    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.

    Merrell Proterra Mid Sport Gore-Tex Hiking Shoes - Men's is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good Hiking Shoe That Got Better. This is the second pair of Proterra Mids that I have owned and the ONLY boot that allows me to hike / walk without pain. The only other option was surgery for Morton's Neuroma and a dropped fourth metatarsal head. Naturally, I'm elated to have a non-surgical solution. The new Gore-Tex design and new lug design are upgrades without sacrificing the incredible comfort of this hiking boot. The boot does not require breaking in, took mine out for a 14+ miler right out of the box. I wore through the original pair within 6 months, though the new Gore-Tex fabric and bottoms seem to be an upgrade, time will tell how they hold up. I believe that these boots strike a nice balance of exceptional comfort, yet very solid and supportive in the most demanding trail or off trail conditions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a minimalist hiker! I have a pair of Merrell minimalist casual shoes so I ordered the same size. The Proterra's just felt a bit tight. I spoke to a customer service rep and he explained the Gore Tex shoes run about a half size small because of the membrane. I sized up and they fit great! I didn't need a break in period and was able to wear them right out of the box. Been in the snow and rain so far and they kept me dry.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inadequate tongue gusset Was extremely disappointed to find that the tongue is not fully gusseted (only covers the forefoot). In terms of "waterproofing" these are simply shoes. Water or snow melt would easily seep inside the boot. There is no point in making a gore-tex boot without a gusseted tongue. Returned due to this fact alone. Also doesn't seem to lock the heel in place well despite several different attempts with the common lacing techniques. I can see this causing trouble on steep terrain. Otherwise they fit well and are comfortable and seem to be well made. Bottomline: better off wearing regular Proterras or equivalents so your feet breath and if you need "waterproof" boots go elsewhere.
