    REI Members get back an estimated $ 154.90 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    Current Designs Storm GT Kayak with Rudder is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from change in rudder controls for 2013 This is a great boat for large paddlers with intermediate skills (I'm 6' 1" 160lbs, intermediate). It's stable and handles well. I've paddled it on tree choked rivers with the rudder up and it handled very well. I gave it only 4 stars because the REI models have toe pedal rudder controls. Gas pedal rudder control would make it a 5 star (see below) IMPORTANT NOTE: The Storm was equipped with toe pedal rudder control through 2012. I found this acceptable on a borrowed boat but it's a little slow in maneuvering. I had to search with my toes to find the controls. Could be a problem if a quick response is needed. CD went with gas pedal rudder controls on the 2013 model but I don't believe REI has them yet. I ordered and received a boat in August and it had toe pedals (2013 boats began shipping from CD August 1). I didn't take delivery of the boat - waiting for the gas pedal control.
