wot fenders fit?

Have a '06 specialized rockhopper, intend to set it up for touring, on/off pavement. I want long fenders with best coverage available. Any suggestions/recommendations?
Bike has stock v-brakes (which I like and will keep) and 26x2.00 knobbies which will be swapped for smaller and smoother tires (for pavement) which should allow clearance for fenders.

Planet Bike Cascadia / Freddy Fenders always get good reviews. I like them.

My LBS fitted some 700cx65 SKS fenders to my 26" bike and the coverage is really good.
