I did some live recording of music in India using a pro Walkman (make sure you get one with XLR inputs) and an SM57, which worked out fine. The Pro Walkman was about $220 (as of 1992) and the SM-57 was about $90. The good thing is 57s are almost indestructible. You will need to rig up a wind screen of some sort, but that can be down with a little foam rubber. You probably don't need stereo, but if you do, Electrovoice made (as of 1992) a good stereo mike. Another option is to get a small minidisc recorder. I can't vouch for how rugged they are, but the quality is great.
