I use a 10cm Classic Softie with the Sony ECM-XM1 microphone. But I need more wind protection.

The Classic-Softie you are using is the correct model for the ECM-XM1. In extreme wind conditions, we can actually make a Windjammer to fit over the top of the Classic-Softie fur, and the details are below:

Description: 10cm Softie Windjammer
Order code: 021702

This will impact on the acoustic transparency, so a little more HF loss. But for extreme wind, it'll certainly help.

You may also find that the exposed rear of the microphone and XLR connection is a weak point at which wind noise is picked up. You could try covering it with a soft material. This we find improves things also.
