Hello la list!

I am in search for a directional microphone for
outdoor field recording. IT needs to be pretty robust
and capable of functioning in sub zero temperatures,
think Montreal in February at 4am on the traintracks..

The only constraint is that it has to be under 999$

thanks for any suggestions
