Best 'wearable' second system recorder


I need to record second system sound for video. Presently I am using a roland R-05, but it's really a bit too bulky for a pocket. My videos are about how to do various stretching and strengthening exercises, and having a recorder that's even a bit bulky can be uncomfortable rolling around on the floor!
I also use a Sony transmitter–receiver arrangement on some shoots, but as I am travelling literally all the time, would prefer a single recorder.
I need 48KHz, 16bit, to be able to copy the files in to Final Cut Studio directly, and I do not need anything more than to be able to record (just recording one mono track is all I need). I do need to input a mic via mini RCA (so do not need XLR input). Battery life is important, but small size and weight is the most important.
Any suggestions?
