Image:Tekuno.jpg|'''[[Konohagakure]] (current)''': Konohagakure flak jackets are green. They have three scroll pouches on each side of their chest for scrolls, medicine, and other ninja tools. For protection they include a neck guard and extra padding over the shoulders (which is fastened on by steel buttons). They also have a zipper down the middle. The crest of [[Uzushiogakure]] is integrated onto the back of the jacket, symbolising the ties Konoha had with the former village.

Image:Choza appearance.png| '''Konohagakure (movie variant)''': In ''[[Naruto Shippūden 4: The Lost Tower]]'', Minato's team was seen wearing a unique flak jacket. They are dull brown and came with angular shoulder guards, a throat guard, a neck guard, and one scroll pouch attached to the left shoulder. The padding was thinner on the sides and the front and back extend downwards. They also came with knee and elbow padding. It is possible that this was merely an experimental model as it hasn't been seen prior to or after the [[Third Shinobi World War]].

Image:ANBU Ibiki.png| '''Konohagakure (wartime variant)''': Worn during the [[Second Shinobi World War]], this flack jacket consists of a steel grey over-vest worn over Konohagakure's previous flack jacket. It bore a passive resemblence to the Land of Demon's flak jacket, but lacked a neck guard. It was connected by straps over the shoulders and hips. It also came with protruding shoulder guards, extensions to protect the lower throat and abdomen, and steel gauntlets. It has also been seen being worn on its own with neither an additional vest underneath nor protruding shoulder guards (as is the case with [[Kakashi Hatake]]). It was problably just a prototype as it was only worn by a selected few during the war.

Flak jackets are a form of padded protective clothing designed to provide at least partial protection from things such as blunt-force trauma, shrapnel and other projectiles. This can be seen when it protected Iruka Umino from kunai and fūma shuriken while he was searching for Naruto and the Scroll of Seals and was ambushed by Mizuki. They can also prevent lethal injuries from swords and other weapons as seen during Baki's fight with Hayate Gekkō. For the most part, they have superseded the plate armour widely used by shinobi during the Warring States Period and the First Shinobi World War. They are usually worn by chūnin and jōnin over their normal clothing in most villages, although the design varies among the villages and have also changed over time. The jackets are among the most iconic pieces of shinobi equipment. Most of them have pockets or scroll pouches, which can be used to store scrolls, weapons, and supplies. This allows a ninja to access them quickly and/or quietly with only one hand, as seen with Kakashi Hatake's case when he normally does this secretly to extract a kunai.
