    REI Members get back an estimated $ 30.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    Fischer S-Bound 88 Backcountry Skis

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    Fischer S-Bound 88 Backcountry Skis is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect Balance These skis are the perfect balance between touring and telemarking. You give up a little on the tracking, especially hard packed or groomed trails, but since that's not what I do, it's not an issue. I primarily use them to bushwhack, tour along our own network of back country trails and to get to some terrain where I can make a few turns. Just great!
