    Rode must include some instructions, anyway I will do their job. DeadCat must be used over the foam. Thin material part (the one without hair) must face down. Velcro don´t cover buttons. Deadcat must cover exactly the foam. Don´t try to cover buttons or any plastic part.

    I'm with everyone else that was confused about what to do with the Deadcat when I pulled it out of the package. I just switched to the Rode VideoMic Pro from a Sennheiser MKE 400 w/ a Windmuff and was disappointed by Rode's lack of effort given to the customer's experience. I tried it with the foam and without and then googled how to install the Deadcat. The fit is terrible, but it does help with wind. If they don't want to include instuctions, maybe they should build a dead cat that has the foam insert built into to take away any confusion and allow the user to feel comfortable that it is doing its job.

      I tested DeadCat with the Rode mic. It reduces noise, but not totally. Besides wind still noising on the recording it doesn't cover fully the mic. It leaves uncovered 1 cm. aprox.
      Think Rode can improve this product very easily.

        This item came for free when I purchased my Rode on camera video mic. I attached this to my mic while recording at a windy racetrack and was able to capture crisp sound. This is a MUST BUY if you're buying a Rode VideoMic Pro.

            Bought the Rode VideoMic Pro shotgun to record our child's band performances, which includes outdoor performances - very few of which have been in calm weather. I find this wind cover does a great job of diminishing wind noise when recording in breezy conditions.

            Made for this microphone, it fits quite snugly and seems to be sonically transparent.

                This came with no instructions. It took me a minute to figure out how to wrap it around the foam windscreen. That said, it muffles the wind noise much better than just the foam windscreen alone. It's pricey but worth it IMO.

                  Comments about Rode DeadCat VMP Wind Muff for VideoMic Pro:

                  I had my doubts that this little fuzzy thing would actually cut down the wind noise but it has been doing a great job. There is still some wind noise on large gusts or really windy conditions but even that audio was mostly useable and the sounds I wanted to capture were clearly discernable from the wind noise.

                      On numerous windy occasions I have been in, its as if there is no wind screen on my VideoMic Pro at all. Im not sure what everyone is talking about, saying its cutting out "all" the wind noise. Mine surely doesn't, and its ruined many shots because all i hear is wind noise. I even installed it correctly, having issues like everyone else because of Rode's lack of instruction. This is a total waste of money and is not worth putting on.

                              Works well at blocking out the wind for recording with the VideoMic Pro but leaves a great deal of "fur" along the way. Obviously can only do so much and in high wind situations performance will suffer. Fits snug but somewhat of a pain to get on.

                                For the price, this is going to fit well into any small budget filmmaker or event recorders tool set. It saves a lot of time in post-production audio processing and continues to surprise me with how clean the results are. It fits very snugly on the VideoMic Pro (which it is designed for). I picked this one up for [$] in a bundle and the first project you shoot outdoors will recoup that investment.

                                      Purchased with the VideoMic Pro and immeadiately tested it on a windy day... Definitely cuts wind noise. As much as I would have expected! Only gave it four stars because it's a little awkward to put on the mic.

                                        In a situation when filming documentaries, we always keep it on outside. Sound is completely wind-free.

                                            really makes a big difference
                                            soft and fuzzy
                                            hard to get on

                                                I bought this in combination with the Rode Video Mic Pro. I was very disappointed after hearing the wind noise it was supposed to minimize coming through my speakers. should have researched a bit more and left this on the shelf.
