Need 29 in hybrid/comfort bike tire

I'm looking for a 29x1.95-2.10 hybrid/comfort bike tire.
I am perfectly happy with my Kenda 841A 26x1.95 for performance/price/durability/weight/compromise on my other bike but there seems to be less hybrid/comfort choices for a 29 inch rim. My current 29x2.25 MTB tires are just too slow and painful for the long mostly pavement/dirt/gravel/grass trips I am doing now.

The Kenda 841A for reference

I am trying a Vee Rubber V10 29x2.10. $30 for the pair shipped, not expecting a miracle for that price and the reviews are all over the place.

I did some mixed riding today. The V10 is a decent tire, did some tarmac, thick matted down grass, through the deep woods over leaves and fallen branches, though muck, water and mud. The tires did spin in the mud and deep water where I felt my previous MTB would not have but not as bad as I thought they would. Felt sturdy and solid on the hard pack and occasional rock face even when wet. Nothing high speed off road. The tire itself is VERY thin and flimsy out of the box but if it holds up, this is exactly what I was looking for.
