    I own a Tilley (LT6), but would never wear it hiking for one reason. Wind. While I can tie-down the hat to my head, the brim is too soft and will flip up with any sort of "real" wind. Thereby...

    Elkins isn't touristy. It is a small mountain town that just slows you down on the way to your real destination (Skiing [north or south of town], Dolly Sods, etc.). You'll curse every traffic light...

    Your ability to tolerate NE "winters" and an occasional cold snap and/or storm in the south are the limiting factors. I assume the former are far more "difficult" than the later.

    I don't care so much about weight on day hikes. In fact, they tend to be "heavy" and "over stocked". Unless you plan on doing a 20-30 mile day hike, I wouldn't worry about it.

    I use to "hope it would go away", but recently, I've embraced the midnight run. Even in the cold. So, now I wake-up and "get it over with" at the first signs of having to go rather than hold off.
