    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    Featuring low weight, smooth lines and a feel that will make you one with the ocean, the Current Designs Vision 130 Comp kayak is a responsive boat that's designed for the smaller paddler.

    • Offering superb performance and a confidence-inspiring feel, the Current Designs Vision 130 Comp kayak is slightly more nimble than its 15 ft. counterpart
    • Unusually lightweight, strong and stiff, the Vision 130 features a hybrid construction of fiberglass and a polyaramid (the same material found in Kevlar®)
    • Vacuum-bagged composite lamination eliminates excess resin, which improves strength and reduces weight to a mere 40 lbs.
    • 13 ft. length offers tracking and maneuverability, and 24 in. width provides stability
    • Swede-form construction enhances speed and maneuverability, and it allows bow to punch through waves instead of riding up and over them
    • Shallow-V hull enhances tracking and offers friendly stability and a lively feel in the water; low decks minimize wind resistance
    • Keyhole-shape cockpit is easy to enter and exit, and integrated foam thighbraces on interior coaming increase comfort when bracing or carving turns
    • Seat creates a natural, comfortable paddling position by tilting the entire seat pan up and away from cockpit floor
    • Use the lever-lock knob—similar to a quick-release fork on a bike wheel—to set the seat pan to the desired height
    • Locking mechanism prevents both side-to-side and up-and-down motion
    • To prevent numbness, seat pan features a contoured space for lower vertebrae and is covered with plush, nonabsorbent, very thick padding
    • Seat back moves up and down and back and forth, and it articulates to move with your paddling motion
    • Sliding bar adjusts foot pegs without having to get out and reach inside cockpit
    • Rear hatch provides enough storage for an overnight trip and features an easy-to-use, rubberized hatch cover
    • Bow hatch features rubberized cover and an additional hard cover with straps to protect contents from splashes
    • Bulkheaded bow and stern hatches provide dry cargo storage during paddles and enhance flotation when hatches are sealed
    • Bow, stern and center bungee deck rigging securely store extra gear on top
    • Toggled carry handles ease transport of the 40 lb. Current Designs Vision 130 Comp kayak to the water

    Current Designs Vision 130 Comp Kayak is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and full of features This is a very fast boat! It moves through the water very efficiently and tracks very good for such a short boat. It is a great compromise between space, load capacity, speed and manuverablity. The seat has to be one of the best features. It adjust in many directions and feels very good. the adjustable foot rests and padding make getting your legs comfortable easy. The holds will swallow more gear than I would need to haul for a multi day trip and the boat just looks awesome. This kayak is not what I would consider a begineers kayak. It lacks a certian amount of initial stablility that is found with the cheap plastic boats you will find a Wal-mart. It is narrower and the the hul is not as flat. This will take a little bit of time to get used to, but after you learn how much you can lean the boat, it is very enjoyable. I've had mine on the water about 4 times now in the last two weeks, it feels like the boat I was meant to paddle. It is easy to portage, store and transport. I find it easy to get in and out of, and the cockpit seems to have plenty of room once inside. I just can't seem to find anything to say this isn't the best boat I have ever been in. I'm very happy with my purchase.
