    Item # 844875

    REI Members get back an estimated $ 8.00 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.

    • Ventilation panels in high heat zones keep things cool
    • Rear zippered pocket stores extras
    • The semifitted SmartWool PhD run shorts feature a mid rise and reflective highlights

    SmartWool PhD Long Run Shorts - Men's is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Money I am a marathon runner and I clear around 70 miles per week. In addition, I also exercise about 4 times a week at the gym. At first, I was a bit skeptical about these shorts because of the price (I typically do not like to pay more than $50.00 for running shorts). However, these shorts were absolutely worth it. I strongly recommend that you give these a try. The main pro to these shorts is that they have zero chafing and will conform perfectly to your body. I'm serious, I can run 20 plus miles in these and I do not feel anything (I might as well be naked). Second, I like these because they are a little bit longer and more shapely than traditional running shorts. In other words, you are not going to stick out at the gym as the guy with the all too revealing "short-shorts." There is one drawback, if you are the type that likes a lot of pockets or pocket space, then you will probably be disappointed. In these shorts, there is only one pocket, and it is big enough to hold only one gel pack or a small set of keys.
