Smartwool makes an excellent low rise running sock, so does darn tough. If your feet sweat to much consider synthetic alternatives to wool. In NM consider the Sawyer mini. My head gets to hot in a hat so I use a bomb proof visor by Kuhl. I stuff a bandana in it to cover my neck and ears. Works great with a beanie when cold.

I was out hiking in the Superstition Mts the last 5 days.  I think I need
lighter hiking socks than the Smart Wool I have been wearing for years from
my days in Michigan.

 

Any thoughts, suggestions on socks?

 

Can you really get by without a filter in New Mexico?  I can't stand to see
things floating or swimming in water I am about to drink.  

Best ceramic filter?  I get sick on too much Aqua Mira.  Or iodine.  

 

Does using a hosier to sip water cause you to use more water than you
actually need to use while walking?  Is it better to place water in bottles
in the pack and when thirsty stop and open the pack and drink?

I lost my Tilley last summer, but the Tilley is actually a bit heavy and
warmer than it needed to be.

I picked up a Sun Day Afternoons safari hat but not enough side and ear
protection. 

 

So I am now in the hunt for a new hat for New Mexico.

I used a bandana  over my head and tied in a loose knot under my chin. It
would drape over my neck and loosely cover my ears. I would then use a
light weight painters cap over that to hold it in place. Dual purpose. Good
ventilation too.

Oh yea, On the painters hat I removed the cardboard for the brim and sewed
in a piece of a milk jug that was the same shape. lol

I used thin socks to start, then more medium later. I also found on my last
pair of shoes (vasque velocity 7624), which were also the heaviest, lasted
the longest from Sula to Waterton and had tons of life left. I am still
winter running in them. They were big enough to put a pair of scholls green
full length insoles under the vasque insole. Very cushy and easy on the
feet. I would get pretty sore feet after 20 miles before I found that combo.
I never used a filter. Just flitered through a bandana if it was grungy and
pristine drops(like aquamira). I only had to use grungy water a couple of
times.
I just kept a platy or gatorade bottle in a side pocket and would drink as
I walked. Lets you learn your water requirements.
Don't know how much that helped, but worked well for me.
