    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.

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

    by fromCould use some work Bear spray vs guns is the biggest debate. I do both, but whatever. I lean towards spray in all instances except when I'm sleeping inside my tent. This carrier just needs more options. It seems to be only designed to use for a standard belt. It needs a larger opening for backpack waist belts. It also needs the ability to be added after the backpack belt has been added rather than forcing the holster to be inserted before the pack belt is closed. Ambitious.... but rubbish. Seems that this company is only interested in capitalizing on the requied bear spray vs making good design. Would also be nice to be able to mount this horizontally on a waist belt so it's not protruding against my leg. These simple things would allow more people to be willing to carry this important devise. Would be totally willing to help this company's design if they want to get back to me. My jobs is designing things.

    by fromHad this on and glad I did Was on the trail and a Black Bear decided to come running down the trail at us. I was able to pull the canister out of the holster quickly and have the spray ready in seconds. Luckily the bear stopped some yards from us and moved off the trail. But it was reasuring that I could have the canister at the ready that quickly. I now carry it on my belt even on many day hikes.
