    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.

    REI Sahara Convertible Pants with No-Sit Zips - Men's 28" Inseam

    REI Sahara Convertible Pants with No-Sit Zips - Men's 28" Inseam is rated 3.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, but store not helpful So far I like these, but don't know how long the material will last. It's very lightweight which is comfortable, but don't think I'd use them for backpacking or camping. I originally bought a pair at the Tucson store where the smallest inseam they had was 30 which is too long for me. I asked the clerk if they came in 28 and she said no, so I figured I'd have to have them hemmed. When I got home, I looked them up online and found that they do come in 28 inseam which I ordered online. Then I was faced with a 1 1/2 hour RT drive to return the 30's or paying for return shipping. I emailed REI and they would not guarantee return shipping. I was not happy with that situation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pants - Excellent Evolution of Features I have been wearing a version of these pants for several years now. They are the most comfortable hiking/everyday wear pants I own. They are also pretty durable with the only issues I've ever encountered being a broken zipper (my fault), torn front by my dogs razor sharp claws (easily fixed with duct tape), and a chewed up belt buckle (also my dog). The first versions I owned had a sewn-in, narrow belt so the chewed buckle was a problem. The next version had a removable, narrow belt but I didn't like the buckle as much. These have no belt, so you can use your own, wider belt and they changed from a snap to a button closure. I will continue to buy these as long as they make them. I just wish they came in more colors for the 28" inseam.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly cut pants. It's unfortunate the REI stores can't be bothered to stock these in store. They have plenty of space for dozens of XXXXXL pants that never sell, but they can't spare space for a pair of this length in both colors. If they had I could have tried them on in store, found out they were poorly made, and bought something else on Black Friday instead. (discount wasted) The top half of these are from their regular length pants. So basically you have regular tops and short zip-offs. The pants end up looking like you are "sagging" or wearing diapers due to the overly baggy crotches tall rise, and short leg bottoms. The zipper run right across your knee when walking or kneeling. Properly tailored convertibles...the zipper rests right above the knee. The inseam says 28", but it's really more like 29.5". The leg cuffs are just straight tubes, no taper, so they slip under the rear sole of shoes and boots when you hike. So they don't actually work as hiking pants, and since they slip under your footwear and get dirty/muddy anyways, the "no-sit" zips quickly become pointless. Overall these pants are not worth the time or money. The poor cut ends up making these look like parachute pants from the 1980's. REI should shelf these things and go back to the drawing board. Except this time, actually make pants for a male with a 28" inseam. And not just slap short legs on regular-height pants.
