    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 fromPoles are essential I bought my poles approximately 3 years ago and have used them on every hike since. I highly recommend them because they are light, so easy to adjust on the fly during a hike, and extremely durable. However, in order to make best use of any poles, I would also recommend viewing POLES for Hiking, Trekking & Walking, which can be found on line. My only negative comment is that I can't buy tips or baskets at REI for these poles.

    by fromGreat. These are great poles. Stiff, durable, and light weight. The wrist straps are particularly excellent. For tarp and floorless shelter users like me, I want a pole that is substantial enough that I can rely on it for longer, harder hikes through snow where I'll be bracing myself heavily on the poles and also need them for my shelter. These are expensive because they're light *and* tough. Perfect.

    by fromSo far so good Picked these poles up to replace my old poles. The adjuster locks work extremely well and the poles feel great. Extremely light and comfortable.

    by fromTrekking poles This is the first time that I have used trekking poles. A few of my friends who have hiked and backpacked have told me that they are indispensable, and I have found out that is true. They are lightweight, and being adjustable, very easy to get the right height. They are very comfortable as well. I am still getting used to using them, but so far they have been a real blessing.

    by fromAlmost perfect Good poles but couple issues. The clips don't hold at the very bottom of the poles unless you stop and re-tighten them more. The clips have to be opened ALL the way in order to slide the lower sections. All that said, they have worked well otherwise, and I expect them to give the great service I've had from the other half-dozen Black Diamond poles I've had.

    by fromSo far so good Used over quick overnight trip to Yosemite in 3 feet of snow. 5 miles in and 7 miles out of snowshoeing on overnight stay in upper Mariposa Grove near the south entrance. Easily adjustable and joints never slipped and stayed locked in even under duress. I removed the slings on the grips to make more usable and lighten the load by driving out the metal pin in the handle.
