I have been using Sun Warrior's Warrior Protein Blend as my protein powder for the past few years. I found that Whey protein bothers my stomach and makes me feel crappy (if you feel you may be having some issues with your Whey protein click here for my blog post on the subject to learn more), so I began using a Vegan protein source.
