    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.

    Inova X3A Front Bike Light is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very bright for the price I find this light very much brighter than the 2watt Mako that I was using last year, for about the same price. The gear tie attachment is covered in soft rubber and it stays secure on the handlebars. The high/low/blink control is by turning the end cap in kind of a weird way which is a little annoying but otherwise this is good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad, but probably not for the pros This is the best light that I have owned. But, if I had to use it often, I would have gone with something else, perhaps with rechargeable batteries. The ties are the same as the nite iz ties. So, replacing them if needed would be easy. I don't like how you have to turn the end of the light/cap end to turn it on and for different options as doing this while riding would be hard. The light itself works as indicated on the package as far as distance and brightness on full batteries. I can't comment on battery run time yet. I don't plan on using this often, so it's great for the price and it works better than other lights I've owned in the price range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome light for the price!! definitely lives up to it's 175 lumen claim. Works great as a hand held light for camping/exploring. It's super versatile. You can mount it just about anywhere. Mount is solid. great light for the price. Mode/power switching are a little bit cumbersome as the end of the light body must be tightened to engage power, then cycled to change from high/low/strobe mode. Momentary switch is nice on the end of the light. could use a wider beam for off road, but great for on road use.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great holster, terrible user interface I use this almost every night for my evening ride home or if I go down to Battery Park in Manhattan at night. I LOVE the holster style for this light. It goes on securely, and is easily removable. This is better than any of the strap-on lights as it's faster to remove and the light doesn't slide off the tracks mid-ride. The light itself is adequate. But the user interface on the light it terrible. I don't know what their engineers were thinking with the twist system. I have a hard enough time twisting it to the right mode before I'm on my bike. Forget about adjusting mid-ride. I would recommend replacing the light with a Maglite XL50. It's brighter, has a much easier Click, Double Click, Triple Click function and I trust Maglite much more. It fits right into the holster slot. Also, available at REI. So...I'd recommend this only for the holster as I can't seem to find a comparable holster for cheap. And buy the Maglite XL50 and use the stock light on this as a backup. Three stars for the holster/twist system. Lost two stars for the terribly engineered light.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Light is OK, the attachment is terrible The wires for attaching the light to handle bar are too weak to hold the light. The light would fall off the bike.
