Voice Recording Equipment

A question for those of you whose research includes any sort of phonetic/phonological analysis or acoustic phonetics: What do you use for recording subjects when you're out in the field? I don't want to haul my laptop and microphone around everywhere, but the handheld voice recorders I've been recommended by friends all record as WMA (as does my mp3 player), which is a lossy format and therefore less-than-ideal for making recordings I'll be analyzing later. So I need something that's portable and gives me the option of recording to WAV or other lossless format. Any suggestions?
