    REI Members get back an estimated 10% 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.

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

    by fromOkay, but not the warmest. 48% nylon, 37% polyester, 15% spandex. Made in Mexico. Let's heat off the top of head fine. Doesn't keep my ears as warm as I would like. Have been using it in 40 deg F weather. Might should've gotten something fleece. My big ears are at the top and bottom of the band, where the hems are. Barely covers my ears, and a little uncomfortable on a 2 hour run. Serves its purpose. Not too hot, and doesn't make me sweat like a toboggan normally does. I pulled up the hood on my jacket and used it over this head band, and it worked pretty well. I'll keep it, and maybe find a more comfortable one another time. I think it would keep your hair out of face really well.

    by fromHeld up well I have a lot of headbands but will generally grab this one for my bike commute for moderate temps or for the PM ride home on cold days. It is probably a little warmer than the Pearl headbands. Very comfortable and has held up well after a few years of use. I wear an xl helmet and this band fits fine.

    by fromGood so far I use it on my bicycle commute, in the 50 - 60 degree range. The best thing about it is the slits for sunglasses, which keep the wind from getting in too much. I have no complaints.
