    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 fromEasy and effective I have fiddled with a few different kids harnesses in stores and this one is by far the easiest to get on and adjusted correctly. Seems very comfortable and safe, what more could ask for. The way the straps are oriented keeps them up and out of the way so there isn't a bunch of loose material to deal with.

    by fromFlying Bought this for my 3 year old dare devil. lower price was on the tag in the store and we were charged the higher price but, worth it. The rear tie in point is great for overhangs. My son lets go and gets to fly like superman- he loves it. Older son has petzl harness which is a little more difficult to put on but was cheaper. This one is top of the line.

    by fromimportant safety notice By all accounts, the Fraggle is an excellent harness. But a previous review touts the fun of tying-in your child to the back loop. Parents should note that the back loop is not PPE rated, and is only intended for supplementary control. (It's also a handy way to tether your child when skiing.) Unfortunately, Edelrid's manual gives zero guidance on this.

    by fromSafe and Secure! Having two toddlers and just being occasional climbers ourselves, we really wanted a secure, full body harness for the kids. We are not disappointed. This fits them both very well and is easily adjusted. It fits securely over thier little shoulders and around their bodies. It is soft in all the right places. Great buy.

    by fromThe best harness for young children! Quite simply, this is the best harness for young children. I've worked at a couple climbing walls with young kids, and the Petzl Simba and Oustiti seem the standard for the little ones (so I will therefore make a lot of comparisons). But the Edelrid Fraggle is easily a cut above the Petzl products. First of all, the harness is great for smaller children. I've used it with my child when she was a bit under 3 years, and it worked great. The webbing slack on the Fraggle is cleverly located high up on the shoulder. So even if you have it adjusted down quite a bit for toddlers, all the extra slack will not be dragging on the ground, or get tangled in your child's legs (like it would on the Petzl Simba). While I realize that the Simba is designed for kids over 5, and Ouistiti is for 4 and up, there are not many choices for smaller toddlers and preschoolers. The Petzl harnesses will actually work safely with smaller children (its not like they will fall out of the harness)but the main problem with those harnesses, is all the extra slack on the straps just gets in the way. Of course, you can tie or tuck away the extra slack. But they will invariably become loose again, and get in the way, as a friend of mine (who also climbs with this preschool daughter) advised me. The other great thing about the Fraggle, is that other kids (full body) harnesses are little more than webbing and buckles. The Fraggle actually has some good padding. Probably not needed all that much from a comfort standpoint (kids weigh so little, so not much weight is actually bearing down on the webbing straps). But what makes this a great feature, is that the harness actually keeps its shape. The leg loops stay open, so the harness is much easier to put on than other kids harnesses (which just about any parent will appreciate). And it keeps its shape while in your pack, so it doesn't get tangled and twisted (like other kids harnesses always do). Furthermore, the fit seems comfortable on my child. It appears well made, and I look forward to many more years of climbing with my child with this harness. Bottom line, if you are looking for a harness for a young child GET THIS HARNESS. You will not be disappointed!

    by fromfantstic skiing and climbing I have used it at teh climbing wall and have had great succes with our two year old. What was the big seller was the skiing oportunity. You can attach at each hip so you can help turn them attach as well at the top of the back loop so you cn lift them up.The loops are big enough to go over ski boots which is great if you forget to put the harness on before. Little guy loves skiing with the harness.
