    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Ultimate Survival Technologies Floating Lighter

    Ultimate Survival Technologies Floating Lighter is rated 2.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable in a survival situation The price point for this lighter should be about $5.00. Adjusting the O2 mix at 7,000 feet was tedious and not an operation that you would desire in a survival situation. Without adjusting the oxygen the lighter would strike 1 in 5 times. Any amount of wind would extinguish the flame at that altitude. After adjusting the O2 mix the reliability increased to 3 in 5 times. Even when lit it did not withstand more than 15 mph winds. This lighter also has difficulty igniting at a downward angle. This limitation requires you to construct your fuel source in such a manner that you can light it from beneath. I had difficulty refilling this lighter (it comes empty) with quadruple refined butane. It spilled about 30% of the fuel I tried to fill in it. Directions indicate to refill slowly but my experience was that it spilled more when done slowly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lighter, not survival tool This is not a survival tool. Put a bic lighter & ferro rod in your emergency fire kit(s) but this is the first butane lighter I've ever used that reliably works. It also floats and lights right up out of the lake. I've only used it below 2500 feet of elevation and I've taken it camping, but only to light a smoke.
