I'm using an Axiom 602c right now on my main commuter that seems pretty comfy. I also have a Serfas "Dual Density" women's saddle (not the one with the cut-out) on my other commuting bike that is pretty comfortable up to about an hour, then the softer padding starts to bottom out, no pun intended. The Axiom is a little firmer, so it feels a bit hard for 2 or 3 minutes, then more or less disappears.
The Axiom saddles aren't sold as mens or womens models, but by riding position. The packaging is a little confusing; you're supposed to peer at little stick figures on bikes, decide which one matches your usual side profile, then buy the saddle that goes with it. (Wide for upright, less wide for touring, narrower for road/racing bikes, very narrow for time trial/triathlon.) I never thought I'd ever like a narrow saddle, but I have their race saddle on my road bike and find it quite good.
