Try checking out MAXXIS Highrollers. I am on my 3rd pair... very satisfied.
I am from the tropics.. go through mud and wet sections all the time.. I've used it on loose gravel roads, shallow river and stream crossings, mud, roots.. so far so good.. I have been using Highrolllers since March 2013.
I have used the 2.1, 2.35 and 2.4 (highroller 2).
So far, the 2.1 is very good for XC use.. 2.4 highroller 2 is very good in loose and mud, but very heavy.
The 2.35 highrollers are probably the best one.. I have yet to try the 2.3 Highroller2 (which is currently out of stock).
Anyway, the casings are low volume.. the 2.1s look like 2.0s, the 2.35s look like 2.2s. and the 2.4 (although wider overall) look like 2.3s..
Below is the Highroller 2 2.4 on mud..
Another tire I am fond is Specialized Purgatory and Ground Control.. good for trails..
