    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.

    by fromdon't let the staking issue hinder you I have owned and used a similar tent for years. Don't let the need to stake out the bottom end of the tent stop you from getting this tent. If you are someday bedding down on a rock, you can simply use a trekking pole across the bottom to firm it up. If you don't use poles, then just cut a little willow branch or the like or find a couple of rocks and use any one of those. It is really a non-issue.

    by fromThey had some good ideas, but.... I originally bought this tent based on a few of its strengths. It is very light weight for the space it provides, equiped with dual entry/vestibules, and seems well built. However, once I set it up in my living room, I was not convinced that the frame design wouldn't cause some issues down the road. My main complaint is that the frame does NOT support the two corners of the tent by your feet. It transitions to a single ridge down the middle and will absolutely require two stakes at that end to even make the space useable/livable. Otherwise the walls just flop loosely towards the middle. Over the years I have set up camp in numerous locations where the ground was so rocky that tent stakes were not an option on all corners of the tent. If that were to be the case, then this 2 person tent quickly becomes a 1 person tent down by your feet. It is unfortunate that the frame design could use some rethinking, because I think the concept of this tent is heading in the right direction. If the frame would have just pegged out all 4 corners it would have been a keeper.

    by fromLight & Fast This tent is light and great for being on the move. Easy to set up and tear down - the pole design makes setting up self-explanatory and it can go from fully set up to rolled away quickly. I would recommend this tent to anyone who is looking for a lightweight & sturdy piece of gear. It is a bit narrow, but I'm ok with that due to the weight (or lack thereof!).

    by fromPerfect lightweight tent for 2 people! Great tent for the weight and room! Love it! My girlfriend and I recently slept in it over the weekend while camping, and had plenty of room. I got it because I needed the extra length (I'm 6'2) and it had plenty. even a little room at either you're feet or head. Dual vestibules works great for easy access and more room for you're packs on both sides. Only down side as others said, was that you must stake down the bottom tent corners. Wasn't an issue for us, but if it was, a rock would do the trick holding it in place a bit. Tent is the highest quality tent I've had. Great materials, lightweight and packs up small. Also was impressed by the nice stakes it came with.
