I like to be able to move about the bush or the town without too much baggage, 
so my all time favourite is the cheap, and inconspicious Vivanco lapel mic 
which I can only source online now. My old one,at 12 years old has just 
died,well only one channel working.It has has been out in all weathers (not wet 
of course).I have put it down holes,into compost heaps,under floorboards, 
rocks, seaweed.It also comes with a generous ammount of lead. Useless in wind 
though I've wrapped some fabric around it. A Rycote would have cost more than 
the microphone.
I'm told that for better  quality the DPA models would be better. No doubt,but 
too nice for compost heaps maybe.
