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.

Comments about Arc'teryx R280 Climbing Harness - Women's:
This harness lives up to the hype.
It packs down small
It breathes well
It's comfy to hang in and belay in
I've only used it in gym, so I can't speak to its serviceability outdoors
The only con in my book is the sizing issue.
I had to return and repurchase 3 times! Based on my measurements(waist 27" legs 19"), and trying on a mens 2010 small which was huge on me, I purchased an X-small.
The x-small did not even make it over my hips (rather ridiculous as I have narrow hips).
I returned it and purchased a size small. This time the harness made it over my hips, but was uncomfortably tight for long term wear. Wearing more than a single layer under it would have been impossible.
I returned a second time and am now comfortably seated in a medium.
The measurements for a medium are listed as
"Medium fits waist 28.5 - 31.5 in., leg 22 - 24in." This is significantly larger than my own measurements. Size up 1 - 2 sizes when ordering!
Service and delivery comments:
Item arrived within 5 days (with standard shipping) and was in perfect condition.
Customer service for returning and repurchasing was ace as always. (Especially considering I used 3 different sources to pay: store credit, membership discount, and a credit card) The membership discount had expired by the third time I returned, but they still honored it. I love REI's return policy.
For an item like a harness, which is weight bearing, most stores do not allow returns. REI does not resell the returned merchandise and instead eats the cost. Sure that cost is transferred to the consumer in other ways, but the ultimate outcome, that I managed to get a harness that fit me perfectly (and didn't end up buying 3 harnesses on a student budget) makes it totally worth it.
