I too have experienced chipping on the painted Jeti bodies. In my case I have a DS-14 Diablo (Yellow Paint), a DS-16 Carbon (Red Paint), and a DS-16 Carbon (Black Anodized).

Both painted bodies (Yellow and Red) have minor spots where the paint has chipped away. On the black anodized body there is virtually no blemishes in the exterior color.

In general an anodized coating on aluminum is much more robust than a painted finish. I do however wish the paint finish on these units was a little more robust as the painted finish seems to get battle scars easier than I would expect.

Powder coating is generally thick stuff. I think you would have difficulty in the side slider and face plate regions with too much powder buildup.

I still prefer the painted colors over most of the anodized colors as well.
