Opinions Wanted; MTB Rear Fenders

What opinions have you for a removable (easily?), MTB rear fender?

I went out for a ride in the snow/slush/wet this morning. The ground is still warm so it was more slush and wet than snow. My backside was soaked within the 1st mile, at 30 it wasn't very comfortable.

I have looked at the SKS X-Blade X-tra Design, Portland Design Works, and Zefal. I am open to all suggestions.

I am looking to cover a 26 x 2.3 tire.

TIA!

looked in any Shops yet?, my LBS Has some , the snap ons are not full coverage, just keeps the mud from spraying on your backside.

Myself I use full fenders, I Leave on. since they're 26" wheel bikes I use year around..



If you plan ahead, with your installation , you can use a simple tool or 2 to take them off.

I haven't been in a shop yet to look. One of my searches resulted in a LBS with one of the fenders I was researching and if I go with that one, I will buy from them.

Reviews of some fenders have brought up durability issues, something I am hoping people here can attest to.
