Please Suggest Some Fenders for my Novara Safari 700Cx42mm Wheels

I've asked before about the minimum fender size you would recommend for 42mm tires and it seems like 10mm of clearance was the consensus.

I looked at Planet Bike's offering for fenders and could only find one that would fit - that was their 29er Fenders at 29"x60mm. Those are pretty big!

Is there another manufacturer you could recommend? I think optimally I could get by with 50mm fenders - I won't ever put larger tires on the Safari but may go down to 35mm eventually.

It seems like most ATB/MB tire fenders are for 26" which doesn't do me much good. I'm sure there's a more touring specific brand out there.

Nothing too hardcore. Riding to the sea and about 30-40 miles roundtrip and tired of the morning mist / runoff water ruining my clothes!

Thank you.
