I have fenders on my Specialized Sequoia. I bought for year-round commuting so I had the LBS put them on (along with a rack) right when I bought it.
I have no idea what brand they are, but they're the same basic style as these: http://www.planetbike.com/fenders.html
. However, if you don't have the rack/fender eyelets at the bottom of the fork, they may not be an option.
I prefer the full-size fenders to the rear seat-post thingies like the backscratcher, because the latter only protects you and not your drive train. Winter mud and grime can chew up a drive train pretty quickly.
On my old bike, I have clip-on fenders that attached at the top of the fork only, and were easy to remove. They had about the same coverage as my new fenders, but they weren't very stable -- occasionally they would drag on the tire and I'd have to stop and wiggle them around a bit to fix it.
