    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.

    REI Sit Pad is rated 3.5385 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for what it is made for I keep this sit pad in the top pocket of my pack and use it whenever I rest along the trail. It is especially good at keeping you off the wet ground on rainy days and off the snow on winter days. It cleans off easy and I am able to use it in the foot box of my sleeping bag at camp to add insulation under my feet. This allows me to carry a 3/4 Thermarest without sacrificing comfort and warmth. As for durability, I have used it to sit on rough rock, dirt, snow and gravel. You name it and I have used it there. It has shown no signs of negative wear. I even use it, deflated, to stand on when I have to change clothes outside of my tent. It just wipes clean and any stains it receives are just signs of serious use and are of no bother. If any malfunction does arise I rest assured that I can simply return it to REI without any questions asked and they will replace it immediately.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from defective? after repeated use in a span of a few weeks, this has bulged apart at the ribs creating a big 'bubble'. This is unacceptable and will be returned for a replacement which I hope will function correctly for many years, not days.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great while it lasted I picked this up as a return item, the reason for the return was "poor design", figuring it was worth giving it a shot at half the normal price for a 6 day backpacking trip. The pad worked great for both sitting and, when folded in half, as a pillow. That was until day 4, after the pad got wet a few times due to rain, when the foam insulation in the pad began to peel off of the outer material. This left a bubble in the pad and made the pad unstable to sit on. The peeling got worse on subsequent days until I stopped using it all together. I give it 2 stars because, while it lasted, it was a nice and versatile pad and would give more if the durability could be improved.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! i use it all the time during down time on rock climbing trips, hiking, picnics, anywhere i want to sit for a while...if i get up, it is always prompt taken by another person looking for an extra layer of fact i am considering buying an extra for all those that try and steal it from me :) it can fly away, so i would love to see a ring or loop so i could link to other gear in the future also, i bring it anytime i will need to sit on a bleacher or on the ground, soccer or baseball game - also helps the cold not get through as much also, at this moment looking for the best way to clean soot off of it...any ideas?

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from REI Sit Pad Picked one of these to use as a sit pad and foot insulation for hammock camping. Leaky valve ended the fun, and no repair parts make this great little idea merely an idea...Will by brands that have parts available in the future. If the valve were repairable it would merit 4 stars minimum.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but frivolous for backpacking Four of us recently brought these on a 5-day backpacking to Yosemite. Only 1 of us bothered to get it out and use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver I bought this pad while rehabilitating tailbone/SI joint/piriformis muscle injury and it has been a life saver for me. I can inflate to any level of support and have taken it everywhere. Easy to deflate and inflate and fits in my purse or briefcase. Gray color does not stand out at all and most people do not even notice I'm sitting on it. I've had it a year and no leaks or tears. Great price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I have used the REI sit pad for years. I have difficulty sitting comfortably for extended periods of time and this cushion has been great. I use it at my kitchen table as well as my car every day. I have used it for extended road trips and short errands. This is a very good value for the money and I highly recommend it.
