They could probably borrow snakes eyes suit and throw a cape and cowl on it.
This idea bugs me. Why should the suit LOOK armored? It makes more sense to me that it doesn't. If his enemies know the suit is armored they're more likely to target his one vulnerable spot, his face (whether or not they actually hit it is another story). It also adds to his rep, if people get the idea that shooting him doesn't hurt him. Makes him seem to be more than human, which is supposed to be the point of the costume in the first place.
