    REI Members get back an estimated 10% 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.

    Ruffwear The Beacon Pet Light is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright Functional Light This is a decent light for you dog, maybe even your cat. The RuffWear gear all has a 'light loop' where this light can easily attach to. While it is secure on their gear, it can - might have an issue attaching to non-RuffWear gear. Some people have reported that if falls off during rough activities and can end up being lost. There is a loop, but it is very small, not sure what you can loop through it, it would be very tough to loop it on the dog's tag ring. NOT WATERPROOF. The battery compartment does not have a waterproof seal. There should be a rubber seal - but there is none. Water submersion will ruin this light. I have used mine only in rain and it still works. Others have reported their dogs jumping into the lake and the light no longer works after that. Battery is 2032 type battery. It takes TWO to power the LED light. Kinda spendy to replace. RuffWear could have made a slightly larger light to use AAA type batteries and included a rubber seal to make it waterproof. Three type of light settings: Pulsing Strobe Strobe Solid light Luv RuffWear - this could have been better for the price. But for what I use and our activity level it works just fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light I got this for my 100 lb dog last September 2012 and haven't had to replace the battery, yet. It gets used in the winter or during late night excursions, so probably 1 hour a night for 6 months. I originally added a small clip to make it easy to put on/take off his collar tag loop each night, but it broke from play with another dog. So, I ended up attaching straight to the tag loop (under his neck) with the provided metal key-type clip. Now it just stays there 24/7 and I turn it on when needed. That would be my only recommendation to the makers is to come up with something so it's easily removable from the tag loop. I know you can use the clip that slides on, but with play at the dog park, it would just slide off or break. It is watertight and he has gone in the water with it (not for prolonged times, just in and back out) and it still keeps on blinking! I definitely recommend this and have suggested it to other pet owners when they inquire.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not watertight Had this just 2 weeks. Just came back from a quick dip in the river to get out of heat and my dog, a Newfoundland, barely got into the water, maybe just 2 minutes. The light is toast. Who makes a dog light that can't tolerate a swim and says on description that it's water resistent?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tougher than it looks This is a follow up review. My first review I MISTAKENLY said there is no waterproof seal. I need to correct this statement. I accidentally put this in the wash. I thought I had ruined it, BUT upon further inspection - I discovered it does have a rubber seal around the battery compartment / lid. It's just very thin. I just never noticed it before, dark plastic dark rubber. Even after soaking it in the wash for several minutes the interior remained dry. That it is fairly water proof. It stayed dry, possibly because I had already replaced the batteries earlier this year and I had tighted the screws more so when I had opened it. Either way, it does have a good seal and it can be submerged but I wouldn't risk that too often just make sure the screws are secured.
