    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.

    Timbuk2 Goody Box Top Tube Pack is rated 3.8235 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good design I used this bag for an entire summer of training and a 300 mile tour. Although I highly recommend it, there are some things that could be improved upon as described below. This profile bag / bento box / top tube back is pricey compared to the competiting bags such as the Axiom Power Top. But to me it is well worth the money for the following reasons: - construction seems very high quality and I think I'll get at least a decade of solid use out of this item. - I really like the extra large main compartment; you can fit enough stuff for an all day ride, as described below - the side mesh is perfect for small items you don't want to get lost in the main compartment, per the below. - I love having the clear top to see and access my phone from on a ride; and love that I can also use it to alternatively hold and view cue sheets. PROS: Massive storage in the main compartment- I can put *lots* of snacks plus my garage door opener in the main comparment (e.g. currently in my GB are: 2 Cliff Bars, 1 Rise bar, 1 bag of Honey Stinger Energy Chews, and my garage door opener --- with less bars I can easily put a second pair of sunglasses in there). Side Mesh is fantastic to hold the following: drivers lic, credit card, cash, and my bike lock key. Plus, there is still room to stuff snack trash in there as well (e.g. a used GU gel or Cliff Bar wrapper), which is perfect, because I despise seeing cycling litter on the roads. Clear cell-phone display on top- It took a bit of stretching, but after 5-10 uses, my old Galaxy S phone now slides very easily in/out of the display area; it is really designed for an IPhone, and I imagine if I had something of that form factor it would have fit perfectly from the beginning. NOTE: when riding a new route, instead of putting cell phone there, I can put a folded "cue sheet" to easily see the next group of 5-10 turns while riding, and then flip the sheet over and re-insert to see the next set of turns. Improvements I'd Like To See In Next Version. Although I really dig this bag for all the Pros stated above, there are some modifications I'd like to see added in a future release: 1. QUICK RELEASE -- I keep drivers lic, money, garage door opener, and phone in this: it irks me that I have to remove 4 velcro straps every time I leave my bike for a bathroom or lunch break. I'd like to see a permanently mounted quick-release holder for the top tube, with velcro only being used to attach it to the stem (a system much like that used on the Novara Quick Release Seat Bag). 2. VELCRO SIDE-FLIP TO GET INTO MAIN COMPARTMENT --- the main compartment opens up via a dual zipper, and then the top flips back towards oneself to access one's snacks. Although it isn't difficult to operate with a single hand, I think it would be easier to operate if the top opened to the side with velcro instead (something akin to the design of the Axiom Power Top top-tube bag). 3. BUILT-IN RAIN COVER This is the bottom of my wishlist since I live in SoCal. But, if I lived or cycled in places where rain was not infrequent, this would be very nice. One could probably jury-rig something with a clear shower cap; but a built-in feature would be great. Side note: Some reviewer(s) commented that their knees hit the bag because it was wide. I can't explain it, but although my knees/thighs grazed TGB the first couple of times I used it while standing on my road bike, it stopped occurring after that (guessing my standing stance changed to accomodate bag, though I made no conscious effort to change it).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very handy little tube pack I have a small seatpost bag, but wanted to carry more than a patch kit and energy gel packs. I use it to store my cel phone, a small pistol and energy bars. Very stable mount.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient Very handy. Fits my I-phone perfectly and is almost like a dashboard on my Bike. Extremely handy for running my bike related apps while riding. Also stores small items like gloves, lights, wallet, etc... The only negative aspect is that the upper Velcro strap around the head set is slightly high but it still fit and everything stays in place just fine.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not perfect I use it for commuting. Despite the negatives, I like it. Its better than the Topeak bag I had that wouldn't stay upright on the bar because it only had one low loop around the handlebar stem. The TimBuk2 still rolls over, but as far. My iphone 3GS phone doesn't fit in the phone pocket when the phone is in its case. The phone pocket doesn't seem to be waterproof at the opening. The flap from the case doesn't cover the opening of the phone pocket very well. I find the double zipper connected by the strap a little awkward to get both zippers zipped all the way. It keeps keys and things out of my pants pockets so they don't wear holes from pedaling. I'd recommend it, but would like to see design changes to make it easier to use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for its intended purpose Excellent for a commuter/city bike. Not for a competitive cyclist. Perfect size for keys, wallet and phone. Clear phone/map pocket will fit an iPhone without a case, but probably not something the size of the Galaxy S4. Too hard to access while riding so don't expect to pull out a gel pack on the go. My knees hit the pack when I come out of the saddle to accelerate, or on hills. This would bother you in San Francisco, but not a problem here in Miami. Overall I would not recommend the pack on a road bike, but it is perfect for my daily city bike. Holds just enough to keep me from having to use a backpack. Not perfect for everyone, but it works well for me. Excellent quality and build

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's almost perfect I was looking for additional storage space to put food in for long rides. The only complaint I have is that it's slightly wide and rubs my knees when powering through and hill climbs. Going to have to find something else.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy I used this on my first touring ride. It was handy to hold my maps and snacks, etc. The only problem I have with it is the phone pocket. I have a mophie battery pack for my iPhone. When the battery pack is on the phone it doesn't fit in the pocket. When using the iPhone GPS the batter drains fast and the battery pack is essential. But other wise it's a good product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Timbuk2, another great item! The velco straps are a bit short in the front, but nothing an extension could not fix. I like the phone pocket! All around very easy to use and very functional
