    REI Members get back an estimated $ 5.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Light & Motion VIS 180 Micro Rear Bike Light is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could use longer battery life VIZ 180 Micro - 25 Lumens - used as helmet mount rear safety light. It is used along with Light & Motion's VIZ 180 - 50 Lumens - mounted on the seat mast. Too many close calls from drivers behind me. The combination of two flashing lights seems to help with earlier recognition. Most car and truck drivers will now give up some lane space. The con of short battery life applies when the brightest constant on setting used. Most drivers seem to recognize the safety lights on the dimmer/blinking settings.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth and State of the Art "Nit-picking is the pastime of pointing out minor flaws or mistakes." The power button lacks snap-action click feel, so you need to observe the light to cycle through each of its settings. The red honeycomb plastic exterior is a diffuser, but is not a reflector. The orientation of the micro-USB charge port connector is difficult to discern. The attaching tether of the micro-USB charge port cap is difficult to retract. Note: the current REI DESCRIPTION, "Multicolored status light on the Light & Motion VIS 180 Micro rear bike light displays the charge level so you'll know when to recharge" - is not applicable; whereas the manufacturer's Quick Start Guide is accurate - " ... the light will automatically drop down into Pace Line mode to preserve battery life, and the side amber lights will pulse at a faster rate."

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish I had more time with it I only had this light for a few months before it was stolen from me at the gym, but for the few months that I had it I felt safe and confident that the vehicles that are coming from behind me can see me. The amber side lights are a treat and offers great visibility for people on the road. For the price it is a great addition as a visibility light. I plan on buying the model step up from this once I save up enough money.
