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.

Comments about Novara Trenta eVent Bike Jacket - Men's:
This jacket seems comfortably breathable for a reasonably waterproof shell. The pit zippers are unobtrusive and helpful in improving ventilation.
Comparing side by side, the cut and fit of this jacket is very similar to my previous Novara rain shell for biking (which fits me well) with a couple of notable exceptions. The sleeves are about 2 inches longer than before which for me is entirely unnecessary as the previous cut was plenty long for cycling and I don't really need my fingertips covered when walking around town, but the extra length didn't cause any problems for me.
More of a problem of me is that the arm hole at the shoulder has shrunk considerably (lost 3 inches in circumference) and is now very tight. Worse yet, the tight shoulder area is very restrictive when you try to raise your arms or reach forward for something - handlebars come to mind. This causes the entire jacket to pull up when riding, leaving you with a hunchback of excess material on top of your shoulders and the extended rear flap covering your lower back and your exposed butt getting even more soaked by tire spray. In my previous Novara bike jacket, this was not a problem at all and I'm personally skeptical of the research that shows that people's arms are getting longer and thinner. Overall a nicely built jacket with your arms down at your sides, but unfortunately that's not my preferred riding style, so I'll have to return it and keep shopping.
