    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.

    SmartWool Midweight Zip-T Top - Wool - Men's is rated 4.7895 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way less odor than synthetic shirts I own base layers from REI, North Face, Nike, Brooks, etc plus numerous technical jerseys from races I have competed in over the years from a host of manufactures. They all share the common trait that after the slightest amount of perspiration, wait 2 hours and you smell like a locker room. The natural wool product is head and shoulders above the synthetic material in this regard. During cold weather backpacking trips it would get moist but it would take it 3 days to get as bad as a synthetic does after 3 hours. I like that the shoulders are a separate piece of material so there is no seam at the top of the shoulder. This prevents a raw spot from the shoulder straps of a backpack. The material is soft to the skin, no itching, chaffing, etc. Fit is true to size and warmth is as good or better than a synthetic in my opinion. I have recently decided this will be going with me to Rainier this fall instead of the synthetic one I had originally planned to take. 5 days in it without taking it off will certainly push the limits of its ability to fight odor, dry quickly and keep me warm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband loves this shirt! My husband is pretty choosy and doesn't like bulky items or anything that looks too fashionable:) This is a good basic that he wears often. I like how it looks and he likes its functionality and practicality. My son has asked for one for Christmas. It's a great layer for skiing, too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first baselayer This was my first base layer I had ever purchased. I've just spent too many nights shivering around a campfire wishing I had brought a few more layers. This really does the trick! It is incredibly warm yet breathable, meaning no excessive sweating. I usually wear a medium and my SmartWool is true to size. It really holds in heat, so it's best used on cold days. I got too warm in mine on a day hike in about 60 degrees, but I've enjoyed it so much I bought a Microweight Zip-T for those warm days that I'll be exerting myself. I plan on swapping them at night so I have a nice, warm, and dry Midweight for nights by the fire.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, comfortable, awesome I've had a set of midweight (top and bottom) long underwear for 2 winters, not counting this one. It's fantastically warm like no cotton can ever feel, it's amazingly soft and comfortable, and it's lasted quite a long time with daily usage in the cooler months. I recommend Smartwool underwear 100%.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value My husband owns this garment and my son borrowed it. My son asked for one as a gift. Both wear their's frequently both on the slopes and around town in the winter. Breathes better and not hot like poly. They like the same olive color. Does not retain odor and washes well on the "hand wash" setting in the machine. I flat dry it. Nothing negative about it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Base Layer My favorite base layer ever. Whether sitting in deer stand for hours or down hill skiing, very comfortable layer to wear all day. Couldnt wait to get out of Under Armour Cold Gear at end of long hunt. This stays on for my nap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite shirt When I'm not backpacking, I'm traveling. This shirt is great, because it breathes and helps to regulate body temperature in changing conditions. I'm 5'10" and 150 lbs. The large fits in the shoulders and chest, but is baggy and long in the waist and the sleeves are a tad long. But I use this as a shirt over a thinner SmartWool T-shirt, and it's a perfect combo for hiking, hanging around the house, or flying across country.
