    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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Breathability, waterproof, pick none? I slept in the bivy in my yard last night in the bay area. We had a pretty good rain, there were a few moderatly heavy hours and lighter rain all night. It's important to know that you must not seal yourself up in a "waterproof" bivy (you can suffocate). I left a six inch opening but tried to stay battoned down as much as I could. A lot of vapor was evident as the bivy became clammy and my glasses steamed up a bit, more disturbingly, I felt short of breath. In the morning my sleeping bag was much wetter than I think would be practical on a multi day trip with daily rain. When there was a break in rain I did like the way the outer hood drapes down when buttoned in above, creating a loose seal around the neck, keeping some heat in while you breathe vapor out of the bugnet. That seemed like some thought went into the issue of condensation with bivys. The conditions were a bit of a test but I'd say the bivy failed. If I have to suppliment this bivy with a tarp thrre are other lighter, cheaper, more breathable ones out there. I'll let you know if I change my mind, I'd like to, it seems nicely made.
