Recommend a lavalier deadcat please (also looking for a site)

I had a site on my previous computer that I lost the bookmark to, it was site with custom hand made windjammers for lav mics. It had various colors as well. I'd LOVE to have that site again if anybody knows what I'm talking about.

Do you guys have any suggestions (besides the normal B&H, etc) for a good and reasonably priced lav deadcat/furry cover?

Thanks

Maybe it's this site, selling the Micro-Cat, and it comes in red, blue, white, beige/tan, gray and black:
MicroCat Index

Here are some other sites that sell this type of item:
Microphone Windshield - Manufacturers Resellers - Film TV Video Television Broadcast Production Equipment Vendors - mandy.com

I have a couple of Micro-Cats.

But my wife also made some simple sleeves from fleece material that works nicely most of the time. It's cut and sewn to fit the lav mic closely, and then clipped under the shirt.

It handles most conditions unless the wind is blasting in excess of 20 knots.

That was the site, thanks Jack! Haly-tek.com

Also, thanks for your insight Dean. Was good meeting you at the ocean expo a few months ago :).

Hi Randy... Were you at the Aquahunters booth?

If you want to check out the MicroCats let me know. I don't use them much since I usually try to hide the mics under clothing.
