    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.

    Zoic Black Market Convertible Bike Pants - Men's is rated 4.7143 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very nice with some caveats I use these primarily for commuting to work, and they are great for that purpose. I really like the material, which is light and reasonably cool but stops the wind and is suitable for cold weather with some tights underneath. The included chamois is decent. The fit is good for cycling: pretty slim, and the fold-up cuffs with the large reflective surfaces inside are a very nice touch. There are just a couple significant downsides. One is that the cuffs use buttons rather than a snap. I don't know what the advantages of this are supposed to be, but they're very fiddly and annoying to do and undo. Plus, of course, it means you have two holes in your pants halfway down your calves, which seems like unequivocally a bad thing. The other may be somewhat subjective or particular to this pair, but the stitching in general seems dodgy and I worry that it won't last too long. Some of the inside seams look loose, and the buttons also seem likely to come loose before long. Again, I can't be sure as I haven't had them too long, but I'm very suspicious. Overall, good pants, but a little expensive for the flaws they have.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, practical, versatile. Just took my first ride wearing these pants (shorts mode) and love them. The liner pants are a very breathable, quick-drying mesh with great padding. The pants have a little stretch, making them very comfortable. They can be worn without the liner for other uses - hiking, casual wear, etc. Pocket layout is very handy. The right diagonal pocket contains an eyeglass chamois. Oddly, it seems to leave a smudge on my glasses. Maybe I just haven't figured it out yet. The cuffs fold up to reveal reflective tape. They are held up with 2 buttons fastened at the cuff. As a result, there are button-holes on the calf. That's a little odd. I have not tried riding with the cuffs up yet. But I think it would be better to use velcro. It would also be nice to be able to tighten the cuffs around my ankles with velcro when they are down. The legs are on the narrow side, which makes sense for cycling pants. But I wish there were zippers on the legs to make it easier to get over shoes. It would be nice to see another non-convertible model with windproof fabric on the font. All that being said, I still think they are great pants. It's like getting pants and shorts for the same price. I am 5'10", 185lbs with a 36" waist. I tried large and extra large. The XL fit great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts, knickers and pants This product is great. Very light, dries quickly, comfortable and versatile. The inside padding shorts/underwear it comes with is enough padding to keep your ride smooth and comfortable. It's usually a pair of pants, but you can roll up the bottom to reveal the reflectors. You button up the bottom to make it look like knickers as well. if it gets too hot, unzip the bottom portion of the legs to make them into shorts. There are plenty of pockets for things. However, I wish the extra zip-pockets in the front were designed better. Since the openings are diagonal, my phone doesn't fit comfortably in it (yes, I keep it there instead of the regular pocket w/o the zippers so it doesn't fall out), but I guess they're made for storing smaller items. Overall, the product is awesome and I love it. Instead of buying separate riding pants, knickers, and shorts, I have all three in one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value for 3 things. Good quality! You get essentially 3 things for the price of one. Pants, Shorts, and a Liner. Pretty good value all together because I'm most cases you would spend this much on only pants. The awesome part is that the liner is removable so you can wear the pants without the padding. Makes it perfect for around town or even hiking. Not sure about durability yet but we shall see how it holds up with time! No worries there since REI has the best customer service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well thought out design I use these pants for late Fall early Winter commuting, (around 20 km) but they can be used just as well in the summer. I use some Novarra riding shorts then however. Like to use these pants when it just gets cold enough to switch from shorts, such as when the mornings are about 2 degrees C. Easy to ride in, nice to have the reflective strips in the legs for the ride home, pockets are secure and versatile and the padding is very good. Easy to care for as well and I like the removable inner liner which I can't do with the Novarra shorts. Easier to wash that way. Pretty quick drying which is helpful cause we hang our wash instead of using a dryer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pants I commute 18 miles in these puppies. I love the reflective stripe when you roll the pants, but as others have mentioned, the buttonhole is strange. I'm used to wearing pants like the REI convertible hiking pants when bike commuting. These are the first proper biking pants that I've bought, and they were definitely worth it. I love the stretchy, responsive feel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pants Really comfortable pants. I use them for riding, hiking and just hangin out. I own 2 pair and if there were more colors, I'd have more.
