    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.

    REI Venturi Shorts - Men's is rated 4.4615 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Colors are Terrible this Year The colors for these shorts this year are terrible. This has prevented me from adding another pair of these to my arsenal of shorts this summer. Overall I like these shorts, or at least the 2012 version of the shorts. Fortunately last year REI was kind enough to provide a less loud version with less contrasting panels. They are very lightweight and feel almost like boardshorts. However, they have added functionality over boardshorts in that they have plenty of pockets, which makes them nice for doing outdoor work and/or errands around town when it's hot outside and you need a lightweight, quick drying pair of shorts. I did find last year's version a bit slim, though. I'm not overweight, but I did manage to bust a seam on these while doing some work outside. Thankfully REI accepted an exchange with no problems and the second pair hasn't been problematic so far. I haven't tried on the current version of the shorts, so I'm not sure if the fit is the same as last year. The major drawback of these is the price, which seems to me to be exaggerated. Definitely wait for a coupon or clearance event. Hopefully REI will update these with some more reasonable color options for people who don't like their shorts to be so loud.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and functional Perfect fit and sizing. Stylish colors and cut. The fabric has a good stretch while maintaining its shape and durability. Exceptional quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good design Good all-around shorts: hiking, climbing, running, sleeping. Stretchy but not sloppy. Kind of expensive, but quality seems worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for! I wear these shorts for everything from work to play, and they perform well. Light and breathable, these shorts take up very little space when packing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts! In the store these shorts felt too soft/flimsy to be anything other than casual, around the mall shorts. On a recent trip to the mountains of WV I threw them in the bag at the last minute. Upon arrival I realized these were the only shorts capable of a mountain hike, compared to the other cotton shorts in my bag. During a 97 degree, humid, seven mile hike I found these shorts to be lightweight, comfortable and quick drying. Now if they come in other colors I will have to get another pair. LOVE THEM.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable Really love these shorts. They are so comfortable both in casual environments and outdoors. My only minor complaint are the colors; the contrasting panels could be a little more muted.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shorts, but a bit expensive Shorts are great, and they fit well. However, for the price I'd expect a little higher quality on the stitching. The threads on the area around the pocket are coming out after only 2-3 months of use. They are still great for now, but it makes me worry about the longevity of the product.
