I've used Planet Bike Cascadia and SKS fenders on my bikes. Build quality and coverage are about the same, but I found the PB fenders to be much easier to install than SKS. The PB fenders come with struts that are sized to fit the wheels they'll be installed on. My SKS fenders came with overly long struts that needed to be trimmed with a Dremel or other cutting tool. Assembly of the SKS struts was also a bit fiddly. The PB fenders arrived partially assembled. SKS fenders arrived completely disassembled, including a bag of numerous tiny bolts, washers, mounting studs, etc.

Unless you can save a ton of money by buying SKS, I can't see that they're worth the hassle (granted: it's probably a one-time hassle)...

Edit: Turns out I lied: I've actually got the PB Hybrid/Touring fenders, not the Cascadia...
