Go to a craft store and buy some thin foam and wrap it around the camera.

you are using  the slide left and choosing wind only correct.  If I  have too much wind I cup the three mics one hand is quite hard.

WHat i have done on my   frame mouint would be to yes a dead cat  or ear muff, cut out place on two of the three mics, problem is mics are to close to the port and shutter area.  .  I  opted  for the pro mic  but as you have to experiement what works best I rather not suggest to buy something that may not work out, it is not my money but yours?  I will suggest using a tissue first, if that helps then you can   seek a paid product after.  I did not and wil lnot suggest the dead cat or ear muff on the Hero 5, but on the Hero 4 frame the naked frame.

@fishycomics

Considering you can buy foam for less than $5, I think it's a perfectly fine suggestion.
