    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.

    The North Face Prophet 52 Packis rated3.8out of5by5.
    Rated1out of5byfromDidn't hold up well so far!Design wise, I love this pack. But I need to really depend on my gear, and unfortunately, after just a few uses, the stitching came undone that holds together one of the shoulder straps. I was on an extended trip in Utah, so had to do a field repair with seam grip, which seems to be (barely) holding so far. (I won't mention how it looks...) I can't give up the pack during the very busy summer hiking season to send back to NF for repair (4-6 weeks min), so I'm probably going to have to live with the problem. Sad to see this with NF gear, which is typically great. Especially on an expensive top-end pack like this.

    Rated3out of5byfromGood BackpackI use this backpack for strenuous day hikes. It is lightweight and holds everything I need to spend up to 3 uncomfortable nights in the wilderness. Just got back from day hike of Mt. Whitney and I was glad I took this pack. One word of warning, small items can fall through the expansion slots on the bottom corners of the external pockets !

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat lightweight pack!The Prophet 52 is a great all-around mountaineering and hiking pack. I've used this as a day pack on Shasta and Whitney so far and it has been the ideal pack for both. I can fit quite a lot of gear and food in it and it's lightweight construction makes it manageable to wear on extended hikes or climbs. The crampon pocket in the front is also a nice feature so you don't have to shred the rest of your gear by storing them inside the pack when you're not using them.
