Well before you spend some money, have you tried a really thick winter sock? I've done it in the past for my DVC30 with the XLR mic. Worked nicely and didn't cost me a thing.

Wool sock? Did it have any noticeable effect on the frequency response? (Some material may be more transparent to sounds at different frequencies than other material. The ideal wind noise suppression system would have a flat frequency response.
