    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.

    Oboz Wind River II BDry Hiking Boots - Women's is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Getting Used to the Height This boot goes up my ankle higher than any other boot I own so the break-in has been a bit more difficult for me. I endured bruising on my lower shins for the first several outings in these boots. However, normally my feet blister easily, especially my heels, and I am happy to say that these boots haven't given me a single blister! I am breaking these in before a nine day 130 mile hike through Ireland's County Kerry and I have high hopes that these will be the perfect foot ware for the trek. My shoe size varies from 8-9, I went for size 9, thinking I could wear a normal hiking sock and have a little bit of wiggle room and could still wear a thicker sock in winter, if need be. I have been very pleased with the sizing thus far. This is an incredibly waterproof boot! On my first outing in them we went nine miles on a rainy day and crossed many streams. I submerged both feet, multiple times, and once back at the car found that my feet were mostly dry! I haven't done a winter hike in these boots but did bring them along on a recent trip to MN, where a mid-April snowstorm made for a cold visit. I wore them to an outdoor baseball game with temps in the high 20s with a normal pair of hiking socks and was surprised at how warm my feet stayed. The others I went to the game with complained readily about their cold toes, whereas I was comfortable! I was surprised at how lightweight these boots feel when on my feet and how much longer my legs last when carrying a load of about 20lbs. Overall I am very satisfied with my new boots thus far!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream Boots I never thought i would find a pair of boots that were sylish, comfortable, and durable. I have a high instep and wide set foot as well as a faulty ankle so support was imperative in a pair of backpacking/hiking boots. I have only used them for spring and summer hiking and so far, I love them. They appear to hold up to their waterproof claim and have kept my feet nice and dry. I have had no problems breaking them in, they seem to form to my feet nicely...bo blisters, chaffing etc. would highly recommend!! P.S. Normally wear size 8, and 8.5 was perfect with thicker socks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Ankles I injured both Achilles tendons wearing minimalist shoes. Loved them, but I have problems with over pronation and - while there's two schools of thought on this - the shoes did not help build ankle strength, but caused tendon damage. So - I bought these strictly because of the article in Backpacker re: how good they are for ankle support. I really needed to lock my ankles in place. I did NOT buy them to use them for any specific activity (hiking, etc.) and so can not review them on the basis of activity. However, the instant I put them on I had relief - pain gone, and more importantly, so was the tension I hadn't realized I had been holding trying to keep the ankles in place without support. They seem to be doing the trick for now - wearing them from the moment I get up until I go to bed in order to stabilize the ankles and let the tendons heal. Will update later as to success. The only slightly "con" comment I would make is the toe box is slightly narrower than I'm used to (usually wear Birkenstocks) - but still bought true to size. I usually wear a 7 - tried both 7 and 7.5 to increase toe wiggle room - but the larger size did not lock in ankles as needed. Hoping the shoe will give a little in the box...
