Edit - 25/Mar/19: Since the start of Season 1's battlepass, Lifeline's ultimate no longer has a chance to drop Legendary armor and helmet. Thanks Tuschi for noting it in the comments.

Edit - 23/Feb/19: xxDAMRONxx uploaded a very detailed video guide. Perfect for having a visual reference of the known methods so far! He was also kind enough to suggest that i incorporate into this solution for convenience sake, so many thanks to him for the gesture. I've linked it below:

Armor and Helmet pickups can be found throughout the map and are divided into tiers, just like any other loot. The legendary tier, which is the best variant, is easily identifiable by their golden color. The other tiers you can find are: purple (high), blue (mid) and white (low).
WARNING: There's no definite location to find any item, so this achievement is completely luck dependent! You could get lucky and unlock it quite early, or it may take you well beyond lvl 50 before you find both items. So keep that in mind if you're not tolerant of luck based achievements! Though, As you can see, the ratio is not that bad and some knowledge on how loot works can greatly improve your odds, so here's the rundown on the best ways to search:

Play with Friends: This wasn't in the guide but i'm adding it at the top, because as many have lamented in the comments, their chance to get the achievement was robbed due to playing with randoms. For the time being, there's no solo mode. Even if you're alone in the lobby, you're always paired with two random players when the matchmaking starts. Playing with a dedicated squad is the best way to avoid frustration. Though the ping system works wonders, it'll never beat proper voice communication. This way you can inform each other when someone come across the items. Whoever picks it up can drop the Armor and Helmet (highlight them on the inventory screen and press X) so everybody can unlock it (Confirmed by Tagst and Markyshizzle).
If your friends don't play Apex, i highly recommend setting up a TA Session or search for people in the comment section in order to find dedicated players.

Hot Zones: As soon as the match starts, a random location will light up a blue beacon (marked by a big blue circle on the map screen). These are guaranteed to spawn high-tier loot. It is of course a highly contested location for players to drop. The closer it is to the dropship, the more players will be dropping there. However i noticed that players tend not to bother with these when it's too far away from the Dropship initial location. So keep that in mind if you want to stay out of trouble right at the beginning. The beacon (and the blue circle on the map screen) marking it's location will vanish as soon as the 1st safe zone/ring appears.
*Tip: when you're dropping, you can extend your flight a bit. After a while you'll lose altitude; to keep going, dive down a bit and go up again (think the wingsuit in Far Cry and Just Cause). This way you can reach distances that seemed impossible otherwise. Practice a bit and you'll get the hang of it in no time.

Supply Ships: As the match starts you can look out for one of these flying around the map, and after a few minutes it'll land. It has two icons on the map screen: it's current location and where it's gonna land (little green circle). Again, the closer it is to the Dropship initial location, the more contested it'll be. You don't need to wait for it to land; it's quite easy to drop on top as it's flying across the map. Another way to hop on it before it lands is to launch yourself in the air with those vertical yellow zip-lines (the ones with the big red balloon at the top) if they're close to the Supply Ship flight zone. When it lands it'll spawn zip-lines for players to board it. Again caution is required when approaching as many players will be on the lookout for these. When the match is about halfway done, another Supply Ship will spawn.

Care Packages: These are dropped occasionally throughout the match. The announcer will notify when one's coming, and so will a character from your squad, so pay attention! As soon as you hear that, check your map screen: it's drop location is marked with a pulsating small blue circle. It always contains 3 mid-to-high loot and most often than not at least one will be legendary. Beware thought: they usually drop in wide open areas, so check your surroundings before running to it. Still, checking Care Packages seems to be the best method so far. The chances of getting legendary stuff is quite high, and from my experience most players will outright ignore it unless it drops very close by.

Apex Pack's hidden bots: Spider-like robots that, once destroyed (a punch is enough), will drop mid-to-high tier loot. They can be hard to spot as they're usually hiding in out-of-the-way places like corners, rooftops, tunnels, crevices, etc. They're the same robot you see when you open a "Apex Pack", but with either purple or golden neon lights (there could be a blue one but i never seen it). If there's one nearby, you'll hear a high pitched robotic sound every now and then. It's hard to describe, but the sound itself sticks out from the rest of the ambient sound effects. As long as you're paying attention, you'll notice it. Recommend playing with headphones to have a better time finding it.

Location Tiers: Most named location on the map have tiers that'll dictate the quality of the loot you can find. Pay attention: As soon as you set foot on a major location, it'll show both it's name and tier on the left side of the screen (sometimes they're not tiered at all, so it'll only show it's name). If it shows "High Tier Loot" in purple, there's a high chance you'll find a legendary item lying around somewhere. Sadly, the location tiers are never the same from match to match, it's always random. Still, use that information to your advantage: If you're satisfied with your current gear/items, don't waste much time scavenging low level places.

Dead Player's loot boxes: Whenever a player die, they drop a box containing every item in their inventory. If they had a legendary item of any kind, the box will have a golden tint. Of course, this being a squad focused game, the presence of such a box can mean that it's late owner's teammates are nearby, specially if the player was killed recently. It goes without saying, but always make sure that the coast is clear before looting dead players.

That's it for now. I'm open for feedback, so if you want to add something, or correct me in any way, please feel free do so in the comments and i'll promptly edit the solution.
