    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 frominitial impressions This is my first impression: The set up is really easy. tent poles are asymmetrical so you just match up the color coded parts on either end. There a slightly odd H clip at the peak that I didn't know what to do with at first until I looked it up. I had the center pole reversed. took tent apart again to reverse the enitire pole set only to realize that the center pole can swivel. duh! Looks good. Easy to set up. Only qualm is the door. I also have a hubba where the door zips sideways and the bathtub floor is slightly lower making getting out or removing items from your tent at night much easier. This tent otherwise is very similar to the hubba but much lighter.

    by fromExcellent Tent I sent a Fly Creek UL1 back, and got the Copper Spur UL1. So much a better tent. Really nice architecture, a pleasure to be in. Don't even bother with the Fly Creek. Too many compromises for the 6 oz difference.

    by fromAwesome Ultralight Tent! I own an REI Passage 1 tent which I gave an excellent review as well in 2012, but at 3lbs. 11 oz. I was looking for a lighter alternative for backpacking and found it in the Big Agnes Copper Spur UL1. This tent weighs in at 2lbs. 3 oz. as a result of the combination of lightweight denier or thickness of the nylon, abundance of mosquito mesh and DAC featherweight NSL poles, hubs, twist clips and tent stakes. I am a big guy at 6'1", 260 lbs. and like the "Hog Series" Big Agnes bags and pads, this ultralight 1 person tent is larger than most and very spacious inside. The tent is 90" long by 42" wide at the head, tapering to 30" wide at the foot and the peak height is 37", all measurements that are very generous for a 1 person tent. I have read several reviews of other respected brands of 1 person tents that complain the slope of the tent at the foot is too restrictive and does not provide enough room for your feet without pushing up and out on the tent. Not so with the Copper Spur which has a taller and wider foot area and hooped pole design. The "rainbow" style door makes for easy entry and exit. The single vestibule has the option of staking down either the left or right side so you can enter or exit towards the head or the foot of the tent. Between the abundance of mosquito mesh and a small vent with a velcro kickstand at the head of the rainfly, air circulation is excellent and condensation was minimal or non-existant. Set up is very easy and intuitive without having to struggle to insert poles into grommets of the tent or footprint. I really like the H clips on the rainfly which clip into the corresponding clips of the tent body rather than using more traditional grommeted straps that you have to "stack" onto the pole ends for the footprint, body and rainfly. It helps make for a very quick and easy set up and take down. I highly recommend the Copper Spur footprint which only weighs 4 ozs. to help protect the lightweight nylon used in the floor from cuts and punctures. Even when combined, the footprint and tent floor are the thickness of some tent floors alone. Like all of the materials in this tent, the zippers are also ultralight and only require a light pull for smooth operation without getting stuck. I have pitched this tent twice and have noticed that when first pitched during the warmer part of the day, the rainfly is nice and taught over the tent poles but as the day goes on, it gets a little relaxed and needs to be re-tightened. I attribute this to the ultralight nylon which seems to have some elastic properties to it but it's certainly nothing that affects the performance and cannot be easily corrected. Lastly, the average cost of this tent and footprint is more than most 1 person, three season tents, but I can tell you that the combination of ultralight materials, compact size and outstanding quality of design and construction make this a worthwhile investment you won't regret.
