Best manual pump

I have a Medela PIS that is 5 years old, works great that I have used for my older 2 girls when I went back to work and mostly EP'd for a few months before I stopped BFing them.  I am now a SAHM and DS is EBF and I don't pump as often as I had with my girls and find it to be a slight pain to bust out the pump and wash parts for the few times that I do pump just to relieve any engorgement and to have a small freezer stash in case I need to be away from DS for any longer than 2 hours.

I was thinking it would be nice to have a small manual pump for the times that DS may only nurse from 1 side or times that I don't want to mess with getting out the double electric one I have.  Are there any recommendations?  I haven't done any research at all yet on them.

    I have a medela harmony that I like...it fits the same parts bottles as other medela pumps and has the twophase expression. If you decide to go with this one, be sure to check Amazon. I got mine for 27 with frer shipping vs. 44 at my local Target.

    I have a Lanisoh and it works fine, but I have nothing to compare it to.  it was like $25 on amazon I think.

    I have Medela Harmony also and I like it - though I have nothing else to compare it with.  I like the 2-phase pumping, and it's small and not too many parts to wash at all.

    Another vote for the Medela Harmony.  I also have an electric for when I am at work, but use the Harmony at home in those rare occasions where one side didn't get drained or he sleeps too long and I need relief.  Works great, easy to clean.  with coupons & sales, got if for about $25 at BRU.

    Medela Harmony. I like it better than my PISA for occasional pumping. Plus, the pieces are interchangeable, it's small for travel, and it is quick and easy.
