    I came over this norwegian thread suggesting this. Would that prove more scratch proof, or am I completely off here?

    a powder coat finish would have been stronger but the coat is much thicker than an anodized finish. its about the thickness of a single layer of paint if im not mistaken.

    Powder coating adds thickness. Powder coating is more durable than paint, but it's not more durable than ANODIZING.
