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.
Scarpa Helix Rock Shoes - Men'sis rated4.0out of5by8.
Rated5out of5byClay ReberfromGreat shoe to start inGot these to start climbing. After just over a year of climbing 3 days/wk, I've blown through the soles. They have been very comfy up to now and I'm sorry I didn't notice the wear in time to get them resoled. Scarpa seems to fit me better than most brands. I wear a 7.5 or 8 men's and have a wide foot; a 40 in these was tight initially but broke in perfectly.

Rated5out of5byDentalDamfromGreat 1st Shoe!This was the first shoe I ever bought. They are incredibly comfortable for a climbing shoe. And now. After climbing probably 20 times in them, if I was to buy any shoe it would be this one again.

Rated3out of5byGarethfromso soI bought theze shoes about 6 months ago to do a lot of gym work and found that they stretch a lot! I got them 1 US size smaller than my normal shoe size and they seem to have stretched alot and are now loose. The quality of the shoe is good. However the sole wears very fast. 2 months and the edges are done an the soles are worn right down. Too be honest, the rubber on these is pretty naff. They just blow off edges for no reason (apart from the rubber being too soft) and are not confidence inspiring. Maybe if you get them resoled with Vibram or 5.10 rubber they might work. That's what I'll probably do.
Upshot is that I wouldn't buy them again. I have wide, flat feet 11.5 US Mens size. I got these in US 10.5's. I climb 5.10b/c+ at the gym and need agressive edging for flakes and small holds. I'm 230lbs. These don't cut it. Soles are too flexible and wear too quickly.

Rated5out of5byMichael or MikefromThe Perfect FitNot the stickiest shoes I've owned, and definitely not agressive, but I hardly wear anything else now because these are just so comfortable. The material is very soft, and these shoes fit my feet like a glove. I don't have to constantly take my shoes off to give my toes a break. Because of how well they fit, they don't slip around at all when heel hooking.
95% of the time, they don't hold me back, and if I'm working on a hard problem and really feel like my shoes are keeping me from sending, I can go grab my Miuras. That hasn't happened yet.
They also seem very well put together, no rubber peeling or excessive glue showing, stitching looks solid.

Rated4out of5byReal PolandfromFirst shoeI have no baseline to compare these shoes. But I think that they are wearing nicely. I got a size and a half smaller, and they seem perfect--I wouldn't want to go any larger or smaller.
The cons: they are not aggressive enough sometimes. As such, certain footholds are untenable. This could be because I am new to climbing, and don't have the right technique.

Rated4out of5bycothebadgerfromSo far so good!I made the mistake of getting too aggressive a fit shoe initially (years ago when I started climbing) based on a friend's recommendation. I found myself taking my shoes off between every indoor route and I could hardly walk in them. I'm a casual climber, and this kills me.
These shoes are super comfortable and appropriately-sized for me. I haven't used them much indoors, but what I have done has been good. They don't seem to smear as well as my old shoes, and the toe is less agressive, but I'm kind of starting over on climbing, and they match my current skill level. The big con here is laces vs. velcro... I can handle staying in them, though, so it's not a huge deal. I'd say they're a great starter shoe!

Rated4out of5byJRHensley7fromGood shoe, Decent Price.I use these shoes mostly for indoor climbing and bouldering and I find that they fit well, haven't tried to slip off and grip very well.
