    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.

    Petzl GRIGRI 2 Belay Device is rated 4.4286 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does it's job So far it's done the job of auto-locking. I only break it out if I'm feeling tired after a day of climbing or my climber is on a long climb. I prefer to use the ATC whenever possible. I find it harder to pay out rope when using this on lead climbs and for that reason usually use the ATC instead. Lowering can be a little jumpy until you get used to the lower mechanism. All in all it's a well made product that does it's job and provides some piece of mind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is great! I got 2 of these to replace the older model that we have at the camp I work at. After using the older model and a different brand, this gri gri felt amazing to use. They are smaller and lighter which is always a plus. I think they flipped the handle around on the knew one so its easier to get to. Over all its a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety First I've been an ATC until I die kind of guy, until I got this handy little piece of gear. I love the fact that it catches a falling climbing partner on its own, though it does not mean it is an "I can take my hand of the braking side of the rope and take off my shoes" piece of equipment. I've witnessed this in the gym before, don't do it. This is a 'brainless' belay device but only when used with a brain as a back-up safety device. It does take some getting used to when feeding rope out on a lead climb but once you start getting the hang of it you should have no problem throwing out enough slack for your partner to clip. Taking on it is really nice, takes a lot of pressure off of your hands when working on a route. You can let your partner hang and read the route without ruining your chances of trying it again. All in all this piece of equipment is a great addition to any rack and its safety features could save a life, just read some of the Accidents in North American Mountaineering reports. Learn how to use it properly (as with any climbing gear) and the Gri-Gri will never treat you wrong. Smooth, simple and brilliant. I love this thing and you will too. Get one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for some This is one of the best top topping devices you can use. It is much smaller and half the weight of the original which makes it easier to use outdoors. I found it is particularly good at ascending because it allows you to stop and hang. It is difficult to feed line out of it in a lead climb as it tends to lock as you pull. Good for beginners, the auto lock gives them more confidence. All in all solid belay. Repelling can be choppy though and it doesn't provide much friction so my hand always got to hot even at slow speeds. It also cannot do any double rope functions so on longer trips it might be better to use a device with more utility.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better handling I use the grigri2 for guiding and personally. It is a more versatile device than its predecessor with better handling characteristics, both in use as a belay device and a setup tool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Climbers must have item! I waited really long before I purchased this item. Once I got a chance to use it I really have fallen in love with this climbing must! I wish I would have purchased it when I first started climbing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great belay device I love it. This is a great belay device. It has a little more friction when taking in rope than a atc but the auto blocking makes my partner feel more comfortable when belaying. I haven't tried it out lead climbing yet, but will soon.
