I will endorse Fenix.
Ultra reliable, no silly gimmicks, and their IP rating means what it says.
Looking forward to NAMHO 2019. www.cambrianmines.co.uk

Another precaution, which I'd say is mandatory, is protecting the wire on those with a rear mounted battery case, with some rubber/surgical tubing. See pic below

I also think the Fenix is very good flood light but if you also want spot a option you might want to have a look at http://ylplight.com/en/katalog/1/nalobnye-fonari/panda-3r/

When I first started I bought a Pixa But soon replaced it with Fenix hl55. I was caving yesterday with a lady who uses a Scurion and she was really impressed how much my lamp lit up the pitch I was on.

Like the tubing, but more especially the background to the helmet :)

I had to consider the copyright act with that one, so please excuse the cowboy pixelating.
