fenders for 700x42 tires

I just bought a Kona Dew Plus with 700x42 tires. What kind of mudguards would fit to these tires ?

Planet Bike's 60mm 29er Cascadia fenders are what I use, I think the 45mm hybrid are too narrow for your application:

rule of thumb is you want at least 5mm of clearance between the fender and tire. It's worth checking the actual width of the tire, not just the claimed width, but chanced are you're going to need the 29er fender.

As soon as I read the thread title, my first thought was 'he'll need 29er fenders from planet bike.'

SKS P-50 if you want to go plain.

V-O 52mm Zeppelins if you want to get some classy looking aluminum ones.
