I carried the Ley overview maps but never used them. A combination of Ley and Delorme maps worked best for me. -Ron

On the PCT I loved hiking in pants and rarely wore the shorts I carried, usually to do laundry and swim.  This time around I'm carrying a z-packs rain kilt and if used in junction with a carefully placed bandanna this is "appropriate" attire for doing laundry, however it would not fly for a soak in a hot spring or a swim around a lake.
