Good wireless kit for lav

So what's a good wireless kit (one transmitter, one receiver) for a lavalier mic? I've already got the lavs so I only need a wireless. And only one because I myself will be sitting with the recorder in my lap anyway so I might as well plug in with a cable. Any recommendation? I'm thinking good stuff but not too pricey. Don't really know what this type of stuff costs but I'll probably settle for something in the price range of Sony etc, DPA-land is not my land.

Good Wireless = expensive. Diversity.
Lectrosonics, Audio Developments, Zaxcom come to my mind, probably there are other brands I'm not aware of.

Cheap Wireless = unreliable (non-diversity), more or less noisy.
Sennheiser EW (not even that cheap, but still noisy and susceptible to RF drop-outs), Samson, ...

In very controlled conditions, the cheapos are fine. But I'm not sure I'd ever take a Senn EW kit out into a winter shoot in the forest.
