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.

Easiest filter on the planet. VersatileOk, after hundreds of miles of pump filtering water, I decided to move towards inline and gravity feed filtration to ease the process. I'm a backpacker with weight in mind and this filter is all that and then some. You have the ability to start a trail without any water weight which is 2.2 lbs per liter, and scoop at any river or lake and drink. The suction needed is very minimal unlike another reviewer stated before. We had zero issues with either filter bottle. What makes it better is the ability to connect to your water bladder and drink straight through it, or hang and run as a gravity filter. It gravity filters 1 liter in under 90 seconds which is as fast as you could pump. I bring an empty 1 liter smart water bottle which weighs 1.2oz as an additional container for cooking, drinking etc. I use the Sawyer bottle on the way to camp and on day hikes, but once we set up camp, I hand my Platy Big Zip and put the filter inline for gravity filtration. I love this setup. You could even use the filter as a straw to drink straight out of a water source if something happened to your bottle. Be sure to pay attention to the marked (FLOW) arrow always. Arrow should point towards the drinking end. With 1,000,000 gallon guarantee, this is a lifetime filter which back-flushes easily with provided syringe. Back flush against the flow arrow, not with it like some people have shown online. The filter itself weighs under 2oz even with some leftover water inside of it. I contacted Sawyer and they said that all of their point one filters are the same despite the visuals and casing. Can't go wrong with this product. This is the cheapest way to shave a lot of weight IMO. Amazeddddd!!!

Great and easy to useSawyer is really easy to use and maintained as it claim to be. I went to Peru and was able to use it in the cities and the inca trail. My mind was in peace specially the last 2 days of the trail where the water were provided and were rationed. didn't get sick and free of stomach aches. I've always had problem whenever I travelled out of the country even when I bought and drank the bottled water in eaurope and asean countries. this is the first time I've travelled with no health issue just by making sure I pour all the water into my sawyer filter bottle before drinking it.

Great for every day use as well.I got this for camping and light hiking. I decided since I spend most of my time at home, I would use it there as well instead of getting bottled water or a system that needs replacement filters. This one lasts forever with proper cleaning and backwashing.
I use it daily to fill my water container from the tap at home. I drink 90% of my water from water filtered by this filter. I figured since it has a 1 million gallon guarantee, why not use it every day. I have used it for over three years this way daily. You can save a ton of money and help the environment by using it this way. I set it up as a gravity filter to fill my water containers at home and it works great!
To keep the flow at its max rate you should backwash every 32 to 64 oz. This may bother some people, especially in the wilderness where water might be scarce. That is why I gave it four stars. Otherwise, it is perfect. Great job Sawyer for making a great filter.
