    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.

    Mountain Hardwear Mountain Tech Vest - Men'sis rated5.0out of5by10.
    Rated5out of5byfromgreat vestI've only worn the vest once, but it is a great product. I would say it has an athletic cut, so if you do want to layer up underneath the vest, order the next size up. I wore the vest over a tee shirt and golf pull-over and it fit just fine. The temp this morning was 32 and I felt nice and warm underneath the vest.

    Rated5out of5byfromAn overall quality piece of gear.I've had this vest now for about a year and its held up extremely well. Its not heavy enough for Wisconsin winters for Spring and Fall its perfect. One of the things I like is you can zip the neck closed and it covers up to your chin. Some companies leave these necks short and it feels like you are wearing a dress shirt. Its also a nice tight fit (for me) and acts like a piece of compression gear so its no likely to get caught on anything on the trails. $125 seems like a lot of money to spend on something like this...buts its a quality piece of gear you will get years of use out of

    Rated5out of5byfromExcellent VestGreat vest! Nice and warm for hiking on cool fall days, adds another layer when New England temps drop to bitter cold and it looks good enough to wear around the office on cool winter days. Definetly the best vest I have owned. I am 6' 210 and the XL fits perfect.

    Rated5out of5byfromLikeGood fit, happy with weight and comfort. I haven't had it long enough to judge how it lasts. My wife likes her Mountain Hardwear items and convinced me to give this vest a try. So far so good and am pleased with the purchase.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat vest for all seasonsI typically read reviews but don't usually leave any. I felt compelled to leave a review on the MH tech vest. I have had this vest for several years. I find myself wearing it year around. Wear under shell snow skiing, playing golf when there is a little chill or just taking a walk on a cool day. It has held up great. What I especially like and the reason I bought it. It has a wind stopper which breaks any breeze which basic fleeces don't do. I'm 6'5 and around 200 and large fit me great.

    Rated5out of5byfromVery warm, yet very light.I am going to San Francisco and the Pacific Northwest in the coming months and wanted a lightweight vest that could be layered with other clothes. It is very lightweight, windproof, yet warm enough to wear with just a t-shirt in 45 degree weather. Perfect for a cool early Spring morning in Texas and yet breathable for when the sun breaks out and warms up.

    Rated5out of5byfromLove this vest!I love this vest! I always thought whats the point of buying a vest! If I'm cold I have a jacket, and if I'm warm I don't need anything. Well, when I finally bought this vest and wore it on a camping trip around Colorado. I found it's perfect for all temp ranges and altitudes. Most of the time I don't need a jacket because it keeps my core so warm the rest of my body stays warm. If it's 60-70 degrees and you're hiking in the mountains and there's that chilly breeze coming down the vest stops the wind and maintains your warmth without over heating. Now in the winter as a mid-layer it has performed better than I would have guessed. All winter in temp ranging from 20 below too 50 above this vest has been there. On the coldest days I have a base, the vest(mid), and a hoody over and been plenty warm. When it was 20 below a few weeks ago I change the hoody for coveralls, but kept the vest. I work outside 85% of the time and this vest is with me always, for the exception of temps around 80-100 degrees. Bottom line I'm more than happy with it:)
