REI dividend season is here...

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

So, what are you going to buy with your dividend?

For me, last year was the Marmot Precip jacket. Not sure yet what to use mine for this year..

After yesterday's six miles in solid downpour, possibly take twenty bucks plus the 20% discount and get some goretex socks for "special" occasions.

I was just shopping there site to spend my $42. I was seriously thinking about a new pad but after comparing R-values(4.1) and weight(24oz) I still think that my BA insulated air core is a stand out. The Exped Synmat UL 7 looked to be the only one worth considering at R-3.1 and 16oz but it's only 72" and I'm over 6' and really like the 78" of the BA pad. I may just go ahead and score some points buying the better half something new.

Mine was $5 and change. I don't buy much at full retail, and I only shopped at REI because I received a couple of gift cards. So $5, plus the 20% off, plus a $50 gift card, plus $40 remaining on my old gift card is enough to get me on my way toward a Patagonia down sweater. I've been coveting one as an all-purpose baselayer for chilly mornings and cool evenings all year.

Matt, I have a Patagonia Down sweater and it's great. before you buy one from REI you might want to check this out on the Patagonia site.

About $100 this year. The wife already earmarked it for use towards the purchase of some jogging stroller she's had her eye on. Boo-urns...
