A flak jacket is an item of protective 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, other projectiles, and even blades. Flak jackets started being worn around the time of the First Shinobi World War, replacing the plate armour common during the Warring States Period. They can be worn by ninja of every rank, but are mostly worn by chūnin rank or higher.

Styles

Each hidden village and several other factions and nations has their own design or designs of flak jacket.

Konohagakure, Sunagakure, and Kumogakure Worn after the Fourth Shinobi World War, these flak jackets are green. They are simple chest-guards with clipped-on shoulder pads with high-collars and a strap across the waist. The traditional Uzushiogakure symbol is no longer present on the back of the Konoha-nins' flak jackets, but is instead emblazoned onto an armband worn as part of the standard attire.
Konoha Flak Jacket
Konohagakure Worn for most of the series, these flak jackets are green. They have three scroll pouches on each side of their chest, a neck guard, extra padding over the shoulders (which is fastened on by steel buttons), and a zipper down the middle. The Uzushiogakure symbol is integrated onto the back of the jacket, symbolising the ties between the two villages.
Yamato Anbu Uniform
Konohagakure Worn by Konoha's Anbu, these flak jackets are steel grey. They come with steel gauntlets and seem to be fastened with a zipper, an interwoven band near the stomach, and two straps over the shoulders.

A stand-alone variant without a throat guard or protruding shoulder guards has been seen.
