    REI Members get back an estimated $ 10.00 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.

    Great for camping and emergency use, the hand-powered SteriPEN Sidewinder water purifier requires no batteries and is capable of purifying 1 liter of water in just 90 sec.

    • Sidewinder purifier does away with pumping, chemicals, test strips, extended timekeeping and filters; leaves no aftertaste, will not clog and does not require lubrication
    • Sidewinder is simple to use: just fill the included 1 liter bottle with water, screw it onto the Sidewinder purifier, flip the unit over and start cranking
    • Small LEDs indicate when purification is complete; purifies 1 liter (32 fl. oz.) of water (cold or warm) in a minute and a half
    • Innovative SteriPEN system uses UV light rays instead of chemicals to purify water for drinking
    • Ultraviolet (UV-C) light rays safely sterilize clear water by destroying 99.99% of protozoa (including Giardia and Cryptosporidia), bacteria and even viruses
    • Long used by municipal water districts and bottling companies, low-level UV-C light treats water safely, and unit's light will not damage eyes or skin when used properly
    • SteriPEN protects you from risks that cause botulism, cholera, dysentery and typhoid, just to name a few
    • Operates best with clear water, but if that's not available, no worries—the SteriPEN prefilter clears particulates and debris from water
    • Prefilter fits the included 1 liter bottle and other water bottles with 63mm wide-mouth openings; pour source water through filter, and clean water enters bottle
    • SteriPEN UV lamp provides up to 8,000 treatments
    • Includes SteriPEN Sidewinder water purifier, prefilter, 1 liter water bottle and instruction manuals; water bottle is made with BPA-free Tritan™ copolyester

    Since late 2008, all SteriPEN water sensors feature twice the electrode voltage of older models. The increased electrical current flow allows proper function in water with low conductivity such as snowmelt and even mineral-free distilled water.
