    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromBest featers in a light strong package Wire gates are the best for slings and draws in my book. But they can be finiky to mess with when the nose catches. In steps the Hoodwire, basically BD's Hotwire with proven strength, handeling and durability modified with another wire to keep from catching the nose. Much better price than the Wild Country Helium (good biner) and larger than the Petzl Ange which is too small to work with.

    by fromBest Wire gate out there for the $ Got 4 of these to test out on the hanger side of some of my draws, and they meet and exceeded my expectations. Only a gram heavier than the neutrino but you don't ever notice it and is WELL WORTH the snagless feature. Better handling than the neutrino because of the hot forging and the way they crimp the wire slightly at the top makes the gate a little less slippery in the fingers. I would def say if you are piecing together draws these would be my 1st choice for the hanger side, since they are cheaper than any other snagless option and as light as some.
