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.
Rated5out of5byJust a HikerfromMust have!This is probably the 5th or 6th time I have purchased this product either as a gift for someone or for my own use. It is a handy lightweight, seat for those times you need to find a dry spot to sit down, it is comfortable and fits easily on my back pack

Rated5out of5byDick BurkhartfromGreat but needs belt attachmentI wanted this seat pad to be instantly available wherever and whenever I sat down. So I attached a couple of loops to fit onto my belt, reinforced by duct tape where they pass through the pad. This works so well that Therm-a-rest should make it this as an option.
Now after 5 to 10 years of extended usage on the PCT, the pad is worn out, so I'm replacing it.

Rated5out of5byCrown RudolffromAwesome!I never go nordic skiing without this seat. It is virtually weightless and carries easily in the external water bottle pocket of my daypack. It provides a dry, warm, comfortable seat on the ground or on a rock or log. Do NOT hesitate to buy this item and buy one also for your best friend. For the price, it is one of the most useful pieces of outdoor gear that I own!

Rated5out of5bysilverhikerfromLove this pad!I bought two of these, one for myself and one for my boyfriend. We took these on a couple of snowshoe outings with a group and used them to sit on while having lunch. One time we sat directly on the snow with these pads and never felt the cold. We love the idea that they fit easily in the outside bottle pocket of our small day packs. They are small enough so that your arms don't rub on them while using trekking poles and they are so light you hardly notice them. We are both relatively small. For larger people, they may find them too small to sit on.

Rated5out of5byEli ZfromPretty sweetSurprisingly useful. I used this as padding for my Flash 18 climbing three 14ers, then I sat on it at the top waiting for the rest of my group. I used it while lounging around camp. And a member of our group, who did not have a sleeping pad, used this seat pad as the ultimate ultralight pad for her hips, which is a lot better than no sleeping pad. After all, this pad is identical to the Z-Lite sleeping pad in construction and thickness.
Another reviewer said they used it as a pillow, I wouldn't. It is too small/awkward when packed down.
I also don't think this is neccesary for backpacking. I don't bring it on any trips where weight really matters.

Rated5out of5bypenquinheadfromGood productThere are times its nice not to inflate these sit pads and you don't have to worry about punctures. I use this as a sit pad on benches while car camping and as a knee pad at the front of my tent.
I keep it this in my auto at all times.
