The Rycote Windshield Kit #5 is a complete modular microphone windshield system including the Rycote modular suspension mount, windjammer, windshield and necessary extensions. The windshield provides optimum protection against wind and the kit is a useful solution for those who do not already own a suspension mount or windjammer.

Each custom configured system will include the correct combination of suspension mount, windjammer, windshield and extensions (whenever necessary) to accommodate the size requirements for use with your specific microphone.

Complete Kit Solution
The Windscreen Kit includes all that is needed for complete set up and use. Each kit includes the necessary modular suspension mount, windshield, windjammer and extensions.
Hytrel Plastic Construction
A material called Hytrel is used on the end rings and shield. The material aids in creating the "dead" space necessary for quiet operation.
Interlocking Ends
Modular locking end rings provide quick and easy replacement of dented ends and modular extensions.

    Windshield Kit 5 - Complete Windshield and Suspension System is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible wind protection I needed wind protection for my sennheiser ME-80 for a location shoot on a boat on a coastal waterway. ... I don't think anything less would have provided the wind protection needed and the audio came out prestine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice kit, little room for improvement I just bought the WS kit 5 to house both my long shotgun, and my short gun without the extension installed. Parts: all the parts are quality. what I woule expect for this money. It looks like it will take a beating and last.spares: would have been nice to include a small packet of spares of small or breakable parts, such as the clips that hold the cable in place on the side of the suspension, the screws for the lyre mounts. for the cost of the kit vs the cost of the parts to make my life easier when things are lost or break, I think they should be thrown in.value for money: it's a nice kit, but expensive for what it is. What more to say. If I want to house 3 mics I've got to spend over $2000us with taxes. The lyre mounts don't move easily in the fields, so it's kind of a one trick pony when changing to a different sized mic. I'm trying a work around where my long gun (15) and my short gun (cs-1 at 9) share the zeppelin, but to make it work I had to slide the housiing onto the suspension backwards, and the windjammer is only meant to fit one way, or so it seems. Even afer moving the shockmount to a couple different locations on the pistol grip. The windjammer also isn't reversible becuse of the big hole left around the drawstring. This would leave a gap under the interference tube of most shotguns and probably leaks bit. It's not sucn an issue when used the right way round and the gap falls towards the back of the zeppelin. moving on.the addition of a boom mount to swap out for the pistol grip was nice. suggested improvements: include a windjammer size 4 and size 5, since the size 5 doesn't fit very well on the zepp with the extension off.include a couple spare parts.a big one would be to make the lyre mounts quick release with a winged thumb screw of some sort, so I could easily slide the mounts for a quick reset for another mic without tools. this would be huge.overall, it's well built with nice features, but could use s slight bit of streamlining for field use.oh, last thing. the lyre mounts are fantasitc. they grip well and are way quieter then my k-tek or old style 4 band suspended rycote mounts. well done rycote.thankssandor
