    Item # 848248

    REI Members get back an estimated $ 9.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromBest day pack I've ever owned I really like this pack, had been seeking a replacement "vintage" (4 years old) ems pack that had a similar style when i came upon this pack. It looks, feels, and works great. Easy to load and solidly holds enough for any day trip or hike.

    by fromAwesome backpack Picked this up as a camera back pack for my dslr. I haven't traveled extensively with it but the wide selection of pockets and the rucksack style is really convenient! I think the backpack feels a bit small so make sure to try it on before you buy it

    by fromGreat backpack! I love the rucksack feature! Wouldn't use this for a technical day hike but it works well when I am traveling. Haven't used the insulated pocket but it is a cool feature! So many pockets!
