Recommended Fenders for Specialized Sirrus or Similar Commuter Bikes

Which make/model, and which material (aluminum, plastic, etc.) would you recommend for fenders for a daily commuting and weekend leisure bike like the Specialized Sirrus?

Planet Bike Hardcore Hybrid. I like them a lot, and never have had a problem with them.

I have been using SKS raceblades and was happy with the quality but not the coverage for daily commuting. I recently bought a bike that can fit full fenders so ordered the SKS longboards based on several recommendations. Should have them next week.

Berthoud stainless steel fenders. They last forever, don't rattle, don't rub, and you can bolt a taillight onto them.

I just mounted some Portland Design Works Full Metal Fender - City fenders on a Jamis Coda Elite. First commute was mildly soggy, but the fenders did a great job. They look great and didn't have any problems fitting with the disc brakes. I had to use a 1/2 inch nylon spacer and M5x0.8x25mm allen head bolt with some neoprene washers on the bottom mount point of the rear fender to push it off the front derailleur mechanism. Other than that, easy install.
