I will endorse Fenix.

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.
