Mike, you list some wide open questions and all are subject to personal interpretation. I have had good luck with Honjo fenders (aluminum) and Bluemels (plastic) and mudflaps are a personal choice. The Bluemels come with an installed mudflap. To some, it may also be a matter of appearance rather than utility. Honjo fenders are fitted to the individual bike and require some drilling and fitting. The Bluemels can also be fitted to the individual bike, but require less skill. There are also heavier duty fenders on the market if you search around, but here again it depends on what you want, not particularly what's better than another. You should consider tire width, and whether you have enough clearance to mount fenders, Some bikes may not accept fender mounting.
