    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.

    Kelty Acadia 4 Tent is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Car Camper Tent We wanted a spacious car camping tent, and chose this for it's price. After 2 trips we are very happy with it, and find it a great product for the price. We made the mistake of not tethering the upper pole tension points and had a pole break in a sudden storm with major wind gusts. I'm sure if we had used upper guy lines it would have stood up to it. It kept the water out even though some ground run off flowed underneath. Kelty's customer service was awesome. After the USPS lost the returned pole, I called up Kelty and they sent us a new one via 2nd Day delivery...NO CHARGE! We love our roomy tent, and now take time to protect it from high winds. This is my first Kelty tent (after owning several quality backpacking tents), and find this one to be a great affordable addition to our car camping outings.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keep Looking I am a purist when it comes to shelters in the backcountry. When I need a tent, it needs to be waterproof, windproof and stable (both before and after setup). With that, I took this out on a 6 week trip and used it as a base camp for a few of the stops. It was great for the first night. The full mesh felt like you were sleeping right under the stars and the breeze helped to stay cool. BUT, on the second, and third and by the fourth time I set it up, the fiberglass poles started warping and failing (yes, I was even overly careful... it WAS a brand new tent). This was a concern when I first purchased it, but I hadn't experienced fiberglass poles until now. They are the absolute worst pick for tent poles... unless you are only going to set this thing up once in your life. I would suggest to keep looking around, or, if you are attached to the idea of a full mesh tent, just go for the 6man... not the 4. You wouldn't want to pack in either way, might as well add space and metal poles. Enjoy the outside.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waist your time Very flimsy tent, pain in the butt to set up... Rain fly is terrible...very glad I set it up in the garage before taking it camping and trying to set up in the wind...tent is totally see through if you don't use the rain fly...will be taking it back tonight and spending a bit more on a better tent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tent Used this tent last weekend. We had flooding rain the first night and the tent never leaked. We loved the vestibule because it gave us a area to keep our shoes and wet stuff. This is a very breezy tent which makes it a little better for warmer nights, we found ourselves needing more blankets as the temps dipped. We did have some condensation the second night. Overall we were happy with our new tent.
