    REI Members get back an estimated 10% 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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    If you’re a hiker or camper, you need this book. Why? Because you love your gear and depend on it to make your trips comfortable and safe. In the field, stuff happens, and knowing how to cope can be the difference between a great trip and a miserable one. Plus, your gear should last many years, but only if you know how to keep it working properly.

    This book covers all manner of outdoor gear—from boots and packs to tents, jackets and kitchenware. Learn how to keep your gear finely tuned, properly stored and operating at its best, and how to fix problems yourself—saving you serious money and time. Step-by-step instructions and real-world color photographs walk you through all the repairs. And let’s face it, some things are beyond fixing, even for the most skilled Do-It-Yourselfers, so this book includes lots of advice on what features to look for when shopping for new gear.

    Made in USA.
