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.

Rated5out of5byBennett PrescottfromThis Is The One To GetThis is, as far as I am concerned, the ideally sized and built backpacking cookware set for a couple - even when traveling with a larger group. The 2L pot is compact and light, but plenty large for making coffee for a group and can easily cook pasta or Ramen noodles. Unlike other pots with Teflon non-stick coating, the ceramic coating is durable and can even handle metal utensils if you're not a caveman with it. Like all backpacking gear it's built as thin and light as possible, but by storing so much inside it is unlikely you'll damage it. Adding the coffee press (which, unfortunately, won't pack inside) makes it worth taking with you for a quick summit or an extended weekend trip.
Inside, besides the two well built and thought out mugs with sip lids and bowls, I can fit everything I need to cook and eat except for a fuel canister. I have a small absorbent towel, little bottle of soap, a pair of folding forks and spoons, dish scraper / brush, spices, and stove. The insulated mugs are especially good, and save me a lot of space in my pack. I strongly prefer them to the bowl shaped "mugs" in the popular (and nearly as good) GSI kit.
While I went elsewhere for my stove and other parts of my kit, I am really thrilled with how well thought out and designed for long term use this MSR Trail Lite Duo cook set is.

Rated5out of5byLandslide101fromMSR does it again!!!!!!Im not one who has been crazy about buying a complete cooking system. I've always been more about creating what works best for you. But when I saw this set I had to really give it up for MSR. Lightweight, two person system that is very compact and will do almost anything.Very light, and when paired with the MSR folding untesils its perfect.I used it with my MSR Whisperlite. I also carry a pocket rocket inside one of the cups as a back up. Overall, I have to say Im very impressed. Plan on buying the coffee press that goes with it.

Rated5out of5byCatTfromGreat pot!Used this pot on an 11-day backpacking trip. Stuck stuff to the bottom, and it just wiped off. LOVE the pot. White interior makes it easier to clean. Bowls and insulated cups are a nice plus.

Rated4out of5byjmc0706fromGreat pot, okay bowls and cupsUsed this set backpacking, one of the bowls broke on a rock so we exchanged it for a new set. So far the new set has held up great. I especially like the size of the pot, it is larger than the one we had previously, but still great for backpacking.

Rated3out of5byEricWilfromMostly functionalI purchased the optional coffee press along with the main components. The coffee press does not really pack neatly with the rest of the unit. But it does make a ton of coffee.

Rated3out of5byWonderemfromAverage, OrdinaryI've used this primarily for making coffee also using the French press sold separately and boiling water for oatmeal. The metal clip melted the plastic top at the point of contact.

Rated4out of5byBryan HfromGood cookset, could be greatOverall I really like this cookset, the bowls are just right for size, the clear lid with strainer holes is convenient, and I prefer the ceramic non-stick coating over the teflon you see on most pots. The coating is also white inside, seems to make it easier to see the contents when your cooking/boiling water. I dont care for the mugs, they take up all the space inside the pot and you cant really fit anything inside them. Would be better if the mugs were similar to the bowls so they can nest inside, with secure lids, insulating sleeves, and best of all usable space inside for stove and fuel canister.
