For hats, I just yesterday got a Mountain Hardware hat that is more of a lightweight fleece headband with the rest of the hat constructed out of uninsulated windstopper fabric. I ran in it today at about 36F and it was perfect for keeping my ears warm without having buckets of sweat pouring off my head. I got it at Sierra Trading Post, not sure if they sell them online.
For socks, I like Icebreakers as well as, if not better than Smartwool, but you can't go wrong either way. They will last, which makes them worth the money.
Voluntary Discomfort is the secret cornerstone of strength. We build our whole lives around increasing comfort and avoiding discomfort, and yet by doing so we are drinking a can of Weakness Tonic with every morning’s breakfast. ~Mr. Money Mustache 5K PR: 23:40 10K PR: 48:57 HM PR: 1:59:37 30K: 2:57:44
