Model a bomb suit?

I want to make a bomb squad character but I have no idea where to start. I would like to find good reference images so I can point model but I can’t seem to find any. Would it also be better to model each part of the suit separably?

There is loads of photos you can use as reference. As there are variations over time and in different forces, there is not a single standard to copy.
