The paint on mine has held up great besides a little scraping on the corners of the heel loops (where they've contacted the snow over time) and on the lower edges of the toe ratchets. That was after a whole season of using them, so the paint itself is pretty durable. It would last longer though with a clear coat, unless they already have one and I just haven't noticed.
--- Think im going to open up shop to snowboarders and start powder coating bindings any color they can come up with and or basecoat/clear coat the color of their choice.

I still find it hard to believe they use a basic enamel paint job on them. Makes sense though since its very cheap.
