comment What makes a good head lamp?
I'd say that's a function of the lamp you had. I have a couple of non-regulated ones that do not have that problem. It sounds much more like an issue of "low quality" vs. "high quality" than "regulated" vs. "non-regulated".

comment What clothing would be appropriate for hiking in -18°C with up to 30 km/hr wind?
I'd only comment, that it does take more than 1 of the 3. Wet won't give you hypothermia in 110 degree heat no matter how wet you get.

comment What makes a good head lamp?
Generally I much prefer non-regulated mode. I can generally tell when my light is getting dim and I MUCH prefer that to sudden loss of light without warning. Also your graph is a little misleading. Regulated gives more even light at a cost of either a lower maximum lumens or shorter time span (usually both). The graph they created just fills in a flat line at max light out to max time and that's not really what regulated does.

comment How to tell the time at night
The way you've asked the question, there's really no way to answer. There is no easy way to tell time at night without a watch, as Shawn explains. I've edited it to remove "straight forward" and make it more answerable.
