    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 fromNot so hot Great helmet for it's light weight, yet extremely ineffective when the buckle doesn't stay connected while you are climbing. If you are an outdoor climber, this helmet is not for you.

    by fromBuckle Issue Had a really hard time rating this product. On one hand it's: Pro's: 1) Ultra-lightweight (about as much as your average quick-draw) 2) Breathability (I live in the southeast, and my past helmets have made me sweat to no end. The Sirocco breath so much better than all of them.) 3) From watching the product video it can take a beating so your head doesn't, but... Con's: 1) SAFETY: The magnetic buckle has a tendency to come undone, and the helmet falls off... 2) SAFETY: The male portion of the buckle also is very very fragile (a thin 1mm piece of plastic at the male pinch portion.) Climbed for 5 days with my brand new helmet, and the buckle had already broken... Luckily, I brought my old helmet (3+ years no problems) to act in its place. Overall, I really want to use this helmet for all types of climbs (particularly multi-pitch), but the safety margin isn't there with the buckle. I really enjoy Petzl's products - using quite a lot of them myself, and this is the first to disappoint. *Note: Petzl will send you replacement male buckle and it's easy to replace... I just wish it was better designed.

    by fromGreat Helmet I have had great luck with this helmet. I read previous reviews and personally have had no issue with the buckle. I don't think this is the most stylish product on the market, but incredibly comfortable and light. I have forgotten to remove it at the end of the day (winter time), it is that comfortable. It does show signs of wear fairly quickly, small nicks and dings from ice climbing and travel. All light weight helmets are basically one use jobs if you take a bit hit, but good to inspect them regularly to see if there any cracks. No question a more traditional plastic helmet will be a lot more durable for day to day use. I use this light one for climbs when I'm trying to save weight or if it is really hot out. Overall I think this is a great helmet and despite being very skeptical initially I have really grown to love it despite looking like a traffic cone!
