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 REI Heavyweight Tights - Women's:
I visited my local REI specifically looking a mid weight base layer, for an upcoming backpacking trip in Yosemite. I've spent a freezing night with lighter weight base layers, and wanted to make sure I was plenty warm. I admit, I was a bit skeptical when the REI associate recommended these, as they seemed a bit thin. I was pleasantly surprised to find out they were plenty warm.
I had previously purchased a prior style of REI mid weight base layers, and they were considerably thicker than these, and kept me toasty warm. These are superior when it comes to wicking ability, (thankfully), but the previous style was a tad warmer, and softer against the skin. That aside, these were more than adequate, and were comfortable to wear under another layer, which the previous style was not.
The real plus on this style is the high waist. It was really nice to be able to tuck a top into these, and not have them come out in the middle of the night, (freezing my back). The top stayed tucked in all night, and was surprisingly comfortable. This is a solid mid weight base layer, and much less expensive than some other brands, making them a real winner in my book.
The one thing I would caution, is that these are great as mid weight base layers. I would strongly disagree that they are functional as heavy weight. As long as you don't expect heavy weight performance, they are just fine, and very comfy.
