Sks Beavertail Fenders?

Anyone with experience running these? Looks like a simple setup. Good for a touring rig? Thanks for any input. Otherwise, what is the best fender set for 700x35ish?

I have no direct experience with the half fender types. I put one on my wife’s bike but she doesn't ride in the rain. The comments I've heard on this forum is that half fenders are not much better than no fenders.
I just ordered a set of Planet bike Cascadia 700 c Touring (full fenders). These will fit up to 35 mm wide tire.

I debated hard and long between this model and the SKS P45


The SKS seems to be more highly regarded with it's stainless steel hardware and front fender emergency release. But I liked the better coverage the planet bike cascadia offered at a lower price with out having to add my own mud flaps. plus they look cool.
