    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.

    by fromGood pack for short trips First let me say that I am 6'7" so most of my stuff is big. The sleeping bag compartment on this pack is not very large and would not take my mummy bag. I ended up having to place it in the center compartment and move my other items around. However, it is a very comfortable pack and I will probably give this one to my son and purchase a larger one. When I go to purchase the nextone I am taking my Slpg bag w/me.

    by fromBetter than average beginner pack I had a Lafuma Right Road 50 + 10 ('08), which I only used a few times. Quite a few straps broke and the overall fit was not ergonomic or helpful for heavy loads. I decided to make use of REI's 100% satisfaction guarantee and swap it up for a better pack. At the store I tried on quite a few mid-to-high priced packs (Osprey, REI) and found that this Gregory was an automatic fit for my body type. The lumbar support is great and the amount and placement of straps allow precise adjustment. I just recently got back from backpacking Havasu Falls in Arizona and after taking this pack on 20 miles of trekking I can say it's a good all-around pack. I found that I could make adjustments easily to put more weight on my hips when my shoulders were tired and vice-versa. My only complaints are: 1. The front pocket of the pack got a small tear from something, which I ended up taping inside w/ duct tape to reinforce. So, it's not as tough as Gregoy claims. 2. No rain cover for the pack is included. 3. Not sure if straps were missing or just not included for sectioning off the bottom part of the pack.

    by fromProud Gregory owner This is my 2nd Baltoro in 5 years. The first one had a sewing defect and was gladly replaced by Gregory...Thanks guys! This pack has completed the John Muir Trail, Lost Coast Trail, 3 Weeks in Denali NP, Mt.Shasta, Mt.Rainier, dozens of multi day treks throughout the Sierra and coast ranges of California, and hundreds of short treks. As a 55 year old backpacker, doing this for 40 plus years, this is the most comfortable pack I've owned! The suspension system is designed so well it is comfortable with all loads and moderate weights, <50#. It is highly versatile for lashing and adding accessories, easily loaded and accessible. A couple of knocks...The top pocket zipper goes not hold up well when stressed and stuffed. I know, shouldn't do that, sometimes you have too! Lots of openings for water to seep in requiring a rain cover or bagging the inside gear. The sleeping bag compartment is sized for a 3 season down bag or summer weight poly bag only. No adjustable divider for compressing the bag.

    by fromGreat pack! This is an overall great pack. I bought it for comfort, and it has done the job. I love the many pockets available for organizing and storage. It also has a sturdy build - I expect to be using this pack for years. The design is very well thought out as well with all kinds of conveniences for hikers that other bags neglect. My ONLY complaint is the weight, but I knew I was accepting more weight to get the extra comfort. I highly recommend this bag unless you need ultra-light equipment.

    by fromSplendid pack I first bought the Deuter Aircontact. Horrible fit - you can read my review on it. Exchanged it for this pack - wow, huge difference. I have zero complaints about this bag. Fits like a glove. Would buy again.

    by fromExcellent comfort and support... Gregory knows how to make packs! I tried lots of different packs on at the local REI and this one stood out for comfort by far. Sure, it is a bit on the heavy side when empty but the weight is in thicker padding alone. Which means a very comfortable pack that can take heavy loads with no problems. My comfort is high on my list when backpacking and a good pack makes the biggest impact on that. Try them all on! You'll see what I mean when you load the Baltoro up with 40lbs.

    by fromBoy, is this pack comfortable! Many of my ultralight friends laugh at me for carrying a 6 lb pack. But I can wear it all day with a 40 lb load and still be comfortable. I reduce weight where possible, but I'm not a fanatic - a "gram weenie." A comfortable pack is not something I'm willing to give up. Plus, the customizable suspension ensures you can make the pack fit fit you, instead of vice versa.

    by fromFantastic Product I have used this product in many different environments. I have used it backpacking in Missouri during a winter storm, it stayed in igloos and survived general cold weather abuse. I have also used this while deployed to Iraq to carry my kit as I travel from place to place. It has also served very well as a pack on my travels to and from the states. This pack has help up very well with all of the abuse I have given it. Not a single tare, blown zipper or friction burn. This bag is of excellent quality and surprisingly nimble. The pack is slightly heavy but that is really negligible compared to the benefits.The independent suspension waist belt changed my mind forever on pack mounting systems. The pack almost becomes an extension of yourself, it feels natural.
