    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 Drifter 2 DP Tent is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tent I have had this tent out a few times with temps ranging from low 20's to mid 40's. I am very satisfied. It is long, so taller occupants shouldn't have much problem (although it is also just slightly narrow). The two roomy vestibules do not require separate poles (saving weight). It can be staked down if you expect wind. I can put it up without help in about 7 minutes. I have noticed some condensation in very cold weather, but nothing out of the ordinary.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall I ordered this tent because I was replacing a smaller tent I owned previously. I caught it on sale, though I was looking for the rei quarter dome 2 plus but it wasn't on sale at the time. I'm 6'7 so finding a tent that's long enough, doesn't cost an arm and a leg and not heavy is not easy. Some awesome things about this tent are the clips that hold everything together, the fact that it has a dry pitch capabilities, and it comes with the footprint. The only real issue I have with this tent is the condensation build up on the inside of the tent in the morning, granted I didn't have the guy lines attached so that might have been why. I've only used it once so far with perfect weather and temperature so I'm wondering how it'll do in serious weather. Overall I would recommend this tent to everyone

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent for the money This is a good basic tent (with footprint and gear loft) at an excellent price. The fly completely covers the tent (down to the ground), which makes it water tight. For me, the two doors and two vestibules are critical as they provide easy access, excellent cross ventilation, and lots of room for gear, dogs, etc. I have used this in hot humid conditions and the ventilation was excellent. For my son (6'4""), the extra length provides plenty of leg room. Set up is quick and easy, though I found the clips (footprint and fly) a bit difficult to snap on and off. Having clips for the footprint is a nice touch though. We also own the Skyledge, which is a much nicer/lighter tent (but also more expensive). Mountain Hardware is making great stuff.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Basic Tent This was my first tent and I've used it a couple times now. Very good basic tent to have, it's easy to set up and comfortable on the inside with a attachable gearloft and plenty of room. The only complaint would be the lack of ventilation when the rainfly is on. The lack of ventilation also caused quite a bit of condensation to build up in the tent. I was in the Black Hills for a weekend and it was raining every night so it got very humid inside the tent and my sleeping bag got damp.
