I have the Sony ($50) branded wind cover for the M10 and it works for quick=
 casual recording in light breezes, but fails in anything stronger.

1st - Does anyone know where to purchase the really long fur like that used=
 in the really furry Dead Kittens?  I havehsopped the fabric stores (JoAnn =
etc) and have only found medium length or really thin spaced longer fur.

2nd - I am constructing my own windsscreen and have some medium length fur =
that still fails in the gusty wind we get here in TX, I read below about us=
ing foam inside the fur and leaving an air gap between the fur/foam and the=
 mic, how much air gap is optimal?

3rd - is open-cell speaker foam acceptible to use for the foam behind the f=
ur?  I have seen 3/4 and 1 inch speaker foam and was wondering if that woul=
d be workable.
