    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for curvy gals I bought these pants, looking for a softshell at last to xc ski in. The fit is perfect�??I love REI pants because the designers understand that many women who like to play outside have serious glutes and quads. I have a small waist and am perpetually looking for pants that don't gap; these do just the trick. It snowed all day yesterday, and with a pair of long johns underneath, I stayed warm and dry, and never overheated. I do agree that they stretched out a bit by the end of the day, but they didn't affect performance. I came online to find out what the pants were really intended for and had to laugh. Don't be fooled, these are perfect for skiing�??provided you're not obsessed with only wearing gear designed for specific sports!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These have replaced my jeans! So glad to have found these pants! They are my new favorite and have replaced my jeans - I even ordered a second pair as "backup". Nice fabric, lots of pockets (that zip close, and really appreciate that these do not have annoying flaps on the back ones), and I like the snap closure at waistband much better than a button/buttonhole. The fabric is easy to put on, even with damp skin (I wear these after paddling.) The black color (to me) is not a true black, but close enough. I would love to get these in a medium-dark blue, or gray color too. I am 5-1, 110 lbs. with a 27" waist and 35" hip. I have the size 2. The waistband hits 2" below my navel but was a bit loose so I use a belt and it then fits 1" below navel, which I prefer so I don't get a blast of cold air. Fits nicely through hip/thigh/knee - no puckers or bagging. I don't mind the articulated knees and the length is perfect - a rarity for me. The stretch in the fabric makes for a comfortable all-day long fit. I can sit in these for long car drives/plane flights - nothing pinches or binds even when sitting cross-legged on floor or doing a deep squat. They travel well: I have squashed them into a backpack and they look great (no wrinkles) when I take them out. Wash and wear beautifully. I might use my dividend to buy another backup pair! And the only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because I wish the rise was just a bit higher. Other than that, perfect!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Petite", indeed -- too much so for me I'm maybe 5-foot-2, and so buy lotsa petite stuff. But these pants were TOO short, really. Kept them for wearing with low, small-scale shoes but bought other pairs in the Regular length for wear with ankle-high boots. And those are just dandy. So if you're shorter than I am, party on!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them I have worn these pants in three sizes -- all have fit great on my body at the time. That's saying something! I wear them hiking in cool/cold/wet weather. For cold weather I wear a layer of thermals underneath. They would be too warm in the summer heat. I don't use the pockets other than to store a tissue or two, so can't really speak for those. They are my go-to hiking pants. I am 5'1" and now 128 pounds, the size 8P works great and the 10P is my thermal pants/winter pant.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfy! I bought these for a snow camping trip I went on recently. I've been looking for a pair of soft shell pants that wouldn't break the bank. These pants fit perfect. The petite length is perfect for a shorty like me and they even fit over my snow boots. They kept me warm, although I did have a base layer underneath in camp. I never felt restricted and they moved well with me on snowshoes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely reccommend Wore in springtime hikes, canyoneering and repelling in UT. Very comfortable with a good fit. Kept me warm during rainy/cool hikes. Washed well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from From Work to Ski Touring I wore them to work on casual days, and then after work headed right to the trails for an hour of ski touring. Really comfortable gear!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from favorite pants I love these pants and 10P are a perfect fit (5'1" 130 lbs). I wish you would make other colors! I would buy multiple pairs.
