The average person wouldn't wear those outfits. The military people wouldn't wear something like that when they go to war. Plus if only the colorful costumes from the comics looked realistic to be included in the movies, we would have gotten those costumes.
even military grade bullet proof gear, doesn't mean every inch of it is bullet proof, it usually only protects your vital organs...
