      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 fromDidn't work with Merril Grassbow trail shoes No matter how tight I cinched them down, the back of the gaiter rode up over the back of the shoe, causing the fastener at the back to rub against my Achilles tendon. I tried a number of different ways to fasten them, but they kept popping up over the back of the shoe.

      by fromWorst Product Ever After only 40 miles of trail running the bottom strap broke in half. The design does not allow it to be used on trail running shoes although it is advertised and shown in the photo that it does.

      by fromSo far so good I have only used for one trail run and so far they work fine. I was concerned that back of the gaiter wouldn't stay in place but it hasn't been an issue. Regarding person with a fastener at the back that rubbed - These only have one fastener which should be placed in the front to hold the gaiter to the shoe laces. It sounds like that review isn't for the same product or the gaiter was worn in reverse of how hit should be worn.

      by fromSaved my run! I use these on training trail runs and recently on a 20 mile trail race, kept my shoes debris free! Love the fact that they repel water rather than get soggy like the fabric versions. Solid construction, fit my trail runners and my hikers.

      by fromGreat trail gaiters! Bought them for a 20mi trail race. Met all expectations!Kept all debris and pebbles out of my shoes. Great fit, didn't feel them on my 5, 10, and 20 mile runs. The fabric is water resistant, so slashing through creeks is not an issue.
