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.

by fromExcellent cover that does its job I purchased this cover for my son's North Face pack. It was great because the other sized covers available at the store were grey, which matched my pack, but this one was orange matched his pack perfectly. We used it on a 3-day backpack trip with his Boy Scout troop and it did what it was supposed to. It compresses down into its container very well and covers his pack when needed. Fortunately we were not rained on, but we put it on at night just in case. We'd stuff some other items under it to keep them dry as well.

by fromWould give it a zero but THis did not stop water at all. I was in Spain walking the camino and used this product solid for a week as it rained everyday for a week. It was so bad the first day I stopped got a garbage bag and put that underneath it to keep the rain off my pack. Thankfully REI will take the item back as it did not function the way it was supposed to at all. I can not recommend this product at all sadly.

by fromSoaked through after 1-2 hrs in a light/moderate r I've had this cover out in the rain a couple of times; both times, the cover was completely soaked through, leaving me with a wet pack with drenched contents. The first time, I gave the cover the benefit of the doubt, as I was hiking through a day of torrential rains and gusty winds in the Wicklow Mountains. Second time out, it was on the AT with only a light to moderate rain. By the time we stopped for lunch (only an hour or two after the rain started) my pack was already wet, and it was drenched when we stopped hiking for the day. Really disappointed in this cover and would not recommend it to anyone; planning to replace it asap.

by fromDoes the job, fits my 50 liter backpack The REI professional in the store suggested I go a little bigger, so it would fit over the things on the outside of my pack such as a pad or tent. So, I got this 60 for my 50 liter backpack. Excellent advice. Some people use these all the time for protection, especially the bottom of the pack. I use it when it rains.
