    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 fromNot the same fit as the 106 After three pairs of the 106 from REI, I went to REI for another, but found the 109 on the shelf instead. Tread is identical, upper is similar, basic sizing/fit seemed the same (12.5/12.5), so I got a pair of 109s. Having worn them past break-in, I'm returning the 109s because the on-the-trail feel is completely different from the 106. I feel rocks more than with the 106. The throat closes together more when snugging the laces, suggesting the upper is cut way different (not the same last?). Even with the laces snug, I have to wear a thicker sock because the 109 feels roomier side-to-side. But the fit is still different. Overall not as comfortable. I want a 106.

    by fromGreat Shoe I put these on and immediately went for a hike. They felt perfect and didn't need to be broken in. They look good, too.

    by fromThird pair in 5 years. They never truly wear out, just breakdown as they all do. I still have all three pairs and use the old ones for times when I do not need the solid base these provide in all terrains.

    by fromJack of all trades, master of none As a hiking shoe, good toe protection on the trail, but lacking in lateral stability. As a trail runner, just too heavy. It's a good all purpose shoe to wear on light trails and around town, in rain and snow/slush (presuming it's not too cold--these aren't insulated). But for trails, I was more impressed with the Salomon offerings.

    by fromGreat Trail Shoes These shoes are great off trail too! I wish they had the lace system that Solomon uses for their trail shoes, which I think is the best out there. The tread is very aggressive, which what I wanted. The shoes have a great toe box that's very comfortable, and they have a Gortex foot bag. They're not a great bargain, but they're equal to or better than the best trail shoes.

    by fromJMT Approved 4.5 stars I wore these shoes while doing a John Muir trail thru-hike. While other members of my group were busy taping their heels/toes and still getting blisters, I did not get a single blister caused by these shoes. I used these shoes for several training hikes and the JMT, so I probably got around 300-400 miles out of these without a blister. I also don't change my socks very often. Maybe 2-3 times a week, or sometimes when my socks got wet. I guess I'm a rebel. Deducting .5 stars for- After first use, some of the stitching fell apart, causing leaks during creek crossings After ~150 miles, they started losing grip After ~300 miles, they're pretty much done.
