Protection for Stomas?

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this as I'm new.
I have a Stoma and use a 2piece system. Does anyone know if its possibe to buy a hard case that goes over the colostomy bag?.. My reason for needing this is so I can go paint balling etc.

You can buy these different belts which serve as a stoma protector/noise muffler and also help with hernia prevention. There is a few on the market but they all do the same sorta thing. I ordered the Stomaplex one and im just waiting for it. Ive heard good reviews about all of them, here's the links:

I do want to add another newer product to this list. This one is unique in the fact that it doesn't require a bulky belt like the other products mentioned.

I'd love to hear feedback from anyone who's tried it (they aren't available yet).
