the integrated plant-based carbon filter reduces chlorine taste and odors found in tap water
    • Filter is good for up to 3 mos. and is an easy way to enjoy tap water rather than purchasing disposable bottles of water
    • CamelBak Groove Filter bottle should be used to improve the taste of safe water sources only; filter does not remove viruses, bacteria or protozoa from water
    • Made of Eastman Tritan™ copolyester, the bottle is completely BPA-free and is dishwasher safe (do not put filter in the dishwasher)
    • Tritan copolyester provides excellent impact resistance and is suitable for both warm and cold beverages
    • Bypass the potential hazards of drinking from wide openings—the CamelBak Groove bite valve virtually eliminates spills
    • Just bite and sip and the beverage flows through the valve—you don't even need to tip the bottle to drink
    • Bite valve has an articulating stem, so when not in use it folds down next to the bottle and stays clean
    • Carry the integrated handle in the crook of a finger, or connect it to a pack or waistbelt with a small carabiner, not included

    Please note: CamelBak products can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

    by fromFunky After taste Not sure if I got a bad filter, but this bottle gives a bad aftertaste. I have the older style better bottle without filter and there is not after taste.

    by fromDissapointed So after buying this bottle, I rushed home to use it. I put the filter in and washed it out a couple of times...Now I had recently bought a ZeroWater filter which came with a TDS Tester. So I tested the water that came out of my water bottle (it was hard to get out but I did) and it was 60! That's not good! The water from my tap tested 40 and the water from ZeroWater filter tested is what I want...any comments? Does it take awhile?

    by fromMore trouble than it's worth I'm not really sure I understand the purpose of this bottle. I guess if you live in an area where your water tastes bad there may be some benefit to filtering it. I didn't really notice any major difference between my San Francisco tap water and the filtered version. The bottle leaks slightly. I find that using the mouthpiece feels very unnatural and almost irritating. The cleaning instructions are rather extensive in their detail. I'm all in favor of putting an end to serial bottle usage and resulting waste but this isn't a product I could recommend. I'd prefer a plain bottle with a tight-fitting lid.

    by fromNot for well water We have well water that has a sulfur smell and iron/metallic taste. The filter so far is 50/50 for taste. Some days, presumably after our water has ran for a while, the filter does great and my water tastes excellent. At work, same situation; the water fountain is from well water with a very metallic taste, too strong for the filter to handle. I go into the ladies room, let the water run for a minute (i know, i know, i hate wasting all that water too...) and then fill the container and the filter works decent removing most of the bad taste. Conclusion: not so great for well water, better to buy something with a stronger filter intended for removing particles. For the price, and the fact that I can use it in airports, most of the time at home, and anytime I'm out and about I'm still glad I bought it.

    by fromCan be good, depending on your needs. I intended on using this product at work, when I go to the climbing gym and for travel, since I fly 4-8 times a month. I had gotten this as a gift this past December and upon using it, it constantly sucked up bubbles/air with the water and leaked horribly when placed sideways even when it was closed or tipped. I looked at the lid, looked on the Camelback website and did what I could to keep it from leaking (checked the little valve, but it didn't stop, so I returned it and got a new bottle at REI. After using my new bottle here are a few things I realized: - If you fly/go to high altitudes keep in mind that this is wear and tear on the bottle and it can mess with it's leak-proofness. If you read the manual, they recommend that you keep the bottle upright and that there could be water spurts. DO NOT leave it sideways - this will lead to a pool of water whereever you leave it! - The water sometimes tastes filtered, and after using it for several months, i sometimes felt a minor irritation in my throat due to the charcoal. It went away after the filter was used 4-5x. Otherwise, I thought the water tasted fine. - Capacity is small, but camelback expects that you fill up the bottle 3-4x a day. Due to my water situation at work, I tend to tolerate a lot and this has helped me drink more water. Hopefully second time is a charm and that this new bottle lasts!

    by fromOK, as long as you don't bike Purchased to improve taste of water at rest stops, parks, etc. BUT it doesn't fit into a standard size water bottle cage on a bike, so not very useful to us.

    by fromSo far so good I've been a fan of the classic .5L Camelbak for years, and apparently my son was paying attention when I'd mention trying to drink while walking or hiking and spilling on myself. I was leery of these straw bottles and keeping them clean enough to prevent mold. I'm pretty impressed on how it can be disassembled & run thru the dishwasher for cleaning & sanitizing. No problems with leakage or spilling so far.

    by fromReally enjoy this water bottle This is the second CamelBak bite valve bottle I have purchased. Few years back I bought my first (non-filtered edition), but found after a few months it became too moldy to salvage. Using my member dividend I bought this water bottle because my girlfriend uses it and loved the filter. Indeed water does taste better, let's just hope I can keep this on from the same fate as the last.
