I have an AR that I would like to get coated into a camo of some type. Any suggestions?

Not Cerakote, but hydrodipping (camo). I'm sending Randy 2 ARs and a McRees Precision chassis to dip because of his quick turn around and price. Check him out http://www.rahoffer.com/

That looks pretty awesome! you say the turn around time is good? How about the durability, is it pretty durable? It sure looks like what I want.

I did my Cerakote myself. You can see the video and write up here.

It is the air cure version. If you do it yourself get the oven cure if you can because it is tougher. I am happy with what I've got though.

I also had a piece for my shotgun done by STS Arms in Toledo, Oregon. They do good work.

What IS the best coating in terms of durability?

Have had Duracoat and Cerakote, my AR is getting Cerakote in the next few months. I beat the crap out of my Cerakoted bolt action varmint rifle, no bare metal yet and it usually just wipes clean with a wet cloth. Air cure Duracoat is great for a do-it-yourselfer, but I think the H series Cerakote is tougher. Of course that is apples to oranges.

Been sending all of my guns (ARs/Bolt/Semi-Pistols/Shotguns) to Black Ice Coatings for years. Can't recommend them highly enough. Both Teflon and Dip. Can't go wrong with Lee, give him a call...

Had my WOA duracoat the barrel black on my 6.8SPCII upper before assembly and it has held up well.
