When using a Boom/Shotgun mic on a boom outdoors, do you guys use the foam windscreen and fur windscreen/DeadCat together, or do you remove the base foam windscreen that comes with most mics?

If the deadcat fits over the foam then it's meant to.

You may need a blimp system for better protection, or a softie for a more basic one.

A good (Rycote) softie is the best solution (money/performance).

I will definitely get a blimp down the line, but I have a few more production items that I have to invest in first. 

I will look into the Rycote. I love their undercovers. 
Thanks

If you prefer "just" a softie solution, the most modern is

A little bit more expensive than the rest, but with lower profile and excellent performance.

Which microphone(s) do you use?

Mostly I'm using a zeppelin (and no, the foam is not kept on the mic itself once inside the zeppelin). 

But sometimes I'll use something like a Rode WS6 if there is almost no wind outdoors.

The Marantz one seems to be a copy of the version one of the old Rode Blimp, and it costs less than a hundred fifty bucks!

There is no good reason to not get one:

(exception... unless you already own something better! I'll accept that excuse. Is kinda my reason why I didn't buy a Marantz Blimp. As I already own a Rode and Rycote one, and my next one will probably be something like a Cinela or Cyclone instead than a Marantz!)
