    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Aquamira Water Treatment Drops is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used on Camino de Santiago Used the product while on the Camino de Santiago, in a 3 liter bladder. Always fresh tasting water... kept the bladder clean and free of 'stuff' ... while several other hikers got sick from the supposed 'potable' water, I never had a problem. Lightweight & 100% reliable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best water treatment ever I was surprised that it took REI so long to start carrying Aquamira. I have been using this product for many years. I have used it mostly in Minnesota and in the Grand Canyon. I have NEVER gotten sick while using it and believe me, I have even drank water that I had to fight beavers to get. Water that came from puddles in dried up river beds etc. Every other method that I used failed at one point or another (UV, pumps filters). The best water I have tasted in my life was coming out of a swamp on the Superior Hiking Trail and treated with Aquamira!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I'd like to point out that most water filtration systems (I use Katadyn's Hiker PRO water filter) are only moderately effective against bacteria and NOT effective against waterborne viruses. If these are of concern for you, I recommend further treating your filtered water with these Aquamira drops. Not to be confused with chlorine, the chlorine dioxide in these drops has the added benefit of being an additional, effective layer of defense against Giardia protozoa (which, admittedly, any decent filter does a fine job removing). Small enough to fit right in with my filter, I carry these on backpacking trips after an unfortunate and uncomfortable bout with an unknown waterborne pathogen in Army SERE school.
