    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 fromSlept like a baby As the years go by, I've found that sleeping on the ground isn't as comfortable as it used to be. Bought a couple of these for my hubby's birthday, took them on a trip to Big Bend--they are fabulous! Slept better in our tent than I have for years. Only complaint is the difficulty of installing the legs--had to ask him for help, then were able to get them into place. Guess it's time to work on my upper body strength!

    by fromMy second, one for each coast! This is my second cot because I wa tired of taking the other one across country on a plane.It's that good! Beefy, holds my 230 pounds, gets you 4 inches off the ground. Wide, your elbows and arms can sleep, too! Long, 6 foot 2, obviously not for backpacking, though it gets compact enough for car camping. Fits in my historical tent for reenacting, goes from the living room to car to rev war wedge tents with ease, worth it to sleep at night.

    by fromexcellent value I bought and used this the 1s time this weekend during a boy scout camping event. I was able to compare it to many models. the one in the $30 range where typically just that.. great for use a few times a year but are not built to take the abuse over being strapped to a pack overtime or felt as sturdy overall. Also note this is 30” wide so great if you turn in your sleep. As others have noted these units are best suited for young kids with little arm strength as you need some muscle to set the tension rods for assembly and then release them for disassembly. my only complaint is I wish it came with a bag that fit over entire unit not just rods and this bag was water proof or repellent since this will typically by attached to the outside of my pack for short hike or pack in camping trips. Granted ones costing double may be lighter and smaller packed up but when costing more than double I would spend the money on a better pad than a cot of this cost….

    by fromIdeal for car camping Easy to set-up—except for kids, the spring legs require a bit of strength to pull the rods down into the holes. Pack down really well, esp. for a family of four. May get you off the cold ground, but there's a catch: you still need to lay down some sort of windproof fabric or you will get cold. I use a foam pad.

    by fromPerfect for car camping I bought this to take car camping rather than either sleeping on the ground (or rather, not sleeping!) or hauling an air mattress. There are lots of great places to camp where you can't have electricity for an air mattress, and I have hit the point where I want and *need* a good night's sleep. This cot took me only a few minutes longer to set up the first time, and that was due to figuring out the easiest way to tension the rods. It comes with a little yellow rod gripper which helps. I unfolded the cot, laid it upside down, and made sure the bars had the holes facing up. Put an end into the hole nearest you. While sitting, brace the other side with your feet while pulling on the side of the bar to drop it into the hole. It sets up so fast once you get the hang of that part. It's not heavy at all, and it was very comfortable to sleep on. I used a small 1/4" CCF pad with foam egg crate on top and slept like a log. :) I'm so glad I got this !

    by fromPain to setup Spent 10 minutes trying to set it up and gave up, put it back in the box to return. Looks good though. Just not worth the hassle when there are other EASY options.

    by fromNice, but legs too shallow for adult use Got this as a lightweight, easy to pack alternative for weekend scout camping. I like how easy it is to set up (takes a little muscle, but not too much), and doesn't take up as much space as an air matres. The problem I have with it is that the clearance is only about 6 inches and the thin leg bars tend to sink into the ground. Within a few minutes your hips are touching the ground. I weigh about 185 lb so I'm not above the weight limit. I plan on giving this to my 11 year old and getting a standard height cot. I'd recommend it for lighter folks/kids but probably not for adults unless you absolutely need something extremely light.
