    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 of5byfromVasque Hiking boots - comfortableMy feet are difficult to fit - wide, with high arches. The Vasque hiking boots are about as comfortable as I've found. Would have been nice to be a little lighter, but I was looking for medium weight, which I think they are.

    Rated4out of5byfromDoublecheck fitI'm 74 and breaking in a pair doing some trail work in preparation for a PCT journey. So I have to be confident in my boot choice. After two weeks they are starting to become more pliable but the left boot does not seem to be an equal match to the right, or my feet don't match. Some reviewers complain of small toe pinch or pain. In my case it is only in the left boot. I wear an 81/2 shoe so chose a 91/2 but should probably have chosen a 10. I don't have a wide foot but a wider boot would certainly be more comfortable. You will certainly need to add insoles. I will probably return these to find something with a better fit. A good boot but not from mail order you need to have a careful fitting with hiking socks on and remember you will need enough room to add insoles.

    Rated3out of5byfromPros and consOut of the box these boots were comfortable. I needed no breakin time. That was a first for me. Like a couple other users, I added insoles for better padding on my old knees. Please note. My boots are not waterproof. Not even close. Sometimes even in rain my toes end up wet. I contacted Vasque twice and never heard back. I didn't get these from REI (Gift), but I'll be replacing them with a pair from REI. If you want a comfortable pair for dry hiking, these will work. But for the money, you can probably get a truly waterproof pair.

    Rated4out of5byfromExcellent, so far!For AT hike this spring/summer. Got b4 Christmas and have been using during my training. I am 58 and have arthritis in my feet. These were hard upon receipt but I replaced the insole with a "Work" type. Also, needed more flexibility so I put on Yankz. This allows the top of the boot to give a little on up/down hill trek. So far, over 600 mile in rain, snow, heat, gravel, sand, cornfields and mudholes. Feet have stayed dry. warm and comfortable. Clean easily with a quick brushing. Tread does not "self Clean" and I had some traction issues on slippery mud. After tread packed up had to stop and clean. I plan on using these on the AT, leaving in 3 weeks. Will update when I get back.

    Rated1out of5byfromNot terribly impressedI got a blister on my left pinky toe just walking around the yard and sitting at my desk. My own experience is unique, however some other people may have the same problem. The toe cap stops right at the knuckle in my pinky toe and I took the shoes back within 24 hours. I come from a Vasque Wasatch GTX, and that shoe is no longer manufactured, I did manage to find my size online though through intensive internet search. Anyhow, this boot is not a good replacement. I have heard that Merrills are the boot to go with if you are having touble with Vasque. Good Luck!

    Rated3out of5byfromDidn't work me!I really wanted to like this shoe - bought them for my hike to Machu Picchu in April 2014. I have broad feet and they are available in "wide" as well. But after only a couple of miles of hiking in them, I started to feel the lip of the shoe digging into my the side of my ankle bone. I returned them in exchange for a pair of Keen and happy so far.

    Rated5out of5byfrom100-mile review (more or less. . .)About 100 miles in, these boots are the best I've owned. Used mostly for day hiking but also backpacking, including a 20-mile overnight almost literally out of the box (wore around the house the night before). No visible signs of wear and the waterproofing is holding up well -- includes muddy trails and stream crossings, although I haven't tried all-day rain (as another reviewer did). Breathability is fine. Fit is great - they stay in place up top with enough room for my somewhat-wide foot below, including with a variety of socks. . .I usually hike with a liner sock and thicker outer sock, but will also throw on thin athletic socks to walk in the snow close to home. I like the mid-height; it's enough ankle support for backpacking without getting too heavy. As always with boots, no substitute for trying out in person, including different sizes and styles. . .
