High quality sandpaper

Getting tired of these 'top quality heavy-durable' sandpaper that either loses its grit in a minute, or the paper is so thin, that it tears just as quick.

Can any of you guys tell me you #1 choice of sandpaper? Hand sanding and electric sanding are the applications; using the various grits of paper.

Edit - I should mention too, I am in Canada, so brands sold here I am looking to buy. Stuff on Amazon.ca I would buy too.

Thanks guys,

I've never paid a lot of attention to the brand but always preferred red garnet paper. Aluminum oxide is ok for a cheaper price.

I have always used Norton sandpaper even back in the days when I owned a body shop and never had a problem.

Now that I think of it, Norton is the brand usually offered at the various paint stores.

I only use Mirka Brand that I buy on Amazon.
To me it does not load up as much as other papers then doing jobs like stripping poly.
