    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.

    The North Face Apex Washoe Shorts - Men'sis rated4.25out of5by4.
    Rated4out of5byfromBack for a second pair in another color.I do a lot of hiking in the Rockies in the summer, and now wear quick-dry stretch shorts pretty much exclusively for everyday summer purposes. Prana Zion has been my #1 choice for years, but the limited colors can be frustrating. I found these at my local REI in the brown color, and really enjoyed the comfort. The fabric is very light, which will come in handy on those hot Phoenix days. I usually wear a 34 waist and found that the 32s fit me better in this model. Very, very comfortable, and quite nice looking. One caution, the brown color is a good bit lighter in person than it is on the website. Haven't received my green pair yet, but I anticipate it'll be lighter than pictured as well. One thing the Prana Zion has over this model is the superior built in belt on the Prana. You can take off the pants without undoing the belt, whereas on the North Face, you have to undo the belt to take the pants off. Otherwise, very happy with my purchase.

    Rated5out of5byfromNice Fit and lightVery comfortable, the fabric is a little strech so feels very comfortable. The short goes just over the knee, so you can do big steps without problem. The fabric is super light and dries easily. Comes with its own belt with a small buckle that works perfect with your backpack waist belt

    Rated4out of5byfromcomfy but pockets are very looseShorts are a good fit and look good. But the biggest problem I have is that putting your wallet or cell phone in the front pockets leads to a lot of swing in the pockets while you walk. It's like the fabric is too light or something

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat ShortsThese shorts are lightweight and very comfortable. They are also very durable. I've worn them on several 6 to 10 mile hikes and they show no sign of wear. They handle the brush and rocky terrain easily. The last hike was a long ten miles in pretty warm weather. They felt comfortable the whole time, did a great job wicking away the sweat and there was no chaffing.
