    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 fromTough in Alaska I purchased this at the beginning of field surveys in Alaska to protect my legs and provide some water-proofing to my hiking boots. I can say that it can take a beating! Between black spruce and deadfall these have held up very well! Sadly due to boot shape or bottom of the gaiter, it does not provide a good seal at the boot so water leaks in pretty quickly if you're not careful.

    by fromGreat for keeping rain and snow out of your boots! I purchased these gaiters specifically for a three-day Christmas hike in the Smokies. It rained for eight straight hours on the first day, leaving the ground soggy, and all of the grass and plant life which bordered the trails soaked. During the initial day of downpour, I wore these gaiters under a pair of water proof pants and over my boots which ensured that my feet stayed dry. It was tricky getting them to hang over the final laces of the boots to make sure that the water ran all the way off of the boots instead of funneling into the tongue of the boot. Once i figured the best way to configure the gaiters with the pants and my specific boots, they worked great! For the next two days, I continued to wear the gaiters without the rain pants to keep my boots and hiking pants dry while hiking through wet grass and brush. The gaiters kept me dry, and as an added bonus, provided additional warmth to my feet and lower legs. If you're in the market for a good pair of winter gaiters, i recommend these.

    by fromTop quality! Great quality in the construction. Easy to put on and they stay in place for long days of trekking. I wore them up Kilimanjaro...9 days and plan to use many more times. Good gear!

    by fromExcellent product I purchased these primarily to keep my pants and socks dry while snowshoeing. After researching different brands, I tried these on at a local REI and saw right away why OR gaiters get good ratings (these in particular). While more than I wanted to spend, you get what you pay for. These keep my legs dry AND warm. Any issues putting them on are due more to my lack of familiarity and practice; the more I use them, the easier they are to put on. They do seem to run a tad large; I sometimes wonder if I should have gotten a S, but the M seems to stay in place. My only concern is the longevity of the small belted strap that goes under the boot. With some of my snow boots, there is no arch area on the underside in which the strap could fit and thereby not make contact with the ground as you walk (not an issue when wearing snowshoes). But that's not really a problem with these gaiters, it's a "problem" with my footwear!

    by fromBAD for heavy use in rugged terrain I recently got a pair of these for use in extreemly wet and rugged terrain. At first they worked great. Nice and water proof, easy to use, etc. I was sold. But then after "extended" use... 5 days of hiking through brush they were completly destroyed. BothI recently got a pair of these for use in extremely wet and rugged terrain. At first they worked great. Nice and water proof, easy to use, etc. I was sold. But then after "extended" use... 5 days of hiking through brush they were completely destroyed. Both of the Velcro tabs split and frayed, the boot strap tab frayed, and there were large holes torn in the upper portions from ferns and sticks. Thank you to REI for your wonderful return policy :) If you hike on trails or in grass these are great, but if you are doing some serious work, I recommend that you buy something more durable. of the velcro tabs split and frayed, the boot strap tab frayed, and there were large holes torn in the upper portions from ferns and sticks.

    by fromOR Croc Gaiters, THE industry standard With little technical tweaking over the years, the OR Crocodile Gaiters are the standard that other companies hold themselves to. These are first mentioned when one says the word 'gaiters' and with good reason. I have had the same pair for almost 15 years; and even after ample abuse, they are still as effective as when I purchased them in the late 1990s. They are versatile for multiple seasons, applications, and boot adaptability. Get a pair and see for yourself why these are the real McCoy-other full gaiters are just an attempt at the OR Crocodile design.
