3M also makes Scotchlight sew-on fabric. Here's a one-yard strip available on eBay for an example. I think there might be some heat-transfer reflective stuff that would adhere to fabric if you didn't want to mess with the sewing.

I don't have any personal experience with it, but there's this stuff. A 1"x16' piece for around $12-15 seems pretty reasonable to me:

You can also buy the 3M Scotchlite reflective fabric in strips. It would be the best and most durable but you would have to get it sewn on.

That's a great idea - I was thinking it might be tricky to sew them on.
I do see a little disclaimer on there on how it might not stick to waterproof fabric though... I'll have to do a little research. I suppose I could try, worst case would need to sew them on if they started to peel.
