    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.

    Kelty Yukon 48 External Frame Packis rated5.0out of5by1.
    Rated5out of5byfromThe Timex of BackpackingThis design has been around for a long time and for good reason. Doesn't get much attention these days, but it should. I do use an Osprey during the warm months, but the Yukon is my go to cold weather and hunting pack because it handles weight better than any internal frame. I tried the Baltoro which is a good pack, but went back to the tried and true Yukon. The Yukon is typically thought of as a boyscout pack. It works great for that because it's easy to load and bears weight well. However this pack is very viable for adults. Adjusts to a large range of torso sizes. With sleep system and tent strapped to the outside that leaves a lot of internal capacity. Love the organization and access offered by the external pockets. The bottle pocket easily holds my 40oz Klean Kanteen and GSI cup.Has great back ventilation. Does an excellent job of transfering weight to the hips. Super durable. Mine has countless miles on it and shows no signs of weakness. Holds to the body securely, but wouldn't be my first choice for extra vigorous activity. However, this is a great long hauler. I strongly prefer the closed cell padding on older models (shoulder and belt straps). They're more durable and confortable than the newer ones, but that brings up another nice feature.... they are easily replaceable. The real downside of the external frame for me is they're not great for travel within civilization, but that's not what they are made for. IMHO this is a great pack for beginners and experienced backpackers who want a pack that can handle loads. When I'm not using it, I keep it packed as my INCH (I'm never coming home) pack in case of major disaster.
