Here are a couple of links where you can buy it but give me a call on my Afghan mobile(011.93.795.442.118) or email me and I might be able to help out in other ways.

Hi Marc, 

Did you manage to find a jacket yet?, a family member of mine is in the biz that makes all things armor in Canada. Drop me a line if you've yet to find anything.

Cheers, Matt

Don't buy used plates. If they are damaged or cracked (and sometimes you can't tell), they are not much use to you.
