Default Chest Body Armor Question

Newbie to the forums here. I have a question about motorcycle body armor. I've spent a lot of time researching this but I can't find the answer.

I'm looking for motorcycle body armor for a Halloween costume. It's for an Star Wars Imperial TIE Pilot uniform.

Here is what the body armor looks like:

Note how the armor is only a simple black chest piece. Does anyone know where I can purchase some motorcycle body armor that looks similar to this?

Thank you very much for your help.

You can get chest protectors at any dirt bike accessory shop. If you can't find a black one just get a can of spray paint.

Seems to me he could make one out of a bunch of gallon milk jugs...

The spout would make a *****in' codpiece, don'tcha think?

That's the funniest thing I've seen all day. Thanks for the laugh.

Hilarious! Obviously, I meant the black uniform, not the storm trooper uniform.

Thanks for the feedback so far and the links. Any other tips?
