    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't leave home without these! Friends. I have been using Smartwool liner gloves for at least 8 years now, ever since I attended a Winter Mountaineering class in the ADKs. Among other things, that class stressed the importance of having liners and never, never, never taking them off and exposing your bare hands to the cold (it was below zero F during the day that weekend, but (in my experience) this advice applies whenever it is below 20° F). They did NOT endorse any particular glove but I have tried a wide variety of different ones and have ended up using nothing but the Smartwool liners. I wear mine underneath fleece mittens which I wear inside Outdoor Research or Black Diamond mitten shells. Under these conditions they work very well. I seldom use them as my only layer. Yes, they tend to be fragile if you are wearing them as your outermost layer. But as a liner glove they help keep your hands dry and warm. Given their material (loosely woven wool) they do wear out much faster than my fleece mittens (which wear out almost never) and the outer mittens (which despite heavy use also almost never wear out). However, I own 2-3 pairs at all times and only replace these once every 3-4 years.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for jogging, don't touch anything! I'm fairly new to cold-weather running but I'm liking these gloves. They don't block wind very well but they DO hold in warmth and they're excellent at wicking sweat and staying dry during my run. Below 28 degrees or so they'll definitely need to be replaced with something a little heavier with additional wind resistance. They are VERY fragile, however. Stay away from velcro especially and don't plan on using them for any other purpose. They're made well, make no mistake, the material itself is just extremely susceptible to fraying and fuzzing. Overall a good glove that's perhaps priced a tad high for their expected lifespan, but does what they're supposed to do in the meantime.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won't last long Although these are warm and work well as a liner, they wear out quickly. The fabric snags easily. You can barely put a pair of gloves on over them without snagging and ending up with a hole. Within a month I had holes in 3 fingers. Tried sewing up and made them last longer but the holes keep coming. You're better off spending the extra money for a good pair.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good liners I work outside all winter and needed a pair of liner gloves that will stay warm if they get wet. These do the trick by not adding bulk and allowing me to wear a pair of nitrile exam gloves over them. As an added bonus, I can use my smartphone while wearing both layers of gloves. They won't keep your hands warm at all temps, but they are a great base layer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good - but fragile warm enough alone for spring/fall - purchased primarily for around the campsite morning and evening, dog walking, and perhaps in the tent on cold nights! Expect to use as a glove liner when it gets really cold. The touchscreen feature is nice and mostly works. A bigger patch of it on the thumb would be helpful. WARNING - keep away from velcro - especially on jacket pockets. It will snag and pull the wool very easily.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Epic Fail I own dozens of Smart Wool products, so I thought these gloves were a great idea and would live up to Smart Wool's standard of excellence. I was proven wrong after 2 months of use! The gloves developed holes, I stitched them up, and new holes have recently developed which make them worthless. I've only had them 3 months.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely essential! I literally never go on a trip without these. They're super light, reasonably warm, unobtrusive, and fit nicely under heavier gloves, though if it's not really cold I'll wear them alone most of the time. Often I'll sleep with them on. They do wear out, but that just means it's time to buy a new pair.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did buying these help me? I bicycle a couple miles to my suburban train station. Coldest days are low 30s / high 20s. I have a pair of leather gloves with a thin liner that are just a bit too thin to keep my fingers from aching when I'm riding. I got these liners to help provide a bit more warmth, but honestly was not sure if they really helped me that much. Granted, the gloves I wear over are pretty tight, so it could be that the wool's insulative properties were not able to be realized. I found that, rather than using them as a liner, they felt better used alone as a light glove for walking around town.
