My wife made the sleeves. It's craft felt, folded over, and hand-stitched around the edges. The size is just large enough to fit over the mic. Which means they're fairly small. Which also means I keep losing them.

I'm using them with the Audio Technica 899 CW mics, but I was using them with Countryman B3s, too.

They do help with the wind somewhat. But for really brisk winds the Micro-Cats work very well. However, they really can't be hidden well at all.

BTW B&H has a nice short tutorial on how to mount a lav with a half-loop in the cable to avoid the pulling problem....

I've spent some time on the B & H Site, but can't find that tutorial. Others, but not that. Any chance someone has the URL or path info to get to it?
