I like my zebra lights.

Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I really like this one, even bought two more to have in reserve. Crazy bright and batteries last quite a while. Comes with car and wall chargers.

Depends on tradeoff of brightness vs. weight.   I like LED Lenser.   I have their 300 lumens variable power headlamp I use for the woods, and the larger 1000 lumens headlamp I keep around the house for general use.  It's heavier at 12 ounces instead of 5, but very bright and has 300 meter range. 

Other manufacturers make 2000, 3000, and higher Lumens power.  But those get into the 1-2lb weight range for headlamp, which was heavier than I wanted.  So it depends on your power vs. weight requirements.
