    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.

    Tifosi Veloce Fototec Photochromic Sunglasses - Men's is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pair of riding glasses A buddy of mine had a similar pair sunglasses with photochromic lenses. I never ride without eye protection and here in AZ we have to do everything we can to stay out of the heat of summer. This often requires riding outside the normal daylight hours. Obviously, this generates a problem with normal eye protection which is typically a pair of dark of sunglasses. I saw a sale on another website for these glasses with the photochromic lenses and thought, "that's what I need" but know from past experience to never buy a pair of sunglasses without trying them on. Did a quick search of the REI site and they showed up and were in stock at the REI closest to me. Went down, tried 'em on, bought 'em, and now wear them for every ride. They are both good looking and comfortable. At their lightest they are virtually transparent which works perfectly for early morning or after dark rides. In the full sun they don't look terribly dark in comparison to most sunglasses but they eliminate more than enough light so that I'm never squinting at the trail. I've worn them with a half-shell and full-face helmets and are equally comfortable under either lid. My only complaint is one that is common to just about every other pair of sunglasses or goggles known to man. They fog up relatively easily. They have a little "vent" near the hinge which I suspect is supposed to help with this but it does nothing towards that end. Maybe they are designed for roadies that average higher speeds and thus more air circulation? Unfortunately, us MTBers have to work a little harder than roadies do...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value Purchased for road cycling. As I often leave early and also have a few quite shady routes, the photochromatic lenses are appreciated. No need to swap lenses. The lenses do not get overly dark, but seem to darken just enough to see comfortably in bright sun. They fit my fairly large face well. They are advertised as being adjustable fit, but there are not instructions on adjustment. I have only had to make slight "tweaks" to the fit by gently bending the temples. They are very light, comfortable, and stay on, even when perspiring. They seem to be a very good value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my early morning windy runs. I needed these glasses for running in the dark. My eyes are sensitive to wind and using my regular bike glasses with their tinted lens didn't work real well. I regret I didn't buy them a long time ago.
