Here's what I do for the wind. I have a little medicine bottle stuffed with cotton swabs. To check the wind, I pinch off strands and let them go in the air. When there's no wind to really feel on your face or see by watching the greenery sway, that little puff of cotton swabs will drift away to let you know where your scent is drifting towards. Works great, and is cheap.

Best thing is that you can also take a pinch of the cotton swab and wrap one end of the strands on a little limb or other stationary object. That way you can more permanently watch which way the wind blows.

First year I started doing that, and kept to hunting the wind, I saw more deer than I ever had before.

Try it-- cheap, and very effective.

if I am high enough in a tree I don't worry about it much, but when I am ground hunting I usually tie a small ribbon a few yards away from me on a small limb.

I use the fluorescent fly tying material for making eggs.
Really fuzzy stuff. Got a bag full for $3

Get a film canister and cut an X in the lid. Stick about 1/2" of the string through the cut and pack the rest(8-12") in the canister. Mine has lasted 5 years and still not close to running out.

Try the orange/red/pink for max visibility. I got the green and it gets lost against a green background during bow.
