    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.

    Rated4out of5byfromGood Poles!When I first tried this product out after picking it up at the store, my initial instinct was to return it. The locking mechanism wasn't easily seen. It's not one where once you unfold the poles, everything clicks into place. We (the salespeople and I) realized that once you get the pole unfolded, you have to pull the grip/handle up a bit and that's when the locking device kicks in. It is incredibly lightweight. I used it for the first time today at Zion National Park and did like it. It also has a little travel bag to put the poles into once it is folded up, which I do like.

    Rated1out of5byfromUseless in Antarctic cruise ship landingAs aids to walking during our Antarctic landings, they were useless. Several guides tried to help us out but were unable to make them functional. We left them behind in our ship cabin. Perhaps someone else can make them work.

    Rated3out of5byfromHandle strap broke almost immediatelyThe handle strap broke off the right hiking pole just after 1 day of hiking. It simply fell off with only light use of one day of new poles. I was forced to suboptimally use them for the rest of the 7 day hiking trip. Upon my return, REI fully replaced the defective pair. Aside from the strap issue, the poles were very light, stable, and easily collapsable. I am hoping the new pair will last a long time, since in general these seem like good poles.

    Rated4out of5byfromAWESOMEI've hiked about 650 miles with these poles, they are lightweight, extremely durable for the construction and easy to use. The only suggestion I have for these is to install the carbide tips. The rubber tips that come installed (the carbide tips are in the bag) wear down after about 100 miles.

    Rated5out of5byfromSturdy and lightBought to use on ultra trail runs and training, and they work great! Very lightweight and easy to carry when not in use, but sturdy and strong when needed.

    Rated5out of5byfromVery LightI'm a regular hiker, however I was planning a big hiking trip in Peru and needed something more light and compact. These fit nicely in my day pack, are super light and easy and quick to assemble.

    Rated3out of5byfromGreat Poles with a flawWe both used these for our Inca Trail hike and the training hikes before going and they were just what we needed. EXCEPT...the wrist straps on both pair are fraying. Disappointed in this and hope to find a pair without this problem.
