    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.

    Mountain Hardwear Plasmic Rain Jacket - Men's is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I nabbed the Plasmic a little over a month ago and I love it. It's lightweight, and the Dry.Q Evap seems to work well too. The water/windproofing is solid and the water resistant zipper works well. The hood is adjustable and fits my Black Diamond Half Dome just fine. I don't get the clammy feel some shells have after wearing it for a while either! Great shell for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rain Shell! After returning several other brand waterproof rain jackets (mainly due to poor sizing issues), I have very happily settled with the Plasmic! The day I purchased the jacket, it endured a heavy downpour for 30 minutes, and performed like expected; no clamminess or perspiration and completely dry. I am 5'7", 140 lbs, and the small is the perfect fit, slim, but not too slim, just enough room for some layering underneath. I recently tried TNF Venture jacket, which also had good reviews, but TNF small fits more like a Medium or Large, which swallowed me. I recommend the Plasmic to anyone who needs a high-performance waterproof jacket, whether urban biking, or trekking through the rainforest, this jacket will keep you dry and comfortable!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for active outdoor people Product did not have any instructions and so it took awhile to discover and figure out their method to adjust the hood and hem. There were also no care instuctions ... and they never answered my email/contact. With a zipper that only goes top-down you can't open the bottom for more movement/freedom/functionality. No breathing openings so your shirt gets wet from the condensation

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wet inside and out I was looking for a rain jacket to keep me dry on my daily bike commute to work. I live in rural Alaska and we have had a fairly wet summer. I was talked out of the Patagonia Torrentshell jacket by an enthusiastic REI employee who was very excited about the Lightweight Dry.Q�?� EVAP nylon that this Mt. Hardware jacket had to offer. It sounded appealing. The light weight and price, as well as the employees enthusiasm on this product reeled me in. I didn't like the color's the women's jacket had to offer, so I opted to go with the Men's small (I'm 5'8" 155 lbs). It fit well, a little tight at the hips, but I wasn't going to complain about that. Plus, I loved the bright green color. After wearing it on a daily basis for 3 months I was left very unimpressed. Even when it wasn't raining out (but very windy) I would come home drenched - in sweat. All of my layers would be soaking. Worse, when it rained, the jacket did not seem waterproof. Within a month of wearing it you could see the water soaking through the layers. My husband bought the same jacket and his seemed to repel the water better than mine, but still shortly after purchase, his started soaking through as well. I quickly got fed up with being wet after every bike ride and decided to return this jacket. I returned it and purchased the Patagonia Torrentshell women's jacket. I have had this new jacket for over a month now and it has been great! Since it has pit zip's I am rarely ever wet when I get off my bike. The difference has been tremendous.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for this quality of product I used as a rain jacket while out on a xc ski tour and the jacket did very well in controlling moisture up to a point. I was happy with its overall performance . I don't usually ski in the rain but the jacket came in very handy. It is lightweight garment with basic features but I can not attest to its durability yet.
