    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.

    Novara Exposure Double Bike Shorts - Men's is rated 3.8571 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value for the price I have to admit that the price is what drew me to these shorts initially. And having them to try on at my local REI was a great benefit. Being new to mountain biking but riding 3 times a week, I have been buying a wide assortment of brands of shorts and other apparel to see what I prefer. These are my second set of Novara, and as with the first pair they have some of the best padding that I have ridden. I also like the way that the two zipper pockets have the zipper hidden. That makes the shorts lay nice and flat and smooth and provide quick access to either a phone or GPS. These are a set of inner and outer shorts with the feature that they are very loosely attached (4 places) and could be separated easily if so desired. A very nice touch! The adjustable waist band seems to be a little huskier and "grippier" then some of the others that I have tried and stay in place quite well. They are a lighter material and fit nicely, moving with me as I pedal. When the weather turns warmer they should do nicely. As mentioned above I would have liked a few more belt loops because I wear my shorts loose for less binding and as such wear a belt or under-the-shirt suspenders. But even with this drawback at that price, I will probably buy another pair soon. Great Job Folks!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent fit, poor integrity Wore on a recent 2 day outing to the Umpqua - Dread and Terror and Dear Leap. The shorts did help with the bumps and decreased chaffing. The fit well. Noted that after just 2 rides the seams were starting to unravel with stray threads sticking out. No holes yet but they don't inspire confidence. Hope they hold up.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not an improvement I have the original single padding version of these short (which REI no longer sells) they are great. These double padding shorts are no good for riding their is simply too much padding. REI, why not start making the originals again? BTW the newer style version, do not fit the same, too bad...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from happy purchase Had been looking for awhile to buy mountain biking shorts and these were a deal to $100 Fox or other brands. Would wear a medium bibs at a 32-33 waist but went for LARGE and I'm super happy. Shorts are very comfortable and once i cut our the chamois from the thick attachment cords I wear the shorts all the time around town. Size velcro tightens waist nicely without need to wear a belt. hasn't helped my ridding, but i get out much more.
