Clearcoat Hardness

Is the paint from the factory considered hard or soft clearcoat?

Rain drops give me chips. I just had my hood painted/cleared. and the guy said he used a $600.00 gal clear. I forgot the name. I dont even know if $600.00 per Gal is high or low !!!! He claims its a hard product. When it is full cured, I am getting clear protect wrap. Whats cool is, he took so long to do my hood, that hes doing the bumper for free. I just left the hood with him, and I will do the same with bumper. I paid $ 400.00 for the repaint. Looks pretty legit. The split color comparison is EXTREMELY magnified. Top is hood, bottom is original. It looks heavy flaked only because it magnified like 4x.
