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.
Rated3out of5byChert1fromLooks goodGreat looking and functional hat but I just couldn't get it to fit right. The hat appears to be more form fitting than loose in the image. The head band could be adjusted to fit my head with no issues but after having the hat on for a while it tended to ride down on my ears, pushing them out. I usually wear a 7.5 or so in hat sizes. This one just wasn't for me.

Rated5out of5byDKC from LVfromPerfect for rainy daysLightweight, attractive, breathable and waterproof. Perfect to keep in my vehicle for rainy days and to take on hikes, especially when there's a chance of rain.

Rated5out of5bySherpaDfromGreat hatThe hat is exactly as described, but I found it to be too "occlusive" for running in warm weather (this was my goal). Would be great for hiking or cooler weather jogging. Even though it's breathable, it is much thicker material than I was looking for (think medium weight Gortex). Not a fault of the hat... just not what I was looking for.

Rated5out of5byEllisonfromwaterproof and comfortable.Comfortable, lightweight, and adjustable for your head size. No worries in a light rain - its waterproof. And the longish brim helps my eyes avoid the sun on very bright days. A good purchase.

Rated5out of5byDME-49RfromIt is waterproofUsed this cap under the hood of my rain jacket to keep the rain off my glasses. Water beaded up and ran off the brim. Glasses stayed dry. Brim never was wet during an all day rainstorm. Good sun protection, too. Used this cap on the Camino de Santiago, last month.

Rated5out of5byHybridgeekfromGreat all-purpose hat!This hat is incredibly versatile. I use it for both everyday wear to shield my eyes from the sun and during rainy weather to help keep my glasses clear. It's lightweight, compact, and waterproof.

Rated5out of5bykayakrfrombest waterproof and breathable capAwesome if you need *waterproof* and breathable. eVent is the best.
Cap style may not the best for continuous rain without a hood in which case you may want a fisherman or sombrero style from OR, etc. Too bad eVent is tough to find in this style. eVent could be overkill if worn under a hood, if the hood is providing most of the protection. Sometimes a softshell style under the hood will be enough.
Caps are great for eyeglass wearers like me.
I've got several of these in the car / house, etc.

Rated5out of5byKozyfromMy favorite hiking capI have been looking for a cap/hat that is water-/wind-proof without blowing my budget too much. REI Rangeclimber cap was the only one that came to my attention with above criteria.
Rangeclimber cap is made of eVent fabric, one of top-notch breatheable fabric, I guess. Also, inside of Rangeclimber cap, seams are taped similar to raincoat or tent rainfly.
A simple test in the kitchen sink proved that the cap is well water-proofed: a stream of water from the tap failed to wet the cap outside. I am sure that this cap will be great in supplementing my hooded rain coat when I find myself in rain while hiking/backpacking.
