    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.

    Inov8 Roclite 295 Trail-Running Shoes - Men's is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Built to Last & Easily Handle Trails First off, if I wasn't asked to write a review, I would not have chosen to do this at this time. Repeated medical foot procedures have limited my ability to walk and run; therefore, I have not used these outdoors, but have closely inspected them and worn indoors. I am a fan of Inov8 due to their comfort and practical functioning on the trails. My previous pair (purchased 3 years ago) were made of more supple upper materials. The exterior webbing and mesh were made of soft but strong, non-pinching fabric (no plastic). Since then, Inov8 has replaced these materials with what appears to be something stronger. My impression is they will hold up better, but there may be a little tradeoff of comfort, depending on your feet. The webbing is now made of plasticized (if that is a word) material, which is stiffer than the earlier fabric, and the exterior nylon mesh is made with a tighter weave. The problem for me is that the front part of the webbing runs straight over my big toes, and this causes a little pinching on one of them--my left big toe. A bit of tape seems to take care of that for me though; it certainly does when walking indoors. My guess is the pinching will NOT exist for most people, but it should be mentioned here. The tighter weave of the mesh poses no problem for me and should be a benefit. Other than the web-pinching mentioned above, these shoes are outstandingly comfy and hug the feet. The soles have been upgraded to a stickier rubber, and the cushioning is plenty sufficient for me. The heel to toe drop is between 6 to 7mm, not bad for us who like a moderate drop. The construction and materials appear as though they should allow for wet conditions with modest discomfort while drying relatively quickly. The exterior rand is a nice blend of light weight and strength. It should do its job well. I think I have covered as much as I can, especially given I have not field tested them. Hope this helps.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from great shoe, questionable durability These shoes were great for the first handful of trail runs. They have amazing grip, lightweight, I wish they had a size 12.5 though (I'm normally a 13). I ended up getting a 12 since I prefer a shoe a little smaller rather than too big. The only thing that failed was both shoes blew-out where my small toe is, which is the one part of the shoe where the sidewall reinforcement dips low. I feel that could have been easily avoided in the design process by keeping the sidewall continuous. This may not be a problem for someone with a narrow foot, mine is medium-wide. I would have given 2.5 stars if possible, but rounded up because I think this shoe could be awesome for someone with a somewhat more narrow foot.
