    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.

    Salewa Alp Trainer Mid Gore-Tex Hiking Shoes - Men's is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Jury is Still Out.... I really want to like these boots as they are fairly comfortable, light, and appear to be durable. I just got these in the mail yesterday and set off on a hike above Manitou. Before I got to the car to go I noticed just walking around my house that the top 4 eyelets create pressure points on the front of both of my ankles. I tried a few different variations of lacing to see if it helped. Loosening seemed to help a little; thicker socks also helped a little as well. I'm a glutton for punishment so I set off despite the minor pain thinking a little wearing in might help. That didn't help either. I may try them out one more time before returning them. Not sure if I would recommend this product to a friend yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am torn! These boots are great! The construction is great, the look is great, the performance in wet weather is great! Unfortunately, my feet are simply not compatible with these boots. While the fit seemed great at first, something about the heel cup caused much discomfort while ascending steep grades (and I mean steep). Plus, no matter what I did, the tongue would apply uneven pressure to the side of my angle and eventually felt very uncomfortable, but only on the right foot. I just got done with a 3 day backpacking trip over steep ridges, with heavy rain the first day/night, my feet do not have blisters, they stayed dry, and overall feel great after hauling 45 lbs, but the few issues I had out in the field are cause enough to find something that fits my odd shaped feet a bit better. If you have the opportunity, try them on, they may work for your feet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from stood up to nordci summer I ordered theses after using the salewa mountain rapace and realizing they were too warm for summer/ spring hikes. I wore these around the pine barrens several times but I really tested them the past few weeks. I did a mountain climb in the sognefjord region of Norway and they held up to the very steep and often muddy terrain of the Norwegian summer melt season. Immediately after that hike I went fishing in the north sea during some nasty weather. Just like the mountain climb everyone else's feet were soaked and mine were nice and dry. The boat was ankle deep at some points yet my feet were perfectly dry at the conclusion of our 8 hour steam. I highly recomend these boots as I pushed their limits for about a week straight and they were bullet proof

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rivit poped out of the box I was really stoked about these, ordered them and tried them on in the store and they seem good, possible slightly long but worth trying. Took them home and was trying a different foot bed when one of the rivited lace gromets popped off! I havent ever had that happen on any boot. I will try them again, but very disappointed in out of the box problems. I'll post again if I get a better second pair.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy trails Not available in my local REI store, I bought from the web without trying them on for fit. The first pair had two problems; the toe-box was narrow and the topmost speed-lace dug into my angle. Exchanged for a replacement pair, same model, same size ... no problems with the replacement pair. With almost no break-in at all, I wore these for a couple weeks of day-hiking at Olympic National Park, including two nasty bushwhacks, one very steep and the other very boot-sucking muddy. These boots handled everything well.
