Soft Shell Search

Hi all,

I am looking for a decent deal on a soft shell/hybrid with pit zips, detachable hood, reverse(2 way) front zip, and pretty good(great with add'l DWR) water resistance, and last and least important(can add 3M Scotchlite) some reflective details. I am getting frustrated, after looking at couple hundred jackets and need some help. Looking for athletic fit with coverage for cycling. Was looking at Marmot Sharp Pointe(all, -hood), MH Dragon(hood not detachable), Ibex Clive(?), and others at STP. If anyone can help, or give a few suggestions with the requisites above. There are SO MANY softshell jackets out there, and every one seems short at least one feature. Thanks.

I just picked up the descente axiom. . . great little jacket so far. removable arms and hood, back venting, reflective details, and great dwr. i ran it under a water-fountain for about a minute before buying with almost nothing getting through the the fabric not becoming saturated.
