Appears in Anime, Manga, Game and Movie

A flak jacket is an item of clothing popular among ninja. Flak jackets have several pockets and pouches that can be used to store and quickly access weapons and other supplies. When on missions, they provide at least partial protection from damage by blunt-force trauma, shrapnel, and other projectiles. Flak jackets started being worn around the time of the First Shinobi World War, replacing the Shinobi Battle Armour common during the Warring States Period. They are worn by most ninja of chūnin rank or higher; the anime sometimes depicts genin wearing flak jackets.
