    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.

    by fromSpacious; great ventilation I own the 2, 3, and 4-person Trail Ridges and think they're great. The 2 and 3 are noticeably more spacious than other any other 2- and 3-person tents I've seen. I've had no problems with leaking. Love the ventilation. There are two small problems on the 2P. There are no pullout loops on the sides and I think those are essential. You can use tarp clips or sew on some loops, but really Kelty should provide them. The fly vents have a small plastic rod sewn into the hem which is supposed ot keep the vent open. It collapses easily. But the tent has so much ventilation that I'm not sure the vents add much. My biggest problem with the Trail Ridge is the white color of the fly. It gets dirty immediately in the rain with mud splashing on it and isn't that attractive.

    by fromWe liked it so much, we bought a dozen. Our scout troop bought 12 last summer and the tent has held up well in all types of outdoor activities and some extreme weather conditions. The tent has withstood wind, driving rain, and swarms of mosquitos. The inside is always dry, no condensate to be found anywhere. The boys and the adults love it.

    by fromMy Go-to Tent I have been using this shelter for about a year now and absolutely love it. Whether you are solo hiking and want more room or hiking with a friend, this tent is great. I am an active hiker and have used it in rain, sleet, and even two feet of snow and it has only minimal signs of wear. Pros: Extremely easy to set up (two poles and done). It is a freestanding with plenty of space for two people and their gear inside. Doors on both sides are great when two people are using the tent. Both doors have vestibules that are easy to cook out of. Ventilation I easily controlled. Never been wet on the inside of this tent. VERY DURABLE! Cons: Vestibules don't have a ton of space, wish there was more so I could leave backpack outside tent. It is heavier than other two person tents When setting up in the rain I have found it useful to place the rain fly over the tent as much as possible before you put the poles in to raise the tent, that way your floor is not wet when you go to sleep. Also I bought compression sack for this tent to save room in my pack and I have found it works great and the compression sack has not damaged the tent or rain fly. Like I said this is my go-to tent when I head out on a trip at the spur of a moment.
