    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 Deviceis rated4.4286out of5by21.
    Rated5out of5byfromgreat buyMy wife and I just started rock climbing and both started out with just an ATC but she never felt super comfortable with it and i never felt super comfortable with her belaying me with it cause it was always very jerky. We got the Gri Gri 2 and both love it. it was super easy to learn and my wife now lowers me much more smoothly. I have seen others say it is hard to learn to use but i thought just the opposite. even my wife whom has no mechanical know how figured it out in seconds.

    Rated4out of5byfromAn Improvement in the Next GenGreat for long days of belay and long climbs. the hole for carabeeners is a little small and fits only round beeners

    Rated4out of5byfromWorks as expectedI got this belay device as a gift to my wife (I'm a happy owner of Gri Gri 1). She didn't like this new version, so I exchanged it with her. We are using both models now.

    Rated5out of5byfromThis 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.

    Rated4out of5byfromDoes it's jobSo 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.

    Rated4out of5byfromEasy to use - just don't lose!I use the Grigri for almost everything - even rappelling if I need to. Having the auto-locking feature is probably the biggest strength and makes it worth the extra $60 or so. Such a convenience if you need to make a small adjustment, grab a sip of water, or itch a mosquito bite (I know, I know, your attention should be fastidiously on the climber, however). When lowering someone (or yourself when rappelling), it takes a bit of practice to operate it smoothly. It's a millimeter difference between a relaxing smooth belay and an adrenaline-pumping speed drop sort of thing. Be careful! Also, the maneuver to remove the Grigri from the rope can sometimes be a little consuming. Just be careful not to drop it on a multi-pitch!

    Rated4out of5byfromWorth it for added safetyTook a bit to get used to, but according to my climbing partners, it gives a "smooth ride." I like knowing that if something happens, the auto lock is there as a back up. It can be easy to load it backwards if you're not paying attention - it makes for a slightly different safety check before climbing, but the pictures on the device make it easy.

    Rated4out of5byfromGrigri has a place on my rackI purchased the grigri because I wanted a safer method of belaying on top of multipitch routes. Sadly, that is the only time I will ever use it. . . . I have used it on three seperate occasions and find it difficult to maintain constant lowering speeds. I guess I just love my atc!
