    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 fromLightweight but not rugged enough Bought the poles for my Machu Picchu Inca Trail trip last May. I liked its ability to collapse to shorter length to fit my luggage size. Also, high strength aluminum material on the poles withstand well during 4 days trail hike. The tube extension held up well despite my constant adjusting the length as I walked the many steps of Inca trail. However one of the pole plastic tip felled off at the end of the third day. Luckily I didn't need them on the fourth day at Machu Picchu site. Constant poundings on the trail rocky and muddy ground must have loosened up the contact between the plastic and aluminum tube. I wished REI designed more robust contact, like the screw in replaceable tip.

    by fromNice for light hikers Easy to use, nice for the casual hiker who might need a little stability. Grips with the straps are very nice even after a few hours of hiking. Only negative is that I couldn't fold it up and put it in my bag when I wasn't going up or down inclines.

    by fromNice These poles work as advertized. They are comfortable and durable. They set up easily. I liked 'em so much I got a pair for the wife. She loves them. They make a big difference on our aging knees when going up and (especially) down.

    by fromPerfect for the money Do not extend poles beyond extension mark. I broke one pole because I did this. REI took it back no questions. My first real hike through 55 miles of Canyons, would have been difficult without poles.

    by fromMakes the climb easier on the knees I needed something to give me some knee support for the intense uphill climbs San Diego can throw at you and after long hours of research I settled in on these. They work fine, the only shortcoming was I had to tighten the locking clamp after the first trip. I'm pushing 250+, I reckon they don't sell them set for larger bodies but a simple leather man adjustment and we're back on the trail again! Great buy for the price!

    by fromVery Good Trekking Poles First used these trekking poles on a long weekend hiking trip in the north Georgia mountains. I did quite a bit of hiking that weekend and the REI TRAVERSE trekking poles were fantastic. I had always just used a walking stick and never had the benefit of real trekking poles. I was really impressed with how much better the hike was with my new poles. There were some serious incline in sections of the trail throughout the weekend and the Traverse poles made it a lot easier on my body, and mind haha. The grips are very soft and although my hands did start to get a little chafed, there were no blisters whatsoever. And that is after almost 20 miles in two days!

    by fromAmazing tramping poles These were key when doing the Tongariro Alpine Crossing in New Zealand. I would have been blown off the mountain without them. They were easy to pack, adjust and use. They are great for the beginner and well worth the price. If I were an avid hiker I might consider something lighter as it's all about weight when hiking, but they were PERFECT for what we used them for.

    by fromSaved moms knees I bought them for my 60yo mother for what my sister said was an easy 3 mile walk around the lake. It was a strenuous up and down 7.1 map misread that mom handle easily. When she got to the car she said they saved her knees on the way back down.
