    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.

    Osprey Poco Child Carrier is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Day hike napper We purchased this pack in store after trying it on with our 1 year old. We tried hiking with front carriers for our other two children. Those caused back pain after a few miles due to the added weight on your chest. This pack is very comfortable with the weight mostly around your waist, held secure with the shoulder straps, just like a traditional hiking pack. There are plenty of loops to hook water bottles, cameras, and zip-bags filled with snacks or other supplies. There are zippered pockets that we store diapers in when we are using the pack around town or at tourist destinations. We love how we can kick the stand out and let our son continue his nap, even when we've reached our resting spots.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from great except for waist belt We have always loved Osprey products and have scored their items at least 4 and sometimes 5 stars. I was disappointed in this child carrier however. Received it today and everything was great in regard to construction and kid-safety. I am 5'10" and not overweight. I wear a size 10 or 12 pants. The padded portion of the waist belt was just barely 3/4 of an inch past the tip of my hip bones. Any person even a bit larger would have had zero padding on the belt. The two more expensive packs--well! they have "extended" belt padding. I ended up ordering the next price up, but felt very cheated. I paid for oversize shipping here, shipping back to return, oversize shipping for my next pack�?�.Blah, Osprey! If the belt is sized to fit only women of normal weight who stand 5'7" or below, Osprey should put that IN THE SPECS!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great baby carrier for day hikes We bought this two weeks ago and tried it out on a short 2 mile hike. It seems very comfortable for our 10 month old; he loves to gnaw on the load lifter straps and grabbing the hold strap. He even fell asleep after a while. The waist belt is ok. The Plus and Premium waist belts are a lot nicer but at a $60-$100 penalty. I'd like to have wider or thicker shoulder straps to help spread the load better. The pack loads up with weight fast. Our 10 month old weighs about 20 lbs., adding 3L of water, diapers, wipes, some snacks, you'll be looking at close to 40lbs including the weight of the pack. I like that the bottom storage compartment don't compress like the Plus and Premium but would like to have the waist belt from them. You can add a sunshade to round out the package. I'd avoid adding on a Daylite pack because you can really overload the pack with it if you plan on stuffing it all. Save the Daylite for when your child can walk along or carry it when they're not in the pack. Otherwise this is a great pack that will see years of use and has the ability to expand.
