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.
REI Mistral Pants - Men's 30" Inseamis rated4.6out of5by10.
Rated5out of5byKevin in OHfromwear them for everythingI wear these pants for everything: cross-country skiing, hiking, cold-weather running... they size a bit tight, so order a size up and you can wear a base layer underneath when it gets really cold. The soft-shell fabric sheds snow really well and I've yet to be wet in any activity with them.
A major plus is they come in a 30in inseam, which is really hard to find in activewear, but it makes the fit so much better for 5'8" guys like me.
Please keep making these! I will buy more when I get extra cash.

Rated5out of5byChuckDfromBest soft shell pants everI had been interested in soft shell pants for hiking. They are super comfortable, flexible, breathable and yet warm all at the same time. I can absolutely see myself wearing these hiking on all but the warmest of days. I wore these with a thermal base layer in 9 degree (F) weather shoveling snow for a few hours and was quite comfortable. I will be purchasing more in the near future.
Seriously, give these shot ... you won't be disappointed.

Rated5out of5byjbrimfromnew favorite pantsI was looking for a technical soft-shell pant for climbing, and I found the mistral pants at my local REI store. As soon as I tried them on, I fell in love.
These pants are incredibly comfortable thanks to the stretchy soft-shell material and the spot-on fit. I also really appreciate that they came in inch lengths because I have shorter legs for my overall height, so finding pants that aren't too long is difficult. Since they're more of a technical pant, they are a slimmer fit, but they fit me perfectly.
Because they're soft-shell, the range of movement I have is unmatched by any other type of pant. They seem like they would also be suitable for a range of temperatures, and I can definitely fit a baselayer underneath them if I wanted to wear them outside in cooler temperatures.
They even look deceptively dressy, so I feel like I could almost wear them to work with a shirt and tie and people might not even notice.
I almost never take the time to write product reviews, but these pants warranted it. REI, please make them in more colors!

Rated5out of5byGHarrisMomfromWonderful!!I have had several pairs of these pants over the years, through at least 3 redesigns. My favorite pair of comfortable pants for hiking, backpacking, and even work. I really wish they were more consistently available. It looks like they will be discontinued from what I can see on trying to order them - not happy about that!
BTW - am a woman ordering man's pants because they provide better fit than the "women's" versions! Of course it would be nice if there were more larger-petite versions of the women's clothes!

Rated5out of5byBuffaloBoyfromcomfortable and snazzyI am extremely pleased with these pants. I recently wore them ice climbing, with a base layer underneath, and found them flexible and comfortable with a harness on. Also, with a base layer underneath, they were the perfect light/breathable pants to wear while snowshoeing. I definitely don't regret buying them, and I look forward to wearing them during the spring.

Rated4out of5byJerry Chfromcomfortable but slimI just got the Mistral pants as a gift and they are so comfortable that I've started to wear them around the house even when I don't plan on going outside. One warning though ... I found them to be a little slim fitting (like wearing skinny jeans). I actually ended up sizing up, which I found to be a little loose. I wish they made odd sizes.

Rated4out of5bySCoutdoor LoverfromGreat pantsGreat pants. Comfortable and light. I use these on business casual days, travel, outdoors in all but the coldest days (in the south). Can stretch out if you wear several days but snaps back after washing.
